Sizing up and advice on selecting a conservatory air conditioning unit
much cooling power is required?
A conservatory has the obvious effect of heating up in the warm weather and being cold when the season is cold, heating up especially when the sun is on it a conservatory, a greenhouse effect. It is advised when calculating the heat load for air conditioning your conservatory, it advised to add 40% to your initial floor calculation of 100 watts / M sq.
If your conservatory is 6 metres by 5 metre (30 square meter floor area) then your basic heat load is (30m x 100 Watts) 3000 watts. Adding 40% solar effect and you get a basic heat load for your conservatory air conditioning of 3000 Watts + 40% = 4200Watts. Therefor you require a 4.2Kw / 14000Btu air conditioning unit.
your conservatory is 5 metres by 5 metre (25 square meter floor area)
then your basic heat load is (25m x 100 Watts) 2500 watts. Adding 40%
solar effect and you get a basic heat load for your conservatory air
conditioning of 2500 + 40% = 3000Watts. Therefor you require a 3Kw
/ 12000Btu air conditioning unit.
to place your internal conservatory air conditioning unit:
a low wall mounted system is not a option or preferred the a high wall
mounted system is ideal. These are always split style (indoor and
outdoor format) and the hot air is dealt with directly by the internal
unit and rejected through the outdoor unit. (see
