**1 ton(s) = 12000.00 BTU/hr**, our **ton to btu calculator** is used for conversion from **tonnage** of an air conditioning unit into **British Thermal Units (BTUs)**.

For instance, if you have a

2-tonair conditioning unit, using the Tons to BTU converter, you would find that it can remove24,000 BTUsof heat from a space each hour (2 tons×12,000 BTUs/ton=24,000 BTUs).

## Ton to BTU Calculator

Tons Converted to | BTU/hour |
---|---|

0.5 ton | 6,000 BTU |

1 ton | 12,000 BTU |

1.5 ton | 18,000 BTU |

2 ton | 24,000 BTU |

2.5 ton | 30,000 BTU |

3 ton | 36,000 BTU |

3.5 ton | 42,000 BTU |

4 ton | 48,000 BTU |

5 ton | 60,000 BTU |

## Ton to BTU Conversion Formula

The conversion formula from **tons** to **BTUs** is:

**1 ton = 12,000 BTU/hour**

To convert from **tons** to **BTUs**, you simply multiply the number of **tons** by **12,000**. The formula can be expressed as:

**BTU/hour = Tons × 12,000**

For **1.5 tons** of cooling capacity, the calculation would be:

**BTUs = 1.5 × 12,000 = 18,000 BTUs**

This means a

1.5-tonair conditioning unit can remove18,000 BTUsof heat per hour.

**Also…..**

To convert **3 tons** to **BTUs**, you can use the conversion factor where **1 ton equals 12,000 BTU/hour**.

```
3 tons × 12,000 BTU/ton = 36,000 BTU/hour
```

The

3 tons is equal to 36,000 BTU/hour.

## How To convert Ton to BTU?

Identify the tonnage: Determine the number oftonsyou want to convert.

Apply the conversion formula: Multiply the tonnage by12,000.

Express the result: The result will be inBTU/hour.

Convert **2.5 tons** to **BTUs**

- Tonnage:
2.5 tons- Apply the formula:
2.5 × 12,000 = 30,000- Result:
2.5 tons = 30,000 BTU/hour

Convert **4 tons** to **BTUs**

- Tonnage:
4 tons- Apply the formula:
4 × 12,000 = 48,000- Result:
4 tons = 48,000 BTU/hour

## How much BTU in 1.5 ton AC

A** 1.5-ton AC unit has a cooling capacity of 18,000 BTU/hour**.

To calculate the **BTU** rating for a **1.5-ton AC unit**, we simply apply the conversion formula:

**1.5 tons × 12,000 BTU/ton = 18,000 BTU/hour**

This size AC unit is commonly used in medium-sized rooms or small apartments. For example, it could effectively cool:

- A
**700-900 square foot**apartment - A large living room or master bedroom
- A small office space

## How many BTU is 2 ton?

A** 2-ton AC unit has a cooling capacity of 24,000 BTU/hour**.

To calculate the **BTU** rating for a **2-ton system**, we use the same conversion formula:

**2 tons × 12,000 BTU/ton = 24,000 BTU/hour**

This size is suitable for larger spaces, such as:

- A
**900-1,200 square foot**home - A small to medium-sized house
- Multiple rooms or an open-plan living area

## How many BTU is a 3 ton AC unit?

The** 3-ton AC unit has a cooling capacity of 36,000 BTU/hour**.

Applying the conversion formula to a **3-ton AC unit**:

**3 tons × 12,000 BTU/ton = 36,000 BTU/hour**

This size is typically used for:

- Larger homes (
**1,500-2,000 square feet**) - Commercial spaces
- Open floor plan residences

A

1,800 square foottwo-story home in a warm climate might require a3-ton (36,000 BTU/hour)AC unit to effectively cool all rooms and maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the house.
