Long Island Air Conditioning: Choosing the Right Air Conditioning Unit Based on Building Size & Cooling Capacity

Are you tired of listening to the awful noise of your current air conditioning unit? Are you seeking to upgrade to a more innovative and affordable air conditioning unit? Or perhaps, you are looking for efficient estimates on the right air conditioning unit that is suitable for the size of your building.

Long island is notorious for its scorching summer heat and the awful perspiration, and the hot days and long nights of summer require an efficient, state-of-the-art air conditioning system. Both, houses and offices, alongside grocery stores, shopping malls and other outlets, require a strong air conditioning unit to cool us down and prevent us from being exhausted when the summer heat gets too intense and unexplainably hard to endure. No one wants to get stuck in a summer heat wave without AC!

Aside from ensuring that your air conditioning unit has been put together with modern appliances that have been purchased from a trust-worthy source that deals in premium quality units, it is also important to make sure that the air conditioning unit is well suited to the size of your building. In most cases, home owners and entrepreneurs, in their attempts to cut down costs and make the installation process more affordable, end up investing in air conditioning units that do not take into account the entire expanse of their premises, and hence, do not work effectively in cooling down the entire space of their house or office. Or, they are sold on an expensive unit that is way overpriced, and larger than they need for the building size.

The physical size or the dimensions of the air conditioning unit does not have much impact, but in fact, it is the cooling capacity of the unit that truly matters. If you are choosing a central air conditioning unit, keep in mind that you will only find the best, most efficient unit if you choose it on the basis of the size of the area where you want to install the unit. 

In order to calculate this size, you simply have to multiple the length times the width of the room or space area, and then, multiply the amount with 25 BTU, the measure of the cooling capacity of the AC. For instance, if the dimensions of the room are 15 feet long and 12 feet wide, you will have to multiple 180 square feet with 25 BTU, which will give you the minimum cooling capacity you need to seek. Ultimately, it is your choice whether you want to invest in a large unit or a smaller, more affordable one.
