How big is the area you need to cool?

The most vital piece of information you need to have ready is the size of the space that you wish to cool.

You don’t have to be a mathematician to figure it out– simply multiply the length of the room by the width. Ceiling height may be considered a factor if you have particularly high ceilings, but to keep things simple, just calculate the floor space.

Air conditioners are grouped according to their BTU, and Kencar stocks units ranging from 9 000 BTU  to 24 000 BTU split systems Air Conditioners.

As a general rule, we advise you to buy an Air Conditioner with a minimum of 9 000BTUs as this is the minimum required to cool a small room (15sq/m) on a hot day.
