Very Elementary Question re: socket amperage
I'd like to plug in a new air conditioner into a regular 3-prong wall socket. The unit's literature states that it is 12 amp cooling/15 amp receptacle. I have used my 12 amp vaccuum cleaner in this socket for extended periods (up to 45 minutes to an hour) without blowing a fuse. Does that mean this air conditoner will work in this socket? Thanks!
