As most parts of India are about to witness peak summers, buying an air conditioner seems like the top most priority for most people across the country. Also, with the likes of Intex, Micromax and other relatively newer brands venturing into the white goods segment, buyers are spoilt for choice, especially in the affordable range.
As far as the capacity (or tonnage) of ACs are concerned, it is always better to opt for a minimum of 1.5 Ton model, given the summers in our country. While Split AC models cost more than Window AC units, they are usually preferred as they look good, make less noise and don’t occupy any window in the room.
Talking about power bills, there is general belief that inverter ACs provide more power saving compared to the traditional fixed fan speed models. However, the initial cost of ownership of inverter ACs is greater. Also, note that servicing of inverter ACs costs more due to its parts being more expensive than normal ACs.
This means a 2017 model of 5 star non-inverter split AC will become 3 star in 2018.
E-commerce giant Amazon has just announced its ‘Summer Sale’ between May 13 and 16. The four-day sale is offering deals and discounts across a wide range of categories including white goods.
