Witht he advent of Inverter technology we can reduce our electricity bills considerably. The common misconception is that inverter models cost a lot, hence we thought to give a preview of some of the inverter models which are pocket friendly.

You can see list of our Carrier, Panasonic, Videocon: 1 Ton Split ACs below, perform Side-by-Side comparison. If you need further help, do have a look at Conzumr Guides and Tips. Alternatively you can view all Air Conditioner to choose your own favourites.


An air conditioner is basically a fridge without the insulated box. A fridge only cools the space inside it, but an air conditioner cools the room outside.

There are many features to look for while buying an ac like type of ac inverter or non-inverter, hot cold feature, tonnage, energy efficient class, various functions, air swing direction etc


Panasonic CS-KC12PKY

1 Ton Split Air Conditioner (White)

  • Moisture removal function
  • LCD remote, timer, up and down air circulation
  • Soft dry operation mode
  • 3520 W cooling capacity, 3.38 COP, 12,000 Btu/hr
  • Videocon VSZ33.WV1

    1 Ton AC with Vitamin C Filter

    When you set the air conditioner in AUTO mode, it will automatically select cooling, heating(cooling/heating models only), or fan only operation depending on set temperature and the room temperature.The air conditioner will control room temperature automatically to the temperature point you set. If you feel uncomfortable in the AUTO mode, you can set your desired temperature.

    Videocon presents a new range of Air Conditioners with MPCS Multi Point Cooling System. This new generation technology injects refrigerant at multiple points, to introduce faster circulation of refrigerant, leading to faster cooling. This unique feature also optimizes power consumption to give you great savings.
  • Multi Point Cooling System (MPCS)
  • Vitamin C Filter
  • Ag+ Silver Ion Filter
  • Blue Fin Evaporator
  • Carrier Midea Superia 42KGN-012S

    A ton is a measurement of heat transfer. One ton is equal to 12,000 BTU's(British thermal unit) per hour. It is derived from the amount of energy that it takes to melt one ton of ice in a twenty four hour period.

    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

    Superia 42KGN-012S : R22

    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.
