Determining Cooling Capacity

To determine the cooling capacity you need for a particular application, use the following information as a rough guide:

Insulated areas: Provide 1 ton (12,000 BTU) of cooling capacity per 400 sq. ft. of surface area.

Uninsulated areas: Provide 1 ton (12,000 BTU) of cooling capacity per 200 sq. ft. of surface area.

Additional Considerations:

1. For every 24 people present, provide one additional ton of cooling capacity.

2. For equipment generating excessive heat within the cooling area, provide ad­di­tion­al cooling capacity in ac­cordance with the amount of heat generated by the equipment.

Note: The above calculations are for estimating purposes only. Actual measurements for specific applications may vary.
