Follow this guide to find the ideal AC for your home or office.

1. Consider room size and placement for the AC

To get optimum cooling, select one based on your room’s size. This will help ensure that your AC works to its full potential, providing adequate cooling, and promoting the life of the AC. You can calculate the right tonnage by using this method: Multiply the breadth, height and length and of the room in feet and divide the result by 1000. Also decide on the right placement for the AC to make sure it can easily cool the entire room. For example, if you’re looking for an AC for the bedroom, ensure that the window unit is installed above your bed, either on the wall where you lay your head or facing your feet, for the best cooling.

2. Decide on required AC capacity based on the occupants

Apart from the volume of the room, also consider the number of people that will frequently use the room. A room with more people means more body heat, requiring a high tonnage versus an AC for a single person.

3. Opt for noise reduction:

Whether you are selecting an AC for your home or office, you will want your AC to create a relaxed environment. This is why you should pay keen attention to noise reduction features. This feature makes the AC function silently by cutting out the extra noise. This feature may increase the cost a little, but offers you superior convenience.

4. Choose between a window or split AC

A window AC is one that is mounted into the frame of a window and consists of only one unit. This requires a specific window frame to exist as part of the room. If not, this will need to be constructed. A split AC consists of two units. This includes the indoor and outdoor unit that is connected by a copper tube. To choose a split AC you will need ensure there is adequate outdoor space for the unit to be mounted. Generally, split ACs offer you more energy efficiency, have more features, and look less intrusive; however, they cost more and require more space to install. Window ACs, on the other hand, are easy to install and come with a lower price tag but often don’t offer noise reduction and other add-on features.

5. Look for energy saving ACs

You can save on your power bills with energy-efficient ACs. This will ensure beating the heat does not come with a high post-purchase price! Energy efficiency is judged based on ratio scale of 1 to 5, and the more the stars, the more you save on power bills. So, ensure you look for an AC with 3 stars and higher to make the most of your purchase.

Now that you know the five most important parameters of buying an AC, it’s time to shop for one on the Bajaj Finserv EMI Network.
