What size air conditioner do I need?

Air conditioner sizes are rated by BTUs, and the size of the room you wish to cool determines how many BTUs you need. 

Measure the width and length of the room and multiply those numbers together to determine the square footage.

The higher the BTU, the more square footage the air conditioner will cool. Use this helpful guide below to decide which BTU is right for your area:

  • 5k BTU: 150 Sq. Ft.
  • 10k BTU: 450 Sq. Ft.
  • 15k BTU: 850 Sq. Ft.
  • 22k BTU: 1,300 Sq. Ft.
  • 28k BTU: 1,900 Sq. Ft.
