How Much Does it Cost to Operate a Commercial AC?

The cost of running a commercial air conditioner varies based on a number of factors, including the unit type and the building size. Our AC professionals suggest using your electric bill to project your cost. First, look on your air conditioner to find the watt-hours (Wh) metric, which indicates how much energy the unit uses per hour. To convert that number into kilowatt-hours (kWh), multiply by a factor of 1,000 (1,000 Wh = 1 kWh). Next, multiply the kilowatt-hours by the cost per kWh listed on your utility bill. For example, if you have a 1,500 Wh (1.5 kWh) unit and you pay 10 cents per kWh, your hourly cost to operate the air conditioner will be 15 cents. You can use that basic hourly projection to estimate the cost of running your commercial AC unit for a day, a week, a month or a full season. Not sure where to find all this information? Our professional AC staff will be happy to help.
