You need to look at two things when determining the right size of air conditioner for your bedroom: the square footage of your room and the outside temperature.

The process for figuring out how large an air conditioner you need is as simple as multiplying the square footage of your bedroom by 55. If you have a 500 square foot room, you would multiply that number by 55 to get 27,500 Btu per hour.

What does this mean? It means that if it’s 120 degrees outside, and your bedroom has a 500 square foot surface area, you’ll need 27,500 BTUs per hour to cool down your bedroom so it’s comfortable for sleeping.

If you’re looking to cool down your bedroom, you might be wondering how many BTUs of air conditioning you need. The short answer is: it depends.

The number of BTUs an air conditioner uses is often referred to as the “tonnage.” This refers to the amount of heat it can remove from a room per hour (in British thermal units). But when it comes to choosing an air conditioner for your bedroom, a higher tonnage doesn’t necessarily mean better performance.

The best way to find out how many BTUs you need is by measuring the size of your bedroom. To do this, measure from one corner of the room to another corner; multiply that length by its width (not diagonal) and then divide by 144 (the number of square feet in an acre). This gives you the total square footage for your room—and will help determine how much cooling power (in BTUs) you’ll need for your space.

How Many Btu Air Conditioner For Bedroom

The number of Btu’s you need for your room depends on the size of your room, how many people are in it, and whether or not there is a lot of sunlight coming through the windows.

Here are some quick guidelines to help you find out how many Btu’s your room needs:

-If the room is less than 200 square feet, you will need less than 5,000 Btu’s.

-If the room is between 200-300 square feet and there are two people in it, you will need 6,000 Btu’s.

-If the room is between 300-400 square feet and there are two people in it, you will need 7,000 Btu’s.

-If the room is between 400-500 square feet and there are two people in it, you will need 8,000 Btu’s.

-If the room is more than 500 square feet with four people in it or if there is a lot of sun coming through windows during the day time hours when everyone is awake like from morning until evening when most people go home from work then use 10
