How many watts do you need to run a 5000 BTU air conditioner?

The number of watt is dependent on the number of Amps and the number of volts in the outlet. When plugged into a 110-volt outlet, most 5,000-BTU air conditioners use only 5 Amps. The range for window-unit air conditioners is between 5,000 and 18,000 BTUs.
