The cooling capacity of room air conditioners is measured in BTUs, or British Thermal Units, per hour.
To figure the size unit you need, measure the space you're trying to cool and find it on this chart. To estimate square footage, multiply the length of the room by the width. (A room that's 10 feet by 20 feet, for example, has 200 square feet in it. The chart shows the recommended air conditioner for that sized space is rated at 6,000 BTUs.)
