How to determine the cooling capacity based on room size?
Based on Singapore weather, you can compute the cooling capacity of your aircon based on the following formula：
Estimated Cooling Capacity required (BTU/HR) = Area of Room in Square feet x 65
Estimated Cooling Capacity required (BTU/HR) = Area of Room in Square meter x 699
Note that fancoil cooling capacity comes in standard sizes of 9,000 BTU, 12,000 BTU, 18,000 BTU and 24,000 BTU etc. Therefore, you will have to do some rounding up.
Note that the 9,000 BTU cooling capacity is generally more than sufficient for HDB bedroom units which has a square area of approximately 8 to 15 square meters unless there are other factors to take into consideration。
Additional Factors for consideration:
Based on Energy Star [a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)] recommendation, you may like to adjust the cooling capacity by plus or minus 10% if the room is facing direct sunshine (eg high floor, east/west facing) or highly shaded. For kitchen unit, you will require an additional cooling capacity of 4,000 BTU. If you have more than 2 occupants in a room, you may need to increase the capacity by 600 BTU per person.
New air conditioners installation
New air conditioners are sold with aircon installation. Aircon installation prices are quite standard for HDB housing because the room area and the places for housing the condensers for most HDB flat are quite standard. However, for private appartments and premises, floor area and architecture of the housing varies for different types of properties. Therefore, aircon servicing vendor would need an to pay an onsite visit before they can determine the level of difficulties involved in the installation before they can compute the manhour and amount of materials required for the installation of the new air conditioners. Therefore, it is impossible to provide a standard pricing for installing new air conditioners for such premises unless we have the required information.

Understanding the Energy Saving Label
When buying new air conditioners, you should look at the energy label attached to the aircon to check its ability to save energy consumption.
National Environment Agency has re-design the energy label for air-conditioners and various electrical appliances on 1 September 2014 to improve its readability and add new information such as the estimated annual energy cost of using the product. The new label is shown below.
(1) Energy Efficiency Rating
(3) Annual Energy Cost
(4) Annual Energy Consumption
(5) Brand name
(9) Test Standards
(11) Registration Number
