by Aditi Ahuja A Passionate Blogger Who loves to write

The proportion of Indian households that have air conditioning units is on the rise. As the globe warms due to climate change, and as the disposable income of the average Indian rises, we will notice a favorable trend towards air conditioners in the coming future.


The word split in the split air conditioner comes from the fact that this type of AC is half inside, and half outside. The two parts are connected through a duct pipe, and this pipe is often visible. 


There are a lot of models for split air conditioners in the market today. A quick overview will reveal that the price of a split air conditioner ranges from ₹20,000 to ₹300,000 and above. Therefore, this AC buying guide will help you get a unit that will be the best split air conditioner for your needs. 


Keep the following points in mind when getting a split air conditioner:


  1. Room size. The size of the room is a good starting point, as it will determine how powerfully your unit will need to work to do its job. Therefore, when getting a split AC, keep in mind the area of the room where you will install it. Another factor: how much sunlight the room will receive - is also very important. The greater the exposure to the sun, the more powerful the AC will need to be. 

  2. The number of people. The more the number of people who will spend time in the room, the more powerful the air conditioner would need to be.

  3. Cooling capacity. The cooling capacity of an air conditioner is measured in British Thermal Units(BTU), or tons. 1 ton is equal to about 12,000 BTUs. Buy an AC with a tonnage that will support your usage. 


Energy Efficiency Rating.
A split AC with a higher EER will have a greater upfront cost, but it will reward you with lower electricity bills over time.
