Arctic Refrigeration - The air-conditioning and cooling experts!


BlogsWhat size air conditioner do I need for my room?

Factors that impact the size of air-conditioner that you will need:

  • Room size
  • Insulation
  • Size of windows
  • Ceiling height
  • Amount of sunlight
  • Flooring

These are all factors that are taken into consideration when selecting the size of air conditioner, you will need to effectively cool or heat a room.


Why is it important to get the correct size of air conditioner for your room?

Getting the right size of air conditioner for the space you have is very important because if you save a little money by buying a smaller air conditioner, it will work harder and use more energy. Before long, the money you saved will be eaten up by energy costs. We recommend that you speak to a professional on our team to ensure that you are choosing the most effective option for your space.
