A 3kw cooktop unit puts out 10,000 BTU/hr.
I need help choosing the correct AC size for my room
the room is about 320 squared feet "32 meter squared"....It is connected directly to my kitchen "small one...about 190squared feet"...the kitchen has no cooling unit, ventilation fan is on when cooking only and air flow is at minimum so pretty much the hot air sometimes is trapped inside..
The room I want to cool is also connected to a hallway "very small" that leads to the bathroom and the other room"bathroom no ventillation fan due to insects attacks!...just using the windows as a ventilator...so it is very humid around there.
I have bought 2 windowed ACs for the 320 feet squared room in less than 6 years.
at first the AC works great...after sometime freon runs out....refill....then after sometime just a sudden compressor failure....the ACs I used where 2.5tons "we use metric systems here"and they all failed to cool the room perfectly....just at night when everyone is asleep I get up and increase the temperature.
so what kind of AC and what power is porper for this room??....the room is not insulated "I mean heat insulation"...and I don't plan to change the status of the other rooms connected to it cause no space for cooling utilities.
One extra thing....the climate where I live is very humid usually....temp at these days goes up to 122F-130F
Sorry for the lengthy question....had to make every thing clear.

I used to believe that is true but as it seems it is not true at all....2½ tons seems way overkill
here is a small graph that might help:: X represents the AC
BC = Book Cabinet "about 2 meters high....doesn't touch the ceiling
Hw = Hall way
had to add zzzz to represent vacant...the forum doesn't like using space to seperate those
==X=============== Hw= ==||
So this is how the room looks like
The AC's back is in a wet semi closed area which explains fast radiator corrosion
now the questions are.....If I bought another 2½ tons....
1)would the room be too much for it?
2)would the compressor just stops working like the ones before it?
3)I would like an explanation why my AC died so soon? (Can it kill the AC if the room is too big for it?)
4)Should I consider other types of ACs?
Can you change that into tons please? we don't use BTU's hereA 3kw cooktop unit puts out 10,000 BTU/hr.
It is hot as hell here and very very humid...the mankind killing combinationHoly Chihuahua....130º...you need one of these.....to get the hell out of Dodge!!!

I went and bought another 2 tons AC
It is one of those with giant compressors-thats what is written in the manual and on the AC unit-.
I found in the manual that max BTU is about 24,000 would that be good?
Or shall I return it?
Here is the axact info written on the unit:
Cooling Capacity (SASO)
220 V / 1ph / 60 HZ
2880 W - 13.5A
Note: the AC has no heat generating features.
Note: SASO -I think- is the Saudi Standards,Metrology and Quality Orginization (yes,the unit was made in Saudi Arabia except for the compressor which was imported.
This is no less than the one before it which lasted only 5 or 6 years....the compressor is dead.
The old one was 2.5 tons this one is 2 tons only
Any explenation? and is this unit good?
