Nothing beats the pleasure of coming home to a room with the right temperature. When summer hits and you have a well-functioning air-conditioning unit in your space, you can easily relax and sleep to your heart’s content. On the other hand, it’s not very easy to tell how big or small your air conditioner should be by just looking at your room. You need to consider some factors before buying one to ensure that you get the best value for your money.
Should I get a cooling unit with higher BTU to make the air in my room cool fast?
It’s important to know how big or small your room is because the air-conditioner that you need to get should fall into the right BTU range. You don’t need a unit with very high BTU if your room is small as it will only cause too much humidity. Likewise, you don’t want to put a small air-conditioner in your big room as it will consume too much energy. If you want to make sure that your room gets cold fast with the air-conditioner that you have, check your room size and refer to a BTU range calculator to get accurate results. You can easily download an app on your cellphone or go to any website that features British Thermal Units.
I already have an old air conditioner how many BTU does it have?
If you are unsure of the BTU and room size that you have, you can have an HVAC technician check it for you. These two things are basic, but they are vital if you want to have energy savings. If your air cooling unit is too big for your room, you might be throwing out your money on your monthly electric bills.
