Looked thru the Trane and Carrier web pages, but couln't find any specifics
For a central residential air conditioner, a pretty basic non-high
efficiency unit, of 3 tons, what is
"typically" the current draw ?
Are these for 220 V ?
If you need to know because you are sizing the
circuit to feed the A/C, you need precise info
which includes not only the compressor but the
condensor fan motor as well. The mfr will stipulate
the minimum branch circuit size and fusing requirements.
Yes, residential units run on 240V.
A "typical" 3 ton unit might draw 16.5 Amps plus maybe 3 Amps
for the condensor fan. The blower for the air handler adds more,
but likely on another circuit.
Post more info about what you are looking for.
