Tower air conditioners are a type of cooling system designed for compact spaces.

Key Features

  • Tall and slim, free-standing tower design
  • Mobile on wheels for portability
  • Contains all AC components in a single casing
  • Air intake at the back or bottom
  • Front vents for air circulation
  • Control panel on top for temperature settings
  • Windowless cooling solution

How Does it Work?

Tower ACs function like a window AC but without needing a window. Key components include:

  • Air filter to remove dust
  • Evaporator and condenser coils
  • Compressor for refrigerant circulation
  • Fan to blow out cold air

Hot air enters the back, gets cooled, dehumidified and released through the front.

Capacity and Coverage

Tower ACs range from 10,000 to 28,000 BTU. Capacity indicates the room size it can effectively cool:

  • 10,000 BTU: 300-450 sq ft
  • 14,000 BTU: 500-700 sq ft
  • 18,000 BTU: 700-1,000 sq ft

Higher BTU is better for larger spaces.

Advantages of Tower ACs

  • Compact, free-standing design
  • Easy mobility from room to room
  • No permanent installation needed
  • Suitable for spaces without windows

Tower ACs offer flexible, windowless cooling for small to mid-size areas. Evaluate your room and usage to determine if a tower AC meets your needs.
