    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. R-410 A refrigerant is better in terms of ‘global warming’, safe and more energy efficient.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Inverter AC: An inverter air conditioner consumes much less electricity as compared to usual air conditioning unit because of its mode of operation. 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
    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.
