Estimated Cooling Capacity Required = (Area of Room) × 65 [BTU/Hr] = (Length (ft) × Width (ft)) × 65 [BTU/Hr] E.g: Estimated Cooling Capacity Required = (Area of Room) × 65
= (10ft × 10ft) × 65
= 6500 BTU/Hr
*Note: 1m = 3.281ft
• Reduce cooling capacity by 10% if your room is heavily shaded
• Increase cooling capacity by 10% if your room is extremely sunny
• Add 600 BTU for each additional person, if more the two people regularly occupy the space
• Increase cooling capacity by 4,000 BTU if the room is a kitchen
• Reduce cooling capacity by 30% if the air-conditioner only runs at night
2. Check the batteries for the remote control regularly to prevent corrosion.
3. Depending on usage, arrange monthly or quarterly general servicing of your air-conditioning system. Regular maintenance will prolong the lifespan of the air-conditioning system and most important of all is to ensure the air that your family breathes is 100% healthy.
4. Upon engaging an air-conditioning contractor, do look through their company profile, experience and after sales / service warranty.
5. Check the setting of the remote control just to avoid unnecessary expenditure in engaging an air-conditioning specialist. This is to confirm that the air-conditioner has malfunctioned and not just a wrong setting of the remote control.
6. Avoid dismantling the air-conditioning unit yourself to service, rectify or remedy any faults as you may worsen the problem. Just call us and leave it to the Aircon Professionals.
