Calculate Btu  Air Conditioner
AirConditioning Btu CalculationsDo you know how to calculate the right size of airconditioner Btu capacity for your room? Most people rely on his own aircon contractor in getting the right airconditioner BTU capacitor for them. But you are the one using the airconditioning so you should know yourself best.
Are you the one who like to blast your airconditioner to the coolest? Or are you the person who feel that turning on 2526 Degree Celsius is adequate for you?
It is important for you to know how to calculate the airconditioner BTU because if done incorrectly, you might end up buying an undersize or oversize airconditioner BTU.
An undersized airconditioner BTU will not be adequate to cool your room, or it may take a long time to cool it especially the weather now is very hot.
It is also not cost effective getting an oversized airconditioner BTU. Due to the oversized airconditioner BTU capacity, the airconditioner cool the room too fast which causes the compressor to cutin (Start) and cutout (Stop) too often.
Each time the compressor cutin to run, the power consumption is about 6 times higher than its running current. With this cycle on and off too often it decreases the efficiency and increase your electrical bill.
It will also cause your compressor to have a shorter lifespan too. Replacing a new compressor can cost as much as SGD$900 and above depend on the size of your compressor.
So now do you think knowing how to calculate BTU for your airconditioners and getting the right Btu airconditioner for your room is important?
Cooling Capacity The cooling capacity of an airconditioning unit is the ability to remove heat from a room and in usually measured in Btu/hr. The higher the Btu rating, the more heat will be removed. It is important that the room airconditioner BTU is large enough for the room to be cooled.
AirConditioner BTU Calculation How do you calculate btu your airconditioner for your room? Please note that the method of calculate btu mention below is just an estimation to determine the amount of airconditioner btu need to cool your room. Giving a consideration of 12 people is staying in the room. Step 1: Calculate the volume of the room  Length x Breadth x Height = Ans / 2 (answer divided by 2) For example  2.5m x 3m x 2.5m = 18.75 / 2 = 9.375 Step 2: With the given answer (9.375). Match with the closest BTU capacity airconditioner below with your answer which is between 9,000Btu and 12,000Btu. List of airconditioner BTU rating: • 9,000Btu • 12,000Btu • 15,000Btu • 18,000Btu • 21,000Btu • 24,000Btu And so on... Therefore you should get a 9,000Btu airconditioner if you are afraid of cold and get a 12,000Btu airconditioner if you are a person who are afraid of hot by getting a slightly bigger airconditioning BTU. What if you had already installed an undersize airconditioner? Here are some methods you may want to adopt: 1) Using curtain to partition your working area. 2) Adding a fan. 3) Adding another airconditioner.
