Summer is knocking at the door and we can already feel the wrath of the midday sun. It’s time to bring home an AC to beat the heat, or else, be prepared to get soaked in sweat. Not many people can afford a central air conditioner in their home. For most Indian consumers a window air conditioner machine is the most affordable option.

Window ACs are not only an affordable cooling option, they are energy efficient too. These machines (aka units) fit beautifully inside your window, and a wide range of models of various shapes and sizes are available to cool rooms of all sizes.

But why a window air conditioner?

Here is a list of benefits you get from a window air conditioner:

1. Low Cost

Window air conditioners are the cheapest cooling solution available in the market. Their price is really low and you don’t get an eye-popping bill, nerve wracking energy-bill every month.

The price of a window AC depends on the brand, tonnage capacity and the features associated with the device . Their price can be as low as 18,000 INR, and as high as 50,000 INR. But don’t worry, you can always buy a decent unit paying around 25,000 INR.

The rule of thumb is that a bigger room needs a unit with higher tonnage or BTU capacity. A 1 tonne AC is enough to cool a room of 100 sq. feet. But remember that there is something called ‘heat load’. Heat load is impacted by the number of electrical appliances in the room, exposure of the room to direct sunlight, average occupancy of the room in terms of number of people, and the number of doors and windows in the room. If the heat load is too much you decide accordingly. ACs with higher BTU capacities obviously cost more.

Brands

From LG to Godrej, there are dozens of manufacturers out there, and they all offer quality products, with some being better than others. To give you a place to start and help you select the right brand, in this article, we have listed only the top brands that you can trust. Try the ACs given in the list and you will not regret.

Features

Modern window air conditioners come with myriads of features, and to you some of those features may be like “not really useful’. But you will love most of them and they are a necessity for you. Remember that these features will range from unit to unit and brand to brand, and more features means higher price range.

Having said that, the initial cost of a window air conditioner is still going to be relatively low compared to the popular split air conditioners.

Comparatively Low Electricity Bill

According to experts, this is the most attractive benefit of having a window air conditioner at home. Indeed, these machines keep your living room comparatively cool without making you spend a lot of money on electricity bills. For middle class Indian consumers window ACs are just the perfect option for summer.

The majority of window air conditioners have an attractive energy efficiency ratio (EER). You will be amazed when you will see how much they cool compared to how much energy they require to run. To save more on electricity bills, buy a window unit with a high EER rating(given in number of stars). You must check the energy star rating offered by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) on the unit you intend to purchase. More BEE stars means less electricity consumption. If possible, bring home a 5 star window AC.

Easy to Install

Another attraction is the easy installation process. It’s a rather straight-forward process and something that can be easily accomplished without much experience or expertise. There is no need to bore the wall and you may need another person to help you follow the step-by-step instructions given in the user’s manual. You may hire someone to do the installation for you, but you can save a lot of money if you can do it yourself.

Doesn’t Take Up Floor Space

Since they are designed to fit inside a window,a window AC doesn’t occupy your living space. This benefit makes them ideal for small houses or rooms with very limited living space. Most of the body of a window air conditioner remains outside the room, and therefore does not interfere with the activities in the room.

Useful in summer, as well as in winter

Window air conditioners can do more than just cool down your room; they can heat it up too.. You can always buy a window unit that can do both heating and cooling for your room. This dual-function makes it attractive to most Indian consumers because, they have a viable way to cut your energy bills all year long. Whether you’re in the height of summer heat or the depths of a winter freeze, you will always have control of the temperature in your home without having to spend an arm and a leg. And there are also some window air conditioners that double as an air purifier. These units typically come with anti-microbial or HEPA filters to help reduce odors, allergens, and other airborne particles that can have a negative effect on your indoor air quality. 

More Portable

Comaparatively window ACs are more portable that split  ACs, but this doesn’t mean that you can carry it from room to room like a table fan. It just means that window air conditioners are perfect for non-permanent residences as  they can be reinstalled anywhere there is a window.
