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. Locate the room size in the chart below to select the appropriate BTUs. Then use the product information to select the unit for your room. When cooling rooms with uninsulated ceilings, great rooms, or southern or western sun exposures - step up to the next BTU size.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by fine no problems this is a fine air conditoner... it works with what i imagine is a normal amount of noise (easily obscurred by music) & gets my space pretty cool tho if i wanted it icy cold i dont know if it could make it happen... it is rated for 900 sq feet & thats what i have so in a smaller space you could achieve a colder situation im sure... all in all its adequate to keep my studio comfortable on hot days which is what i was seeking... & i do feel good about the newer non-ozone depleting refrigerant... as well its not too overwhelmingly huge... 6/23/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by super cooling I bought this AC for my mother's living room, a small room, with the hope that it would cool that room plus her entire first floor as long as the doors to the other rooms were left open. And so it does. We have been keeping it on low and even at that setting it works very well and is reasonably quiet. I am very pleased with it and given the recent weather consider it to be one of my newest best friends. 7/7/10
Rated 5 out of 5 Very nice unit This unit installed easily and works very well. Almost no vibration noise from the compressor. Sleek front cover. I like it a lot, and thought the price was very reasonable. 6/11/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprisingly Quiet!!!! I'm far more satisfied with this A.C. unit than the Friedrich I had in my living room. This Frigidaire A.C. is surprisingly quiet, quieter than the Friedrich, and powerful enough to cool my living room, kitchen and hallway with the aid of an exhaust window fan located in the back bedroom which pulls cold air down the length of the hallway.......nice!!!! The remote's LCD temp display/control feature is a first for me and I have to admit it's a little on the gimmicky side........but I still like it. The air direction louvers are oddly shaped but do an adequate job of directing airflow..........I've seen better. The LED indicators are bright enough from across the room but reading the indicator settings is virtually impossible unless you're close to the unit......close enough to change settings via the touch pad. The air ionizer is also a plus......nice feature!!!! The permanent washable filter saves me money and that's a good thing!!!! If I had to make this purchase again......I would......with confidence!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! 6/11/12
