AC Buying Guide –
|The most common three mistakes people make while buying an AC are –|
1. People often buy the wrong AC for a cheaper price. Good brands don’t give discounts on good models in the major season. Only poor ACs are available at heavy discounts and you must avoid them.
2. People often trust their offline negotiation skills more. Every brand launches 6-7 variants of each model & each variant has a price gap of around Rs 5,000. After our research, we realized that the models of ACs we recommended were not available in offline stores. All the models were different.
3. People often skip buying the extended warranty as it seems to be costly. This is the biggest mistake. If the brand honors the warranty then it is good but if it denies the warranty, then it becomes a major loss. Avoid the insurance plans as the appliances require an extended warranty, not life insurance. We recommend Go Warranty. Buy any extended warranty plan to safeguard your appliances.

(6) Window AC
We only recommend non-inverter window AC as inverter window AC is not that useful. The two most amazing options under window AC are-
- Bluestar 1.5 ton 5-star (2022)
- Hitachi 1.5 ton 3-star (2022)
They both are good options. Bluestar has 1.39 tons whereas Hitachi has a 1.47 tons cooling capacity. These fixed-speed compressor ACs come with 100% copper condenser and tubes. Their chemical coating on fins and tube ends prevents them from sediment and salt.
Hitachi AC stands out with its cooling even at 52°C. Bluestar has 3.40 whereas Hitachi has 3.09 ISEER. They both have the same warranty package which is 1 year comprehensive and 5 years warranty on the compressor.
The star labelling i.e 3-star or 5-star doesn’t have much impact on power consumption. You must go for the most lucrative deal. Bluestar AC has one con- it is apt only for rooms up to 160 sq ft.
Hitachi has a better cooling capacity as compared to Bluestar. Now the final choice is yours. As compared to the other ACs of various brands, the Bluestar AC and Hitachi AC stand out under the category of window ACs.
