The AC Capacity Calculator helps you determine the required capacity of an air conditioner for a specific room or space. This ensures that the AC unit you choose will effectively cool the area without wasting energy.

### Formula of Ac Capacity Calculator

To calculate the capacity of an air conditioner (AC), you can use the following formula:

Where:

**BTU**stands for British Thermal Unit, a measure of thermal energy.**Area in square feet**is the size of the room or space you want to cool.**Cooling Factor**is a constant that depends on the climate and insulation quality. A common value for residential cooling is 20 BTU per square foot.

### General Terms Table

Here is a table with pre-calculated BTU values for different room sizes to help you quickly determine the AC capacity needed:

Room Size (sq ft) | Cooling Factor | Required BTU |
---|---|---|

100 | 20 | 2000 |

200 | 20 | 4000 |

300 | 20 | 6000 |

400 | 20 | 8000 |

500 | 20 | 10000 |

600 | 20 | 12000 |

700 | 20 | 14000 |

800 | 20 | 16000 |

900 | 20 | 18000 |

1000 | 20 | 20000 |

### Example of Ac Capacity Calculator

Let's walk through an example to illustrate how to use the formula.

Suppose you have a room that is 250 square feet. To calculate the required BTU:

- Identify the area of the room: 250 square feet.
- Use the Cooling Factor: 20 BTU per square foot.
- Apply the formula:

BTU=250×20=5000

So, you would need an AC unit with a capacity of 5000 BTU to effectively cool the 250 square feet room.

### Most Common FAQs

**Q1: What is a BTU?**A BTU, or British Thermal Unit, is a measure of thermal energy. It represents the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit.

**Q2: Why is it important to calculate the correct AC capacity?**Calculating the correct AC capacity ensures that your air conditioner can effectively cool your space without overworking, which can save energy and reduce costs.

**Q3: Can I use the same Cooling Factor for all types of rooms?**The Cooling Factor can vary depending on factors such as climate and insulation quality. The standard value of 20 BTU per square foot is commonly used for residential spaces, but it may need adjustment for other conditions.
