I seem to get about 2.0 to 1.8 amps at the compressor during run cycle, on most of the 15 to 20 cu' boxes I have check lately, hardly ever below 1.6 amps. 





1 kilowatt hour of electricity
=
3413 British thermal units (Btu

By this conversion 264 watts of power for a 900 btu compressor at 100 percent efficiency would mean 2.29 amps per hours at 115 volts.  What am I doing wrong with this thinking?
