In today’s world, with the temperature levels soaring each day, an air conditioner has evolved into a necessity from the status symbol it was 10 years ago. Every household has an air conditioner, every commercial and public space is air conditioned. Even when people are renting out homes or buying their homes, an air conditioner is often the first thing they check out. Comfort is primary and with heat levels rising by the day, it is difficult to imagine comfort without air conditioning.

It’s good if the home you are moving into has an air conditioner installed already, but if it does not, and you are looking to get an air conditioner fitted, how do you know what to look for? Whether you walk into a retail store or you browse through online portals to buy an air conditioner online, it is a nightmarish experience owing to the wide variety of options out there for people looking to buy the best air conditioner for their homes.

If you walk into a retail store hoping for someone to help you choose the best air conditioner, there’s a good chance you will be pointed to the most expensive option there is. However, if you are willing to buy an air conditioner online, you will need to conduct your own research which we can help you out for.

If financing is a concern, online options prove to be of more assistance then as well. For instance, on the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store, you can buy an air conditioner on EMI. It is available at a no-cost EMI, with zero down payment at the time of purchase.

Now that financing is out of the way, let’s move on to the other parameters that an air conditioner purchase will entail.

Here is the ultimate AC buying guide in India where you can learn how to buy, choose and select the right air conditioner for your room.

A split AC or a Window AC?

window AC only works in rooms with a window, and is ideal for rooms where space is a constraint. Window ACs are easier to install as compared to split AC since there is no need to drill walls and conceal air tubes. Another great advantage associated with window ACs is that a lot of models offer built-in heaters as well, which can be used to stay warm during winters. Before you decide that a window AC is the best air conditioner that you could buy, consider the following benefits of a split AC too. These cool rooms and spaces faster, since they have wide blowers for pushing out higher volumes of cool air. Since split ACs can be fit on any wall, there is no requirement for a window in the room you want to fit it in. A split AC is also much less noisier than a window AC since the compressor and condenser are located outside.

What should be the capacity of the AC I purchase?

AC capacity can be decided on the size of the room you wish to fit it in. For instance, an air conditioner of 1 ton AC is ideal for rooms that are smaller than 10 feet, while an air conditioner with a capacity of 1.5 ton AC will work perfectly in a room sized 10×15 feet. Aside of the room dimensions, capacity of an AC to work perfectly will also depend on factors such as if your room has a height of more than 9.5 feet, or which floor your house is located on.

What is the star rating on ACs?

The star rating on air conditioners depict the amount of power they consume. While those with higher ratings cost a little more, they help you save money in the long run through savings on your electricity bill. The best air conditioner with a 5 star energy rating will bolster your savings significantly. You can buy an air conditioner on EMI through the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store, which sells ACs at a zero cost EMI.

What is an inverter AC?

An inverter AC provides better cooling along with energy efficiency. The advantages of inverter ACs include consistent cooling through a compressor which runs constantly but varies its speed to cool evenly and maintain a constant temperature. These are smart ACs where the compressor’s speed varies depending on the room’s temperature to cool faster. As a result, it consumes less power since it does not have to frequently touch max cooling speeds.

What is the auto-clean function and do I need an anti-bacterial filter?

The best air conditioners available in the market today have a mix of features. Some ACs might be fitted out with an anti-bacterial filter that eliminates tiny harmful substances and microorganisms such as pollen, dust mites, bacteria, etc. The dehumidifier feature, available on several air conditioners, helps you get rid of excess moisture in the air during the monsoon season.
