Default how to cool 2 rooms with 1 aircon


Gud day po. ask ko lang po uli kung paano ang gagawin para magamit ang isang unit ng window type na aircon sa dalawang room na magkatabi lang at ang pagitan ay double wall na plywood at kisame, ang bawat room po ay may sukat na 9mtrs x 12 mtrs?
Ano po ang magandang aircon brand na may features na kyang i-cool ang 2 rooms?
at ano po ang posibleng paraan pra magawa ito?

Maraming salamat po.

Hi ^bro, that is a very big room. With that size I think it's energy efficient if you will just install one unit per room. Also a window type aircon can't really handle that size of a room. 2.5hp window type can cool a max of 30square meters only.
But if you really want to do it, then I would suggest installing 2 exhaust fans in reverse operation and in opposite place from one another to help in circulating the air inside both rooms.

I agree with Ricky on the room size vs Aircon power. Are you sure you didn't mean feet instead of meters?

Regardless, I think it would be more economical and convenient having two aircons. I'm assuming the rooms are bedrooms? If so, having exhaust fans to circulate the air may mean reduced privacy.

base sa room dimension, sa tingin ko nga tig dalawang aircon ang kailangan per room para maganda ang distribution ng lamig.

At current climate temperatures, we are now using 12-15 square meters per horsepower cooling capacity. If you are really working with 9sqm x 12sqm then this is about 108 sqm = 7.2HP This means even 2 units of the biggest window type won't cut it per room. We don't even know the ceiling height. Kung 9ft x 12ft lang sya per room then that is only 108 square feet or about 10.04 square meters so a 2.5HP window type is more than enough but w/ the help of a circulating fan or in this case the exhaust fans as suggested by Ricky and balarila.

I'm so sorry sa mga nag reply, I mistakenly put meters, instead of square feet, but I already get your point..

Thanks guys and God bless!

If you can use split type aircon you can install it. Bet. Wall partition. I just did it on One of my office project.

But is window type two exhaus should be use for better circulation.
