Top Ten Air Conditioners in India by electricity consumption and size in 2018

By on February 19, 2018

For all the households using air conditioners, a major component of electricity bill is contributed by the air conditioners. If you are someone who is worried about high electricity bills due to air conditioners then buying energy efficient air conditioner makes much more sense to you. There are multiple types and brands of air conditioners available in the market today. Everyone wishes to be informed before making a buying decision of an air conditioner. Most sources on the Internet provide details on features and reviews. Electricity consumption hardly becomes the deciding factor. To help people make electricity consumption as deciding factor, we at Bijli Bachao have decided to put up a list of Top Ten air conditioners in India by electricity consumption and size.


Best Air Conditioner / AC brands in India

  • Hitachi
  • Daikin
  • Mitsubishi (Heavy and Electric)
  • O General
  • Blue Star

These are considered as premium brands for Air Conditioners in India. Out of these Hitachi, Daikin, Mitsubishi and General are Japanese brands while Blue Star is an Indian brand. These brands are known for their refrigeration technology and thus offer quite robust products. Hitachi, Daikin and Blue Star also offer great energy efficient models and typically rank high in our top rankings (based on BEE data). Other brands that are really good include: LG, Samsung, Voltas, Godrej, Whirlpool, Carrier, Toshiba and Panasonic. This brand value mentioned over here is based on our perception of various brands available in India. Some people may have had good experience with other brands as well, but then their market presence is too small to make a judgement.
The list of top models below does not involve this perception and is purely based on data from Manufacturers & BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) on energy efficiency (or electricity consumption). Before choosing a brand, you must also ensure that the brand is present in your city/locality and is able to provide good service for your purchased product.

The Basis of this ranking:

  • The basis of this ranking is the data from Manufacturers & BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) for the fixed speed and inverter technology air conditioners. BEE data contains ISEER, Annual Electricity Consumption (in units consumed for 1600 hrs of usage), cooling capacity and power consumption and this information is self reported by the manufacturers. The values are calculated under test conditions. To understand more about ISEER and BEE’s new star rating standards please check this link: link.
  • We have taken the data on ISEER and categorized it by the marketing tonnage of the air conditioner. The air conditioner with the highest ISEER is given the highest ranking. Multiple models with the same value are given the same rank.
  • It is important to note that knowing Cooling Capacity of an air conditioner is very important because for same tonnage the cooling capacity of various models vary. The higher the cooling capacity more heat an air conditioner can remove.
  • It is also important to size an air conditioner for a room properly. An oversized air conditioner cannot remove humidity properly and undersized will keep running all the time increasing electricity consumption. So it is important to choose right cooling capacity.
  • The list above contains only the top ten ranked air conditioners.
  • We have not listed Window Air Conditioners because there are no energy efficient options available in Window Air Conditioners and it is better to go for Split Air Conditioners.
  • We regularly update this list as new models get added in the BEE list of air conditioners.
  • The data is as per BEE’s standards as applicable in 2018. As per current standards, BEE has started publishing annual electricity consumption data for air conditioners assuming usage to be 1600 hrs a year.

FAQs for Buying AC in India

Here are some quick FAQs from people who are looking to buy ACs in India:

  • 1) What is the size of AC that I should buy for my room?

    Size of an AC is a very important aspect that one should evaluate before buying an AC. Oversized AC can significantly increase electricity consumption while undersized may not cool properly. You can use the calculator given on the bottom of this page to evaluate your needs: AC Calculator Link

  • 2) Which star rating would be good for me?

    The choice of star rating depends on the hours that you use your AC for and the electricity tariffs in your area. Typically we do not recommend going for anything less than BEE 3 star rating. However your exact need can be evaluated using the calculator given on the bottom of this page: AC Calculator Link. You can input your daily and yearly consumption values and the calculator will suggest you the right star rating based on your use. It will also provide you approximate amount of money that you will pay for electricity if you choose a particular star rated AC. This can help you evaluate the benefit of a specific star rating.

  • 3) What are Inverter ACs?

    Inverter AC is the latest energy efficient (electricity saving) technology which is available in the market. It has the potential to save 30-60% electricity depending on your choice of the model. You can read more about Inverter ACs on this link: Air Conditioners with Inverter technology can help save electricity

  • 4) I saw a BEE star rating for an Inverter AC. Is it valid?

    BEE star rating was not available for inverter technology till the year 2015. But BEE has introduced star rating for inverter ACs in 2016. It is not a mandatory rating so it is not necessary for all manufacturers to get their AC model rated, but some have started using the same as many consumers believe in star ratings. The ratings will become mandatory in 3 years.

    However, the rating standards for inverter ACs and fixed speed ACs are different. A BEE 3 star rated inverter AC will still be more efficient than a BEE 5 star rated fixed speed AC. But BEE 2 or 1 star rated inverter AC may not be as efficient as BEE 5 star rated fixed speed AC.

  • 5) I have less use of AC, is Inverter AC still be better for me?

    It all depends on your usage of AC and tariffs. If your usage is high and tariff is also high, then it will be much better to go for inverter AC. For e.g. in places like Mumbai where tariff is already Rs 11-12 per unit for last slab, even a decent nightly use for 3 summer months would be better off with an inverter AC than a regular AC. But then it depends on your usage and tariff.

  • 6) My dealer tells me to buy a 3 star AC as Inverter AC is good only if I use it for 18 hours daily throughout the year. Is it true?

    Most dealers are less equipped or trained on the technicalities and evaluation of ACs. Many a times they are not updated with latest information. Dealer training is one of the biggest challenges for energy efficiency. We would suggest that you use the calculator given on the bottom of this page to evaluate your needs: AC Calculator Link . You can see the numbers on right side of the calculator to see how much you will be paying for electricity if you go for a specific star rating.

  • 7) Is it beneficial to go for a bigger tonnage AC? Will it cool better?

    Not really. In fact bigger tonnage ACs consume much more electricity. And they overcool. So if you set temperature to 25 degrees in thermostat, it will make the room cooler than that (more on this link: Oversizing ACs). A right sized AC is far better than oversized or undersized AC.

  • 8) Can I go for a smaller sized AC from what the calculator suggests me? Will it save electricity for me?

    It is always better to right size an AC because oversizing increases electricity consumption and undersizing does not cool well. However undersizing can save electricity. Ideally sizing is done to assure that AC can cool well up to 25 degree centigrade. If you slightly undersize then it may cool only up to 27-28. And will save electricity as well. But then it cannot be equal to buying 1 ton AC when you need 1.5 ton (as that will be gross undersizing). It can be done if you buy 1 ton instead of 1.2 ton. Also sizing is done considering peak summer temperature in mind. If your usage is mostly at night (when temperature is much less) then you may consider buying an undersized AC as well.

    Another situation where you can think of undersizing is if you plan to set up an AC in your living room which is huge. For a huge space cooling requirement is much high and if you try to rightsize the AC then you would need a huge AC. In such case you can undersize the AC and setup one close to the seating area (area where cool air is required). This will make sure that the seating area remains comfortable and you do not end up putting up a huge AC that can cost you a lot on electricity bills.

  • 9) Which brand is good?

    This is the most common question we get which is most difficult to answer. We have tried to answer this on our link: Which is the best brand to buy?. A lot of it is perception based on experience. However these are the brands that you will most likely find in our recommendations: Daikin, Hitachi, Sharp, Panasonic, General, Mitsubishi, Carrier, Blue Star, LG, Voltas, Samsung, Godrej. Not that other companies are bad, but these are top most. The only brands that we do not recommend to buy are the brands that used to be retailers and now have started selling ACs under their own brand names.

  • 10) Which brand gives best service in my area?

    This is again a very common question and extremely difficult to answer. Most of our analysis is purely technical based on the specifications of various models. Service levels depends on local service stations of various brands. It varies from city to city. Even within the city the service levels may vary. The best people to provide you suggestions regarding this are your local dealers and people who have used a particular brand.

  • 11) What is EER? How can I use EER to compare ACs? How does EER of inverter AC compare to EER of other ACs?

    EER or Energy Efficiency Ratio is a representation of how well an AC uses electricity. Higher the number, better the use of electricity by an AC. By no means is it a representation of actual electricity consumption. A 1 ton AC and 1.5 ton AC can have same EER but their electricity consumption will differ. And that is because 1.5 ton AC has to do more work than 1 ton AC. Same EER just means that they are equally good at using a unit of electricity.

    However inverter technology is slightly different. Although usage of EER is not the right representation of an Inverter AC but many manufacturers do put the same for inverter ACs as well. If you want to do a right comparison then divide the EER of inverter AC by 0.8 (assuming it is just 20% more efficient than fixed speed AC .. however it can be more). So if you want to compare two ACs inverter and non inverter both of EER 3.3 then divide 3.3 by 0.8 to get comparison EER of inverter AC. Please note 20% is just pessimistic efficiency level for inverter AC. It can be more.

  • 12) Is a lower EER of inverter AC better than higher EER of fixed speed AC?

    FAQ no 11 above gives a good answer for this. In most cases even a lower EER of Inverter AC will be better than higher EER of BEE 5 star rated fixed speed AC. But still we recommend that you go for an inverter AC of EER 3.2 and above (at least).

  • 13) I want to buy copper condenser but the model specification says it is pre-coated aluminium fins. Is it really copper?

    To explain this, first let us explain types of condensers that are available in the market:

    a) PFC (Parallel Flow Condenser) or Multi Jet which is all aluminium. It is highly energy efficient but if it fails it need to be replaced. Although they come with anti corrosion coatings, but still fixing the small multi channels in case of clogging is difficult. Manufacturers specifically mention PFC or Multi Jet. PFC will look like this: PFC

    b) Coil and Fin type condenser, where coils are copper and fins are aluminium. Even in this the one with anti corrosion coating (also known as blue fin/gold fin) is better. Most brands have such type of condenser. You can ask the dealer to open the outdoor and indoor unit for you and you can check if it looks blue or not. Blue fin is the best for corrosion protection. Blue fin will look like this: blue_fin_condenser

    Now it is not that copper cannot corrode. What is important is to select a condenser that has anti corrosion coating. So ask for a condenser with copper pipes and pre coated aluminium fin. Even if it is aluminium then it should be coated with corrosion protection. When an AC spec says that it has pre-coated aluminium fins it is a coil and fin type condenser which is copper.

  • 14) I have a tight budget, should I go for a window AC?

    Window ACs have efficiency levels 1 level lower than split ACs. So a BEE 5 star rated window AC is equivalent in efficiency to BEE 4 star rated split AC. The reason for the same is that manufacturers have started reducing number of window AC models and have started solely focussing on split ACs. Most of the new technology is available only in split ACs. In fact only BEE 5 star rating is available only in 1.5 ton window ACs. 1 and 2 ton window ACs do not have BEE 5 star rated options. And even the 5 star rated 1.5 ton window ACs are equivalent to BEE 4 star rated split ACs. So our recommendation is to go for a split AC. However, if you are really tight on budget and you need 1.5 ton AC then you can go for BEE 5 star rated window AC. But if you need 1 or 2 ton AC then better go with split AC.

  • 15) Which refrigerant is environment friendly?

    R410A, R32 & R290 are the most environment friendly refrigerants in ACs. R410A is non flammable, R32 is mildly flammable and R290 is highly flammable refrigerant. If you are planning to buy an AC with refrigerant that is flammable then we would recommend you to go for a good brand as better brands do take care of safety related issues with the refrigerants. For safe choice you can go with R410A. Daikin uses R32 but it is a very reliable brand.

  • 16) Should I buy an AC online?

    Depends a lot on who is the seller. These days online websites are marketplaces which means they are not the direct sellers. One of the biggest issue with online buying is to get right warranty and support from the brand. If the seller is an authorised seller, you will get warranty as well as support. If seller is not authorised then the same becomes extremely difficult. Although portals do claim to sell original products, but it is extremely important to check seller reviews and confirm if you will get warranty on product or not.

  • 17) Do you have any specific suggestion for me based on my budget?

    Our suggestions are mostly based on energy efficiency of the model and the top brands (as listed in FAQ 9). We do not recommend any specific brand because everyone has a different experience with a brand. Also the service levels of various brands differs at various locations (as stated in FAQ 10). In fact many people who visit review websites like mouthshut get negative reviews of almost every brand. The reason for the same is that it is practically impossible for any brand to satisfy each and every consumer. The best thing that we can suggest you is to look at the list of top brands above, choose the brand that you like (or get a good feedback on from local dealers), then select the most efficient model of your tonnage requirement from this list: http://bit.ly/OpE1JR. If you do not find that model in the market, then just go for the model with highest EER in your preferred brand and suggested star rating.

  • 18) What is the electricity consumption of a specific AC?

    We have listed the power consumption of almost all ACs available in market on this link: http://bit.ly/OpE1JR. However, the number listed on this page is wattage of AC. To convert it into units per hour, you will have to divide the wattage by 1000 (so a 1450 W would convert to 1.45 units). Another point to note is that the actual consumption will not be just wattage divided by 1000. It will depend on temperature setting as well as various other factors. However, to get a ballpark number just multiple the unit per hour value that you have got in previous step by 0.8 (for fixed speed AC assuming compressor runs for 80% of the time) and 0.64 (for inverter AC assuming inverter AC to be 20% more efficient than fixed speed AC). So if an AC is rated at 1450 W, then if it is fixed speed AC then its power consumption would be (1450/1000) * 0.8 = 1.16 units per hour and if it is inverter AC then it would be (1450/1000) * 0.64 = 0.928 units per hour. Please note that these are just approximate values and power consumption of AC depends on several factors listed on this page: Things that impact electricity consumption in air conditioners

  • 19) Your calculator tells me a certain size for my room, is it correct?

    The calculation by the calculator is absolutely correct as per our knowledge. We have put in all the knowledge that we have about AC sizing in this calculator. We will provide you the same number even if you ask us personally.

  • 20) Is stabiliser required for my AC?

    If there are huge voltage fluctuations in your area then you must go for a stabiliser for your AC. It is more important if you go for a fixed speed AC. Inverter ACs can handle voltage fluctuations much better, however they have electronics that are prone to damage in case there is power surge (sudden increase of current as it happens in case of short circuits). So Inverter ACs should be protected from surges. A surge guard should be good enough for inverter ACs. If you still feel that you should put a stabiliser for inverter AC then you should go for one with surge protection feature.

  • 21) There is a significant price difference between a BEE 3 star rated AC and Inverter AC. Is Inverter AC really worth it?

    Inverter ACs save much more electricity as compared to BEE 3 star rated ACs. They can save electricity even if you use AC for 1 hour. However what is important is to analyse how much money you can save by using inverter AC as compared to how much extra do you pay for buying it. The calculator on this link: AC Calculator Link can help you figure out the yearly electricity cost difference that you will incur if you go for a BEE 3 star rated AC as compared to Inverter AC. This can help you make a decision to go for right type of AC.

  • 22) What is Bluefin/Gold Fin Technology? Is it copper?

    As we have mentioned in FAQ 13 above, Blue Fin and Gold Fin both are copper. Please refer to that FAQ to understand more about technology. You can also refer to this link: Air Conditioners: Copper Coil vs Aluminium Coil

  • 23) Which Air Filters are necessary for my use?

    The reason air filters are required in an AC is because ACs are meant to cool closed spaces. ACs do not take air from outside (unlike air cooler), they just cool the indoor air and circulate it. If the room (where AC is installed) remains closed for a long time, the quality of air deteriorates. It can result in accumulation of bacteria. Air Filters help improve the quality of air. However, it is important only if the room remains closed for a long time. It may be helpful even if you use it for 8-10 hours at night. Various brands have different kind of filters. It is more of a safety feature. Not absolutely necessary but good to have. You can choose the one that you feel you need.

  • 24) Will it be fine if I go for an Aluminium Condenser?

    It is absolutely fine if you go for an aluminium condenser if your area is not hot and humid. Biggest problem with aluminium condenser is corrosion. If the environment is not corrosive then it will not fail. And in fact Aluminium Condensers have high energy efficiency as well. Brands l like Samsung that have aluminium PFC condenser provide good enough corrosion protection for the condensers as well. In fact Samsung gives warranty on condenser too. People in many places have been using ACs with PFC condenser since quite some time and they have not failed. Their chance of failure is high only if the environment is corrosive, otherwise they can be a great choice.

  • 25) The models you have listed are not available in the stores. What do I do?

    Our data collection is based on data from BEE and models listed by brands on their website. We also try to check if the models are available in online stores. But it is possible that those models are not available in physical stores. Stores typically keep only those models that sell more (not necessarily energy efficient). You can try contacting authorised dealers of the brand and if you do not find any model with them, then the best bet is to go for the most energy efficient model that you get from your selected brands. We try updating our database every 2-3 months but it is possible that some of the models that we have collected are either very new or even discontinued ones.

  • 26) I have a shop/commercial establishment. Can you please help me buy an AC for that?

    Sizing an Air Conditioner involves taking a lot of environmental factors into consideration. A whole lot of things impact sizing as we have listed on our article Things that impact electricity consumption in air conditioners. As far as residential setups are concerned, things that are kept in a room and environment can be standardised (as we have done for the calculator) or can be assumed. But it is extremely difficult to assume or standardise a commercial setup or shop. A shop may be filled with a lot of products, or a commercial establishment can have a whole lot of people seated in it or equipments installed in it. Everything impacts electricity consumption. Thus it is very hard for us to evaluate or calculate requirement for a shop or commercial establishment. In fact the calculator that we have may not work perfectly for shop/commercial establishments. It is always better to get technical evaluation done by engineers from a reputed brand. If you want to install AC for your shop/commercial establishment, the best thing to do is to call a dealer of a brand that you want to go for and ask them to send an engineer to evaluate.

  • 27) How does Air Flow Rate (or Air Delivery) of AC impact cooling?

    Air Flow is an important aspect for cooling a room. High Air Flow can result in cooling a larger area and even faster cooling. Air Flow depends on fan speed. In general if you keep high fan speed the air circulation would be more and thus air will cool faster. Increase air circulation also results in a farther reach of cooling. So if you have a choice then of for AC with higher air flow rate.

One more thing Hitachi 5200i 1 Ton (RAU512AWEA) is not available with any store. Some said its being discontinued, and if I buy online I may have trouble regarding its parts (repairs). Hitachi is also comming up with new lineup ?

2
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hitachi too should come out with new series soon. We are also waiting for their updates. Most brands: Voltas, LG, Bluestar, Daikin, Carrier, Panasonic have released their new lists. Hitachi is awaited.

However, if you buy a 2017 model, you will not have trouble getting the repairs or parts. Thousands of people bought these models last year, they may also need repairs and a brand will not stop providing products/services on older series just because they have changed models in the current year. They may stop providing service on models that may be 15 years old, but not those that are 1 year old.

By the way, I bought a Hitachi for myself from Flipkart and I got proper support from Hitachi. So it is not that online products do not get service. You just need to make sure that you buy from a proper seller online. Flipkart and Amazon are marketplaces with several sellers on the platform. You just need to choose one with better ratings.

After so much research I decided to buy DAIKIN JTKM35SRV16. But now that is not available on website, even the sales people of the store (reliance digital, croma etc its availbe in the store) said new products will be comming in early march. On their website DAIKIN has JTKJ35TV16U (new) and FTKF35TV16U (new) which are exactly similar to JTKM35SRV16 (old). So should I wait for the new release or just go with JTKM35 ? What do you think will be the price for these new (similar) AC's. JTKM35 is for 48800, I am getting it in 43500 (reliance) and 41000 (vijay sales), what should I do?

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Daikin JTKM35 is still available: http://www.daikinindia.com/products-services/split-ac/salubrious-air-conditioning/1.0tr/wall-mounted-type-5-star-r-32-jtkm

However, newer model JTKJ35 has better operating temperature of 50 degrees as compared to 46 of JTKM. Last year Daikin was criticized for having a lower operating temperature of 46 degrees. Which means the outdoor unit can function properly only till the temperature of surrounding air was up to 46 degrees. Beyond that, it did not work well. This year they have improved most of their models and increased operating temperature to 50. JTKJ has an operating temperature of 50 as compared to 46 of JTKM. Although I am not sure about Daikin, many brands are also coming up with corrosion protection for outdoor unit PCB which was a problem with inverter ACs last year (especially in corrosive areas). So 2018 series are certainly better.

These models should be out in market by 1st week of march. The price should not be much different for the newer models as there is no significant technology change.

1.It appears that the specifications and features of Daikin JTKM series (2017) and JTKJ series (2018) are similar. Is there any considerable difference between these series ? If so, Kindly intimate the same.
2.Regarding cooling capacity : Some companies are expressing the cooling capacity in decimal fractions and some companies are expressing the same as whole numbers. How to know which one is best ?
3.It is observed that ISEER is expressed as a decimal fraction. If the fraction is higher, the consumption of energy is lower. Is it true always ?

6
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Here is my response:

1) Last year Daikin was criticized for having a lower operating temperature of 46 degrees. Which means the outdoor unit can function properly only till the temperature of surrounding air was up to 46 degrees. Beyond that, it did not work well. This year they have improved most of their models and increased operating temperature to 50. JTKJ has an operating temperature of 50 as compared to 46 of JTKM. Although I am not sure about Daikin, many brands are also coming up with corrosion protection for outdoor unit PCB which was a problem with inverter ACs last year (especially in corrosive areas). So 2018 series are certainly better.

2) As for cooling capacity, you may see 3600 or 3.6. When you see 3.6 multiply it by 1000. Because this number is either in watts or kilowatts. In kilowatts, you will see it in decimal. In Watts, you will see it in thousands.

3) ISEER is a measure of efficiency. Which means how good an AC is in using the electricity input that it takes. It is a ratio of output by the input. So if there are two ACs with the same ISEER, but different cooling capacities, the one with lower cooling capacity will have lower power consumption and one with higher cooling capacity will have higher power consumption. But the one with higher cooling capacity will also cool faster. What it means is that both the ACs are equally good at utilizing each watt of input it gets.

Hi Abhishek,

As you guided me I decided to buy Bluestar DAFU model from store. I just want to know what things i should check so that i should not get cheated.
Also let me know is it the correct time to buy? Do Bluestar has any changes in DAFU AND PAFU models in 2018? for eg warranty, features etc. as i dont see these models online only i see PAFU in AMAZON and it says 4+1 year warranty and when we check bluestar they say 10 years in compressor.

Little confused like the stores or online site are selling their old stock and not the ones which are 2018 models.

let me know what you would see and check once u go to buy DAFU OR PAFU Model as you r expertise advise is required here now.

THANKS

Hi RAVI,

Bluestar released a new product list for 2018 just 2 days back. Although they have made a slight change in DAFU series (they have added a dual rotary compressor), but that is done only for 1.5 and 2-ton models and not for 1-ton model. However, they have certainly changed the warranty from 5 years to 10 years on the compressor in 2018. 5 years was in 2017. In fact, they have changed warranty to 10 years on all of their inverter models. So yes, the online sites do have old data listed. Energy efficiency and rest all the features in DAFU are the same as 2017.

Hello Sir,
I am from Durgapur West Bengal.I am planning to buy a 1.5 Ton[ based on your tonnage calcutor] 3 star Daikin Inverter AC. My usage is 6-8 hours per day for 4 months.
Actually I have seen a 2017 model - FTKH50SRV16 and in 2018 with the same specification a new model launched I.e FTKL50TV16U.
Is there any minor differences between the two models? pls explain....Actually the price of new one is 1000 rupees more than the previous one. Pls suggest me should I go with the new one??

Is it a good choice or would u like to suggest any other models.my budget is within 42k. thanks in advance.

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

FTKL has slightly better ISEER (3.7 as compared to 3.65) and also has PM 2.5 (pollution filter). If you get the newer model in your budget then it will be better you go for that. You can also get Bluestar models in your budget that would be slightly more efficient than this Daikin model and will also have copper. But just make sure which brand has better service in your area and decide accordingly.

11

Okay..
thank you so much for your reply.
In case of bluestar within my budget which one will be best - tafu model? And kindly pls specify efficient in which sence ? ISEER rating / more filters and specification s /better cooling capacity...................!!?
Actually initially I thought in case of inverter technology Daikin is best.that's why selected DAIKIN.
thanks in advance

12
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

But both TAFU and GAFU have ISEER of 3.77 and 3.7 respectively. So they will be comparable to the model you selected from Daikin (the 2018 model). Daikin is a Japanese brand and premium brand. Bluestar is Indian premium brand. Daikin is pioneer in Inverter Technology. They are certainly very good.

13
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Palash,

When I say efficient, it is more energy efficient with better ISEER. Also, Bluestar models have great filters too (although no PM2.5 but still they have 7 different filters). In Bluestar 3CNHW18TAFU has good ISEER and cooling capacity range. They have also come up with a new model this year 3CNHW18GAFU which has good ISEER and cooling capacity range as well.

14

Hello Sir,
I recently purchased bluestar inverter ac (3cnhw18nafu).It gives good cooling.But i have one doubt .My ac outdoor unit fan stops after 10 to 15 minutes.and it starts again after few miniutes.Is inverter ac fan not supposed to keep spinning continously and change speed according to temperature?.How would i know if compressor is running or not?.Also is it safe to cover outdoor ac unit with plastic when not in use?.

15
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Harsh,

It is not the fan that is supposed to run all the time. It is the compressor that should not stop. But even for the compressor, it depends a lot on the difference in outdoor and indoor temperature. If the difference between outdoor and the indoor temperature is not much then even the compressor will not work. But if there is a good difference then it should continue running.

Check the cool air that is coming from the indoor unit. If it is not cold enough then the compressor may not be working. Also, it is fine to cover outdoor unit with plastic when AC is not in use. But when it is in use, it should not be covered.

16

My Room is on top floor, above is Terrace living in Nagpur Maharashtra salesman told to not buy Inverter AC for room as it will not make room sufficient cool in peak summer by inverter AC he suggested for Normal 5 stst Ac for the same what is t

17
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Anand,

There should be no problem in installing inverter AC even if your ceiling gets direct sunlight. You just have to increase the tonnage accordingly. I would suggest that you use the calculator on this page to do the calculation.

Also normal ACs are no longer 5 star. Normal ACs would be between 1 and 3 star as per 2018 ratings and inverter ACs are 3 to 5 star.

Quite likely the salesman may be looking to sell his old stock.

18

hi MR Abhishek.
Pls clear a small doubt .How some company sell a/c so cheaply as every one know a/c is costly stuff.
There cost is depend on the product specification .Some company like Micro max,Sansuai,Hyundai,Intex etc sell a/c under 30k with 3 or 5 star .Are product of these companies are good or just a bluff.
Some of the sales man in the big dealers are promoting these product only.I got confused when i gone to buy a a/c They speak like these are as good as other top brand companies .
if possible please share some knowledge towards the above mention companies a/c.If any of them have a good model pls suggest .or i will go for some branded company.I am looking for 1.5 ton a/c with 3 or 5 stars..Pls suggest .
Thanks in advance

Hi Abhilash,

When you go out to the market to buy a smartphone, you can get one in 4K and you can even get a 70k iPhone. There are lot of factors that impact the price:

1) Reliability: A brand gains brand value when more people talk positive about it and more people want to buy it. It just shows that something works. And reliable brands charge a premium for the "brand value".

2) Features: In general if you go out in the market for an iPhone, you know that you will get a lot of features in an iPhone which will not be there in a 4K phone. There is a premium for features. But if you want a phone just to call, even a 4K phone can call. You do not need an iPhone for that. Similarly, all ACs available in the market can cool. However, if you want them to be energy efficient, feature rich (air purification, sensor-based optimization, etc etc), then you pay more for that.

3) R&D: Some brands spend money in research and coming up with new technologies, while some just see that there is a demand which can be catered to by importing a few parts from cheaper locations (e.g. cheap materials from China) and assemble it. They do not put much effort on making sure that the system is designed properly. And thus they do not spend much and so their input costs are low (for raw materials as well as other research) and thus they are cheap. Some even just import completely assembled products from China and rebrand it in India.

Now it is not that cheap products do not work completely. They do and that is why they sell in the market. However, a lot depends on your usage and how you use something. Just like a 4K phone can also work, a cheap AC can also work. But it will be less efficient, less reliable, but yes cheaper. Better brands will be more reliable, more efficient. Also, the performance of good brand will not deteriorate much over time whereas those of cheaper brand will deteriorate faster. Also, even for the branded ones, you need to make sure that you maintain them properly and use them properly to make sure that they work well over a long time.

continued....Also budget is 45000. There are lot of questions in my mind. like would daikin will last long, will samsung alloy model with 10 yrs compressor wareanty is a good feature and will it be also go long? also PAFU AND DAFU BLUESTAR Series is old models with 4.71 iseer so will it be having huge difference with 5.8 to 5.0 iseer models. Also i just saw those bluestar models also providing 10 yrs warranty which was 5 yrs few days back. i checked price from different dealers for PAFU AND DAFU series and they offered 37000 (Vijay sales)to 49000 (other bluestar dealers)so little worried why so much difference.

so please help me technically which will be good for me in long run.

21

Hi Abhishek,

please suggest 1 ton inverter Ac. need to go in long run. should have good filters, condensor, least maintainance, maxcooling, energy efficient. my usage 8 hrs daily for 10 months. very confused with models- godrej Godrej-GSC 12 FIXH 7 GGPG, bluestar DAFU (as u stated PAFU & DAFU. and now u updated Samsung & Daikin models

22
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ravi,

The list updated yesterday is based on latest updates of models by various brands and new BEE list. February is the time in the year when most brands come up with new models and that is why the update.

Now few points in response to your questions:

1) Daikin is a premium Japanese brand. It is highly likely that Daikin will last long. However, being a premium brand, repairs may be a bit expensive as compared to Indian brands like Godrej, Bluestar, Voltas. But repairs would be needed only if the AC is not maintained well or installed properly. You will find good features in Daikin.

2) Samsung alloy model has 10 years warranty on compressor and not on Condenser. Condenser (or heat exchanger) is the one which is made of copper or aluminium. It is not the compressor in which copper or alloy is important. Most brands can easily give 10 years warranty on the compressor as inverter compressors will easily work without failure for 10 years.

3) Another important aspect to consider is corrosiveness of your area. If your area is close to the sea, water body or any chemical factory, then it will be better to go for solid corrosion protection (even in copper condensers). Also, PCBs of inverter ACs are prone to failure in a corrosive environment. And the repairs can get expensive in such case. But if your area is not corrosive then even an alloy condenser can be a great choice and can work great for long.

4) Blue Star is one of the premium Indian brands and they make great ACs with lots of good features. They have good filters too. But they do not have PM 2.5 or the latest PM 1.0 filters. LG is the only brand that has come out with PM 1.0 filter and Daikin has models with PM 2.5 filters. Most Indian brands have regular (but good) air filters. And Bluestar is great in that.

5) When you want max cooling then you will have to look at the cooling capacity of the AC. 1 ton is equal to 3504 watts cooling capacity. But then not all 1 ton AC will have the same cooling capacity. Some have less while some have more. So you will have to check the cooling capacity of the AC.

6) Difference between 4.71 and 5.8 ISEER would be about 100-120 units in 1600 hrs of usage. Your usage would be roughly 2400 hrs, so that would mean roughly 150-180 units in a year.

7) Prices depend on dealers and the margins that they have. There is also a lot of scope for negotiations. I think roughly 40000 is a good price for PAFU model. 49K is quite high and 37K is a steal. Also please note that PAFU has two variants: PAFU and PAFUSMART ... the SMART model has smart phone integration. The SMART model would be expensive.

Based on my knowledge, I think Bluestar PAFU would be the best model that you can get in your budget that has good filters, energy efficient and from a good brand. Or in BEE 5 star series you can look at Voltas 125V MZM which also has ISEER of 4.75 and is available for about 40K on TataCliq. But I think Bluestar would be a great choice.

23

Thanks Abhishek....Absolutely you nailed it.

Just few more questions...

Pros & cons of Daikin & bluestar. (specially PAFU vs latest model of Daikin only)

My Area is not corrosive so please tell me which model or brand has good PCB
to rely on, does PAFU has strong PCB or any other?

PM plays an important role? how ?

are their any huge difference between PAFU smart vs PAFU as i am not able to differentiate other than what you told above of WIFI technology which enable to handle through phone... but still that not a deal breaker feature for me.

Please answer this for me in detail as i am really going to buy as per your suggestion.

Once again Thanks for your detailed answers.

24
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ravi,

Daikin has 3 models in BEE 5 star rating category: FTKF35TV16U, FTKG35TV16W and JTKJ35TV16U ..... of these only JTKJ35TV16U has better air filtration technology. Other two just have basic filters. And JTKJ35TV16U has ISEER of 5.8 and I doubt that you can get it in your budget (although I do not have the market price of these models yet). FTKG35TV16W has similar ISEER to PAFU, while the other two have higher ISEER.

Bluestar model PAFU is more feature rich as it has great filters, it has corrosion protection, it has precision cooling (so you can set temperature in decimals as well). The only difference being one is an Indian brand an Daikin a Japanese. Difficult to justify the cost differece, just like a Toyota or Honda car may be expensive as compared to Maruti Suzuki car with similar features. Lot of premium is for brand.

If your area is not corrosive then PCB will not be a problem in both Daikin or Bluestar.

The SMART model can be controlled through WIfi without needing a remote. It is a step towards IOT (or Internet of Things). In future a lot of your appliances will be controlled centrally through and advanced intelligent system (like AI) and this is just a step towards that. No specific need for it right now. So you can go for regular PAFU model.

25

Hi Abhishek,

Thanks for guiding. I am going with bluestar 1 ton AC. I have one final question for you.

can you please please let me know all possible difference between PAFU vs DAFU inverter AC.

I have technical specs from site but want to know in layman language. Every possible difference which you can say from your research.

26
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

DAFU has more cooling capacity range. So it can slow down its speed (or reduce its tonnage) lower than PAFU and even on the higher side its speed (or tonnage) is more than PAFU. So it can cover a larger range so certainly better. DAFU also has ionizer which is not there in PAFU and also has a compact design.

Hi Abhishekji..
I am from Kerala & planning to buy an AC for my 120sqft bedroom ( Sunlight directly falls over the roof till 4:00pm). My AC is mainly for March April & May months.. My requirements is to keep my bedroom cool enough to have a comfortable sleep @night during summer.. How much I should spend for my AC, what type & capacity.. thanks in advance

28
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Manu,

If you use the calculator above and make sure that you check “room gets direct sunlight from top” and “West, South or South West walls of the room get direct sunlight” you will find that the calculator suggests that your cooling requirement is 1.2 ton. You can go for a 1.5 ton inverter AC if you feel that the room gets too hot. Although your usage is not very high and so even a 1.2 ton non inverter AC would also work fine.

Also there are multiple ways by which you can reduce heat coming into the room. One of them can be painting the rooftop with white sunlight reflecting paint. Or you can put a XPS (Extruded polystyrene board) as a false ceiling. Both these methods can reduce heat in the room and then even a 1 ton AC would be good enough. I would say go for a BEE 3 star rated 1.2 ton AC for your room. You should be able to get a BEE 3 star 1.2 ton AC in about 30-35K.

29

hi i am anish from kerala.I am planning to buy a a/c.My home is single stored building get direct sun light (top side) from 11-12 then from 1-6 west side towards wall.Due to this condition of getting sunlight some people advise me by saying that buying a/c is not effective as it will not cool the room because of direct sunlight.
Is this a correct saying that ---- make of house will be a factor for cooling ???.

KIndly suggest some a/c models .

how much the a/c capacity will be required

30
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Anish,

Direct sunlight on roof will increase the tonnage of the AC required but it is not correct that AC will not cool the room. What is the size of your room?

31

Room size - height-10,width-10.5,length-12., With people of 3 usage 2-3 months daily 5-6 hours.
Some suggested to do roofing then fix the a/c.as this will help in cooling and other factors. Is there any such logic ..

32
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Anish,

If you use the calculator above and make sure that you check "room gets direct sunlight from top" and "West, South or South West walls of the room get direct sunlight" you will find that the calculator suggests that your cooling requirement is 1.2 ton. You can go for a 1.5 ton inverter AC if you feel that the room gets too hot. Although your usage is not very high and so even a 1.2 ton non inverter AC would also work fine.

I would say go for a BEE 3 star rated 1.2 ton AC for your room.

33

Abhishek ji Can u suggest Some models for my requirement.
Do aluminum based compressor have big chance to get rust as compared to copper.? .whch one will you suggest

34
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Anish,

You can get 1.2-ton ACs in copper in Carrier, Hitachi and Voltas. Both copper and aluminium can corrode, it is just that copper ones are easier to fix while aluminium ones need replacement. However, most new aluminium ones are aluminium alloy ones which are still slower to corrode as compared to just aluminium (manufacturers also apply good corrosion protection). But still most people prefer copper. You can look at these ACs:

BrandModelModel NoFlipkart LinkAmazon Link

All these are BEE 3 star rated as per 2018 ratings. They are all 1.2 ton ACs and have copper condenser. They are all good on energy efficiency as well.

35

Abhishek ji
As per your suggestion i enquirer the above mentioned products But 1.2 ton not available in many shops.
So pls suggest me 1.5 ton 3 star models & i found that some of the top brands do not have service centers in my dist.does this facor should be kept in mind while purchasing a/c. While checking in this website under 1.5 ton 3 star category i had seen some new models like whirlpool & onida .Are their products??.What is your opinion about kenstar a/c ( i an using a air cooler of kenstar since 25 years) i am very much happy till now hope there technology will be good in a/c also..pls clear these doubts

36
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Anish,

First and foremost you should find out which brand has service centres in your dist. If you purchase one for which there is no service centre, then you will find it extremely difficult to maintain it properly. It will be good if you can just go around and check out which brands have service in your area. The list on this website is strictly based on energy efficiency. We do not apply brand preference while preparing this list. Whirlpool is a great brand. Ondia is a decent Indian brand. Kenstar has been good in coolers but has not come out as good in Air Conditioners. Let me know the brands that you find in your area and your budget and I will try to suggest you models accordingly.

Hi, I am planning to buy AC for my leaving room for which sq. ft is 204. I am in Chennai & staying on 1st floor. There is no other floor on my house. I will get sunrays only after 12:00 noon also both side lake was their near my house. My budget is 40000/- for this & going to use only in summer time. Advise the best option.

38
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Nilay,

A 200 sq ft room in Chennai that gets direct sunlight on the roof would need 2 tons of cooling. Your usage is not high so you may not need the most efficient AC. I think the best brand for you would be Carrier. In 40K you can get some decent models in Carrier that are 2 ton. You can look at these:

Carrier Ester pro 5 Star (was 5 star in 2017 will be 3 star in 2018) (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/lx2q0nuuuN )
or if your budget is strictly 40K then you can look at Carrier Ester pro 3 Star (was 3 star in 2017 will be 1 star in 2018) (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/lxXK~nuuuN )

Or if you can wait for a week or two more then there will be new models in market and we will have better idea on price. These two are 2017 models and most models in market currently are last year’s models.

Hi,

I want to purchase 1.5 Ton Split Inverter A.C. Please suggest some good brands with below criteria :

> R290 Refrigerant
> Good after sales service
> Complete copper coil and condenser
> Energy efficient/Less Power consumption
> Good warranty period

40
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Soumitra,

Godrej is the only brand that uses R290. Also currently copper coils that can handle R290 are not being made in India so Godrej is not using copper for R290. Would you like to expand your search to R410A? Also what is your budget for this AC?

41

Hello sir,
i have finalised 2 models 3nchw18nafu and 3cnhw18tafu from bluestar.Dealer is saying 3cnhw18nafu has dual rotary compressor so it is better than 3nchw18tafu...............which ac do you recommend between two?

42
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Harsh,

3cnhw18nafu has ISEER of 3.67 whereas 3nchw18tafu has ISEER of 3.77. The difference in annual electricity consumption (for 1600 hrs) is just 20 units. So in terms of efficiency, the difference is not huge but TAFU is marginally better. NAFU is certainly twin inverter model which makes it quieter in comparison to TAFU. Dual inverters are good but then one has to also compare the overall performance.

TAFU is more efficient but it has a slightly lower range of cooling capacity and also less CFM (air flow value). It is great if you are slightly oversizing your air conditioner (say you need 1.3 tons and you are going for 1.5 ton AC). NAFU has less efficiency but has higher CFM value and higher range of cooling capacity, so it is better if your room needs more cooling capacity or is a bigger room in general. Both are good.

43

Hi Abhishek, 1 m looking for 1.5T inverter AC Cu, anti corrossive paint, 3* preferably. Hitachi 3300i(RSB318IAEA) and 4200i(RSB418AAEA) having same MRP. Can u please tell me difference between these two models. Also suggest me comparable Daikin model as daikin website does not show jtkm series or any better brand. My budget 45000. Thanks.

44
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Sarkar,

Hitachi has multiple series: Kashikoi, Neo and Waza. The Kashikoi series are more feature rich (sensor rich) series where they try to optimize performance by using sensors. Waza series is their basic series. Neo still has some features.

Now you are looking at tow models: 4200i which is BEE 4 star rated Waza series and 3300i which is BEE 3 star rated Kashikoi series. Now BEE 4 star rated model will certainly consume less electricity as compared to BEE 3 star rated model. So 4200i will consume less electricity. But then it will not have the sensors for performance optimization. E.g of a sensor is like 4200i will have auto sleep control technology where it will try to optimize the performance of AC if people in the room are sleeping. Now these sensors can certainly have impact on electricity consumption, but will depend a lot on where the AC is placed. If it is placed in bedroom and the AC is used mostly at night then the sleep sensor will not only make environment comfortable but will also reduce electricity consumption. But if it is placed in a living room, then there won't be much benefit and in that case the model with basic features but more efficiency will work better.

Daikin does not show JTKM now because just this week they have updated their models list online. Every year in Feb-March manufacturers release new models. JTKM is 2017 model and brands have started updating their websites with new models. We are also in process of collecting data and hopefully by next week we will update our lists. If you can wait for a week or two then we will have the list of new models along with some indiciation of their prices. For now it will be difficult to filter based on price as we are still awaiting some more information.

45

Thanks Mr. Abhishek for your needful help. As mentioned earlier about my requirement and availability of stock in our area, i have zeroed on Daikin FTKP 4 star model or Hitachi RSB418AAEA basic model. Let me know the performance and efficiency of these two models and help me to choose between them.

46
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

There is just marginal difference in energy efficiency of the two models. Daikin FTKP is 4.15 and Waza 4200i is 4.2. Cooling capacities are also close. Both are top premium brands. Daikin has come up with a newer FTKP model in 2018 (FTKP50TV16U) ... If you are going for that one then it is more feature rich in terms of filters, etc. You can go for anyone of them. Both are good.

47

Hi Abhishek, i am looking for 1 ton Inverter best energy efficient for long term use. very very very confused between 2 models please suggest JTKM35, Bluestar DAFU series & Godrej GODREJ-GSC 12 FIXH 7 GGPG.

or should i wait for 1 more month for best models as i saw your comments below that new models will be arriving. just doesnt want to miss best deal if something is upcoming after buying new one. i hope you understand

48
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ravi,

I guess not even a month but in 15 more days you should get more models in market. Daikin has already updated its list online, same goes for Voltas and LG. We are currently in process of gathering data and we should update the list above in a week or so. Daikin has released a new model JTKJ35TV16U which has EER of 5.8 and Godrej has new model GIC 12 BAH 8 GGQG which has EER of 6.15 which is highest ever seen in India. Godrej uses R290 which is greenest refrigerant, however the flip side is that copper tubes that can handle R290 are not being made in India currently, so till now Godrej was using Aluminium condenser for the same. The specs of GIC 12 BAH 8 GGQG are not out yet, so I a just waiting to see if it has copper or aluminium. Daikin and Blue Star models (those ending with U in bluestar) are copper. Daikin has few models that have corrosion protection while Bluestar claims corrosion protection for all of its models. Voltas also has a new model 125V ZZS1 which has ISEER of 5.5, but again it has PFC Aluminium condenser. It can work great if you are not in a very corrosive environment.

49

Hello sir ,
I am planning to buy 3 star inverter ac as my usage would be around 8 hrs a day and that too for 6 months..i have finalised some models from bluestar.. 3cnhw18cafu(2015 model), 3cnhw18nafu(2016 model), 3cnhw18tafu (2017 model)......but problem is that i am not finding any reviews for 3cnhw18nafu and 3cnhw18tafu model and reviews for 3cnhw18cafu are good.....so can i go for 3cnhw18tafu (2017 model) as it is the latest model.....are bluestar inverter ac good?...can you suggest me any other better inverter ac from other brands?

50
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Blue star is a great brand and its inverter ACs are quite good. You can certainly go with 3cnhw18tafu. It is a 2017 model. If you can wait for a few more days then most brands come up with new models by Feb end - March. Daikin has already updated its list online and same is with Voltas.

51

I note that star rating are going to be downgraded by 2 points. (5 star in 17 to 3 star in 2018).
The wattage and amps etc. are going to be possibly same. So what is the degradation impact? Are 5 star rated ac's expected to be more power efficient in 2018. Would appreciate Clarification. Also how do you rate Voltas 185MYD , which is being offered with 5 yrs extended warranty. I note R12, less air flow higher noise EER 3.31 but Amps are 6.8 comparable with many other AC's. Initial price looks good and say after 5 yrs newer technology could evolve.

Thks for Your assistance.
JCR

52
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi JCR,

Star ratings are getting degreaded for "Non Inverter" Air conditioners because they are not as energy saving as Inverter Air Conditioners. In 2017 the star ratings of non inverter and inverter ACs were different and they are getting merged in 2018. So BEE 5 star rated non inverter in 2017 will be BEE 3 star in 2018.

In 2017 a non inverter model with EER between 2.7 and 2.9 was 1 star, 2.9 and 3.1 was 2 star, 3.1 and 3.3 was 3 star, 3.3 and 3.5 was 4 star and above 3.5 was 5 star. And for inverter ACs it was 3.1 to 3.3 for 1 star, 3.3 to 3.5 or 2 star, 3.5 to 4 for 3 star, 4 to 4.5 for 4 star and 4.5 and above for 5 star.

Now the standards for inverter ACs is applicable for non inverter ACs as well.

With introduction of inverter ACs, wattage and amps are not a good indicator of energy efficiency as inverter ACs vary their wattage and amp depending on the need of the room. Since last year BEE has started rating ACs on annual electricity consumption (and ISEER). So a 5 star in 2018 will mostly be inverter Ac and it will certainly consume much less electricity as compared to BEE 5 star non inverter in 2017.

I would not suggest you to go for AC with EER of 3.31 because as per latest standards it will be borderline BEE 2 star rated AC (almost BEE 1 star).

Hello,
Thank you Mr. Abhishek for clarification. I guess I will have to opt for something like LG inverter AC (which has a 5 star rating.
Thanks once again

Dear Sir.
KIndly guide for purcahsing a a/c
I am From Alappuzha (kerala) .Bit Humid area close to river
Room size - height-10,width-10.5,length-12., With people of 3
The room in which i am planning to fix the a/c gets direct sunlight since afternoon (west side).its a new construction so not many trees available in my area.
As per calculator i should look for 1.5 ton
So 1.5 ton 4 star will do??? if yes pls suggest some brands and with the models.
How is micro max a/c
which is better option cooper/aluminum
KIndly help me My budget is under 35000/-

Hi Abhilash,

I think your room's requirement would be about 1.2 tons of cooling. I think even a 1 or 1.2 ton inverter AC would be good for you. You may not need a 1.5 ton AC. In general if you are in a corrosive environment (close to sea, river, water body or any chemical factory or nalla) it is better to go for copper. In your case a copper condenser would be better. You can look at these:

Dear Mr Abhishek,

I have ordered a 1.5 ton ,5 star (2017),Godrej split A C, copper condenser,GSC 18 USZ 5 WPR, white.Room size is 11 x 14 ft approx. Am staying at Secunderabad. 3 sides of bedroom walls is connected to other rooms, so no direct sunlight from them. But, one side of 4" wall with window is open to direct sunlight from 1.00 pm to approx 5.30 pm.

Use would be approx 9 hours/per day in summers only, for say 4 months. In summer, on few occassions, there is a bit of low voltage, and at times no power too.

Do I need a voltage stabilizer for this model ? If yes, which stabilizer would you recommend ?
Also, can one connect the copper tube from outdoor unit to indoor unit for a length of say 30 feet ? Any problem in this ?

Would appreciate an early reply, as the item is expected in a day or two.

Thank You,
shapoor bomanjee

57

Thanks for your suggestion, Mr Jain.
One more point is that while making electrical arrangement for the a c, the electrician fixed a Anchor brand
MINI MCB (Uno) MODULAR 3 kA/SP, single Pole (1P), Ue240V-50Hz switch.
Other information on the switch box states that :
Breaking Capacity 3000A
Low Watt Loss
IP-20 Protection,
Protection against over load and short circuit,
Use for per point protection.
The electrician said that with this switch, there is no need for any stabiliser, as the switch gets automatically switch OFF when voltage falls upto 170v and upto 270v.
So, kindly give your advice considering the above points.
Thanks once again for an early reply.

shapoor bomanjee

58
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

This provides protection against overload and short circuit. No mcb protects or senses over and under voltage. Mini mcb is basically provided at load point and suitable for ac. You need to provide voltage stabilizer for voltage regulation.

59
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Bomanjee,

1.5 ton is the right size for your room. So the model sounds good. This is a non-inverter stabilizer, so it does need a voltage stabilizer.

Selection of voltage stabilizer depends on how low the voltage drops in your area. You can check V-Guard VG 500 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2nkm0Y9 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/20reDKNNNN ) which can handle 170-270V input. If the voltage goes lower than 170, then you will have to go for a different one.

Also longer the connecting pipe, lower is the efficiency of the AC. It does increase electricity consumption. You will also need more gas in the AC to maintain the right pressure. It is always better to have the units as close as possible.

Hi Abhishek,

This Vara, Number of interation with other AC experts here i am desided one Brand that is LLOYD.

You can look at Lloyd LS19A3FF-O or LS19A3GR if you are looking for BEE 3 star rated non inverter AC. Inverter ACs are certainly better but they will be much more expensive as compared to these. You can check the annual electricity units consumption using the calculator itself. Typically a BEE 3 star rated 1.5 ton AC from Lloyd will consume 1520 units of electricity for a usage of 1600 hrs.

Hi Sir,

It is really great site.It helped me to decide how much ton of AC i needed as showroom sales person always try to sale higher ton ACs.I just confused on AC brand & AC type.My requirment is
1.AC for my bedroom 140 SQFT(only morning sunlight till 11 AM,in Pune location)
2.Usage is 5 months ,12 hours daily
Please can you advise on whether i should go for invertor AC or non invertor AC & 5 star or 3 star.If possible please could you suggest best brand & model as well with less issues & good after sales service.Thank You.

Hi Shashank,

A 1 ton AC would be good enough for you as the room does not get too much sunlight. As per 2018 standards both BEE, 5-star non-inverter and BEE 3 star inverter will be BEE 3 star because the ratings have been combined. You will get more inverter ACs in BEE 3 star rating with slightly higher efficiency as compared to non-inverter. Inverter ones will also be a bit more expensive just because of inverter technology. Inverter ones will be more comfortable as compared to non-inverter ones and slightly more energy saving. I would suggest that you go for a BEE 3 star rated inverter AC for your room. What is your budget for the AC?

69

I want to buy hot and cold 1.5 and 2 ton split ACs preferably Hitachi or Carrier. Pl suggest.

70
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hitachi does not have Hot and Cold models. Even in Carrier there is only one: Superia 365 Inverter ... and it is a good model. You can go for it.

71

Hi Abhishek,
When i advise people to use Godrej model --Godrej GSC 18 FG 8 MOG--- as it has the best EER 3.9.
They answer that it has R-290 refrigerant which is highly inflammable in case there is a leak.
Tell me what do i tell them. Thanking you in advance. Best Regards , P.K. Mitra

72
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Prabal,

People keep LPG cylinders in their house without any fear, they also install gas geysers, so I do not think they should have problems with R-290. In fact in future everyone will have to move to R-290 (or such HC or hydrocarbon refrigerant as India is planning to put a plan to phase out HFCs like R-410A and R-32 as well). Worldwide HFCs are almost out and HCs have replaced them.

73

Thanks a lot, Abhishek. I will show people your point of view.That should ward off some fear at least. Also in future, as I can see there will be no other options, one will be compelled to use R-290.

74

Hi Abhishek,

According to calculator it showed 1 ton ac suitable for my room. So i have decided to buy lg inverter ac. There is low voltage problem in my town like 170 or 180volt and sometime even 160volt. Most of the time it will be at 175 to 185 volt (day time). My question is will inverter ac run at low voltage?
(as mentioned above)? Is v guard vwi 400 stabilizer a booster stabilizer? Will it step up voltage if input is 170 or 180 volt? Or else please suggest me a good booster stabilizer for inverter ac..

75
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

LG inverter ACs have large operating voltage range. Usually, they operate well between 145-290V and so you will not need a voltage stabilizer if your voltage does not go below 145. Also, inverter ACs do not get damaged at low voltages and so the only reason you may need a stabilizer would be to keep it running even if the voltage is lower than 145. Also in such case, you will have to go for a stabilizer that can handle voltages lower than 145 (as the AC can easily work between 145 and 290V). If your voltage does not go below 160, then you do not need a stabilizer.

76

What is your opinion about Haier Split AC's, specifically there Inverter series.

77

Dear Abhishek,
Please advise if out of below two 1.5 ton split Ac models which is good as I am planning to buy same from Flipkart.
1.Carrier 18k cyclojet 1.5 ton ac 5star
2.Carrier 18k ester pro 1.5 ton Ac 5star
Secondly if your better suggestion please advise as I m looking for 1.5 ton split non inverter Ac with 5 star rating below 40k.

78
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

What is the exact series name for "Carrier 18k cyclojet 1.5 ton ac 5star"? They have multiple models with a cyclojet condenser. Which series are you looking at? In general Carrier is a great brand.

79

Dear Sir,
Sorry for not providing same. Below is the link of the two models I am talking about.

2. Carrier 1.5 Ton 5 Star 18K Ester Pro Split AC White(model not found) available at 33,999 at Flipkart. Please advise if same is good or should I go for some other models from same or other brands.
Appreciate your guidance.
Mathew

80
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Both the models that you are looking at are Carrier Ester 5 star. The efficiency is the same, the only difference is that one has cyclojet condenser and the other one has regular condenser. Carrier has come up with cyclojet condensers in 2017 and they are being marketed as better than regular condenser. Truly, from an efficiency point of view, it does not make a whole lot of difference. I think you can go for the repular Ester Pro model as well.

Also, I think Carrier Superia model is a better model, but it is sold out on flipkart: http://fkrt.it/Lns0gLuuuN

You can also check Hitachi RAU518KWD (which is more energy efficient and will fit in your budget) (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/2K!rV2NNNN ).

81
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Haier is one of the leading brands from China and is quite popular worldwide. They make good products and their ACs are good. You can certainly go for them.

82

Hi Abhishek,
Need your expert advice on Daikan 1.8 Ton AC for a living room (~250 sqft) with several doors. As you are aware of Bhilai climate :), can you advise will it be worth spending 10-15k additional for inverter tech considering it will be used for 4 months per year, 5hrs each day for 2-3 people in the room. Also if you can suggest any other brand or model, as I am not seeing any local dealer who has Mitsubishi etc here and not interested in purchasing online.
Thanks,
Samarth

83
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Samarth,

Great to see your message :)? How are you doing? and yes I am aware of Bhilai Climate :) .... however, things have changed a lot in Bhilai in all these years.

Tariff in Chattisgarh is quite low in general as it is a power surplus state. That is why any energy efficiency measure, in general, finds it difficult to achieve ROI. So if your usage is less and you are looking for an energy efficient model purely to save money, then it will be difficult to achieve the objective.

I think 1.8 ton AC would be a bit small for 250 sq ft room in Bhilai as it does get hot in Bhilai in peak Summers. As per my calculations, it comes to about 2.2-2.3 tons of cooling requirements. However, 1.8 ton will surely make it comfortable (most of the room and most of the time), but there will be some pockets of hot air farthest away from the reach of the air conditioner during peak summers. You can place it close to the seating area or the bed (in case you plan to put it in the bedroom).

Daikin is a great brand and you can certainly go for Daikin 1.8 ton AC. I would still suggest BEE 5 star rated non-inverter AC because as per updated star ratings in 2018, old BEE 5 star non-inverter will become BEE 3 star (as BEE ratings of non-inverter and inverter are being merged). So a Daikin FTF60 would be a good buy. FTF is a BEE 5 star series (up to 1.5 ton) but becomes 4 star for 1.8 ton. So as per new standards, it will be BEE 2 star. But still, it has good efficiency. You may even look at models from Carrier (Superia 5 star) or Panasonic SC24SKY5 which are quite good and I think will not be too expensive.

84

I am doing good Abhishek and thank you so much on the quick and to the point response. Will look for 5 star ac. You are my hero! Thx again

85

Dear Abhishek Ji,
I lives near Aligarh, UP. I need an AC of 1 to 1.2 Ton, Inverter AC with Hot & cold feature. Usage: 10-12 Hours per day for 8 months. My budget is upto 40000/-. which is the best INDIAN brand AC available in market (Online / Offline).

86
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Lalit Ji,

If you want a good hot and cold inverter AC in Indian brand then I would suggest that you go for Bluestar. HNHW12CBF would be a good model. I doubt that it is available online but you can get it offline. It is a 1-ton model and should cost about 40K.

87

Hi Abhishek..i need non inverter AC model vth copper condenser as my room space is small and usage is also less. confused vth these options Abhi....Voltas 1ton vth 5star and voltas 1.5ton vth 3star.pl suggest one of these...which is better ?....power consumption etc...

88
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

It is very important to find the right size of AC for your room. I would suggest that you use the calculator on this page to do so. If the room is really small then better to go for 1 ton with 5 star. 1.5 ton is big and would be inefficient.

89

Hello Abhishek,

Need help!

I would like to buy 1.5 Ton most power-saving ac, can you suggest some good model my budget is 40 to 65 K. Thanks.,

90
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Nirav,

You can look at these:

Daikin JTKM50
Hitachi Kashikoi 5400i

Currently these are the most power saving 1.5 ton ACs. However, if you can wait for a few months, you will see lot more models coming in. I can already see some models that these manufacturers have got listed with BEE but not yet released in the market that are more efficient than these two. Usually brands bring in a lot of new models by feb/mar every year.

91

Dear Mr Jain,

I have decided to buy the Mitashi SACHINv18K500 model.
Pl let me know if I need a voltage stabilizer for this model. In my area, surge is not much, but many times in summer, power fails, and some times there is low voltage. Also if modern stabilizers come with surge are available. Can I use it with 5 amps socket? What is the voltage range of this inverter model

Regards.

92
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

As per Mitashi,operating voltage range of this AC is 220-240 V. If you want to run it at lower voltages, you can use VGuard VND 400 voltage stabilizer.

93
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Most ACs work on 15 amp plug. They cannot work on 5 amp. Inverter ACs do not need stabilizer for protection.

94

Respected Sir,
The following are my requirements/details, it would be appreciated if you can help me select the best AC.
1. Bedroom: 10.45 ft * 8 ft = 83.6 square feet.
2. Non-Inverter, 1ton, 5star AC.
3. Condenser Coil Material: Copper, would be good if it is anti-corrosive.
4. AC should (at least) have anti-dust, anti-bacterial filter; sleep mode, turbo mode; auto-restart.
5. Noise level: i.) Indoor unit - Preferably low noise (i guess <40dB?) at high.
ii.) Outdoor unit - Doesn't matter.
5. Budget: 35-40k.
Thanks in advance.
Pranav Patil.

95
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Pranav,

I hope you have done the calculation using the calculator given above on this page. This is because right size (tonnage) of AC also depends on city (as climates vary). Also as part of our data collection, we do not capture too many things as in the modes that are available or noise level. So it will be difficult for me to filter out products based on your criterion. However, I think Bluestar, Carrier or Panasonic would be good brands that may fit your requirements. They all have copper condenser BEE 5 star rated models with good air filters. Personally having used Panasonic, I can comfortably say that their noise level is quite low. You can check these that are available online:

Thanks a lot sir, I live in Pune city. My dad thinks that we should buy a heating + cooling AC because of the climate here. I did the calculation using the calculator given above and it said:-
Size of Air Conditioner that you need:
0.75 Ton (For cooling requirement of 0.6 Ton)
So now I have to reconsider my buying options. Can you suggest a good cooling plus heating 0.75 ton 3 or 5 star inverter/non-inverter AC? (I assumed that because of cooling + heating requirement, the options are less than before, so I have to consider inverter ACs as well). In a normal (cooling only) split AC, what is the maximum temperature that I can set? My requirement is that in winter I need the AC to maintain about 32 degree Celsius. If this is fulfilled by a normal AC, then I would not need a cooling + heating AC.
Thanks again!

97
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Pranav,

A normal AC cannot heat the room. If it is cold and you set the AC to 32, it will not heat the room. You need heating+cooling for it. You can get good inverter heat pump models in Daikin (FTXS would be 0.75 ton and FTHP would be 1 ton), or Mitsubishi Electric or even in Carrier (Superia 365 1 ton inverter AC). Inverter AC would be better for you as your room size is small. Also because heat pumps tend to be inefficient (in electricity consumption) a compared to a normal cooling only AC, it is better to go for one with inverter for hot and cold. What is your budget for this AC? Because Daikin or ME would be expensive, Carrier may still turn out to be reasonable.

98

I am from Secunderabad. Had purchased an daikin a c on your advice in Sept 2017, it's working fine.
Now, I need an a c for another bedroom of size 12 ft x 15 ft, 1st floor, in a three story building, which is getting direct sunlight from 12.30 p m to about 5.30 p m.. The 12 ft wall getting this direct sunlight is made of jalli and concrete and the thickness is of 4" ( no bricks). Summer evenings, this wall gets quite hot, other three walls are all indoors and quite cool, also attached to neighbours wall.
After going through various brands and budgets, I feel that HITACHI HS4154, GCO-CM Slpit INVERTOR ( 1.5 ton, 3 star) rating, white , COPPER. is suitable. My budget is Rs 33,000/-.
This a c MRP is Rs 36,500/-, but om Amazon it is available for Rs 29,500/-. OR, can you suggest any other a c within my budget. My usage would be about 8 hours per day for about 4 months of summer. What voltage fluctuations can this model handle, as not much fluctuations take place in our area, and power goes off sometimes. Is surge guard required . Would be obliged for your advice and help. Thank you.

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mrs Dastoor,

You calculation of 1.5 ton inverter AC is correct. A BEE 3 star rated inverter AC would work great for your usage. There are 3 new brands of Air Conditioners that have created quite a buzz on e-commerce platforms: Hyundai, Sansui and Mitashi. Specs wise all look really good. Their energy efficiency levels are good, all have copper condenser. However, as I said, they are quite new. Inital user feedback for all these brands is really good (you can get a lot of data on flipkart). They all cost around 30K. However, their durability will be tested with time and if they are good, they will come out big in future. For now, they are e-commerce wonders based on initial feedback. You can look at all 3:

Sansui SS4C54.WS1-CM (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/P6gKdTuuuN ) ... More and better user feedback and in your budget.
Mitashi MiSAC15INv20 (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/~GH2r!NNNN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2kX0wiG )
Hyundai HS4I54.GCO-CM (Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/P66ibTuuuN , Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2zemD9u )

You can also get brands like Onida and Intex in your budget. Or even LG Aluminium models. But these have good specs.

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I replied to you yesterday and it should be there in your email (may be in SPAM box). Still here is the reply again:

Hi Nishant,

My guess is that your cooling requirement would be about 1.2 ton (you can use the calculator on this page to confirm the same). So if you are planning to go for 1.5 ton, then I think inverter AC woudl be a better option. Usually choice of star rating depends on annual usage (in hrs). However, in most cases for home 3 star inverter AC is good unless your usage is more than 2000 hrs a year in Gujarat. IFB as a brand is quite popular for washing machines, but it is not much known for Air Conditioners. Their market share in ACs is quite less.

Titanium Gold in IFB is just a coating that is used for Fins in the evaporator. This is just like Hydrophillic Blue Fins. It helps keep moisture (or water) away from fins and thus helps in protecting the fins and yes slightly better efficiency. But then most brands have Blue Fins in the evaporator (indoor unit). Even Daikin, Hitachi, General and Carrier will have it. So I do not think that this particular technology gives it an edge over others. You can look at these BEE 3 star inverter ACs:

Wether to choose a 5 star or 3 star (Inveter / Non-Inveter).
Diakin being my 1st choice, but now concerned when locally inquired at Rajkot (Gujarat) got down graded reviews comparing quality before 3-5 years.
Also if you could kindly tell me more about the IFB rating, specially their TITANIUM GOLD Fast Cooling technology (PATENTED BY IFB AS THEY SAY).

It includes electricity tariff and would suggest you operating costs based on your usage. As for 43 inch under 40K, you can check models from Sanyo, Vu or Micromax. These are good brands and are not expensive.

Hi Abhishek,

I am from Jaipur and looking to buy 2T - 2 nos. & 1.5T-6 nos. inverter 5 star ac. I reside in an apartment (facing SW) with 10 floors above mine.

Have shortlisted the following for 1.5T (usage - Variable) :
Daikin - JTKM50SRV16; Hitachi - RSA518CAEA; Mitsubishi - SRK18YL-s; IFB - IACS18JCHTGC; Godrej - GSC18GIG5DGOG
Kindly advice which will give me best after sale services and any other make/model u suggest.

Pls advice make/model for 2T AC

Usage:
1st unit - 18hrs/day x 9 mths
2nd unit - 8hrs/day x 8 mths (must be Hot & Cold)

Thxs

But please note, Mitsubishi Heavy is a very expensive brand. They have fantastic products but are very expensive.

Hi,

In 2 ton category, there are very few BEE 5 star rated models in BEE database. Please note, a whole lot of models that sell as 2 ton are actually 1.8 ton. And I am talking about true 2 ton ACs. And I hope you have used the calculator on this page to get the right tonnage. If you are looking for 2 Ton then you can look at these:

Mitsubishi Electric MSY-GK24VA (Amazon link: http://amzn.to/2uPvwc6 ) ... 1.9 ton model
Hitachi RMA524CAEA ... 2 ton model.

Else you can also look at 2.2 ton models:

Mitsubishi Electric MSY-GN26VF-D1

For hot and cold, Daikin FTXS 2.2 ton is a good model. The same series has 1.8 ton as well. Daikin FTHP is BEE 4 star rated 1.8 ton model as well. For the 2nd room FTHP will also be good enough.

For 1.5 ton Daikin JTKM is the most energy efficient model and even Hitachi 18CAEA would be quite close (as per BEE data). But if we go by company claims (because the models is not rated on BEE ratings as it is not mandatory for inverter ACs), then Mitsubishi – SRK18YL-s would be the most energy efficient and highly durable model. If you have good service of Mitsubishi Heavy in your city then this would be a great model.

115

Hi Abhishek,

Thxs for the guidance. really appreciate.

Was looking at the review of Mitsubishi after sale service and unfortunately the number of unsatisfied customers are way way more than satisfied. A cause of concern there.

For the number of 1.5T ac's required is it a better option to go for multi split.
Wanted to go for VRF but unable to accommodate the ODU due to its size.

If multi split is good, pls provide the make/model.

Thxs

116
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

With VRF or Multi-split, the cost of purchase is higher but maintenance is much easier and cheaper. With multiple split ACs, the cost of purchase will be lower but maintenance will be higher and complex. On the whole, it will all depend on the usage and the deal that you get. You can find Multi Split in Daikin, Bluestar and LG. If Mitsubishi after sales service is not good then you can check on the after sales service of other brands like Daikin and Hitachi as well.

117

I have read BEE star & EER efficiency are well explained in detail gives us much knowledge for choosing the right ac also am interested to know which AC from 1 or 1.5 ton gives best range efficient in cooling performance

118
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Higher the tonnage higher is the cooling capacity of the AC. 1 ton is equivalent to 12000 BTU/hr or it can remove 12000 BTUs of heat in an hour. Similarly, 1.5 ton is 18000 BTU/hr. But that does not mean that 1.5 ton is always better than 1 ton. It depends on the heat load of the room where the AC is to be fitted. If a room needs 1 ton and you put a 1.5 ton in it, then it will not be effective in removing humidity and it will also consume more electricity. So one cannot say that 1.5 ton gives the best cooling performance as compared to 1 ton. You need to right-size your AC to get the best efficient cooling performance. And that is why we have put the calculator on this page so that people can calculate the right size while buying an AC.

Hi Abhishek, im running system server machines as like atm machine in 70sq ft room which locate non direct face sun light, im confused to go with 5star r inverter 5star.kindly suggest me best split ac for my requirement which run 24*7*365 (from daikin mitshubshi r hitachi or any other specify )

120
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

For your usage a BEE 5 star rated inverter AC would be better. I think a 1-ton BEE 5-star inverter AC should be good (assuming the server machines will be packed and would be releasing heat). Going for the most efficient one would be the best. I think Mitsubishi Heavy SRK10YYL-S would be the best model. But you may also look at Daikin JTKM35 or Hitachi Kashikoi 5400i as well.

121

as i inquired in showroom they suggested mitshubshi electric inverter 410. 1.5ton wch cost 65k and non inverter 410 1.5 ton cost 50k... kindly suggest suitable match for me from above or specify any other

122
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

BEE 5 star inverter will be better for you.

Hi Abhishek,

Regarding my CARRIER SUPERIA CYCLOJET ac - I was planning to install the cylindrical Outdoor unit at my balcony. But, since the height of the ODU is quite large, it cant be placed above the window - as then it touches the ceiling surface. In that case, i was thinking of installing it in the wall at the level of the window..
But the local technicians are saying that if the ODU is placed at a height below the IDU (which will be the scenario in this case if ODU is fitted at window level) - then the AC compressor performance will be low..

>> 1. Is it true?? And if so, what will be your suggestion/..
>> 2. Moreover, I am against the idea of installing the ODU outside - as:
A. the distance between IDU & ODU will be larger in that case.. B. Since ODU is cyclojet with the top Open - it will be exposed to all the rain water & dust thru the year around. What's your take on that??

124
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Well, it depends on how low is the ODU below the IDU. Certainly, the refrigerant has to go against gravity so some extra effort will be required. But extra will depend on the height difference. If the difference in height is not much then it will not be significantly low performance.

For your 2nd question, I do not have much feedback on the same as Cyclojet is a new product from Carrier and although technically I do not see any challenge with the design, practical issues are not known yet (as the product is new).

Dear Sir,
An ac has to be bought for a super senior citizen aged 85 + in Chembur , a suburb in North Mumbai .
Was confused at going through the Daikin website as they show ac s’ with anti corrosion treatment, different filters 0.1, 2.5pm , anti microbial , silver particle filter varieties
Would you please advise the efficiency rating , durability, cost of each replacement and if these are interchangeable across the various models of same tonnage ?
Thanks

126
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Sir,

Anti Corrosion treatment is an important aspect, but all other filters are like additional features and it truly depends whether you need them or not. They are not necessary to have. Also, I am not sure if they are interchangeable across various models or not and what will be their costs.

As for durability, all Daikin models come with copper. Some of them have anti-corrosion treatment (the models with model number ending with E like JTKP-E) but not all of them have anti-corrosion treatment. The severity of need of anti-corrosion treatment depends on how close you are to the Sea or how corrosive is the environment. I have many friends in Powai who have been using Daikin (regular models) for quite some time without any issues. But if your environment is corrosive, it will be better to go for models with anti-corrosion treatment.

Now to buy an AC, a few things are very important to decide:

1) Tonnage: Extremely important as undersized ACs do not cool the room properly and oversized consume more electricity and make environment uncomfortable by overcooling and are ineffective in removing humidity. I would strongly suggest that you use the calculator on this page to size the AC properly.

2) The efficiency rating or star rating: will depend on your usage of AC. Electricity tariffs in Mumbai are really high and thus we usually recommend going for better efficiency models in Mumbai. Unless your usage is less than 1000 hrs a year in Mumbai, I would strongly suggest you go for an inverter technology air conditioner. If it is close to 2000 hrs, then going for BEE 5 star rated inverter AC would be a must. Else between 1000-2000 hrs a year a BEE 3 star inverter AC would be good.

I would suggest that you check the right size using the calculator and let me know your usage (in hrs per year) and your budget, then I can recommend some models to you.

127

Dear Sir, Kudos to you for compiling such a great website. A suggestion - While trying to list the best ACs under various categories, please also indicate if the AC has a copper or a aluminium condenser. For many customers copper condenser makes lot of sense as it has long life and for some reason an issue crops up; it can be repaired rather than replacing it as in the case of an aluminium condenser. Please carry on the good work.

128
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Prashant,

We did compile a list of copper and aluminium condenser data in association with International Copper Association of India and it is available on this link: https://www.bijlibachao.com/air-conditioners/air-conditioners-copper-coil-vs-aluminium-coil.html

However, the feedback we received was only from a few brands (not all) and even then the data was a bit confusing (mismatch between what is available in the market and what was provided by brands). And then there were missing model numbers. And in general this does not happen like an ongoing process and we get data from ICAI once in a year. And new models keep coming out. So it is a bit challenging to compile the same. But we do try from our side.

129

Hi Abhishek,

As you would have noted in one of my previous post - after discussion with my family - I went for 3 star - since the daily average consumption of my AC would be 5 - 6 hrs only..Thats why I choose 3 star of the carrier model suggested by you..
My query is: apart from being 3 star - my model: CACS18SU3J3 - does it have all the other identical properties as the Carrier superia 5 star ac that u actually suggested??
Plz confirm..

130
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Features are the same in BEE 3 and 5 stars. Only the energy efficiency differ.

131

Moreover, in the net I am getting the some diff technical specifications - some says the model - is Copper condenser / some others say it is Aluminium..Please check & let me know which is the correct one & the URL where I will get the genuine features of the product I received..

132
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

This is the link to the details of model you received: http://www.carriermideaindia.com/superia-3-star.aspx

And this is the one I suggested: http://www.carriermideaindia.com/superia.aspx

133
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

All Carrier models are copper condenser models. Carrier does not sell Aluminium ones.

134

HI Abhishek,

I received my AC today. Model Number is CACS18SU3J3 - But on cover it is written as '18K Superia'.. Is it the same as Superia AC that you advised / it is the wrong model?? Plesae reply ASAP.

135
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

This is a wrong one. This is a BEE 3 star rated model. CACS18SU5J3 is BEE 5 star Carrier Superia. CACS18SU3J3 is BEE 3 star carrier Superia. It should be 5J3 and not 3J3. This will have more electricity consumption.

136

Hi
I need advice on buying an AC for my office. The dimensions are 17ft x 13ft x 10ft. It is located in rajasthan. It is north west facing with total exposure of about 160 sqft to sun. It has high inflow/outflow of customers. Please suggest whether to go for Mitsubishi Heavy - SRK25CSS-S6/A OR HITACHI - RAU524AVD. Or any other

137
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Anirudh,

Difficult to suggest anything. Based on the basic calculation of 4 people in the room the tonnage value that I think is required is 2.5 ton. But then a lot depends on the number of people in the room at any given time because every human releases heat. A 100 sq ft room may need 1-ton cooling without people, but then if you fill 20 people in the room then 1 ton will be grossly insufficient. So a lot depends on the number of people as well. I would say go for 3 ton in total so put two 1.5 ton inverter ACs in the office. And if the office will be packed with people, then you may need more.

138

Hi,
I live in Pune and plan to buy Hot and Cold AC. The room size in 180 sq.ft with ceiling ht: 10ft. The ceiling has a terrace directly above and the room is North East.

Winter usage is estimated for 2 months with 8hours / day consumption. Summer usage will be 2-3 months.

Which is the best AC brand to buy and what tonnage will be best suited for my requirement.

Thanks

139
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I think 1.5 ton AC should be fine for your room, but if you have doubt then at best you can go for a 1.8 ton hot and cold inverter AC. Daikin FTHP50 (1.5 ton) or FTHP60 (1.8 ton) would be great choice if you want hot and cold AC.

140

hi abhishek ,i want to buy 1.5 ton inverter 3 star ac for my living room 18*12 , i am living in Dhule Maharashtra , after reading your blog i have opted for daikin fkth series but service center issue i leave it then i opted for lg Q18NPXA ,bule satar. & panasonic as LG providing 10 years compressor warranty other 2 only for 5 years whereas bule satar. & panasonic providing various air filters , does it really works such as catechin filter vitamin c filter does this increases power consumption or does it have more maintenance ?so im getting bit confused blue star also providing heat mode at a price up to 45k dose it consume too much power or is it really value for money ? or does it have more maintenance? wat abt various air filters used in other than LG
my baisc requirement is 1.5 ton inverter 3 star ac

141
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Here are a few points to note:

1) Filters are just mechanical filters (just like a "channi" in hindi or a tea strainer) .... they do not consume any electricity, they just filter out particles. Filters require cleaning and also have limited life (some of them) and thus they need to be changed regularly (just like if you have a RO water purifier, you need to change its filters). A basic filter does not need frequent changing, only the specialized ones like Vitamin C, etc will need a change after some time to be as effective.

2) All split ACs have basic air filter for removing dust and it is required to clean them every 6 months. So basic cleaning of filter is required for every AC.

3) One should not go for Hot and Cold AC unless there is good enough (2 months or more) of heating requirement. You will be better off with non heating options.

4) LG has some models that have filters from 3M for advanced dust and pollution removal. Some models do not have it. The model you are looking at does not have that filter, but then it still has basic dust filter which is there in all Split ACs.

Filters do work and so make environment better. They need regular cleaning and maintenance (required in every AC even for basic filter). Some advanced filters may need regular change as they may become ineffective after some time.
