What BTUH 3.0E-37 means

In all the Haier Air Conditioners spec, they listed cooling BTUH (Max) at 3.0E-37

what does this 3.0E-37 really means?

Is it 8000 BTU or 12000 BTU?

Haier has 3.0E-37 all through their specs for different sized units. Also shown for watts heating. I think it was a generic placeholder (zero?) to be filled in when they finalized specifications. You will have to look elsewhere for actual specifications.

well, in math, its actually means exponential notation in 3.0 E-37 = 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000003

But check ALL the Haier portable Air Conditioners cooling spec and also google this 3.0 E-37, its all in Haier Air Conditioner specs of their cooling, strangely for all models, regardless 8000, 10000, 12000, 14000 btuh.

Ignore Number - use model number instead

The number given for the rating makes no sense; it is written in scientific notation as 3.0E-32 which is easily wtitten in floating point notation as 0.000000000000000000000000000000003 (there are 32 zeros ). Makes no sense...and my research shows this error is seen on numerous different Haier models.

Some common sense can be applied to model number. Take the first two digits after the initial alphabetical characters and that should be the BTUs of the unit expressed in 1000's. For instance I have a HPF14XCM-B... it is a 14,000 BTU unit. Use
same logic on model QPHD10AXLB... 10,000 BTU unit.

Hope this helps.
