BTU refers to the energy required to heat one pound or 0.45kg of water by one degree therefore making it easier for you to calculate the best air conditioner size for your home or office.
Several factors affect the amount of energy needed to heat or cool a room such as:
- The area of the house.
- The number of floors in a building.
- The height of the ceilings.
- The number of people occupying or living in the area etc.
If the air conditioner unit is too large, it will shut off before dehumidifying an area and if it is too small, it will run constantly thus costing you money without ever cooling or heating the room.
The common types of air conditioner sizes are the 12000 BTU, 18000 BTU and 24000 BTU.
We’ve put together the list below to help you determine the air conditioner size needed to heat or cool your home.
- 0-12 sqm = 9,000BTU
- 12-24 sqm = 12000BTU
- 26-36 sqm = 18000BTU
- 36-47 sqm = 24000BTU
- 50-68 sqm = 32000BTU
