    Before you buy it you may want to calculate how much it will cost you to run it. That is why you will not find many for sale.

    I thought that in this country the units were at 12.000 . 18,000 and then 24,000 ..you need a good 18,000 for a large bedroom and depending where you are you can do little better than Plaza Lama

    BTU Calculations......Room Area BTU = Length (m) x Width (m) x 337

    Where abouts are you? I you are on the north coast I may be able to help you.
    What is the size of room you want to be cooled and type of construction.
    I have been ibstalling air conditioning in the Caribbean for 17 years and you definitely need to size the unit right or the running costs will be very high.

    I must be doing something wrong.

    A 10 x 10 room with that calculation comes to 33,700

    Yep, i was using feet and not meters...... lol

    A 12,000 btu would be fine if it is 10ft by 10ft. i have a Carrier 12k high efficiency inverter splt unit in Sosua, it is brand new in box if you want one.

    Does the room height get factored into this? I have a room that is 4.5m x 5.9m but its got a big cathedral ceiling about 3m-4m in height. I went to Plaza Lama and Sirena and they say a minimum of 18Kbtu.

    Not to my knowledge. Spoke to a A/C installer and he said only if the ceilings are more than 14 feet
