The capacity of an air conditioner is determined according to the room where it will be installed. A bigger room will require a higher capacity air conditioner. Along with that, the atmosphere is also very important to determine how much capacity your air conditioner should have. Since a low capacity air conditioner can work well in a big room if the outside atmosphere is not very hot, whereas in extremely hot temperatures a higher capacity air conditioner will be required for a bigger room. Hence, for hot temperature areas, a 2-ton air conditioner will be suitable for a big room and a 1-ton air conditioner will work in a smaller room.

Energy Efficiency

If something is energy efficient it means that it uses less energy to reach a specified temperature. As a matter of fact, an energy-efficient air conditioner will consume less electricity and consequently, your electricity bill will be lower. On the other hand, if your air conditioner consumes more energy to reach a specific temperature then you will see an increase in your electricity bill.

Type Of Air Conditioner

Understanding different types of air conditioners is very important before purchasing one. Typically, there are two types of air conditioners one is a window air conditioner which is fixed in a window from where it takes the outside air directly and cools the room very quickly. This type of air conditioner contains a single rectangular unit with no extra outer. However, window AC units are better suited for smaller spaces than a big space.

Whereas a split AC is installed on the wall, and its outer is kept in the open air. Furthermore, these air conditioners are available in different sizes for small and large rooms.

Hence you should select the right type of air conditioner according to your requirements or ask an air conditioner installation service provider to give you some advice according to your location.


Your surrounding conditions also have a huge impact on the performance of your HVAC system. Therefore, the performance of an air conditioner is directly linked to the atmosphere, temperature and air quality. An AC can work efficiently if your atmosphere is cool and unpolluted. Bad air quality can affect the performance of your air conditioner. Consequently, you will have to clean its filters more frequently by yourself or with the help of a technician.

A delay in the cleaning of its filters can affect the performance of the air conditioner. Also, it will increase the energy consumption due to high exertion to reach a specified temperature.
