5 Tips To Keep In Mind When Shopping For An Ac

If you are updating your house with electronics and appliances that add comfort, take some time to select the right AC too. There are several options available in the market, so you are sure to find a model that suits your budget and preferences. You can make this purchase more affordable by shopping from the Bajaj Finserv EMI Network.

Instead of choosing a model in an ad-hoc manner, take a look at the factors that you must pay close attention to before purchasing an AC.



Following this guide will ensure that you buy a model that matches your needs.


  1. Energy rating

The more you utilise your AC, the higher your electricity bill will be. So, to keep electricity consumption under check, pay attention to the AC’s energy rating before purchasing it. This rating ranges from 1 to 5 stars. An AC that has a 5-star rating consumes the least energy, but models with a 3- or 4-star rating are good too. Although ACs with a 4- or 5-star rating are more expensive, they work out to be more economical in the long run.


  1. AC capacity and size of the room

ACs are of varying capacity, often ranging from 0.5 ton to 2 or 2.5 tons. The higher the tonnage, the more efficient the cooling will be. However, before selecting the tonnage, it is important to consider the size of your room. While ACs with higher tonnage are ideal for big rooms, lower capacity ACs are perfect for smaller rooms. Also, the higher the tonnage, the more electricity the AC will consume. So, select its capacity wisely.


  1. Noise levels

The compressor of any AC will go on and go off regularly. This can cause a lot of noise during operation. So, for minimal disturbance, it is important to pick an AC that offers you quiet, noise-free operation. This will ensure a good night’s rest too.


  1. Type of AC

There are various types of ACs available in the market such as split, split inverter and window ACs. There are major differences between inverter ACs and regular ACs. Typically, the differences lie in power consumption, compressor performance, noise levels, etc. So, it is important to examine your needs and choose a type that matches them. If budget is a concern, a regular split or window AC will be more affordable, as compared to a split inverter AC.


  1. Brand and after-sales service

Every brand is has its own USP. While this is important, its reputation with regards to durability of its air conditioners and after-sales service is equally crucial. If the brand’s performance relating to these two aspects is sub-par, you will find it bothersome to tend to repairs and maintenance, and may end up spending a fortune on parts that fail frequently.


Once you have considered these factors and wish to buy the AC of your choice, you can easily check your pre-approved offer from Bajaj Finserv by entering your name and mobile number. Once you know the loan limit that you qualify for, you can go ahead and complete your purchase at a partner store on the EMI Network.
