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 4.2 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by good for what you pay for I had a large room to cool. I bought the exactly same ac a couple years ago, which had chronicle problems and finally it stopped sending a cool air. So I looked for a new and ended up to buy another one of the same. Why? Because it seems to be the best performer for the price. My new machine is working very good and I am very happy about it. So, probably what I got before was a lemon. 8/10/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Air Conditioner After our old 10000 BTU died and facing a heat wave, we went out and purchased this air conditioner. Pros: HUGE cooling capacity. This unit can cool over 1600 square feet. I turned on my furnace fan and it is cooled enough to cool the whole house! Power saver mode is great, cycles the air conditioner on only when the preset temp drops. I use that overnight when we are all in bed. Air louvers are very cleverly designed and allow for very accurate control of the air flow. Cons: BIG. HEAVY. BULKY. Did I mention heavy? Ok, well it is 25000 BTUs! The task of installing this A/C is made simplier by the fact that the housing and the actual A/C unit can be seperated. One installs the housing first and then (with the help of another person) places the 'guts' into the frame. This was a relatively simple task, but plan for another able-bodied person to help with the install. Bottome line: it is 101 degrees outside right now (7/7/12) and it is 70 degrees in my home. Great unit with a great warranty (7 years). I highly recommend this unit. Dave 7/7/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by nana love it no problems runs great 8/12/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by bad customer service When I purchased the unit it worked great. But after a week the compressor went out. I called customer service and they set up service for the unit. The service center fixed the unit after two week and I reinstalled the unit. This year the first time I went to use the unit it ran all night without cooling the room. I called customer service and they gave me a phone number to call for a service. The first available service date for repair is two weeks out. I had this unit a year and have been unable to use it. Frigidaire makes good products but when they break getting help is a headache. 6/21/13
