How to Choose a Room Air Conditioner
Compared to large capacity central units, room air conditioners have several advantages. The initial cost of a room air conditioning unit is significantly lower than the cost of central air. Because room air conditioners are designed for cooling small spaces, operating costs are reduced. And, room air conditioners can provide personalized temperature and humidity controls that central systems cannot.

Calculating Cooling Capacity
Cooling capacity is the critical factor in properly selecting a room air conditioner. Cooling capacity is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs) and typical models will range in capacity from 5,000 BTUs to 28,500 BTUs.

Choosing an undersized unit will overwork the unit and it will not cool properly. Choosing an oversized unit will cost more to buy and operate and it will not dehumidify properly.

We can help you to calculate capacity. Be prepared to provide specific information on:
  • Room Dimensions
  • A simple floor plan to show the location of doors and north-facing windows
  • The number of people it will serve
  • Sources of heat such as lamps, TV and appliances
  • An explanation of what's above the intended room
  • Your insulation provisions

Cooling Capacity by Room Size
Measure the length and width of the area to be cooled. Multiply the length by the width to determine square footage or square meters. When cooling rooms with uninsulated ceilings, great rooms, or southern or western sun exposures - step up to the next BTU size.

Product Reviews
Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good value The only bad thing about it is are the unbelievably stupidly made auger wheels to direct the air flow. A huge amount of time needed to get them satisfactorily positioned and then it's not worth the effort moving them. I also don't understand why this model couldn't be made with the fresh air vent option. But on the whole it does its job excellently. 8/1/11
Rated 2 out of 5 by It cools ... but ... The wall that separates the inside air handler and the outside exchanger coils is made of styrafoam. And it isn't coated - you can practically see through it. Unbelieveable!! Definitely not made to last as this will surely degrade. If I had know this, I would have bought something else. 3/25/12
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not worth the effort It would of been a great deal, but like the review before me said the vents are so cheap that it isn't worth the time to set them to where they work to cool the room..It makes it to where it only cools the immediate area. 7/9/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by very noisy Very noisy even on low, and the eco-feature did not work properly. I also agree the paddle-type fins that you have to turn a dial to adjust air direction were annoyingly fussy. And at night you can't see most of the face to be able to change fan speed or temp. etc. without using a flashlight. It "chattered" so much I couldn't sleep - the manual says this is normal for the new high-efficiency compressors, but I think they know people will complain about that so they put that in to deflect complaints. This went back to the store within 30 days of purchase. We purchased a different brand and it is so quiet I can't believe the difference - and no chattering! This is just an inferior product. 7/18/13
