No that is very wrong.  BTU is energy, often used when dealing with thermal energy. 1 BTU = about 253 calories. Relabel your image as 4,554,000 calories and you will see how ridiculous it is.



Yes I have a degree in Physics...son...I know wtf calories are in relation to heat.

Anyways...yet another milestone...50K posts.





inb4 GRATS and his 144K posts :)


/e When you KNOW wtf you're talking about...lemme know...you're just spamming this post in the hopes of getting it closed. Grow up :/

You should demand a refund for your air conditioner and for your degree in physics, since neither are working properly...

The British thermal unit (BTU or Btu) is a traditional unit of energy equal to about 1055 joules. It is the amount of energy needed to cool or heat one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. In scientific contexts the BTU has largely been replaced by the SI unit of energy, the joule.

The unit is most often used as a measure of power (as BTU/h) in the power, steam generation, heating, and air conditioning industries, and also as a measure of agricultural energy production (BTU/kg).[verification needed] It is still used in metric English-speaking countries (such as Canada), and remains the standard unit of classification for air conditioning units manufactured and sold in many non-English-speaking metric countries.[verification needed] In North America, BTU describes the heat value (energy content) of fuels.


...as I said...get a clue :/

Yep and your picture shows you moving thermal energy from outside your house, to inside your house....

No it doesn't...LT SEE...it shows 18K BTU coming from the A/C unit...I could possibly make the picture simpler for you.

Now I could wire an A/C unit to act as a heat pump, but that would be silly.


Now please stop spamming.


/e Yeah, you must be right...just think if I hooked it up correctly :/

Yep it shows 4,554,000 calories (18k BTU) being moved towards your computer. Your air conditioner is hooked up backwards.
