The Ultimate Air Conditioner Hunting Checklist
Imagine you are enjoying your summer afternoon
with an iced coffee or maybe a glass of chilled orange juice in a chilled room.
You are vibing on your new playlist while working on your new project.
Suddenly, all the ACs in your house disappear and it’s 40 degrees Celsius
inside your room. Your iced coffee is now a hot filter coffee, you are drowning
in sweat and melting away.
You snap out of your dream and wake up, turn on your air conditioner and go back to your blissful sleep. Living without air conditioners has become passé, it is not a luxury anymore. In fact, air conditioners have become a necessity. As one might see in most parts of India during the summer months of May, June and July, we cannot possibly fathom getting through them without an AC. The average temperature on a summer day peaks up to 40 degrees Celsius, and sometimes it goes so high, you do not want to step outside your homes.
But staying in homes isn’t much of a respite either, is it? It feels stuffy, sticky and sweaty. So how do you deal with the sultry weather? Well, with technology upgrading itself with every passing day, we were blessed with Inverter Air Conditioners.
Buying Air Conditioners Online
Yes, we know everyone knows about air
conditioners being available for purchase online. Yet, when it comes to buying
one, we are almost always in a fix. With the market brimming with so many
options for inverter air conditioners, it is difficult to pick from brands,
capacities, features, aesthetics and so much more.
How do you pick one that is the best for you
and your house? It’s a one-time investment and so much thought goes into it, so
you need to research well and compare different models and brands.
Here are a few questions you can answer for yourself
before you start looking:
- What is the size of your room?
- What is the temperature and
environment of the place you live in?
- How often do you use your AC?
- What are your budget restrictions?
- What other features are you
Once you have answered these questions, you
automatically have a fair idea of the kind of AC you are looking for. This
helps narrow down options.
Inverter Air Conditioners
There are different kinds of air conditioners
based on how they function. Inverter air conditioners use a technology that
controls airspeed to reduce the amount of energy used by the air conditioner.
Normal air conditioners cycle on and off to
maintain temperature, interrupting the cycle and wasting electricity. Inverter
air conditioners, on the other hand, do away with the need for this by altering
the motor speed. You must evaluate the different types so you know which one
will be ideal for your home.
Features To Consider While Buying ACs
- Air Filters: Filters for
dust and contaminants would be included in a good air conditioner.
Dehumidifiers are installed in air conditioning units since humidity
lowers air quality. Considering that humans inhale air that has been
circulated for a lengthy period of time in an enclosed space, it is vital
to examine the filter for air quality.
- Capacity: The capacity of
air conditioners, measured in
tonnes, is yet another important factor for consideration. For a space of
130 square feet or less, a 1 tonne split AC would suffice; anything greater will
necessitate a 1.2 or 1.5 tonne split 3-star air conditioner.
- Cooling Speed: For faster
AC cooling, you'll need a programmed thermostat and many fans. The ability
to modify the speed of most air conditioners via multiple modes makes the
process simpler and more efficient. The less electricity an air
conditioner consumes, the faster it can cool.
- Energy Efficiency: It is
critical to get an energy-efficient air conditioner to avoid unnecessary
power costs. The more stars there are, the less energy is used, and thus
the price is cheaper. A 3 or 5-star air conditioner is considered ideal,
with a 5-star rating resulting in a cheaper bill.
- Installation and Maintenance: As with any piece of equipment, it's important to ensure AC installation
and maintenance are required to keep it running smoothly. This covers the
brand's customer service as well. The AC may not work if all the
components are not properly installed, therefore it must be installed by
an authorised dealer.
- No-noise ACs: Earlier, AC’s
used to produce a lot of noise while functioning due to the technology
used to filter air. However, no one wants buzzing noise annoying them when
they are trying to relax or when they are sleeping at night. No-noise
