How to choose a best inverter split ac in india?

To select a best inverter split AC in India, you should know some basic terms that are used when choosing a good AC.

Star ratings

A star rating system shows the energy efficiency of an electrical device. The higher the number of stars, the more efficient it is. The star rating system was designed by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) India, with a range of 1 to 5 stars. This system ensured that a common man could easily understand and compare the energy efficiency of an electrical device.

Simply star rating calculated by EER (Energy efficiency ratio), the ratio between Output Wattage (or cooling capacity) to Input Wattage(or power consumption). But it can only be calculated if the compressor speed is constant. Therefore this method cannot be applied in inverter AC, where the compressor speed is varied. 

So to calculate the star rating of inverter Ac BEE introduced a new ratio called Indian Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (ISEER), which is the ratio between, the total cooling load (amount of heat removed) to the total amount of energy consumed by the air conditioner.

Star Rating Band Valid from 01 Jan 2018 to 31 December 2019

 

                                                                  ISEER

Star rating

Maximum

Minimum

1 Star

3.10

3.29

2 Star

3.30

3.49

3 Star

3.50

3.99

4 Star

4.00

4.99

5 Star

4.50

 

As the energy consumption is directly proportional to the ISEER value, i strongly recommend to follow the ISEER value also. You can get an idea by this simple calculation. 

A 1 ton inverter AC having ISEER value 3.7 can consume approximately 742 units per year if run for 1600hr.

Tonnage

Ton is the cooling capacity of an AC. The ton is the amount of heat that the air conditioner removes from your room in one hour. The mathematical unit of ton is BTU (British Thermal Units). 1 ton equals 12000 BTU.  I.e a one ton Ac will remove 12000 BTU of heat in one hour from your room.

You can simply compare 1 ton AC with 1 ton ice i.e one ton AC can provide cold like one-ton ice in one hr.

Things to consider while selecting a best AC

Here are some parameters that you should consider while buying.

Size

Choosing the right size AC for your room is very important for efficient cooling.

You should choose an AC according to your room size, room location and environment condition.

You should definitely choose a large Ac for a large room and small one for a small room.

Here is a size chart that you can consider your room

 

Room size

Required AC size

0 to 80 Sq Ft

0.75 tons

80 to 120 Sq Ft

1 ton

120 to 190 Sq Ft

1.5 ton

190 to 300 Sq Ft

2 ton

Again room location and environment condition is very important to choose a perfect AC. If your room on the top flour and your atmosphere temperature goes up to 50 then you should go for a large one i.e minimum 1.5 ton.

Star rating.

Mostly 3 star and 5 star Ac available nowadays. If you use your AC for 10 to 12hr per day, then you should choose a 5 star AC. It will significantly reduce your electric bill unless you can buy a 3 star AC.

Build quality

Build quality is directly proportional to longevity. A major problem of air conditioners is gas pipe or coil leakage. So the coil must be made of pure copper so that they can handle high pressure, prevent corrosion and transfer heat rapidly.

Now some air conditioners are coming with grooved copper coil and hydrophilic blue fins to stand in moisture and salty environments like coastal areas.

Refrigerant

There are a lot of refrigerants used in air conditioners. Like R600A / R290/ R32 / R410A/ R 22. I strongly recommend buying the R32 Refrigerant AC as it is environmentally friendly. It has zero ozone depletion and less global warming potential. You may choose R410 for cost reduction but it has high global warming potential.

Features

The AC should have all the necessary features like instant cool, eco mode, Auto Restart, Dust filter, timer, and remote display backlight.

Lot of AC’s comes with self-diagnosis, auto blower, 6th sense technology, etc, which gives an additional benefit to these
