For a lot of Indian metros, including typically hot cities like Mumbai, residents have enjoyed a fairly long and happy cold spell. However, day temperatures are already starting to climb. As we put our cardigans away, many of us are considering getting a new AC or else, even more exciting, getting our first AC.
But what brand is the best for buying AC? That too, ‘buying 1 ton AC’ which will cover a good amount of surface area. We are here to help—
Whether you are a first-time buyer, or you are looking to upgrade, or even if you are simply looking to replace your existing model because it has done its time, here is a list of potential options for a 100 sq. foot to 200 sq. foot room, namely, a collection of 1 ton AC.
A few things to keep in mind. Note that if your room is larger, you might need to opt for an AC with a higher tonnage, in order to ensure sufficient cooling. Check the BEE rating (represented by tags such as 3-star, 4-star and 5-star) to get a good idea of how energy efficient your AC will actually be. You can additionally check the air-conditioner’s ISEER rating. ISEER stands for Indian Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. You may also check the AC’s decibel levels.
