How to select the right AC for your home.

The selection of AC for a room is not an easy task. Common myths while buying AC is “ batchoon ka kamray main lagana hai, 1 ton da dain” or “akalay ammi ka kamray main zarurak hai“…Thats not workable.

The following factors need to consider while selecting.

  • Size of the room, bigger room obviously needs bigger capacity AC.
  • Check if the room is exposed to the sun directly – If not, that’s good news!!
  • Normally 1 ton is good for a 125-150 square feet size room, provided it is not exposed to the sun directly. A small office (even less than 100 square feet ) with exposure to the sun needs 1.5 ton AC. 1.5 ton for Approx 180-200 Square feet of room.
  • Consider weather temperature of your city – The compressors categories are T1, T2, T3. T3 for the very warm climate.
  • Inverter or Non-Inverter – Not many companies publishes data about how many units of electricity are consumed by the inverter than the non-inverter for the same size if run for the same amount of time. So personal experiences are the best to judge. The inverter is approx 25% Expensive than non-inverter to buy but the running cost is less than the non-inverter.
  • The efficiency rating of the AC is also important to note, higher the better.
  • There are other factors like wifi, design, colors, etc that depend on individual budget and choices.


Kitchen Appliances – Market

Many customers ask many questions while buying kitchen appliances. I tried to answer a few here.

Brand- Market is generally, unofficially, categorized into three categories. Top Tier, Middle Tier, Chines brand.

Although many of the top tiers are also made in China but the quality of their products is certainly the best. A good example is Apple iPhone, its made in China but the most expensive phone in the world.

Some of the top tier brands in Kitchen Appliances are – Panasonic, Moulinex, Braun, Tefal, Russel Hub, Philips etc.

Middle Tier – These are Black+Decker, Kenwood, Alpina, Sinbo etc

Made in China brands are – West Point, Anex, Gaba National,  Super National, Bingo etc.

The top-tier brand items, sell themselves. These are the most expensive in the market but customers know that they will work for a longer time and would not need to be covered by the warranty. Customers have good experience with these brands for decades.

The middle-tier brands are somehow struggling to make room for themselves in the market. They are made in china but their name makes them sell.

The made in China brands sell because of their prices.
