We’ve written before about how much an air conditioner can lower the temperature in a house. This is known as an AC’s temperature differential: the maximum amount it can lower the temperature inside compared to the temperature outside.
Today we’re going to look at the cooling capacity of your air conditioner. This may sound like it’s the same as the temperature differential, but it isn’t. Where temperature differential is the same for all ACs, cooling capacity has a large range. Ensuring the AC for your home has the correct cooling capacity is vital for having an effective and energy-efficient cooling system.
