Depending on the floor size and type of room, you need to decide on the capacity of your AC machine. It is generally estimated that an area in the range of 120 ~140 Sq. ft. will need 1 ton AC machine. In case your room size is between 150 to 180 Sq. ft. areas you would need a 1.5 ton. On the other hand 180 ~ 240 Sq. ft. areas will need a 2-ton cooling capacity air conditioner. So decide on the capacity of your AC machine before you buy one.
