    How to calculate the AC five star rating ?

  25. malay doshi says:

    before purchase a c what should we check (about company or stars)?

    • 1, First you have to check the after sale service of particular company and service centers location
      2, If energy star rating is high, It will save the electricity. It is not depend the product quality
      3, Check the correct tonnage before buying AC (Tonnage is measurement of room volume). If it is incorrect, Ac won’t work properly.
      4, Check the warranty time of the components

  59. Crictime says:

    Hi bro. I am planning for Sharp Inverter 1.1 Ton AC. I read some review on internet, it has mixed positive to negative reviews, on one site its rated 2/5. But one dealer in my area recommended this AC as better than any Panasonic and Samsung AC.

    Whats your recommendation. ?

    Should I go for it?

    • I am using Sharp 1.1 ton Inverter AC in top floor room Model: AH-X13PET (INV). It is best AC i ever seen because it we can use like “FAN”. Dont worry about current charge because Sharp Inverter AC consuming very low power. So dont go for other 5 Star rated AC’s. The inverter AC is very good. My Model is using copper coils so it is durable. Aluminum coil Inverter AC’s are also available for cheap rate. Better Copper coil but price is littele high.

  60. I am looking for a good quality A.C within 30k for 1 ton split. And I have zeroed in on Godrej Eon which is coming exactly in the same price. They are also usuing Japanese compressor and copper coils so please advise if it would be a good choice.
