Air conditioner is one modern equipment used for cooling the room temperature by lowering the heat and adjusting the room temperature. During prickly summer it is impossible to live without air conditioners. It not only cools the room but also cleans the room as well. AC must be purchased not only depending upon it’s price but also based upon your room size. Switching AC on and off at regular intervals will waste lot of energy. Best Leading Air Conditioner Brands in India – full list is available here.
Nowadays split AC are becoming more popular with it’s sleek exterior, as well as noiseless performance. The AC’s are listed according to their energy capacity, technical facts, functionality and star ratings. AC must be of various types like window-mounted unit, wall-mounted unit, split ductless or mini air systems. The major AC brands are Sharp, Samsung, Hitachi, Voltas, Panasonic, and Godrej, Whirlpool etc. Here i have enlisted some of the leading brands in AC. Choose the right one based on your purpose from the list of models given along with it.
Important Factors Should Consider Before Choosing the AC
You may be in a hurry to buy a new AC for this hot summer, But before going to choose one randomly just know these factors which greatly affect your AC, power and economical aspects. The need for Cooling and power consumption will vary based on different things.
The most important thing is about the “ton”. Before purchase calculates how much ton AC you actually need, it preventing you from buying a costly and heavy ton AC which you actually don’t want.
- You can simply use the formula to calculate the total ton of AC you required, you just need to measure your room in feet (Length x Width x Height) then compare the below given chart and find out how much ton AC you want.
- Total tonnage of AC required = Length (feet) x Breadth (feet) x Height (feet) of room/floor
- Note that never go to showroom and ask opinion about the salesman they will try for selling an AC with huge tons.
- Number and doors in a room or floor is another important to know about the leakage of air
- Products in your room or home like heat generating equipment
- Amount of sunlight exposure to or over the particular area need to be cooled
- AC should save some electricity because that is the most important factor
Choose the Best AC by Understanding the Key Features
It is very difficult to stay indoors without having a cooling measure in this summer. No doubt the perfect and best solution for summer month hotness is buying a best AC. But before going to buy it you have understand some technical specifications in details, which is the key specifications of each and every model.
Also here below we have given tables for each brands top models with full technical spec and pricing. Have a look on the features description and go to the table. Choose the right and best model for your use.
- Total Power Consumption (Watts)
The Total Power Consumption (Watts) of an AC varies from model to model. Simply it is the measurement of power consumed in watts, while working the AC. It depends on various factors. The type of cooling system, frequency of maintenance and the cooling output will alter the Total Power Consumption (Watts).
A central air conditioner uses more power than the room air conditioners. Normally we can say that a normal sized A.C. is rated about 12,000 Btu. This kind of AC uses average of 1500 watts per hour. Either it will be window type of portable type. If you along with fan again the power usage increases.
- Unit Used for measurement : Watts (W), Kilo Watts (kW)
- Cooling Wattage
Cooling Wattage of an AC is expressed based on the Cooling Capacity. The cooling capacity of an air conditioner is the total Amount Of Cooling Produced By The AC. It is expressed in Units of TR, Btu/hr, kCal/hr, Watts.
For you r understanding 1TR = 12,000 Btu/hr = 3,024 kCal/hr = 3,514 Watts. As the cooling capacity is higher, the heat from room is removed soon. So always choose the AC with high cooling capacity if are living in hot climate most of the season.
- Star Rating (BEE)
The Star Rating (BEE) is used to rate the room AC. The rating is given based on the basis of the energy efficiency of each air conditioner. It is measures on a scale of 1 to 5 stars based on certain calculations. Simply higher the number of stars and higher the Star Rating (BEE), you can save energy as it is highly energy efficient.
So even the price is a little high for the AC with high star rating you can save a lot in future by cost reduction on working. Try to get a five star rated AC for your home or office.
- Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER)
The Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) in case of air conditioner is the ratio of the cooling capacity of an air conditioner to the total electrical input (in watts). The cooling capacity is expressed in British Thermal Units (BTU) per hour.
Those with EER rating of 10 and considered the high class and most effective AC. Keep in mind that as much as the higher the EER ratio the cost of operating will be less, at the same time the price f AC will be little high comparing to the standard one.
- EER= Cooling Capacity (Watt)
/ Power Consumption (Watt)
What is the difference between Normal Split AC and Inverter Split AC
- Inverter Split AC:
The latest Inverter air conditioners are equipped with advance technology, so that it is more economical to operate and offers good output while running than conventional unit. These are specially made to manage extremes in temperature, features a smooth and stable operational facility.
While working it reaches the cooling effect more easier and quicker than the Normal Split AC. Enjoy maximum comfort with No temperature fluctuations, No voltage peaks, Much quieter working and less start up time.
- Normal Split AC:
The Normal Split AC without inverter may be cheaper than the Inverter Split AC but energy cost will be high in case of Normal Split AC usage. The greater disadvantage is it consumes more power and not much economical to run in this summer, when using more hours.
There is a difference in achieving desired temperature for normal split AC than the Inverter Split AC. The start up time is more for these kind of AC. It makes some noise on working and little slower. Temperature fluctuations and voltage peaks more in case of normal non inverter type.
