Have you ever wondered, Why capacity of the domestic refrigerator and Air Conditioner (AC) is different though both are refrigeration system? What is the basic difference between them with respect to the cooling capacity?
The capacity of the domestic refrigerator is normally rated in 'Litre'. Litre is actually a unit of volume and it is applicable to the domestic refrigerator while dealing with space/volume to be cooled. Thus, liter capacity actually indicates the volume or space to be cooled by the domestic refrigerator.
On the other hand, the capacity of Air Conditioner (AC) is given by term 'Ton of refrigeration'.
What is one Ton refrigeration?
