If your engineering skills aren’t perfect, you can download apps that scan your room from your mobile device and automatically capture all measurements of the room to know the size. The size of your own room/office allows you to calculate the area that qualifies what type of Air Conditioner you need.
As a standard or thumb rule in india, you can consider 1TR of load against every 100Sqft of area which needs to be cooled Lets say, your AC is bigger, know that it will not be able to provide proper dehumidification, understand that a unit with too high of a cooling capacity for space can turn off and on too often.
On the other hand, a smaller one will cost you more in terms of energy consumption. An underpowered air conditioner won’t cool a large room properly. The level of cooling an air conditioner is capable of, is measured in British Thermal Units (BTU).
Bigger isn’t always better, which definitely means that the higher the number the greater the cooling capacity. It is always advisable to match the BTU capacity of the air conditioner to the dimensions of the room, this will provide proper room cooling. Any Air conditioner that comes with high BTU rating, usually cools the area so quickly that it doesn’t have time to dehumidify the air, which can leave the space feeling cold and clammy.
In order to understand the BTU calculation: 1 TR = 12,000 BTU’s per hour.
