Things To Consider Before Buying Air Conditioner

Room Size : The size/capacity of the AC should be as per the size of your room. If it is bigger it will not be able to evaporate the humidity properly & the smaller one will cost you more in terms of utilization of energy. A 1.5 Ton Ac is enough for a 12’×12′ ×10′ room.

Energy Efficiency : The more STAR rating your air conditioner has, the more Energy Efficient it is. This star rating system is provided by BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) to understand which AC has the right EER(Energy Efficient Ratio) which help us to get lower running costs and hence save the electricity costs.

Cooling Capacity : Cooling capacity of an air conditioner is measured in terms of British Thermal Unit(BTU). 12000 BTU/hour is equal to 1 Ton. The air conditioner prices mainly depend on this BTU. The cooling capacity you need will depend on various factors like room size, no. of windows, local climate, no. of people using the room etc.

Exposure to Heat & Sunlight : If your room is closer to the kitchen heat or one or more wall of your room is directly exposed to the sun you will need an air conditioner with higher cooling capacity.
