Q) How do I determine the correct capacity of the air-conditioner I need for my needs?
A) The general accepted sizing guideline for a standard hospitality room is 30 BTU/sq.ft. Therefore, 300 sq.ft. rooms generally require a 9000 BTU unit, 400 sq.ft. Rooms require a 12000 BTU unit etc. Careful consideration must be taken for rooms near high humidity areas and near beachfront. Oversizing the air-conditioner may result in mold and mildew and short-cycling of the unit.
