Choosing the right air conditioner for your home can be a difficult task when the temperature outside is too hot. This article will help you find the perfect AC unit for your needs, no matter what they may be.
We’ll give you information on how to calculate BTU’s and why it’s important to get an energy efficient model. -How to Calculate BTU’s: You can calculate your heating and cooling needs by using the following equation – Cooling Capacity (in BTUs) = Room Footprint X 0.08, or if you are looking to cool a specific area of the house then multiply that square footage number times .33 for each room in that area.
For example, if I was trying to find an air conditioner with a capacity between 800 BTU’s and 1200 BTU’s, then my calculation would be as follows: A 15×15 ft space requires 800BTUS A 20x25ft space will require 100BTUS A 30x30ft space will require 1667BTUS.
