that is a 10000 btu unit and a good rule of thumb to go by when 'sizing' a unit is 12000 btu for every 600 sq ft of cooling space (if the place is well insulated) or 400 sq ft (if not well insulated).

So, you have a 10000 btu unit which is 5/6th of 12000 btu - so - can reasonably expect that unit to cool approximately 500 sq feet.

In other words the room it's in now could be only - say - 300 sq feet (and well insulated) - in which case the AC unit is cooling it - well.

However, if you try to cool a 800 sq ft room - it will not work as well.

Hope this has helped.

Do you know the BTU of the unit . approxmently 12000 BTU = 1 ton of cooling

Jul 18, 2011 | Goodman Heating & Cooling

divide your btu rating by 12000. (1 ton = 12000 btu)

For example - a 24,000 BTU Air Conditioner is a 2 ton unit. 24000 divided by 12000 = 2

A 18000 btu air condtioner is a 1 1/2 ton unit 18000 divided by 12000 = 1 1/2

you can find out your btu rating by looking on the tag on your unit.

The AC your landlord installed is rated at 8000 btu which is way too small for 900 sq ft. You need at least a 15000 Btu Air conditioner and a 'well insulated' house to be cool.

A good rule of thumb in the AC business says you need 1 ton (12000 btu) of Air conditioning for every 600 sq feet (if the house is well insulated) - if not - then you will need 1 ton (12000 btu) for every 400 sq feet.

So, if you have 900 sq feet and the house is well insulated you should have at least a 15000 btu unit.

If it's not well insulated you will need 24,000 btu.

you need to find out the size of the unit.

Rule of thumb - for every 600 sq ft of cooling area (in a well insulated house) you will need 1 ton of air conditioning. 1 ton = 12000 btu.

So, if your cooling area is 600 sq ft you would need an AC which was rated at 12000 btu, assuming your house is well insulated.

If it is not insulated well - you might need a bigger unit, i.e. 15000 btu.

the 'rule of thumb' is 1 ton of AC for every 600 sq feet of a well insulated space (400 sq ft if not well insulated)- for example if the space to be cooled is 1200 sq ft - and is well insulated - you would require a 2 HP unit. 1200 divided by 600 = 2

if the space was not well insulated - you would require a 3 HP unit. 1200 divided by 400 = 3

note; 1 ton of air conditioning - is sometimes referred to as 1 HP or 12000 Btu. Whether you call it 1 HP or 1 Ton or 12000 Btu - they all three mean exactly the same thing.

take this example - 2 tons of air conditioning can also be referred to as 2 HP or 24000 Btu.

fyi - it doesn't matter what 'brand' - they all work off the same principle.

hope this helps

I bought the same unit yesterday and took it back today. Not sure what's wrong, I guess they are junky a/c's.

Jun 10, 2008 | Danby Portable Air Conditioner

Nope its a big room for 24000btu. the computation is 18sqm./ 1 ton. or 1.5 hp.
