By on June 7, 2018

With summers in its full swing, many of you would want to purchase a new AC. Amidst the crowd of 20+ brands in the AC segment, Godrej is one of known Indian brand. Godrej offers only split ACs. Energy efficiency is one of the key themes of Godrej air conditioners. In fact, the first inverter AC was launched in India by Godrej way back in 2005. Godrej has recently launch NXW series catering premium customers and with 6.15 ISEER, NXW ACs not only meets the 5-star requirements of the current BEE energy rating norms but even complies with the 5-star requirement of the proposed BEE rating for 2019. In this article, we will cover the latest technologies that Godrej ACs comes with including the ones offered in the trending NXW series

Key Godrej AC Technologies

Artic Cool Technology and Hurricane Mode for Faster Cooling

There are times when you spend an arduous day out in the parching sun and back home tired and sweaty. When back home, you yearn for an instant cool ambience. But then the old AC takes up a while to deliver comfort cooling, leaving you enervated. Thankfully modern inverter ACs from Godrej comes with Artic Cool technology which quickly cools the room. These ACs provide cooling up to 16°C in a span of few minutes.

Fixed speed non-inverter Godrej ACs come with what is known as hurricane mode. Due to the large indoor unit, there is a wider air throw which in turn results in better cooling. These ACs come with pulse generator fan motor for fan speed stability and 4 fan speed levels: low, medium, high and hurricane. Hurricane mode which provides up to 38% better air throw compared to ordinary ACs.

4-Way Air Technology with IAT and UDAT modes

Usually, ACs come with 2-way (up and down) swing blade to disseminate cool air inside the room. But modern premium Godrej ACs comes with the 4-way air technology (up-down + right-left) which blows the cool air in multiple directions to ensure thorough cooling inside the room. This ensures that the air flow is uniformly distributed, in both vertical and horizontal direction, resulting in uniform cooling. So, no matter which part of the room user is in, he will experience even cooling with the new Godrej air conditioners.

To compliment 4-way air technology there additionally two modes: IAT and UDAT. Intelligent Air Throw (IAT) mode enables the AC to automatically sense the room temperature and then accordingly adjust the air flow. This prevents continuous high air throw on user’s head, which often leads to concerns like dryness of skin and fatigue. User Defined Air Throw (UDAT) mode allows the user to select the air flow from minimum to maximum as per his preference, leading to maximum comfort.

iSense Technology for Smart Cooling

Premium Godrej ACs comes with smart iSense technology which gives smart localized cooling in the large room based on the user’s precise location inside the room. Two sensors, one in the unit and other in the remote are used for this purpose. Depending on the information received from the sensor inside the remote, the AC adjust the ambient temperature. This sensor is capable of gathering temperature information even about the farthest parts of the room, and then passing the same to the main unit, thereby ensuring the customized cooling.

Dry mode to Extract Humidity from the Room

Summer season makes the AC overwork and with the monsoon to follow, ordinary ACs could fail to control the humidity or even result in water leakage. During the rainy season, conventional air conditioners not only consume more energy but also make the room uncomfortably cold which may lead to health ailment like sneezing, common cold or even headache. Godrej being an experienced brand have noted this problem specific to our country’s climate. So, the new models from Godrej come with a Dry mode which removes the humidity from the room by lowering the fan speed. When enabled, the dehumidifier in the AC soaks up extra moisture from the air and make people feel comfortable in the room.

Catechin Filter and Silver Ion Filter with Auto Clean Technology

High end split ACs from Godrej are fortified with various protection filters and technologies. They ensure protection from various unwanted/harmful elements like hair, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, fumes etc. Catechin and silver ion filter are used for this purpose.

Catechin filters are remarkably effective at freeing the indoor air of ugly odors. Catechin filters get their name from a naturally occurring antioxidant found in a green tea. They strip the passage of odor-causing pollutants such as tobacco smoke and pet smells owing to their anti-dust and anti-bacterial properties. An equally important utility is that they trap and exterminate microscopic bacteria and viruses which could otherwise lead to cold, cough and other respiratory disorders.

Additionally, silver ion filter is also present which releases the silver ions to sterilize bacteria effectively. The silver ion filter not only kills bacteria in the air but also inhibits the growth of microbes, such as bacteria, virus, fungi, and spores, by destroying their inner configuration and absorbing the cells elements.

According to the studies an AC running daily for 6 months without proper cleaning and maintenance, it’s cooling capacity is likely to diminish up to 50%. In the fast-paced world, to routinely clean and maintain the AC is a challenge. But thankfully premium Godrej models come with Auto Clean technology which makes the AC clean itself. When operational, the fan of the AC runs for a few seconds after the AC has been switched off. This happens to blow dust and other particles out of the air conditioner.

Green Balance Technology using R290 Refrigerant

Refrigerant used in ACs are major contributors to global warming when it comes to household emissions. Godrej has done a commendable job in NXW series ACs that comes with unique Green Balance technology. This helps in achieving highest energy efficiency in an environmentally friendly manner using the highly eco-friendly R290 refrigerant. R290 is not only highly energy-efficient but also has zero ozone depletion potential and the lowest global warming potential. We believe this would be the way forward in the future with the rising acceptance of sustainable technologies and Godrej would be leading the pack with its eco-friendly conditioning proposition.

Aerodynamic Grid Fan and PPC Condenser with Nano Coating

The fan in modern Godrej ACs comes with an aerodynamic grid design to provide superior heat exchange. Made from high-quality virgin material this aerodynamic grid fan results in a better durability. The indoor unit comes with additional evaporator coils for better cooling. The condenser is an important component of the AC. Improved condenser design significantly improves the AC’s efficiency. New Godrej models use Parallel Flow Condenser (PFC) design philosophy that helps in power saving and results in a better heat exchange. The best part is it has special gold nano coating which protects from AC from corrosion and increases the life of the condenser.

Inverter Technology with BLDC motors and EEV

Premium AC models from Godrej comes with inverter compressor technology further powered by BLDC motors and EEV. With an increased operating frequency range, this inverter compressor technology gives Godrej an upper hand over its competitors in terms of cooling efficiency. So, what is an inverter technology? Well, to be really simple, inverter technology is analogous to the car accelerator. When a compressor needs more power, it gives it more power. When it needs less power, it gives less power. With this technology, the compressor is always on but draws less power or more power depending on the temperature of the incoming air and the level set in the thermostat.

Compared to the ordinary inverter, Godrej ACs comes with 3 BLDC motors. One for the compressor and other two for indoor and outdoor units respectively. BLDC motors impart high rotational speed with minimal vibrations. Thus, this design used in Godrej models makes the AC operate in a wider range of frequency which in turn helps in maintaining the desired temperature with minimal fluctuations.

Opposed to the capillary or thermostatic valve used in conventional AC, Godrej premium AC models use electronic expansion valve (EEV). Capillary/thermostatic valves are usually debarred of any advanced electronic component and simply allows the free flow of the refrigerant. But EEV allows controlling of refrigerant flow according to the load. This assist in improving the efficiency of the coveted cooling.

Pros and Cons of Godrej Air Conditioners

Energy efficiency is the key theme and the biggest strength of Godrej as an AC brand. Modern ACs coming with Green Balance technology and usage of the eco-friendliest refrigerant R290 surely makes the Godrej coveted contender when it comes to an energy saving perspective. The Green Balance technology results in lowest emissions, lowest ozone depletion, and importantly lowers the power consumption. However, as copper coils to handle R290 refrigerant is not available in India, these models with R290 come with aluminium PFC condenser. With 6.15 ISEER Godrej NXW ACs are one of the most energy-efficient air conditioners in India. The design is another plus for Godrej. The outer shell that new Godrej ACs comes with, is pretty impressive. The white finish and curved body of high-end Godrej models will completely enhance the beauty of the room where it would be used.

The thing which goes against the Godrej is perception. Godrej does not have a good reputation in the AC market. Especially in the online segment where many of its ACs have got poor reviews. But, the Godrej is trying its best to change this perception by using newer and greener technologies.

Conclusion

Godrej is an established Indian AC brand offering a plethora of features in its newer models. Usage of the electronic expansion valve, multiple sensors, BLDC motors and inverter compressor ensures that the room is perfectly cooled with zilch noise. 4-way air technology ensures cooling reaches even to the far-flung corners, so there is no discrepancy in cooling inside the room. Godrej ACs are also well equipped to filter different all types of allergens, dust mites, bacteria, etc using an arrangement of multiple layers of filters working in tandem. If you are an environmentalist or a user who would heavily use the AC but want power consumption to be minimum, then you can surely consider Godrej for your next AC purchase.
