Air conditioners are widely used all around in the present day world. Air conditioners not only conditions the air but also controls and maintains the space's temperature, humidity, air movement and cleanliness and to give comfort to the occupants. Conditioning the air in a particular space depends upon the capacity of an air conditioner. The capacity of an air conditioner is calculated by "Ton", and the efficiency of an air conditioner is calculated as coefficient of performance. This paper
