Electricity Saving Tips For Homes And Offices

Top Ten Air Conditioners in India by electricity consumption and size in 2015

By on June 5, 2015

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.

Top Ten AC
  • The basis of this ranking is the data from BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) for the fixed speed air conditioners. For Inverter Technology air conditioners the data is from manufacturers’ websites. BEE data contains cooling capacity, power consumption and their ratio (also called as energy efficiency ratio) and this information is self reported by the manufacturers. The values are calculated under test conditions.
  • We have taken the data on electricity consumption (energy efficiency ratio) and categorized it by the capacity or tonnage of the air conditioner. The air conditioner with the highest value of EER 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 below contains only the top ten ranked air conditioners. List of all BEE star rated air conditioners are available on the useful links given below.
  • Window and Split air conditioners have been listed as separate categories.
  • We regularly update this list as new models get added in the BEE list of air conditioners.

We recommend people to go for BEE 3 star split AC if usage is less than 1000 hrs per year and price of electricity less than Rs 5 a unit. If usage is between 1000-1500 hrs per year, then we suggest going for BEE 5 star split and beyond that Inverter Tech split AC. This is for 3 years payback for the extra money you pay to buy the appliance.

Dear BB Team,

First, I would like to thank you for your prompt reply. My question is in continuation to my previous query. Some people (ac salesman) told me that inverter split ac is not viable for home use & it is more beneficial when used commercially. Further with regard to star rating some salesman (ac salesman) told me that star rating does not have much importance & 3 star rating is more than enough for home use. I am totally confused; I need your valuable suggestion, please.

Hi sir,
I have bought Daikin 1.5 ton inverter ac ATKP50QRV16 .it cools the room till the room temperature becomes the set temperature say 24 C.but after that there is no cooling effect and the room temperature raises to 28 or 30 C but does not come back to 25 C. How can I confirm if there is a defect with this product.l bought inverter thinking that a constant cooling (24 C) would be maintained.

Any reviews about Whirlpool Magicool DLX III? Is it good for long term usage? My usage would be between 5-6 hours per day.

My room’s dimensions are 22 feet by 9 feet by 10 feet without false ceiling
Ground floor ,the room is sheltered from all sides , location Kanpur UP
usage of around 1000 to 1500 hours per year electricity price is around rs 5 per unit. I need your expert opinion to arrive at a buying decision asap.
also keep in mind affordability and service centre availability and the chance of lesser maintenance and savings on electricity.
