Classification

Technology Used
Inverter AC

An inverter air conditioner consumes much less electricity as compared to non-inverter. An inverter AC means that the compressor is powered by a variable speed drive, which enables the compressor to run at a range of speeds from slow to fast, to match the output required. Inverter air conditioners are able to vary their operating capacity. You would be really surprised to find the amount of money you can easily save by making use of this latest technology. When purchasing an inverter air conditioner.

There are different types on Inverter ACs like:

  • DC Inverter AC - Converts AC to DC current and then back into AC current. Due to variable frequency, the compressor motor is able to work at variable speed and hence is more efficient that conventional non-inverter or fixed speed ACS.
  • Inverter Heat Pump - It is an inverter AC which pumps out over 3 times more energy than the traditional heat pumps. It is mainly used in Acs which come with both hot and cold feature
  • 3D Inverter AC - It is an inverter AC which has vents on the side that helps in removing hot air and calling the room faster
  • Multi Inverter (Multi Split) - It is an inverter AC which is used in ACs which support different capacity and style indoor units for one single outdoor unit

Non-Inverter AC

Non inverter or Fixed speed air conditioning deliver a fixed amount of power via a fixed speed. This means the compressor has to stop and start to maintain the desired room temperature. This means that it operates either at full or minimum speed. Switching on this type of unit will start to run on full load thus consuming more power.

Hot Cold Feature
Cooling Only

It is a great option for keeping the home cooled off during the hot summer days.

Hot and Cold

There is only one motor for the fans blowing through the hot coils and cold coils. However, in split system air conditioning, you have two separate motors for the two fans. While this may seem to be a waste of energy, it also means that it is possible to have a different motor speed for the air handling or cooling unit. Thus, in the split system, the air handling motor has a variable speed and usually operates at a lower speed to save on energy costs. The speed can also be adjusted by the user to achieve the desired environment. A final advantage is the ability of a split system to serve as both an air conditioner in the summer months and a heater in the winter. This is accomplished by switching functions at the outside compressor which then functions as a heat pump. Generally, cassettes are provide less heat than is necessary, but they are a useful addition to other systems

Refrigerant

It is a fluid that is used in refrigerators and air-conditioners to remove heat from the inside and throw it out in the atmosphere.

  • R290 - R-290 is a Greenest new hydrocarbon Propane refrigerant which is completely halogen free and hence seems to cause no harm to ozone layer. We have few manufacturers who are using this refrigerant and marketing their models as 7 star. The drawback of this refrigerant is that it is highly flammable and hence need extra security measures which adds to the cost of the air conditioner.
  • R-32 - R-32 efficiently conveys heat, it can reduce electricity consumption up to approximately 10 percent compared to that of air conditioners using refrigerant R-22. R32 is proposed to be used in some ACs which currently uses R410A. It is mildly flammable and has similar performance and operating conditions to R410A. It has a lower global warming potential (GWP) than the commonly used HFCs.
  • R410A - R1410 is the green gas and an environmentally friendly refrigerant which is Non-CFC. That meant in case your system ever leaks, it won't cause any harm to ozone layer. R-410 A refrigerant is better in terms of ‘global warming’, safe and more energy efficient.
  • R22 - R22 is a single hydro-chlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) compound. It has low chlorine content but causes ozone depletion. R22 wont be manufactured from year 2010. Only recycled or remaining stock of R22 can be used.
  • Compressor

    This is a superior type of a compressor and it compresses air in a confined space. These are more compact, operate quietly, built for continuous operation and typically see less maintenance. The down side is the initial costs are higher. For less than 3 ton these are good options as they don't need high duty cycle and have better energy ratings.

    Filter

    Filter helps to keep the environment clean

    Anti-Bacterial Filter

    The anti-bacterial filter keeps you safe and healthy as you breath in only clean, pure air. The titanium apatite photo-catalytic air purifying filter is optional

    BIO Filter

    Bio filter consists of a specialized biological enzyme and Eco filter.The Eco filter catches very small airborne dust particles and neutralities bacteria,fungi and microbes. Biological enzyme kills bacteria by dissolving their cell wall thus eliminating the problem of re-pollution

    Koukin Filter

    Anti-bacterial filter

    Evaporator Fins

    Evaporator fins are located on the evaporator and is function is to t extract heat from the air by thermal energy exchange process that occurs with the surrounding air. Air is blown across the evaporator fins where it is cooled and then sent from the air conditioner through ducts and vents and into various rooms.

    Condensor Fins

    Compressor fins are located on the outdoor portion of an air conditioner near the compressor These fins look like a grill with metal fins all along it. These air conditioner fins are a part of the condenser that assists heat in moving away from the air conditioner which enables faster heat dispensing.

    Anti-corrosion Fin

    The anti corrosion fins ensures that the condenser surface is always free of corrosion and the AC performs like new with longer life.

    Aerodynamic 360 Degree Blower

    The aerodynamic design of the blowers allows the air to flow smoothly through them enabling long air throw and the room cools faster irrespective of the temperature outside.

    6-stage Filtration

    As the name suggests this features enables pure breathing. Polluted air passes through 6 filters: Vitamin-enriching Filter, Activated Carbon Filter, Dust Filter, Nano Filter, Anti-bacterial Filter, and Catechin Filter, to give you the safest air, free of allergens.


    Power and Capacity

    Cooling Capacity

    1 kW = 3412.142 BTU/hr

    Air Flow Rate (H/M/L)

    2 Stage Auto Cleanser

    To prevent the breeding of bacteria inside the unit, the advanced 2 Stage Auto Cleanser makes sure that there is no dust and water inside the unit. The unit first uses condensed water to remove the dust from the evaporator fins. Then it switches to fan-only mode to blow away the wet air.

    Smart Time Guard

    During power cut, this smart feature ensures that whenever the power is restored, there is a 3 min time delay before restarting thecompressor. This helps in protecting the compressor.

    Anti-mildew

    When an air conditioner is in use, condensation may form on the unit's evaporator coils. This moisture from condensation creates the ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow. You can clean off your air conditioner to make the air safer in your home by eliminating sources of allergens, such as mold and mildew spores, and help your air conditioner work better in the process.
