Explanation:
+ required heat dissipation in BTU
Hello
That's what I'd say, although kW/hours is more normal for the electrical specification. Despite the company name "BTU", in your context it is more probably "British Thermal Units".
Cheers

Explanation:
This is why I like to use this site - I thought it was odd that BTU was a company, but it was all I got from the search I did. Now I'm the wiser for a subject that I will be dealing with soon myself.
I too use "absorption" but I was sidekicked by the dictionary check I did. Does Derek agree that it means the same think?
