Cool air on hot days – quick guide to air conditioners

Spring is coming to an end, summer is just around the corner and we’re asking ourselves: How hot will this summer be? No matter if you’re a summer or a winter person, air conditioners make sure your home doesn’t turn into a sauna and you can relax and enjoy a cool breeze whenever you want.

As the days are getting warmer and warmer, so are the nights. Many of us have trouble sleeping if the temperatures don’t drop at night and even opening the window doesn’t help. What to do if you’re in need of a cool breeze? Get an air conditioner.

What does BTU mean?

The cooling capacity of an air conditioning application is usually measured in BTU/h. Strictly speaking, this doesn’t refer to the cooling capacity but to how much heat can be removed from the air. Specifically, it is the amount of energy needed to raise 1 pound of water by 1° F. 1000 BTU/h corresponds to about 293 watts. The larger the room to be cooled, the more powerful your air conditioning system should be.

What do you need to look out for when buying an air conditioning system?

Enough theoretical background, let’s get down to the nitty gritty. To find the right system for your needs, use the following rule of thumb: For a room with good insulation and little direct sunlight, multiply the room area in square metres by 60 watts. For a room with poor insulation and a lot of direct sunlight, multiply the area by 100 watts. For a room with an area of 20 square metres, the calculation is 20 m2 × 100 W = 2,000 W. Expressed in kilowatts (kW), this corresponds to 2 kW. As a result, you’ll need a system with a capacity of approx. 7,000 BTU/h for your 20 room.

Mobile air conditioners

Mobile devices can be used wherever you need them – as long as a connection to the outside is given, as the hot air needs to be vented outside. For this purpose, most systems come with a hose about one to two metres long and between 10 and 20 centimetres in diameter, which fits through a half-open window. A more elegant solution, of course, is having a hole in the wall, as this allows you to open and close the windows regardless of the air conditioning system. If you don't have or aren't allowed to drill a hole into the wall, window seals for air conditioners are available under the accessories listed below.

Split systems

This type of air conditioning system is permanent and requires construction work to connect and allow airflow between the indoor and outdoor component. Therefore, split systems are usually very expensive. An external component is installed on the outside, transporting the warm air outside, while the indoor unit supplies the room with cool air. Split systems are most common in hotels and office buildings. They double as heaters and dehumidifiers.

"... Noch besser ist natürlich, wenn du dafür ein Loch in der Wand hast oder machen darfst ..."
Bei wem könnte man sowas zur Abklärung und allenfalls ausführung geben?

26.05.2018
User Raphael Knecht

Du musst bei deinem Vermieter abklären, ob und falls ja, wo du ein Loch in die Wand machen darfst. Zur Ausführung gibst du (bzw. dein Vermieter – je nach dem, was im Mietvertrag steht) es dann einem Maurer oder Schreiner (je nach dem, woraus die Wand besteht). In der Regel werden aber mobile Klimageräte schon mit dem Schlauch im Fenster benutzt.

User silverskunkk

Frage. Wie siehts mit den Fensterabdichtungen aus wen mal sehr grosse Fenster hat? Ca 2m hoch 1.25m Breit?

04.06.2018
User Raphael Knecht

Da müsstest du wohl nach einer Spezialanfertigung Ausschau halten. Oder versuchen, zwei kleinere Abdichtungen zu verbinden – ob das funktioniert, kann ich aber nicht sagen beziehungsweise bestätigen.

05.06.2018
Answer
User reze_dig

geht doch bitte genauer auf die Luftabführung ein!
Ein Loch kommt nicht in Frage. Die F-Kits sind z.T. echt mies Bewertet und wie löst man das Problem wenn diese Kit's nichts taugen? Wie kommt man mit 1.5m Schlauch beim F-Kit auf diese Höhe, vor allem wenn die Abfuhr noch oben ist beim Fenster.

05.06.2018
User Raphael Knecht

Werde dem gerne nachgehen und habe die Frage an unsere Produkt-Experten weitergeleitet. Ich melde mich, sobald ich eine Antwort kriege!

05.06.2018
User Raphael Knecht

Leider gibt es hier keine "offizielle" Lösung via Zubehörteile von Herstellern – sprich, du müsstest dir selbst eine Alternative basteln (bspw. zwei Schläuche miteinander verbinden). Ich werde der Thematik im Allgemeinen aber nachgehen und allenfalls einen Beitrag mit Expertentipps veröffentlichen.

06.06.2018
User reze_dig

Danke schon einmal für diese Antwort, wobei dies von der Seite des Herstellers echt traurig ist .... Mobile Klimageräte aber ohne wirkliche Konzepte & Lösungsprodukte für die mühsame Warmluftabführung.

06.06.2018
User reze_dig

Äugle mit diesem Produkt: Kibernetik Nanyo KMO2501 ...
Auch nur schon Schläuche zu verlängern sind mir nicht gross aufgefallen, da diese je nach Produkt auch noch mit unterschiedlichen Durchmessern aufgefallen sind ... und ein Verbindungsstück würde dann ja auch noch benötigt ...

06.06.2018
User Raphael Knecht

Es kommt immer etwas darauf an, wie professionell die Lösung sein soll. Einen zweiten, gleich grossen Schlauch aufzutreiben, dürfte wohl nicht allzu schwierig sein. Die beiden Schläuche dann mit Klebeband o.ä. zu verbinden, sollte ebenfalls keine Hexerei sein... aber ja, es wird in diesem Bereich tatsächlich nicht wirklich viel Zubehör geboten.

Könntest du mir sagen welche dieser Klimaanlage leise sind. Also so das man sie nacht durch laufen lassen kan?

30.07.2018
User Raphael Knecht

Hallo Mili7. Die Rotel (galaxus.ch/de/s2/product/ro...) und die De'Longhi (galaxus.ch/de/s2/product/de...) sind auf der niedrigsten Stufe bzw. im Silent-Modus am leisesten und können somit die Nacht hindurch durchaus laufen gelassen werden.

Ob du damit allerdings in der Nacht schlafen kannst, kann ich nicht objektiv beurteilen, da jeder Mensch unterschiedliche Schlafgewohnheiten und Anforderungen an die Stille im Raum hat.

Answer
User kevinschmidiger

Also dieser Guide ist ka schön und recht. Aber bei der Beispielrechnung wie kommt man da auf die 7kBTU/h, wenn ja 293 Watt 1kBTU/h sein soll? Und was genau nützt der Guide mir, wenn bei der Klimaanlage dann doch m3 angegeben sind? Bitte Anpassen und matched die Angaben auf Angaben der Produkte.

02.08.2018
User Raphael Knecht

Bei den Geräten findest du die Angaben sowohl in m3 wie auch in BTU/h. Ausserdem kommst du wie folgt auf die 7'000 BTU/h: 293 Watt sind 1'000 BTU/h, also sind 2'000 Watt ungefähr 7'000 BTU/h (exakt wären es 6'826 BTU/h – ich habe hier aber aufgerundet, da es von Vorteil ist, etwas mehr Leistung als nötig zu haben, um den Raum garantiert auf die gewünschte Temperatur herunterkühlen zu können).
