Available at AJ Madison. How to Choose a Room Air Conditioner Compared to large capacity central units, room air conditioners have several advantages. The initial cost of a room air conditioning unit is significantly lower than the cost of central air. Because room air conditioners are designed for cooling small spaces, operating costs are reduced. And, room air conditioners can provide personalized temperature and humidity controls that central systems cannot. Calculating Cooling Capacity Cooling capacity is the critical factor in properly selecting a room air conditioner. Cooling capacity is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs) and typical models will range in capacity from 5,000 BTUs to 28,500 BTUs. Choosing an undersized unit will overwork the unit and it will not cool properly. Choosing an oversized unit will cost more to buy and operate and it will not dehumidify properly. We can help you to calculate capacity. Be prepared to provide specific information on: Room Dimensions A simple floor plan to show the location of doors and north-facing windows The number of people it will serve Sources of heat such as lamps, TV and appliances An explanation of what's above the intended room Your insulation provisions Cooling Capacity by Room Size Measure the length and width of the area to be cooled. Multiply the length by the width to determine square footage or square meters. When cooling rooms with uninsulated ceilings, great rooms, or southern or western sun exposures - step up to the next BTU size. Room SizeBTUSq.

Great purchase!
Posted:8/17/12
Pros: cools quickly and covers a large area.
Cons: overall no cons.
"The A/C is great and covers a large living room area with a very high cathedral ceiling. It is a little noisy, but when it is 102 degress outside, who cares? Overall, we are very satisfied with our purchase."

Excellent wall/window large air conditioner
Posted:7/23/12
"Cools three rooms very nicely. Very easy to use. Came with its own bracket. You can adjust the two sides to blow in two different directions. Only potential drawback: does not have setting to make the air-directing slats rotate back and forth. Great price for a unit this size."

Pros: 28500 btus in a wall unit is technology's finest
Cons: none
"28500 BTUs was the cure for our summer; with its temps in the high 90s, nothing else could compare to this AC. The comfort of a cool house within minutes, a noise level of extreme quiet, even on the 'High' fan speed topped off with an energy efficient model, it does not get any better than that. We can set 60 degrees at a 'Low' fan speed for nights and during the day relax under a temperature setting of 70 degrees. The digital read-out is great and the remote control buttons are user friendly with room temperature tracking. We are thrilled to have found this during the hottest season at such a reasonable price. A J Madison delivered swiftly and without incident. We are 100% happy with A J Madison and Frigidaire."
