How Much Gas Will Ac Use In My Car?
I Have A Honda Element (:
They did a check on cars with air conditioning, about using it (the airconditioning) versus driving with the windows open and no A/C, and they found that because of modern aerodynamics, cars were MORE efficient with the windows rolled up and the A/C ON, than they were with the A/C OFF and the windows rolled down.
A/C compressors, expecially the newer rotary compressors, don't use much power at all to operate, and are very efficient.
I have a 1982 GMC pickup, and it has a huge compressor, and the guy at the air conditioning supply house, said that the compressor I have takes 27 HP to run.
Right now the modern compressors only take 2 or 3 horsepower to run. In your car, you are better off keeping the windows closed and the A/C running.
What Is The Difference In Wattage Usage Between A...?
Home Air Conditioning Unit And A Regular Size Pedestal Fan. I Know It'S A Huge Difference. I'M Mostly Asking To See How Long I Could Run A Fan Instead Of Turning The Thermostat Down On The Air Conditioner And Raising My Bill. Thanks In Advance. 🙂
Could be 60W versus 1000W, depending on the size of the AC. The size of AC units is measured in BTU. For more different BTU size units, check out resource. What is the size of your AC?
Is There A Solar Powered Compact Air Conditioner I Can Buy For My Car?
I Don'T Have An Air Conditioner Is This Car I Purchased A Few Years Ago. About Four Months Out Of The Year, It Is Really Hot! I Don'T Want To Spend $3,000 For An Ac. Seems Like There Should Be Some Good Technology Out There, But Have Not Really Found Anything Worth Buying Yet. I Only Found A Solar Unit That Pulls The Heat Out Of The Car When It Is Parked.
No, there is no such thing, yet.
Right now, solar panels (while cool, and eco friendly and all...) are not "great" at generating power. What I mean is, solar panels do create "free" electricity, it's only a little bit of electricity. It doesn't take very much power to run a small fan that sucks hot air out of the car.
But an air conditioner compressor (the thing that cools the air) takes a LOT of power compared to a fan. So you would need a very large (larger than the car) grouping (array) of solar panels to create enough power to run an air conditioner.
You could buy an electric air conditioner, run it off batteries (put 6 or so in the trunk) and charge the batteries with a solar array while the car was parked. Something like 100 hours of sunlight should give you 2 or 3 hours of air conditioning. Of course, the cost would be closer to the $3000 you don't want to spend.
Sorry there's not (yet) a super efficient solar panel available that can turn 5 minutes of sun into enough power to run a car, plus air conditioning all day.
How Many Tons In An Air Conditioning Unit Are Required To Heat/Cool A 2 Story 1400 Sq/Ft Townhouse In Sc?
I would go with a 3 ton, (heat pump since you want to heat & cool) not a 2 1/2, due to the fact that a 2 story home is harder to distribute the heat or cooling evenly. The return air is usually on the first floor, and the upstairs air doesn't get recirculated as well as downstairs air. Heat from the attic in summer will have you sweating at night sleeping, so better to have a little extra cooling for the summer time.
