Choosing the Right Air Conditioner Size for a Room
- 22 Mar, 2021
To help assist our customers with their choice of the size of air conditioning unit they need, we recommend the following:
When taking in primary factors, the size of the room is one to consider. The rule of thumb is the larger the room is, the larger the cooling capacity is needed. Please take note, as well as measuring the floor space of the room into consideration, there are also other factors that need to be considered. Such as high ceilings, insulation and whether the room is situated in a sunny position.
Shady or Sunny Room
Another consideration as mentioned is whether the room is bathed in sunlight all day which will subsequently require an air conditioner that works harder during the summer months. Meaning the room will need a bigger air conditioning unit. The same applies for rooms during winter months.
Insulation of the Room
Your insulation plays a big part in retaining the air-conditioned air within your room. A poorly insulated room tends to retain too much warmth during summer and let out the heat during winter. You will need a larger air conditioning unit to counteract this.
Amount of People in the Room
People are warm blooded beings, due to the increased body heat, the more people there are in an air-conditioned room, the larger the air conditioning unit you will need. As you can see there are numerous factors to consider when choosing the right air conditioning system for your room. If in doubt, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly team at Aircons Online for ensuring your purchase is the most appropriate air conditioner unit that suits your needs.
