# Calculating AC Unit Watts

I'm trying to calculate the watts used from my AC unit. Below I am including my sticker label that's on the AC Unit along with a electrical data sheet I found online for my model.

So far this is where my understanding is at:

The Fan Motor is 1/6 HP from the label which would be equivalate to 124.3082 watts

The data sheet confuses me as for the "condenser fan" in the top table, it has "Watts" listed as 210 along with "Motor hp (w)" as the same as the label. What would the "Watts" for "condenser fan" row signify? In addition, the bottom table has "Condenser Coil Fan Motor" with 1.1 for "Full load amps". Would I multiply that with the average Nominal voltage? But then that would be over the 124 Watts I get from the hp convertion.

For the Compressor, I think I understand RLA is the load at regular operation while the LRA is the load at the very begging when the compressor is at idle (so I think I just care about RLA for when it's running).

So to calculate,  V * I = Power ~ 240 V * 10.3 A = 2472 Watts for the Compressor. Would I use the Nominal Voltage instead for this calculation? I'm not entirely clear as to why it wouldn't be 240 volts.

• Power will increase with voltage but 10% V tolerance is stated without effects on rated load amps , so I would increase I_RL by 5% and V by 5% above 230V May 12, 2022 at 19:40
• The "Motor hp (W)" line is almost certainly the mechanical output power the motor delivers, not the power it draws from the electrical supply. The Electrical input power would be the "Watts" line below that. The discrepancy between the "210W" from that line and the (1.1A x 230V) from the other label might be a result of the motor's inductive power factor... May 12, 2022 at 20:41
