Equipment is manufactured to meet standardized performance requirements. Manufacturers publish expanded performance data that details how the equipment performs at actual operating conditions. Applying the manufacturer’s performance data to your home’s load is essential to saving energy with the right unit.
This is information provided by the manufacturer to specify the capacity for a
particular model. You may hear cooling terms like 2-ton or 3.5-ton. These are nominal capacities at standard rating points. For heating systems, the Btu/h are expressed by how much heating capacity goes into the furnace (i.e., an 80% efficient, 80,000 Btu/h furnace receives enough fuel to create 64,000 Btu/h of output heat).
