5. How do I determine the air conditioner capacity needed for my home?
Choosing the right size system when shopping for an air conditioner is extremely important. Units that are bigger than necessary may not be able to remove the humidity effectively, resulting in an uncomfortable room. A quick and easy way to determine the right size is to refer to the chart below. (Please note: This chart is an estimate only - a load calculation is needed to properly determine the size unit needed for your home. If you are considering replacing your A/C unit we can provide this information to you with a free estimate.)
|Area To Be Cooled (sq. ft.)||Capacity Needed (Btu/Hour)|
|100 to 150||5,000|
|150 to 250||6,000|
|250 to 300||7,000|
|300 to 350||8,000|
|350 to 400||9,000|
|400 to 450||10,000|
|450 to 550||12,000|
|550 to 700||14,000|
|700 to 1000||18,000|
|1,000 to 1,200||21,000|
|1,200 to 1,400||23,000|
|1,400 to 1,500||24,000|
|1,500 to 2,000||30,000|
Make adjustments for the following circumstances:
- If the room is heavily shaded, reduce capacity by 10%.
- If the room is very sunny, increase capacity by 10%.
- If more than two people regularly occupy the room, add 600 BTUs for each additional person.
- If the unit is used in a kitchen, increase capacity by 4,000 BTUs.
- Consider where you install the unit. If you are mounting an air conditioner near the corner of a room, look for a unit that can send the airflow in the right direction.
