The amp draw on a room air conditioner with the cooling capacity of 10,000 BTU/h should be approximately 9.8 amps. The amp draw may vary based on numerous factors. The answer of 9.8 amps is base on supply voltage of 115 volts, 60 hertz, and single phase. In a room air conditioner using a charge of 15.5 ounces of R22 refrigerant, with a high side pressure of 350 psig and a low side pressure of 150 psig.
