Air Con Calculator
establish what size Air Conditioning Unit you will need, follow
these simple instructions:
Air Conditioners as with heaters are measured in British Thermal
Units (BTU's). A cool air calculator can be found on our sister
site climate hire - click here to use the cool air calculator
To establish what BTU capacity will be required, simply multiply
to dimensions of the room to be cooled.
e.g.: length x breadth x height
Then multiply this final figure by 5 - always measure and
calculate in feet.
e.g.: 18 x 12 x 10 = 2160 Cubic Feet 21.60 x 5= 10,800
The Air Conditioner you would require for a this is a Medium Air
This room size measurement is inclusive of up to 4 persons, a pc
and a photocopier. For each additional person and electrical unit
increase the total power requirement by 400 BTU's
e.g.: in a room with 8 persons, a pc and a photocopier.
10,800 + 4 x 400 = 12,400 BTU's
The Air Conditioner you would now require for this is a Large Air
Please remember that all air conditioners must be able to vent
the accumulated hot air in to the external atmosphere, and
consideration must be given to site them near to an open window of
below a suspended ceiling. We can provide you with additional
ducting at small extra charge.
