Although ton is used to refer to weight of an object in day to day life, it is actually connected to unit of refrigeration or cooling effect. Refrigeration is the term used to refer to 12,000 B.T.U.s/hour (British Thermal Units/Hour) of cooling effect. If you buy an air conditioner of 24,000 B.T.U.s/hour, then it has capacity of 5 tons.
