Summer is nearly upon us and if last year is any indication it’s going to be another scorcher. Will your old air conditioner be up to the challenge of keeping you cool? If it’s time for a new model then you know just the type of AC unit to swap out. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t rethink you’re cooling scheme.
One of the most popular types of air conditioners is a portable unit that can easily be rolled from room to room. This is perfect for someone who doesn’t want to cool down an entire home where only one or two rooms are being used. A portable AC is great to park by the kitchen when your oven is going full tilt.
As you go shopping for that new air conditioner you want to pay attention to the label when it comes to the refrigerants. What you want to look for is the eco-friendly R410A refrigerant. The other types aren’t illegal but they are being phased out. Don’t get stuck with a polluter!
When it comes to capacity the following is a good guideline to follow:
- Small room: 5,000 – 6,000 BTU for 100-300 sq. ft.
- Medium room: 7,000 – 8,200 BTU for 250-550 sq. ft.
- Large room: 9,800 to 12,500 BTU’s for 350-950 sq. ft. area.
