Finding an air conditioner suitable for a small room can be tricky. Selecting one too large or small could leave your climate control inadequate and energy bills skyrocket. To select an adequate air conditioning unit, the best way to make sure you purchase is to compare BTU ratings listed for each appliance.
BTU measures cooling capacity directly related to square footage of space you wish to cool. Manufacturers make the sizing process straightforward with appliances by providing an easy method to calculate BTUs based on ceiling height and floor area. Simply measure or estimate using tape measures the room in question and divide its BTUs according to this formula for an accurate estimation of what amount will be necessary to cool it effectively.
Small rooms typically need between 5,000 and 6,500 BTUs of cooling capacity. If they’re connected, consider purchasing an air conditioner that has higher BTU ratings so as to cool both spaces simultaneously and save both money and provide better climate control in both. Doing this will save money and provide enhanced climate control throughout all spaces involved.
A portable air conditioner with around 5,000 to 8,000 BTU (British Thermal Units) capacity is suitable for a small room. Brands like LG, Frigidaire, and Honeywell offer good options. Consider energy efficiency, noise level, and features like programmable settings for the best fit.
If you need an air conditioner that’s portable yet still cools efficiently, check out an evaporative cooler from BLACK+DECKER.
