if it’s 14×16, 12×12 and 10×10 feet rooms?

hoosing the right size of a split air conditioner for different room sizes is crucial for efficiency and comfort. The capacity of an air conditioner is typically measured in tons or BTUs (British Thermal Units) per hour. Here’s a general guideline for selecting the appropriate AC size for rooms that are 14×16, 12×12, and 10×10 feet
10×10 Feet Room
  • With an area of 100 square feet, this is a smaller room
  • A 0.75 to 1-ton AC (approximately 9,000 to 12,000 BTUs) should be sufficient for a room of this size.
12×12 Feet Room
  • This room is 144 square feet.
  • A 1-ton AC (about 12,000 BTUs) is usually adequate for this size of a room, again considering additional factors such as sun exposure and insulation.
14×16 Feet Room:
  • This room has an area of 224 square feet.
  • Generally, for a room of this size, an AC with a capacity of about 1.5 to 2 tons (or approximately 18,000 to 24,000 BTUs) would be suitable, depending on factors like ceiling height, room insulation, number of windows, and sun exposure.
Remember, these are rough estimates. Several other factors can influence the ideal AC capacity for a room, including
Ceiling Height

Higher ceilings mean more volume to cool, requiring a more powerful AC.

Insulation Quality

Better insulation reduces cooling requirements.

Window Size and Quantity

More or larger windows can mean more heat ingress, especially if they face the sun.

Number of Occupants

More people in the room can generate additional heat.

Electronic Appliances

Electronic Appliances

Geographical Location

Hotter climates generally require more powerful air conditioning.
