Top 3 Best AC in India (Air Conditioners) [Updated 2020]

When you search for the best ac in India 2020 (air conditioners).

Did you know that these AC & Refrigerators are most responsible for depletion of the ozone layer of the Earth. 

You definitely know that this 2020 year summer begins more Hotter than 2019 summer.

Did you know the reason ?

Why ? 

Because depletion of the ozone layer of the Earth. 

Now you are thinking should I not buy any A.C ?

No, But do shopping with some smartness, so that we give a little bit of contribution to our mother nature .

Who knows Your little step will decrease the next year’s summer temperature.

Here we go,

You should know little bit technical Knowledge before buying any A.C

Why A.C (Air Conditioners) not have Water tank like our coolers,then how cold air comes out from A.C  ?

This is the Black magic !

Hahaha

No , This is pure Science or Mechanical Engineering.

Every A.C (Air Conditioners) in India uses Refrigerants gas inside the compressor,Due to this Refrigeration Effect  our room remains cool compared to the surrounding.

What are Refrigerants ?

 It is the working fluid or working substance which is used to extract heat from room or storage space.

What is Refrigeration Effect ?

It is the amount of heat ,which is required to extract from storage space or room ,in order to provide and maintain lower temperature inside the room than that of the surrounding.

When you stand behind any working Window A.C you feel so much Hot air coming out from A.C , Only Due to this Refrigeration Effect. This refrigerant effect absorbs all heat inside the room and throws outside hot air.

In simple Language

This Refrigerants gas works like water when compared to our cooler,That’s why A.C does not have any water Tank.Only you have Refill gas inside the compressor after 8-10 years..

This Refrigerant gas is responsible for depletion of our ozone layer.So you have to go with R-32 refrigerant. We have many refrigerant agents better than R-32 but you know very well India is a developing country still searching for a better refrigerant for our industry.

Cons:

  • Remote is a bit of a disappointment. They gave a very large and bulky remote. But it works okay.

Editor opinion :

There is an LED light in the middle of the front side for indicating the temperature. This is not generally visible in the product images. Temperature setting can range from 16 to 30 degrees, as is the case with most of the ACs.

I could see only a nominal rise  in electricity bills. So far there was only some Rs 400  rise per month after its arrival, though it is used for around 10 hours a day. The savings may be due to the inverter component of this AC.

AC did not come with a drainage pipe which should be required for a split AC.

Humidifiers work real awesome.

Overall its value for money.

cons:

Due to Rotary compressor sometime it produce little bit noise & Vibration which was not big issue, but in which wall you mount should be equal or greater then 4 inch width.If you mount in wood Frame window then you get little bit distortion noise.

Editor Opinion :

I am using this AC since last 5 years it perform very well .But sometime due to electricity power up down its compressor restart.So use good company stabilizer.
To get its maximum efficiency mount this A.C on wall near to Height of your Bed Or Chair,it not perform like splitter A.C when you mount on 8 feet .
Tip : If your kitchen next to your room ,so that direct cooling air go inside kitchen, In the month of July -August when Humidity is very high ,use combination of Cooler + Window A.C . Automatically inside kitchen temperature goes down due to air flow.
 
If your budget is low then definitely go with this A.c without any hesitation.

Best AC in India 2020 – Buying Guide

What is meaning of split AC 1.5 Ton, 1.5 ton window ac,  Window AC 1 Ton, Split AC 1 Ton 

1 Ton A,C is not weight of the AC . It is the refrigeration Unit

It is the amount of heat which is required to extract from 1 TON of water at 0 degree Celsius in order to convert it into equivalent ice at o degree Celsius in day ( 24 hr )

Why AC produce so much noise & vibration when it switch ON 

Due to its compressor.Rotatory compressor produce less noise compare to reciprocating compressor.

When do we use AC over a desert cooler 

In case of summer AC the process of cooling & dehumidification occurs,whereas in case of winter A.c the process of heating and humidification occur.

In the case of desert coolers the process of cooling & humidification occur.

Desert cooler are most effective when valve of variable depression is high

Why A.C consume a large amount of electricity 

Due to its compressor which play important role in refrigeration effect.

What is the meaning of Inverter AC or Non Inverter AC 

It depends on the number of hours you are going to use. If you are about to use your AC for more than 8–10 hours a day, you should go for inverter AC as it will save you around 15–20% on electricity consumption as compared to non-inverter AC. Inverter AC’s compressor is controlled by VFD which enables constant operation of compressor at optimized speed as per different load conditions. While non-inverter AC compressor either runs at 100% or zero as per set temperature which increases power consumption and wear and tear, i.e. frequency of maintenance.

Pros of inverter AC over non-inverter:-

  1. Low maintenance frequency,
  2. Saving on electricity consumption,
  3. Optimized air conditioning,
  4. Higher ISEER values as compared to non-inverter.
  5. Suitable for longer hours of operation.

When I stand behind any Window AC ,why AC throws outside so much hot air 

Due to its refrigeration effect.

It is the amount of heat ,which is required to extract from storage space or room ,in order to provide and maintain lower temperature inside the room than that of the surrounding.

When you stand behind any working Window A.C you feel so much Hot air coming out from A.C , Only Due to this Refrigeration Effect. This refrigerant effect absorbs all heat inside the room and throws outside hot air.

Copper Coil vs Aluminium Coil 

copper coil is best.Ignore aluminium coil

Is stabilizer required for the Air conditioner?

Yes,sometime due to electricity power up down its compressor restart.So use good company stabilizer.

What are Refrigerants ?

 It is the working fluid or working substance which is used to extract heat from room or storage space.

Types of refrigerant :

  • Primary refrigerant
  • Secondary refrigerant

Primary refrigerants are the working fluids that undergo cyclic processes and produce lower temperature. Ex; R-11,R-12,R-22,R-134 etc.

Secondary Refrigerant :These are the first cooled with the help of primary refrigerants and than used for cooling at the desired location. Ex: H2o Brine solution

Chemical Formula’s:

  • R-11= CFCL3
  • R12= CF2CL2
  • R-22 = CHF2CL1
  • R-32 = CH₂F₂.
  • R-134 = C2H2F4

R-32 & R-134 is known as the eco friendly refrigerant.because absence of chlorine element.

The presence of chlorine element in various refrigerants attacks the ozone layer which is located in stratosphere.The ozone layer filters out harmful ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun and chlorine element reduces the thickness of ozone layer.therefore we have to use R-32 & R-134 refrigerant which is having lower valve of ozone depletion potential. Other alternatives are fluoro-carbon, hydro-fluoro carbon. 

Refrigerant and their application

  • R-11 = large centralized air condition unit
  • R-12 = Domestic Refrigerator .water cooler
  • R-22 ,R-32= window A.C
  • NH3 = COLD STORAGE
  • Co2 = direct contact freezing of foods.
  • Brine = Milk Chilling Plants
  • Air = Gas liquefaction , aircraft refrigeration system

Does this A,C work in single phase or three phase power supply ?

Before buy you have to check Technical Specification.

What is the maintenance cost ?

Once a season you have wash Window AC with water

Which one Having Good Resale value ?

Voltas Company AC having good resale value

Conclusion

Winner According to style & Design is Daikin

Winner According to Budget with performance is Voltas 1.5 window AC
