In this article, we’ll discuss what an air conditioner is and how it works, the different types of units available, how to estimate the size of your unit correctly and the steps required for professional installation.

What is an Air Conditioner?

An air conditioner is an electrical appliance used to maintain a comfortable internal temperature in a home or building. It works by cooling and dehumidifying indoor air as well as circulating it throughout the structure. Most residential air conditioning systems use a forced-air system, which works by circulating cooled air through a series of ducts in order to evenly distribute it throughout the home or building.

Types of Air Conditioners

The two main types of air conditioners are window units and central systems. Window units are designed to fit in one standard window opening, while central systems are typically connected to an existing HVAC system or require separate ductwork installation. Window units are usually less expensive than central systems but may not be as efficient. If you have older windows or don’t have enough space for a large unit, a window unit may be a better choice for you. Central systems are more expensive but provide better efficiency and coverage over larger areas such as multiple rooms or floors within one residence or building complex.

Estimating Size & Capacity

When selecting an air conditioner for your home or business, it’s important to choose one with the right size and capacity for your space’s needs. This can be determined by calculating the area of your space that needs cooling (in square feet) and then multiplying that number by 25 BTUs per square foot (BTU/hr). For example, if you have 1,000 sq ft that needs cooling, then you would need an air conditioner with 25,000 BTU/hr capacity (1 x 25 = 25). Additionally, when estimating capacity you should also consider other factors such as climate type (hot/dry vs humid), sun exposure and insulation quality in order to ensure that your AC will work optimally for years to come.

Your Ottawa AC Installation Process
