What Air Conditioning Do I Need for a Small Home?
Air conditioning options for smaller homes are different than those for a more traditional structure, as space is often limited both indoor and out. The team at Earl’s Air Conditioning can help you choose the best air conditioning system for you, from single room units to mini-split units to wall air conditioners. If your home is a tiny house, a studio apartment, or a small house, we can help you be comfortable and cool all year long.
There are a handful of options for small homes or single room dwellings. Let our experts at Earl’s Air Conditioning make sure that your Coachella Valley home has the perfect air conditioning system for your needs.

Air Conditioning Options for Small Homes
Your home is the place you return to when you want to escape the outside world. No matter how big or small, the temperature inside your home is an important part of comfort. Whether you want to cool a single room or your whole home, there are options for you to choose from.
Types of air conditioning for small structures include:
- Portable Air Conditioning: This type of air conditioning includes floor units or tabletop units. These usually include an exhaust tube that fits into an open window, a remote, and programmable timer. They can be set to keep a room at a specific temperature or to turn on when the timer is set. Portable air conditioning units can cool spaces from 200-400 square feet. Depending on the size of your space and configuration, these may cool one room or the entire home.
- Window Air Conditioning: Window units vary in size and depending on their output, can cool a room from 150-400 square feet. These types of air conditioning systems often have removable air filters and adjustable cooling speeds and direction. Installation of window units is slightly more limited than a portable unit, as the size and shape of your windows must be considered as well as regulations from your HOA or landlord.
- Mini-Split Air Conditioners: Mini-splits are a ductless option of air conditioner that still has a condenser and evaporator. The condenser for your mini-split is outdoors and a small tube extends into the home to the evaporator, typically positioning on a wall near the ceiling. Mini-split units are quiet, energy-efficient, and can be installed in several rooms or just one. Evaporators can be installed in several zones of your home and connected to the original condenser outside so that you can control your comfort level no matter the room in your home.
