In this Post, I am going to List down the Best Inverter AC’s in India For Home and Office use. The Inverter Air conditioners are more effective and utilize less power when compared with the Normal ACs.

An Inverter AC adapts its speed depending on the heat load in the room. Unlike the regular Split ACs, The Inverter Air conditioners have shifting speed motors that adjust their speed according to the requirement. So, Obviously, they consume 30- 40% less electricity.

According to Bureau of Energy Efficiency, an Inverter AC of BEE 3 Star Rating is 7% more energy efficient than a BEE 5 rated normal Split AC. Please note that the Inverter technology is available only for the split ACs.

With Normal ACs, whenever the compressor starts, there will be a slight fluctuation, and when the compressor runs, the room gets chilly, and when it shuts off, the room might get a little bit warm.

But, that’s not the case with the Inverter AC, when you set temperature, After some time, the temperature will be almost constant, and you don’t even notice if the compressor is running or not.

Commonly used Terms

Ton: It is the term used to measure the capacity of an AC. 1 Ton is the Power of an AC that can cool 1000 KGs of air within 24 hours.

Air Purifier: Most AC’s today are equipped with the technology to recycle and purify air to keep the environment clean and healthy.

Efficiency: It is measured through a star rating. More stars mean greater efficiency and savings.

So, without any further ado, here is the list of Best Split Inverter ACs.

Everything you need to know about Inverter Air conditioners!

The Inverter ACs are more powerful and also offer significant power saving and are better at maintaining a uniform temperature. The inverter is a device in the AC that controls the frequency of the electricity that is supplied to the compressor motor.

Difference between Inverter AC and Non-Inverter AC

The Non-Inverter AC’s have fixed speed compressor that cannot enhance or reduce their speed and work only at one given capacity. That is the reason why sometimes the room gets chilly or a little warm.

Also, The Non-Inverter AC’s stops on reaching the set temperature and when the room temperature rises, again the compressor and refrigerant flow restart.

With the Inverter technology, the compressor is always on but draws the power according to the room temperature. The Inverter technology has variable speed motors that change the rate according to the requirement, thus saving more electricity.

Note: Inverter is a device that is located inside the Air Conditioner and is not related to power back-up Inverter. The Inverter in the Air conditioners helps in regulating the speed of the compressor.

    • Normally, Inverter ACs don’t have Star ratings. Now, the AC brands started providing ratings for Inverter ACs as the customers are asking for that.

The Build Quality of the Hitachi ACs is good. Blue Star ACs come with Blue Fin Anti-Corrosive coating and seven types of filters and it is suitable even if you are living in a Heavy Traffic, Polluted or corrosive environment.

  6. say some fully controlled variable speed air conditioners which operates according to room temperatures like lennox air conditioners (which says 65 ac’s in one ac) , i require 1.5 ton, air purifier, copper one as i stay near sea shore,

    • If you live in a Corrosive area or polluted environment with heavy traffic or near to the sea, it is better to opt for an AC with Copper condenser. No matter copper or Aluminum, Look for Anti-Corrosive features like Blue Fin corrosion protection.

      Non-Inverter Split Air Conditioners are fixed speed whereas Inverter ACs come with Variable Speed. Check Out Blue Star and Hitachi Air Conditioners. If your usage of AC is not high, a BEE 5 Star rated non-inverter AC can do the job.

    • 1 Ton AC is okay for a room size of 120 sqft (Small Bedrooms). If the Temperature is very high, you have to opt for 1.5 Ton for faster cooling.

      So, If you are living in a corrosive environment, Make sure you opt for the brand that provides Blue Fin or MultiJet or any other Anti-Corrosive coating. Blue Star is the Leading AC manufacturer in our country and also provides good support. But, the service provided by these brands might differ from one place to other.

  15. Hi chaitanya thanks for information provided
    Need to buy a best inverter ac for my 150 sq ft room on 4th floor, lives in Delhi so extreme heat and pollution
    And need to buy AC with best energy efficient as need to run ac for almost 16hrs

    • You can check Godrej NXW Inverter AC. The AC has ISEER 5.8 rating, and the NXW ACs use R290 Refrigerant that is least harmful to the environment. It has Gold Fin Nano coating to prevent corrosion. There is also Silver Ion Filter for Air Purification inside the room.

      Also, Have a look at Blue Star 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC – White (3CNHW18CAF). This model comes with Blue Fin Anti Corrosive Protection, Dust and Anti-Bacterial Filters.

      Voltas 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC – White (18V DY) is the next suitable option. It also comes with all the required filters and copper tubes and gold hydrophylic aluminum fins for corrosion prevention.

      Mitsubishi (Heavy and Electric), Daikin and Hitachi also have BEE 5 Star models that are suitable for Heavy Temperature environment. But, not all those models come with Corrosion protection.

  16. Hi Chaintanya, you’re doing great job. I hope you help me in talking wise decision at this moment. I am using Videocon 1.5 ton 5 Star Ac since 5 years , its dead now, gas is lost. Technician confirmed compressor is leaking gas, need to replace it along with inserting gas and servicing charges he is asking for 7k Rs. And indoor unit to not working and needs to be checked by tech. With all this, is it wise to repair my Videocon Ac now by spending 8k+ or better to buy new inverter ac around 33K. What do you say?
    I am looking to buy LG 1.5 ton 3 star dual-inverter ac, share your opinion on that. Thanks for your reply in advance.

    • Any reply from you will be appreciated. And the Videocon AC hasn’t performed well at all and its not efficient. Does outdoor unit facing sun affects cooling?

      • The Outdoor unit of the AC contains main parts like Compressor and Condenser, and It should be placed on a Flat surface. The distance between the indoor unit and outdoor unit of the split Air Conditioner should be minimum. The Outdoor unit of the Split AC should be installed at a location away from the Sunlight. But, the savings are very minimal.

        It is a good idea to keep a lot of plants at your house. But, do not block the Outdoor unit of the AC with them or any other object.

    • I assume your Old Videocon Air Conditioner use R22 Refrigerant. It is not a good idea to fill your Videocon AC with that R22 Gas. It is not energy efficient and also harmful to the environment. Investing around 8K on old AC is a bad idea. The LG Dual Inverter AC is efficient and also power saving. If you are living near to the sea shore, you have to opt for an AC that comes with Bluefin or any other anti-corrosive coating.

      • Thanks for the reply. I live in Ongole, Andhra Pradesh which is 15 km away from Kothpatanm beach (sea). So is It OK for me to go with LG dual Inverter AC? The LG Dual Inverter AC you have mentioned is Good and is energy efficient, It comes with Aluminum Alloy. If you are living in a rust free environment, you can opt for it. The next suitable option is Bluestar Inverter ACs, they come with Anti-Corrosive Blue Fins that are used in the copper condenser to resist its corrosion.

  17. I am looking for a 1.5 Ton Inverter AC for me. I live in Delhi NCR on 14th floor. Confused between the perfect model within my budget. I am looking for copper condenser only with all required filters and less power consumption.
    Haier, Mitashi & Whirlpool brand seem cheaper and i am not sure whether they’ll be good in performance or not.
    Hitachi, Daikin, Panasonic, Bluestar, Godrej and Voltas are a little higher on price.
    Which AC would you recommend me to go for out of these brands in budget of approx 40K.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Hitachi, Daikin, Mitsubishi, Panasonic are higher priced brands. Samsung, LG, Voltas, Bluestar are medium priced. Onida, Lloyd, Intex are lower priced brands. If you are looking for 1.5 Ton Inverter AC with copper condenser around Rs.40,000. Here are a few suggestions.

      Blue Star 3CNHW18CAF/U Inverter Split AC (1.5 Ton, Copper)
      Hitachi 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC – Copper (RAU318EWEAS, Copper Condenser)
      Voltas Inverter 183VEY COOL 1.5 Ton 3 Star Split AC Copper
      Mitashi 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC – White (MiSAC15INv20, Copper Condenser) (budget model)

  18. Sir.really impressed with your article. I decided to take 1.5 ton inverter AC.but I was struck between Voltas 183V MY and bluestar AC. I am hearing mixed responses and reviews for both brands. Plz suggest me which one to take considering maintenance. Cooling. Nice levels, features like filters,mainly after sales support and expenditure. Waiting for your reply. Your decision is final sir

    • Voltas 183V MY 1.5 Ton Inverter AC comes with High EER Rotary – BLDC Compressor and R410A Refrigerant. This AC is equipped with Silver Ion Filter, Anti-Dust Filter, Catechin Filter and Acaro Bacterium (Red) for dust and bacteria prevention. EER (Energy efficiency ratio) is 3.6

      Blue Star 3CNHW18CAF/U Inverter Split AC has Bluefin copper condenser and catechin filter, activated carbon filter and Cleanable panels and is suitable even if you are living near to the sea shore. You have to opt for the model according to your requirements. If you are residing in a corossive environment, make sure the AC come with an Anti-Corrosive Coating. Both Voltas and Bluestar provide good support, but the support might differ from one place to other. The toll-free numbers of these brands are mentioned at Amazon product page. Make sure you call them and enquire if they provide quick installation and support.

    • Previously, Lloyd used to make commercial Air conditioners. Lloyd is an Indian Brand and now it is acquired by Havells and they are making ACs for Home. Voltas and Bluestar are the leading Indian AC Manufacturers. Lloyd inverter AC (LS18AI) come with Copper condenser and R-410A Refrigerant, Dust filter and dehumidification.

  19. Hi sir. We need 1 ton inverter AC. With copper anti rust and corrosive coating condenser and good air purifier filters. And also more energy efficient and power saving. We are planning to buy bluestar 3cnhw12caf model 1 ton 3 star inverter AC.
    Please suggest your advice whether is it right selection?

    • The Model you have mentioned (Blue Star CNHW12CAF Inverter Split AC) is good. It comes with a copper condenser and anti-corrosive blue condenser fins. Also, there are catechin (Anti-Bacterial), silver ion and active carbon Dust filters.

      Also, Bluestar has a wide range of service centers across India. The EER Value is 3.21, and this Blue Star Inverter AC is more efficient, and 15-25% power saving than a Normal Split AC.

    • Carrier is a US-based Air Conditioner manufacturer. The service provided by Carrier might differ from one place to other. Before purchasing the Air Conditioner, you can contact them at (Toll-Free Number: 1800-3000-9027) and make sure they provide quick support at your place.

      Also, Make sure that the AC installation is done only by the Authorized technician. Have a look at Carrier Superia Plus Inverter Split AC. It comes with a Copper condenser, Ionizer, and Auto Clean feature. The cabin of this AC has Anti-rust coating. Some of the Carrier, Daikin brands ACs do not come with an anti-corrosive blue-fin coating. If you are living very near to the sea shore, Make sure you opt for an AC that comes with the Anti-Corrosive Coating.

  20. Samsung AR18MV3HLWK or LG 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC White (BSA18IBE), whichever best inverter AC for home use, pls suggest.

    • The ERR Value of the Samsung AR18MV3HLWK Inverter Split AC is 3.29, and LG Inverter AC is 3.41

      Higher the ERR Value, More will be the power saving. But, here the difference is very minor. Both the models you have mentioned are good. R410A is the refrigerant that is used in both models.

      The LG Inverter AC is equipped with Dual Protection Filter, and 3M Micro Protection Filter (Dust and Bacterial filters), Auto Cleaning and the Condensers come with anti-rust coating.

      Samsung model also has an anti-corrosive coating and Auto clean functionality.

      You have to opt for the brand that provides quick support at your place. The customer support numbers of Samsung and LG are mentioned on the Amazon product page.

  21. Hi chaitanya, impressed the way you respond to each every mailer. I am writing here to know about one of my future buy of 1.5 Ton 3 star Inverter AC and I found Panasonic PS18SKYS with 2.5 PM Dual filter along with Catechin filter in their standard offering. Kindly advise the selection and also guide that how this Air purification works simultaneously with other basic features of an AC. Thanks in advance

    • PM 2.5 Particles are very small and not visible to the human eye (Pollutants released by Vehicles, Cigarette smoke, burning of coal and other gasses released by factories). Constant exposure to PM 2.5 particles is dangerous.

      Catechin filter has antiviral qualities, and it deactivates the bacteria. The Panasonic model you have mentioned is good especially if you are living in a city with heavy traffic.

      The Panasonic PS18SKYS Inverter Split AC come with BlueFin Condenser and is resistant to corrosion. The R-410A Refrigerant used in this AC does not harm the Ozone layer.

  22. Hello Chaitanya
    What are your views about the dual invertor series of LG . How different is it from normal invertor ac ?

    • The LG Dual Invertor Series Split Air Conditioners comes with Dual Rotary Compressor and R-410A Refrigerant. This AC also comes with Auto Clean feature that dries the wet heat exchanger once the AC is turned off. With Dual Inverter Compressor, there will be faster cooling and more power saving than a normal compressor. R-410A has zero Ozone depletion potential, and It is much better than R22 Refrigerant.

      Godrej NXW Series Air Conditioners come with R290 (Greenest Refrigerant), and it has the lowest environmental impact.

      • And your thoughts on Alloy as that been the latest… I am confused as I am not sure if that would be good for places like Chennai, which is along the sea shore. Can you guide me please

        • Alloy is aluminum. No matter copper or Alloy both can corrode if you are living in a corrosive environment or near to the shore.

          You have to opt for the brand that provides anti-corrosion coating (Blue fin condensers, Micro channel or Multi-Jet Technology).

          So, If you are living in Chennai, opt for the model that comes with any of the above Anti-Corrosive protection.

  23. Hi,
    Please help me to choose from below models:
    Hitachi 5400i RSA518CAEA
    O General ASGA18JCC Inverter Series

    I can go for MIstbushi Ac as well. Please suggest.

    Whcih brand has good service?

    • Both Hitachi 5400i RSA518CAEA and O General ASGA18JCC comes with a Rotary Compressor. The ERR (Energy Efficiency Ratio) value of Hitachi Inverter AC is (5.15), and O General Inverter AC is (3.51). Higher the ERR value, lower will be the power consumption and the Air conditioner will be more efficient.

      Other than that, Both the models come with all the required dust, Anti-Bacterial filters, and Anti-Corrosive Coating. Also, Have a look at Mitsubishi MSY-GE18VA Inverter Cooling Split AC (1.5 Ton). The service provided by these brands differ from one place to other.

  24. Hi sir. Impressed by your patience at writing replies.very nice to have this posted information regarding ACs.its very useful. We are going to buy AC first time. With the info you provided we decided to buy inverter AC.(1 or 1.5 ton)We stay in chennai. Please suggest best inverter AC with preferably copper or anti corrosive anti rusting dust filters and anti bacterial environment friendly with all good features. Thanks in advance

    • Anti-Corrosion feature is must as you are living near to the sea shore. Summer in Chennai is Super hot, and I assume that you will be using the Air Conditioner for longer periods of time. So, It will be best to opt for Inverter AC that comes with ECO-Friendly features.

      Have a look at Godrej NXW inverter AC. It comes with R-290 Refrigerant that is not only energy saving but also the Most Eco-Friendly Refrigerant that has Zero Ozone Depletion Potential and very little impact on the environment.

      It comes with Dust, Silver Ion, Anti-and Bacterial filters with Auto Cleaning function. This AC also has Conformal Coating on the PCB unit and Gold Nano coating to the condenser fins for resistance from Moisture and Corrosion.

      Also, Have a look at the Air Conditioners I have mentioned the above list. Daikin, Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Panasonic, Toshiba are using R32 Refrigerant which is better than R-410A.

  25. I want to buy an 1.5 ton ac for may bedroom my budget is 30,000 …should I buy onida with eco friendly gas?I stay in Thane Maharashtra…. Suggest the best for me and if I buy them online ….do they cover the warranty period…is it safe buying online….I do see many offers online…please suggest soon
    Priya

    • You will get the Same Brand warranty and service when you buy products online at Amazon, Flipkart. Also, you will get free delivery. Amazon and Flipkart are safe. Onida Inverter AC comes with a copper condenser, Dust and Anti-Bacterial filters, Dehumidification. The Refrigerant used is R410A which is okay. R-32 and R-290 are more Eco-friendly. Also, Have a look at LG 1.5 Ton 3 Star Dual Inverter Split AC.

  26. please tell me best 5 star or inverter ac, & which is best
    140 sqft room on 1st floor
    voltas 185 MY is best for me or not ?

    • 1.5 Ton AC is required for a room size of 140 sqft room. Inverter AC is better than 5 Star Split ACs in terms of Power consumption and performance. Have a look at the models I have mentioned above. If you are Planning to Buy Voltas Brand AC, Have a look at Voltas 1.5 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split AC (Copper, 183V).

  27. hello sir plz give me the review of reconnect 1.5 ton invertor ac as it is available in good price ..shall i go for it or if not than tell me d diference diakin ftkh50srv and ftkh50 rrv ..which one i best

    • I have never heard of that Reconnect brand. It is advised that you spend you hard earned money on a Good Brand that provides quick support. Daikin FTKH50SRV model comes with Hermecitally sealed SWING Compressor, The FTKH50RRV Model comes with Rotary compressor. Rotary compressor is suitable for those whose use Air Conditioner continuously for hours (like Offices, Shopping Mall).

  28. pl tell me about LG JS Q 18 AUXA 1.5 TON INVERTOR AC in term of energy consumption ( daily usage may be 10 hrs per day), maintenance , and for a family lived in jaipur rajasthan (1st floor)

  29. Hi I have question.. I visited a showroom today and the seller said that Godrej eon ac provides green gas Technology – the gas name was something R290 which he said is the most environment friendly gas ever used in acs .. Is this true ?? However i personally prefer Daikin , Samsung or LG over Godrej still m in a confusion.. Please help out

    • What the sales person said to you is correct. Godrej uses hydrocarbon refrigerant R290 that have BEE 5 star rating. R290 (Propane) refrigerant has low environmental impact and excellent thermodynamic performance.

      Top Japanese Brands like Daikin, Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Toshiba use an R-32 refrigerant that is energy efficient and has a lower impact on the environment and zero impact on Ozone.

      But R-290 (Propane) and R-600A (Iso-Butane) has the least impact on the environment. These greener refrigerants are highly flammable, but the AC Manufacturing brands ensure that there will be no leakage. As of now, no accident incidents are reported.

  30. Hi Chaitanya! Your post is quite impressive. Thanks.

    I stay in Pune and this summer is worse than ever. As we are already in May does it makes sense to buy an AC now considering peak summer will be over in a month? Or should I still go for it considering monsoons?

    Pls advise as delaying it further won’t make any sense.

    Thanks – Subbu.

    • As I mentioned in the Post, the Inverter AC’s don’t consume too much power. It is advised to use the Air Conditioner at 22-23 celsius. Most of the Inverter ACs come with Turbo mode that offers Instant cooling that will be helpful during the Hot Summer. If you are Planning to buy the AC now, you can make use of the Amazon Great Indian Sale ( 11 – 14 May), Flipkart Big 10 Sale offers.

  31. Hi … need you expert suggestion!

    I bought daikin inverter ac 3 years back but it started giving problems this summer. Different technicians looked into it & final suggestion is indoor unit needs to be replaced.
    The big problem is indoor unit of inverter models is not sold separately so they are suggesting me to use normal ac unit.

    I am now confused if this possible technically, outdoor unit of inverter model & indoor unit of non inverter model.
    Please suggest.

  32. Can you advise model number and details of a pump which is suited for home purpose for pumping water from well to tank. I need a pump having less power consumption, star rated, latest technology and good long lasting performance. The well is having 18 rings and having 1/3 of water available during the year.

  33. Dear Sir, I am Looking for 1.5 ton, Inverter AC. Cost no matter. I am little bit confused with which brand to go for. First i thought to go for Samsung or LG, but one of my friend who works for AC for last 10 yrs has suggested me to go for Voltas or Carrier or Hitachi or lloyd. As he suggested these are the one whose main business is AC’s. As I am on Transferable job i will be moving to smaller towns every 3 yrs. so please suggest me which Brand to go for keeping in point Reliability, durability and more service centers. plz help me.

    • Daikin, Carrier, Hitachi are some of the top Multi-National (Mainly Japanese) Air Conditioner brands that concentrate mainly on AC business but the service provided by these brand differ from place to place. On the other hand, LG and Samsung have a wide range of service centers across our country. Voltas, Bluestar are some of the top Indian brands. No matter what brand you opt for, make sure they provide good support at your place.

  34. I am looking for an AC within budget 35 preferably inverted model with anti corrosive , city bangalore with good after sales serivice , please suggest

    • Have a look at LG 1.5 Ton 3 Star Dual Inverter Split AC (Alloy, JS-Q18AFXD, White). It comes with Dual Rotary – R410A Compressor, Dust filters, Anti – Corrosive coating and all the required convenience features.

  35. I am staying at 2nd floor. &have 3 bedrooms. I want to install Inverter split AC in one room whose size is 128sq. feet. There are 2 floors above my room. I HAVE TO KEEP MY OUTDOOR UNIT on the roof which will need about 28 feet of copper wire.
    I desire to purchase Godrej NXW 1.5TON Inverter AC,having Model No. GSC18 GIG5 DGOG Will it be correct?
    Please give your views.

    • You can also attach the outdoor unit to the wall behind the bedroom if possible. The Godrej NXW 1.5TON Inverter AC comes with Dust, Anti-Bacterial filters, and all the required convenience features. The Indian Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (ISEER) value is 5.8. It is one of the most energy efficient Inverter ACs that comes with Anti-Rust Coating and Conformal coating.

  36. Dear VS Chaitanya,
    I am planning to buy a one ton (1Ton) invertor split ac. Room size is 4 meter length and 3 meter width. Kindly advise me three brands with their model number which are good in terms of value, performance, energy saver. Thanks in advance.

    • Have a look at the below models

      LG 1 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split AC (JS-Q12AFXD)
      Daikin 1 Ton Inverter Split AC (FTKP35QRV16)
      Mitashi 1 Ton Inverter Split AC (MiSAC10INv20)

  37. Hello Sir,
    Thanks for your detailed information. I want to buy an AC for room (10 X12), seems that inverter AC is better compared to other AC. Could you please suggest me a good inverter AC? The south side of room’s wall is exposed to direct sunlight and terrace is above the room, and the room is attached with bath room. I am also considering service and maintenance factor , since I am living in a small town of Tamilnadu.
    Thanks,
    Rams

    • 1.5 Ton Inverter AC is suitable for your room. The Inverter ACs save more power and offer better performance. LG, Samsung and Voltas have wide range of service centers across India. I have listed the top models in the above post.

      • Thank you sir, I just heard that inverter AC is not required for home, its mostly used for office purpose, and more ppl confused me that Inverter AC is made up with mother-board, so in case any issues, it would cost more to repair. Could you please guide me on this? Mostly I inquired about OG AC

        Thanks,
        Rams

        • What your friends suggested you is wrong, Inverter ACs have shifting speed motors that adjust their speed according to the room temperature and they are more efficient than the normal Split ACs. Have a look at the video in this post to know in-depth details.

    • It depends on the Model. But, Most of the LG Inverter ACs (including the one I have mentioned above) come with Aluminium condenser coil. But, the LG’s multi-flow condensers come with anti-rust coating and resistant to corrosion.

  38. Hi sir
    Confused between 1 ton or 1.5 . Direct sunlight with attached store and bathroom and which ac is best budget concious minimum investment maximum return in effeciency split inverter split or window ac

    • Don’t go for window AC. AS sunlight directly falls on the wall, It will be better to opt for 1.5 Inverter Split AC. It will be a little bit costlier than normal models. But, The Inverter ACs save more power and they are highly efficient when compared with window ACs.

  39. first thanks for your most useful review. I have been confused without knowing all these, My bed room size is 130, 1 St floor, direct sun on roof alone. My ideal template could be 28°. Usage will be 7-8hrs, So I would like to go for 1 ton inverter AC. I have seen your 1 ton AC list.. but almost all are normal AC. Please give me few inverter AC suggestions.

    • I have mentioned a few 1 Ton Inverter ACs in that Post. Have a look at LG 1 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split AC (JS-Q12AFXD), Hitachi (RAU312HWDS), Daikin 1 Ton Inverter Split AC (FTKP35QRV16). You can opt for the brand that provides good support at your place.

  40. Hi,
    I want to cover the below area with Single 2 Ton Samsung AC –
    Hall size is 170 Sq ft with extended dining hall -size – 107 Sq ft, Kitchen is 75 Sq ft, and a Bedroom of 140 Sq Ft.
    Bedroom is a separate room with Door entry. Other areas are open area (Hall, Dining Hall and Kitchen). Ceiling ht is 11ft.

    Seek your advise

    • 2 Ton ACs are suitable for rooms around 250-300 sq ft. You can cover Hall and Dining with your 2 Ton Samsung Split AC. I don’t think it will cool down your bedroom also. So, It is better to shut the bedroom door when you are using the Air Conditioner. Just make sure sunlight don’t enter your house. Cover all the windows with curtains. Also, open the doors, and windows early in the morning to allow some fresh airflow inside your home. In case you also want Air conditioning for your bedroom, have a look at Multi-Split ACs. These models have a single outdoor unit and multiple indoor units.

  41. Hello Chaitanya!
    Would like to know which one to prefer over & why between Split AC & Window AC? Also would like to know if Window AC comes with other features like Split AC apart from cooling.

    • Windows ACs are compact and suitable for medium-sized bedrooms. But they are not as effective as Split Air Conditioners and also consume more electricity when compared with Split ACs. Also, the indoor units of the Split ACs don’t make much noise when operating. The Latest Energy Efficient Inverter Technology is available only with the Split Air Conditioners.

    • Hello Chaitanya! With reference to my earlier post I would like to know if window AC comes with other features like dust, bacteria filters, hot &cool, dehumidification, sleep mode etc…

      • Window Air Conditioners also come with Dust, Anti – Bacterial filters and features like Auto Restart, Dehumidification and Sleep mode. Check out Flipkart or Amazon for window Air Conditioners, You can find all the features on the product page.

      • Hello Chaitanya. Appreciate your replies. I would like to know the best window AC brand between Bluestar & Hitachi. Would like to know which model should I buy among 5W18LC, 5W18GA, 5W18LA of Bluestar & RAT518HUD, RAV518HUD, RAW518KUDZ1 of Hitachi. Thank you.

        • Hitachi RAT518HUD is a better option as it comes with twin motors and auto fan speed that adjust according to the room environment. The condenser coil is copper and There is an extra heat exchanger for additional cooling. This model comes with dust, anti bacterial filtets, on off timer and a few other convince features. On the top of all these features, this Hitachi window ac is rated 5 stars by BEE.

  42. Thank-you very much sir for your feedback

      O General ASGA18JCC Inverter Split AC (1.5 Ton.

      All the above models are high end and suitable for medium sized bed rooms. If you are on a budget, you can opt for LG 1.5 Ton 3 Star Dual Inverter Split AC.

  43. i want to buy 1.5 T inverter AC with copper condenser … in my city voltas has good after sale service… can you suggest some model…??

    • Have a look at Voltas 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC – White (18V DY). It comes with eco-friendly R410A refrigerant and this 1.5 Ton AC is suitable for medium sized rooms. This model has copper tubes and gold hydrophilic aluminum fins to enhance efficiency and prevent corrosion. Other features of this model include dust, anti-bacterial filters, and dehumidification.

  44. Dear sir /Madam
    I am looking for 1.5 ton split AC

    Plz suggest me INVERTER or normal AC.
    From back side of Room one wall faces sun and also roof face sun ?
    Plz suggest
    AC should be electricity sever

    • Inverter AC will be best suited since you can use it for a long time and there will be constant cooling in your room. Have a look at LG, Samsung and Daikin models I have mentioned above. The initial investment will be high. But, there will be more power savings. It is advised to use any kind of AC at 21 – 23 Degrees (Thermal comfort) which is the ideal temperature for sleeping. Too much of cooling can also disrupt your sleep.

  45. Hi.
    I’m buying an A/c for the 1st time so I don’t have much knowledge in this area until I read your article.
    My room is about 190 sqft and i’m thinking about buying a Panasonic 1.5 ton Inverter A/c from Vijay Sales which will cost around 49,000/-. Will it be a good choice? I live in Pune and the temperature is cooking here.
    I’m not exactly sure about buying from online stores due to the service reviews.
    Is Panasonic a reliable brand in A/c’s? Which brand do you suggest for energy saving and humidity control?

    • Panasonic is a Japanese multinational electronics corporation and It is a reliable brand. The Panasonic Inverter ACs come with Copper condenser coil and also there is anti-rust coating. I am not sure if the Panasonic AC models come with Humidifier option. Please enquire it with dealer. It will be much better if you post the model number here so I can find the full details.

  46. Dear,

    Very nice information. I wanted to know which brand should be preferred Daikin or Voltas for Inverter 1.5 Ton & 2 Ton ? (Other factors of service availability remains same for both)

    Thanks.

    • If I were you, I would Go with Daikin Inverter AC. It comes with R-32 refrigerant that has very low impact on the environment. Also, the energy savings will be more. If you are on a Budget, Go for Voltas Inverter AC.

  47. Hi,
    Can I get a detailed product description of the HITACHI RAU 524 AVD (2 TON) with 5 star rating.
    How’s the cooling? What about the anti dust and bacterial filters?
    Will it cater to the demands of a 300 sq. feet room?

  48. Hi,
    I am thinking to purchase a 1.5 ton Godrej -NXW inverter AC for my bedroom. i would like to know how good is NXW Inverter Ac?
    is it worth to buy Godrej brand inverter AC? Please let me know your opinion.

    • Godrej NXW Green Inverter AC comes with Indian Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio of 5.8. This model comes with R290 refrigerant that has very minimal impact on the environment.

      Godrej provides 10 Years warranty on the compressor and five years on the condenser. The condenser coil comes with special gold nano coating that prevents corrosion. The Product comes with all the essential features like Dust, Anti-Bacterial filters, Dehumidification, sleep mode, turbo mode for Instant cooling and Eco-mode for power savings.

  49. Hi,
    I need to purchase 1 ton Inverter AC, as i am in urge to go only for 2 brands; Mitsubishi and Toshiba, which one can i Opt?

    • Both Mitsubishi and Toshiba are Japanese brands, and they are reliable. But, there are not many models from these brands that are in the BEE list. Have a look at the Mitsubishi MSY-GK18VA Split AC. But, the Mitsubishi ACs are imported from Thailand’s. Make sure you buy the AC from an Authorized dealer who provides on-time warranty and service.

  50. Thanks Mr Chaitanya for your beautiful elaboration. I am planning to buy a Mitsubishi inverter ac , 5 star ,1.5 and 1.9ton(GN model) as suggested by a friend. Please inform me if it will be a good decision in terms of power consumption and efficiency.
    I am concerned as I did not find that one in your choices.

    • Mitsubishi has 2 Models (Electric and Heavy). Both are good. Mitsubishi Electric is more popular. The Mitsubishi ACs are priced a little bit on the higher side. But, the investment is worth it. But, there are not much Mitsubishi service centres across India. Just make sure you buy the AC only from a Authorized dealers that provides quick service.

  51. Hi Chaitanya, Thanks for your post. Can you please help me in choosing the said models. i have decided to go with inverter models
    1.5 ton ( 1 OR 3 from the list) LG BSA18IBE Inverter V Split AC (1.5 Ton, White, Copper) OR Daikin 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC (FTKH50RRV). Power input is 1460 W LG & 3600 W for daikin model. considering all other features (service Staying @bangalore) please suggest me LG or Daikin? Thanks in advance.

    • Both LG and Daikin Inverter ACs are good. The LG Inverter AC comes with Dust and Anti-Bacterial filters that will be useful for people living in Cities as there will be a lot of dust pollution. I have heard that LG and Samsung offers better support as they have more service centers across the country.

  52. Sir, I am living in Ahmedabad.Sir, I want to install 2 ton split ac inside hall common dining and kitchen about 300 sq ft area.Some wall faces direct sunlight and very hot inside particularly in this year 2017 please suggest me first about installed capacity of a.c then whether inverter split a.c or normal split a.c then the brand of a.c considering the very hot place in Ahmedabad city.

    • Have a look at Samsung 2 Ton Inverter Split AC (AR24MV3HETS) and LG 2 Ton Dual Inverter Split AC (JS-Q24BPXA). The Price of the models will be a little bit high. But, the power consumption will be low when compared with normal split Air Conditioners.

      2 Ton Inverter AC is best suited for Large Hall, Common Dining. The LG Dual Inverter 2 Ton AC comes with 10 Years warranty on the compressor, and the Himalaya cool technology will give you instant cooling. All the models I have mentioned in above post are also available in 2 Ton capacity. Please check them.

  53. Hi I want to buy an AC . My bedroom is 180 sqft and the windows directy face the rising sun. I want to buy an 1.5 ton but my neighbours said 1.2 ton would be okay. Please suggest the right tonnage and also some gud inverter ACs .

    • For 180 sq ft room + Sunlight facing the windows, You need a 1.5 Ton Split AC for cooling the room efficiently. Opt for an Inverter AC. The initial investment will be a little bit high. But it is worth it. You will save a lot on electricity bills.

        • I have mentioned all the top models in the above post. Please check them. LG and Samsung provide good support. If you are living in a polluted environment with high traffic, make sure you buy a model that comes with dust and Anti-Bacterial filters. I have provided the links to all the models above. Customer care numbers are also listed on the product page. Just call them to find the installation and service details.

          • Help me make a choice between Carrier 1.5 Ton Inverter (4 Star) Split AC – White (18K Superia Inverter Split AC 4i-CO – CACI18SU4I1, Copper Condenser) and Godrej 1.5 Ton Inverter (3 Star) Split AC – White (GSC 18 MINV 3 RWPM, Copper Condenser)

  54. My bedroom is 110 sq ft and i live on 3rd floor and terrace above my flat. The room becomes very hot due to the terrace. Please suggest if i should but 1 ton or 1.5 ton.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Normally 1 Ton AC is good enough for 110 sq ft room. As you mentioned that you live on the 3rd floor and the room heats up, It will be better to opt for 1.5 Ton Split AC. If your usage of the Air conditioner is high, get an Inverter AC.

      • I want to buy inverter ac only. so i believe i will have to get 1.5 inverter ac. Is Hyundai 1.5 ton inverter ac good ?

        • Considering the Price Tag, the Hyundai 1.5 ton inverter ac offers excellent value for your money. It comes with a copper condenser and an evaporator with hydrophilic fins. So, there will be no dust and water accumulation.

          Environment-friendly R-410A refrigerant is equipped with this AC. This Hyundai Inverter AC comes with all the required filters to keep the Air clean. Value for money product.

  55. I am looking for power efficient/long lasting/low maintainance AC for my master bedroom of 12×12 sft. My is only during night hours and 10-12hrs during weekends. South wall of the room is exposed to direct sunlight and AC provision is provided to same wall, underneath to that a big window is located. Also, what is the difference between aluminium and copper condenser and which is more efficient and low maintenance. I heard from the friend that inverter AC do slow cooling and high on maintenance. Please advice the best AC for my requirement and would I get best price and deals online vs offline stores.

    • 1.5 Ton Air Conditioner is required for 144 sq ft master bedroom. The copper coil is costlier when compared with the Aluminum coil. The copper coil can be repaired easily. In most cases, if there is damage to the Aluminum coil, It has to be replaced.

      Most of the Top Brands use both Copper and Aluminum in their Air Conditioners. Now, technology is advanced, and these manufacturers are applying an anti-corrosive coating and other techniques like Blue Fin condensers, multi-Jet, Multi-Channel Technology to prevent the coil corrosion.

      So, No matter the coil type, you have to opt for an AC that provides Anti-Corrosion technique to the coils.

      The inverter is advanced technology that is used not only in ACS but also in Refrigerators, Washing Machines to improve efficiency and Energy savings. Inverter ACs provide constant cooling which is not possible in normal split ACs.

      Have a look at the video at the end of this post to know in-depth details 🙂

      • Hi Chaitanya, thanks for your prompt response. Can you suggest which brand and model I can buy considering many things available in the market. Is it good to buy online or offline store.

  56. Iam living in Ahmedabad and I stay in First Floor and have four more floors above my floor. My Room size is 16×12, and I am looking for power efficient/long lasting/low maintainance one and I feel I need to go with Inverter AC so can you please suggest the tonnage and which brand will be best suit for my room . normally our consumption of AC is 16hr

    • For 16 hours usage, It will be much better to opt for an Inverter AC. Even though the price of the Inverter ACs is a little bit on the higher side, In the long run, you will be saving a lot of bucks on the electricity bill. 1.5 Ton AC is required for 16 x 12 (192 sq ft) room size. If you are living in a Heavy Traffic environment, opt for an AC that comes with Dust, Anti-Bacterial filters. Just have a look at the models I have mentioned above.

    • Have a look at Daikin Multi-Split Air Conditioners. You can connect up to 5 indoor units to a single Outdoor Unit. The Multi-Split Air Conditioners are not available online. 1 Ton Split AC indoor units will be suitable for 120 sq ft rooms. If the usage of ACs is high or sunlight enters the room, the capacity required has to be increased by up to 0.5 T.

      LG Also provides good support for Multi-Split Air conditioners.

  57. Hello sir, please suggest me some best inverter ACs..my shop is 600 sq ft…1.5 or 2 tonn , 5 star AC..in my city, the dealer is having LLoyd and Samsung brand…please help

    • 2 Ton AC or Multiple Air Conditioners are required for such large place of 600 sq ft. 1.5 Ton AC is suitable only for Master Bedrooms up to 200 sq.ft. Have a look at the SAMSUNG 2 Ton Inverter Split AC – White (AR24KV5NBWK). The Price of the product is high. But, the electricity consumption will be low when compared with other 5 Star Split ACs.

  58. Iam living in Hyderabad and I stay in First Floor and have two more floors above my floor. My Room size is 13X9, and I am looking for power efficient/long lasting/low maintainance one and I feel I need to go with Inverter AC so can you please suggest the tonnage and which brand will be best suit for my room.

    • 1 Ton AC is required for 10 x 10 ft. Room and 1.5 Ton for 10 x 15 ft. room. If your room has large windows or Sunlight falls directly on your Walls, you need a 1.5 Ton Air Conditioner.

      If your usage of the AC is high, It will be much better to Opt for Inverter AC as they save more energy than normal 5 Star rated Split ACs.

      After doing a lot of research, I have listed the Top Inverter Split AC models in the above list. If you are living in a place where there are Traffic and Dust, opt for an AC that comes with Dust and Anti-Bacterial filters.

      • Thank you Chaitanya for your reply :-). Sunlight doesnt fall directly on the walls and my room area comes closure to 1300ft. so do I need to go for 1 ton or 1.5ton.

        • Normally, 1 Ton AC is enough for rooms up to 120 sq.ft. As you are living in 1st Floor and Sunlight don’t reach your room, 1 Ton Split AC will do the job. Also, the temperatures in Hyderabad are not too high when compared with Costal Areas in AP.

  59. hi, thank you for your informative post. My query is regarding the long term maintenance of inverter acs. A samsung service representative adviced against buying an inverter ac, according to him the electronic components of these acs are prone to disrepair, often within 2-3 years and cost much more to repair and replace. can you tell me if this is true.

    • The Local Service representative Personnel doesn’t have much technical knowledge about the Air Conditioners. All the care is to sell the product to the customer. The Inverter ACs have shifting speed motors, and they run according to the requirement. So, the consumption of electricity will be low and also the Life-Span will be more. All the Top AC brands are providing up to 5 Years Warranty on the Compressor.

      Please note that the Inverter Technology is not only used in AC’s but also in other Large Appliances like Washing Machines and Refrigerators.

  60. I am staying in Mumbai. My requirement is @ 1.5 T.(inverter)
    Which brand would you suggest which has air filters, anti corrosive coating, bluefin tech.
    Hitachi or Diakin or any other?

    • Both Hitachi and Daikin are Good brands and offer similar features. I have included both the models in the above list, they come with a copper condenser and Anti-corrosive coating. But, the Daikin 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC – White (FTKH50RRV) comes with Dust and Anti-Bacterial filters that are missing in the Hitachi Inverter AC. Make sure that you opt for the brand that provides good service at your place.

  61. Hi,
    What are your reviews for lloyd 1 ton split inverter ac?

    Can you please provide your input? that we should go to LLoyd AC or not?

    • The lloyd Inverter comes with features like Dust filter, Auto Restart, On-Off Timer, Dehumidification. The Refrigerant used is R410A and the Indoor Unit of the lloyd Inverter Split AC doesn’t make much noise. Rotary Compressor is used in this model and the 1 Ton AC is good enough for Small Bedrooms up to 120 sq ft.

  62. Iam interested to buy dikin but my mechanic suggests that daikin contains R32 gas and it is flammable.can u plz explain about gasses and which one is best

    • R-32 is a new generation refrigerant that reduces electricity consumption up to 10% when compared to R-22. The R-32 refrigerant also has lower environmental impact and ozone depletion potential of zero.

      The Gas (Butane – Propane) used in LPG Cylinders is also highly flammable. But, it is used in kitchen, hotels all around the world.

      R-32 is mildly flammable. It has been more than four years since the Japanese company Daikin has introduced R-32 in Air Conditioners. Please note that No refrigerant is 100% safe. I have not heard or read any burning accidents due to Daikin ACs.

  63. i would like to purchase1.5 ton invertor 5star split ac.but i m confused.plz sujjest me which is the best ?in which i will get all common facilities/features.also plz confirm the price.thnks.

    • Normally, Inverter Air Conditioners do not have Star ratings, and they are efficient than Split ACs. As of now, Amazon and Flipkart are providing discounts and Free Installations on ACs during the summer sale. So, the price will vary. I have also provided links to the Top models above. You can check the current price by visiting the above links. Anti – Corrosive coating, Turbo mode, Auto-restart, Temperature display, Humidifier are some of the features that you should look in an AC. Dust, bacteria filters are required if you live in a heavy traffic place.

  64. My room is 110sqft only one wall prone to sunlight after 2pm.plj suggest tonnage.Brand with affordable pricing and good aftersale service.3star or 5 star which one to prefer.I would prefer inverter AC copper or aluminium anti corrosive.memory is basic concern with minimum display.Please suggest one.

    • Normally 1 Ton Inverter Split AC is enough for 110 sq ft room. In case you are living in a Hot Place and the temperature is high, you need constant running of the AC. So, It will be much better if you opt for Inverter AC. I have mentioned the Top Inverter ACs in the above list. All the above models are also available with 1 Ton. If you have any other queries, please mention. I will try to answer.

  65. I need a 1 tonne AC, 5 stars and copper condensor, inverter and all the latest features for my bedroom. Could you please help me.

    • Most of the Inverter AC’s don’t have Star ratings. Now, they are providing the ratings because the customers are asking for the ratings. But, the Inverter ACs are definitely most efficient than the normal split ACs. A 3 Star rated Inverter AC is more power saving and efficient than a 5 star rated normal split AC.

  66. want to buy a/c.with invertor tech.I live in 5th floor. room size 150 appr.pls suggest best in 1.5 tone. lives in Nagpur

    • You need a 1.5 Ton Split AC for a room size of 150 sq ft. Inverter AC are more efficient and you can use them for longer periods and there will be at a constant temperature that is pre-set by you. Also, the Inverter AC don’t make much noise. Have a look at LG BSA18IBE, Blue Star 3CNHW18CAF/U. I have mentioned the top models in the above list. Have a look at them and select the model according to your requirements. No matter the coil type is copper or Aluminum, both will corrode. You have to opt for a brand that provides corrosion resistant coating for the coils.

  67. Pls confirm what is the difference between Voltas 123V MY 1 Ton inverter AC and Voltas DC Inverter 12V DY Inverter Split AC (1 Ton, White, Copper).

    Also confirm the price of both.

  68. I need to buy Voltas 1 ton inverter ac for my 120sq ft bedroom. Sun light comes to my bedroom and windows are also broad. Almost half of one side wall is open. Please confirm if it is good to purchase voltas 1 ton inverter ac.

    • The Voltas 1 Ton Inverter AC that I have mentioned above is good enough for a 120sq ft bedroom. Just block the sunlight and cover the windows with curtains. Also, make sure you keep your room clean.

    • Have a look at the LG’s Dual Cool Inverter
      2 Ton Split AC. It comes with Monsoon comfort technology and energy savings up to 35%. Features include Anti Bacteria Filter, Dust Filter, and Dehumidification. The Condenser coil is Aluminium, but there is Anti-Corrosion coating.

      Samsung (AR24KV5NBWK), 2 Ton Inverter Split, is also a good option and comes with all the required features like Anti-Dust & Bacterial filters, Protection against voltage drops. Also, the product comes with ten-year warranty on Digital Inverter Compressor.

  69. Thank you so much for ur immediate response..i need to have copper condensor,blue fin coating ,purification filters,eco friendly refrigerant and less powe consumption(here it is 7Rs/- per unit) inveter ac i saw bluestar CHNW12CAF model is good. Do u find any models is good in Hitachi or daikan with 1 ton?? pls give ur valuable input..

    • Bluefin condensers are anti-corrosive and beneficial for (AC’s) people living near to the coast or where the humidity is high.

      Bluestar CHNW12CAF Inverter AC is good. It comes with Bluefin condenser. Also, there are Anti-Bacterial, Activated Carbon, and other dust filters. It also has auto-restart and memory backup features that are useful in case there is a power cut.

      Also, Have a look at Hitachi RAU312EWEAS, Daikin FTKP35QRV16 models.

      No matter Copper or Aluminum, both can corrode, you need an Anti-Corrosive coating or other technique like Bluefin Condenser.

    • I Ton Inverter AC is mostly suited for Small Bedrooms sized up to 120 sq ft. The Onida Inverter AC comes with a Copper Condenser and the cooling capacity is 4100W. But, there are no Dust, Anti-Bacteria Filters. Make sure dust and Sunlight does not enter the room in which the AC will be installed.

  70. Hi..i need to buy inverter ac for my bedroom which is 100sqt also we are living in 2nd floor and no floor above us..and having a quite big window. Is 1ton enough for that room? Only voltas is having 1ton in the above list. Can we buy 1ton from above mentioned brands.Please give suggestions..

    • I Ton Inverter AC is good for 100 sq ft Room. Make sure you cover that Window with a thick curtain, so sunlight does not enter the room during the day time. Make sure, you open the doors in the early morning so there will be some fresh air flow. All the models I have mentioned above are also available with 1 Ton Capacity. Daikin, Hitachi, LG, Voltas are some of the top brands.

      If you have any other queries, post them below and I’ll try to answer them. It will be much better if you grow some potted plants on the top of your home.

    • Inverter AC’s are more efficient and power saving than the Normal Split AC. I have already mentioned the top Inverter ACs in the above post. Have a look at them and select the one according to your requirements. 1 Ton AC is suitable for Small Bedrooms and 1.5 Ton is required for Master Bedrooms. If you are on the Top Floor and Sun Light fall directly, you have to opt for an Inverter AC since the usage will be high.
