Both my 13,500 BTU Carrier Air V and my 15,000 Advent Air replacement for the Air V, draw 13.5 in normal operation.. Per the labels. Just so you know, I actually read them.

Today by the way I was sitting there watching TV, Both the above running, and the TV, 2 DVR's 2 Digital converters and other background stuff.. Tripped the park 50 amp, the two A/C's are on different legs. 4th time it's happened in 2 days but last time I was cooking with electricity..
