A Very Quick Guide to A/C Sizing
Air Conditioner Sizing Chart by Square Footage
Buying an air conditioner is an important purchase, and it is worth your time to make sure you do it right.
However, since there are many additional factors that influence the precise number of BTUs necessary to effectively and efficiently cool your specific area, we highly recommend that you speak with an expert to ensure the most accurate measurements.
The AC Sizing chart below can help you get a general idea when sizing an air conditioner for an individual room. First, find the square footage of your room and then check its corresponding BTU requirements.
This chart is only a starting point, though, and you should not base your purchase decision on this information alone. For a more precise estimate, you can use our HVAC sizing calculator. The most accurate method of sizing is with a professional ACCA Manual J Calculation, and we highly recommend this before making any HVAC purchase.
Please contact our experts with any other questions. Happy sizing!
