The range of AC in 2021 has been launched. We are talking about Nokia AC and LG AC 2021 ranges. But before starting, we’d like to tell you some important things about AC, so that you do not make an error while buying one. By the end of the article, you will be an expert in terms of buying an AC in 2021. You will know which AC in 2021 will be suitable for your home or office.
If your room is 125sqft then you must buy a 1 ton AC. If it is 125sqft-200sqft then you must go for a 1.5 ton AC. And for a room between 200sqft-300sqft, one must buy a 2 ton AC. Do not get mislead by shopkeepers or websites.
It is a myth that an Inverter AC will reduce your electricity bill to half. Using your inverter AC for 6 hours a day every day results in up to 30% less electricity consumption. And that’s it.
Make sure you check the noise levels along with the tons. You must know the noise levels of your AC before buying one. An AC with noise levels between 30dB-45dB is absolutely right. Avoid an AC with louder noise levels.
It is important to know the Indian Season Energy Efficiency Ratio (ISEER), known as star-rating in normal words. This shows the power consumption of an AC. These ratings change every two years. The same AC with a 4-star rating in 2019 will have a 3-star rating in 2021. A model kept in a shop but produced earlier will have a 4-star rating according to its manufacturing time. Check this carefully before you buy an AC.
Every brand has there installation charges varying between INR 1,000- INR 2,000. But apart from this, you will have to pay for copper wires, stabilizers and other fitting charges. Add INR 5,000 to the actual cost of AC because that will be your total cost of AC.
LG 5-Star Inverter AC – AC IN 2021
LG 5-star inverter AC in 2021 is a 1.45 ton AC but it is called a 1.5 ton AC. R32 gas, which is an eco-friendly gas, has been used in the compressor.
This AC works on dual inverter technology. A dual rotary compressor has been used. It has 5 in 1 convertible cooling which means that it will adjust the cooling according to the number of people and weather with 1 button only. 100% copper coils are used with ocean black protection (just the black paint on copper) which prevents it from salt, sediments and dirt. The fins are made of Aluminum alloy with ocean black protection, which is good for people in coastal areas.
Another good thing is the use of Hi-Grooved copper that transfers the heat faster. Just like Nokia, LG also promises stabilizer free operation, but one must use a stabilizer with every AC. There are many other features like Low Gas detection and a Smart diagnosis system. This feature makes this AC smart despite the fact that it does not have a WIFI.
The ISEER rating of this LG AC in 2021 is 4.73. Its total yearly electricity consumption is 920 units and the noise level is 31dB.

The installation service of LG is very poor. Many people have complained about the same. This is the only con in this AC in 2021. Otherwise, there is no problem with the thickness of copper or its compressors. The maintenance of this AC is very low, its electricity consumption is low and it has low noise levels. This makes this AC amazing within this budget.
NOTE- Make sure you buy the 2021 model of LG AC from the offline market. The 2020 model of LG AC has the same model number, but the 2021 model is better than the 2020 model.
Nokia Triple Inverter Smart AC– AC IN 2021
Nokia AC in 2021 is a 1.46 ton AC but it is called a 1.5 ton AC. R32 gas, which is an eco-friendly gas, has been used in the compressor. It is a 5-star rated AC in 2021. It comes with Intelligent Motion Sensors which will switch on/off the AC according to your movement. This will save electricity. It comes with 4 in 1 Adjustable Tonnage which means that a 2 tons AC can be adjusted to 1.5 tons and 1.5 tons AC can be adjusted to 1 ton AC. This is a good feature to have in an AC in 2021 as it directly saves electricity. Nokia AC has an Anti-Microbial Ionizer and an Assorted 6 in 1 Filter, all in all, it has a good filter. Do not be impressed by the fancy names. It is a WIFI AC (smart AC in 2021) and apart from a remote, you get a mobile app that is available on android phones.
“One can control all the features through this app. It is not so smooth but it has a feature of customized profiles. This means that 2 different members can make different profiles based on their settings.”
If you switch on the AC using your profile, then the cooling will be according to those settings. It comes with Anti-Corrosive Blue Fin technology on the outside of the condenser. A bluefin coating is done over it and those are made of an Aluminum alloy. This will prevent the fins from salt, sediment or corrosion.
Nokia also recommends self-cleaning technology. You must concentrate on the fact that its ISEER rating is 4.7 and the annual power consumption is 1009 units per year. Its noise level is 38dB.
|SPECIFICATIONS||• Triple Inverter Technology • Intelligent Motion Sensors • 4-in-1 Adjustable Tonnage • Anti-microbial Ionizer • Assorted 6-in-1 Filters • Remote on Phone • Customized Profiles • Self-cleaning Technology • Anti-Corrosive Blue Fin Technology (Aluminium Alloy)|
|ISEER/ POWER CONSUMPTION||4.7 and 1009 Units Per Year|
|PRICE||36,000 for 3 Star 40,000 for 5 Star + 1,600 Installation|
|WARRANTY||1 Year Comprehensve on AC 5 Years on Compressor.|

The coils used are not 100% copper coils. This is both a good and a bad thing. The bad thing is that copper coils transfer the heat faster. And it is a good thing because, in coastal areas, salt and sediments settle faster on copper. This ruptures the coils and you have to change their time and again. A copper alloy stops the salts and sediments from settling on the coil and this is why bluefin technology is used over it.
This AC has a Backlit remote and a hidden LED display, which is a premium feature to have. The biggest pro is that this AC has been manufactured by Panasonic in India. The same Panasonic models are available which are INR 6,000 to INR 7,000 costlier. These are very successful models and so will be LG AC.
