A second size is more commonly the unit’s BTU rating which indicates how much cooling it can perform. A baseline would be 15 BTU/square foot – so a 500 sqft room would require around a 7500BTU/hour air conditioner. More complicated calculations consider aspects such as insulation, appliances, number of occupants, etc.
