Air conditioners have now become a necessity but the AC bill that follows makes it feel more like a luxury. The only way to ease the bill is to make sure you pick an energy efficient AC in the first place.
You must look at the Energy Efficient Ratio (EER) of an air conditioner as this represents the amount of cooling the unit provides per watt of electricity that it consumes. The star rating you see on a machine is based on the EER of the air conditioner set by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). The more the stars the better will be its saving capacity. This also means that such machines will be more expensive than the ones with less or no stars. But to save later, you must be ready to make a good investment.
Inverter ACs are a new kind of machines that run off inverter technology. These are designed in such a way that they can save anywhere between 30 to 50 percent of electricity in comparison to a regular AC. These ACs too are expensive but the benefits make it worth your while.
These are the two kinds of features you need to consider when looking for a power-saving machine. Here are a few more things to consider when buying an air conditioner. Once you make up your mind about what capacity or style best fits your room, here are a few to pick from.
