Choosing an air conditioner
Posted 17 April 2012 - 08:15 AM
I'm not sure if this would be the right place to ask, but I guess this falls under the Tech category, so here goes...
I'm planning on buying a 1.5 ton split AC for my living room as summer has begun here and it's pretty f*cking hot. However, I have very limited knowledge when it comes to good brands, what to look for in specifications and such.
Can any of you guys point me in the right direction? I'm looking at one of those power saving 5 star ACs. Budget is anywhere between Rs.30000 and Rs.35000.

The most common are them Windows type, most of the major brands will do, and the other is called a split AC.
Split AC has a indoor unit and outdoor unit. The Indoor unit is installed inside your house to provide AC, and the outdoor unit
are usually installed outside of your house. Split AC are silent.

What I actually need to know is what specifications I should be looking at when comparing different types of similar ACs. For example, power rating, compressor, filter type, etc. It will help if you could tell me which of these parameters are of utmost importance.

I have a window AC that has 10,000BTU, but never got around installing it as it wasn't hot enough to use it.
It's still sitting inside its box...
