Whenever working of an air conditioner is explained, it is explained by detailing how a system with the condenser, compressor and evaporator works. Although the explanation is technically absolutely correct, but many people find it hard to understand. No wonder we at Bijli Bachao get a lot of questions from people asking various things like: “Can I use my AC to cool two rooms?”, or “Why is it taking so much time for the temperature to come down?”, or “Why
It has been several years since Inverter Air Conditioners (and refrigerators) arrived in India. Initially, people were sceptical of the new technology, but lately, people have started embracing it. No doubt that it is because Inverter Technology Air Conditioners save a huge amount of electricity. However, there is one big confusion (or we may call it a myth) that exists amongst most consumers: that Air Conditioners with Inverter Technology
A few years back when Inverter ACs were introduced in Indian markets, there was a lot of skepticism about their success in Indian conditions. Although they are quite successful and popular internationally, these ACs did have to go through the tests of Indian consumers. Despite some negative rumors by a section of the market, Inverter ACs have come out with flying colors and have become popular in India. One thing that everyone knows (and
Air conditioners have found very high applicability in the current scenario of temperature increase all over the world. There are various parts to an air conditioner which when function in cohesion to produce a cool and comfortable environment within the room. In this article, we will try to understand about a particular component of an air conditioner: Compressor. How a compressor contributes to the whole process of air conditioning, different types of compressors
Air conditioners have dutifully performed their task of providing us with moments of relief during the scorching heat of summers through the years. The primitive stages of "cooling the air" date back to hundreds of years ago in Ancient Egypt, when reeds were hung on windows with dripping water. Like any other invention of man, air conditioners have also seen many stages of development to evolve into the form which we are seeing and using today.
We all attach a utility with every object we buy. One of the basic things we expect from an air conditioner is that it should give good cooling. Faster or slower, but it should cool well in order to get the temperatures down to comfortable levels. When it does not do so, we do not derive utility from the product and want to replace it. But these questions arise in several minds: “Why is it that my AC which was cooling well till a few months back is not cooling well
During the scorching summer heat, cool pleasant air is just a switch away. Just turn on the air conditioner and within minutes you can feel the cold air around you. Apart from the various factors that determine which type of air conditioner is better, there is an age-old debate as to which type of coil is better - Copper or Aluminium.

Hence, we at Bijli Bachao, thought of providing some information which enables people to make an informed decision before buying an air conditioner.
Comparison of various refrigerants (R-410A, R-22, R-32, R-290, R-134A, R-600A) used for Air Conditioners and Refrigerators
While growing up in the 1990s I used to hear a lot about CFCs (or chlorofluorocarbons) and their involvement in depletion of ozone layer. There were talks that all the refrigerants that cause environmental harm will be phased out. But as the years passed by, the thought of checking if a refrigerator or air conditioner that is being purchased has environmentally friendly refrigerant or not, vanished, as the presumption was that the CFCs have been phased out and we only
