## How many square feet does a 12000 BTU air conditioner cool?

The most common window air conditioning units come in cooling capacities ranging from 5,000 to 12,000 Btu. A 12,000 Btu air conditioner can cool between

**450**and**550 square feet**of floor space. A 12,000 Btu unit could cool a room 25 feet long by 20 feet wide that has 500 square feet of floor area.2

## How many rooms does a 15000 BTU air conditioner cool?

Those in the 12,000- to 15,000-Btu range cost from

**$450 to $600**, while large units go up to**$1,200**. Air conditioners rated at 15,000 Btu should be enough to cool most rooms up to about 875 sq. ft.3

## How many tons of AC do I need per square foot?

Understand here that the standard practice among

## How many square feet does a 2 ton air conditioner cool?

A well-insulated room with 100 square feet will require a 4,000 to 6,000 (a half ton) BTU air conditioner while a 12,000 BTU (one ton) unit can cool up to 500 square feet. A 2-ton (24,000 BTU) central air conditioning unit can effectively cool a

**1500 square**-foot residence.9

## What does 15 SEER mean?

The efficiency at which air conditioners produce cooling is refered to as its

**SEER**rating.**SEER**stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio,and is a ratio of the amount of cooling produced (BTU) divided by the amount of electricity (watts) used. The higher the**SEER**, the greater the air conditioner's efficiency.12

2. Find the correct cooling capacity for your room size

Area To Be Cooled (square feet) | Capacity Needed (BTUs per hour) |
---|---|

400 up to 450 | 10,000 |

450 up to 550 | 12,000 |

550 up to 700 | 14,000 |

700 up to 1,000 | 18,000 |

## What is a SEER rating for air conditioners?

**SEER**stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The

**SEER**measures

**air conditioning**and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. A higher

**SEER**rating means greater energy efficiency.

## How many BTU do I need per square foot?

Multiply the total square footage to be heated by the heating factor. If you live in a 2,500 square foot home and a climate zone with a heating factor of

**40 BTUs**per square foot, you need a furnace with an output of**100,000 BTUs**per hour.15

## How do you measure a room?

To do so, use a tape

**measure**to determine the**room's**length and width. Then multiply the length by the width to get your square footage. For instance, if the**room**is 12 feet wide and 12 feet long, you will need enough flooring for 144 square feet (12×12=144).18

## How much area does 1 ton AC cover?

1 Ton AC covers 80 to

**120 sq.ft**area. The**144 sq ft**is on border range. If you have many windows or if your room sun facing then buying 1.5 Ton AC is good choice. Below table has summarized capacity chart.19

## What is the meaning of ton in air conditioner?

A

**ton**, as used in the HVAC field, is a term that describes how much heat the**AC**unit can remove from a home in one hour. The measurement for heat is the British thermal unit (BTU). One**ton**of**air conditioning**can remove 12,000 BTUs of air per hour. They are the most efficient units available.
