Star rating has become an increasingly significant consideration when buying an air conditioner, as people become more aware of its long-term impact on electricity bills. Buyers have also become more concerned with energy efficiency due to an increased level of environmental consciousness. People feel genuine guilt when they think about their carbon footprint. They want to live more sustainable lifestyles. It has become a lot more common today to consider what one can do to reduce their own personal impact on the environment.
Of course, the fact that going green is often more cost-effective in the long run, possibly acts as a catalyst to the whole movement. With summer fast approaching, many of us are beginning our research on possibly getting a new air conditioner or upgrading our old AC. We have rounded up some of the best ACs in India that boast 3 star to 5-star BEE ratings. For this discussion, we are going to look at 1.5 ton split ACs and the best window AC in India.

1. Blue Star 3W18GBT 1.5 ton 3-star Window AC
Some of the features that are touted as USPs for this 1.5-ton window AC include the fact that it uses R32, one of the most common refrigerants used, that is said to be eco-friendly. Others include its four cooling modes, its ‘High Energy Efficiency Rotary Compressor’, and its auto restart feature.
2. LG JW-Q18WUZA 1.5 ton 5-star Window AC
Marketed for its best-in-class energy efficiency among 1.5-ton window ACs, this model is also positioned for its durability. It uses copper wiring, which is fairly dust-proof and more rust-resistant. Besides using inverter technology, this LG AC’s key features include a dual inverter, four-way air-circulation, split-AC style LED display, and voice control via Alexa and Google Assistant. This AC too uses R32 as its refrigerant.
1. Voltas 183VCZS 1.5 ton 3-star Split AC
This AC is also being promoted on the basis of its copper condenser coil — among other features — which according to the manufacturer, requires less maintenance and also offers better cooling. The AC comes with an inverter that is set up to be anti-bacterial and dust-resistant which makes it the best 1.5 ton split AC . Other key features include its variable speed compressor, which adjusts power based on the heat load.
2. Daikin ATL35TV16W1 1 ton 3-star Split AC
This is one of the few split ACs that are priced under Rs. 30,000, because it is a 1-ton AC, and is therefore suitable for a smaller room, which is perhaps this model’s biggest talking point. In addition, some key features listed include its Power Chill mode and ‘Econo’ Chill mode, which can be selected when a large volume of electrical devices are using the same circuit. This limits the maximum power consumption of the AC.
3. Blue Star IC518DBTU 1.5 ton 5 star split AC
As with a lot of 5-star air conditioners, this model’s USP is its energy efficiency, linked to its 5-star rating. Apart from that, the manufacturer promises fast cooling.
4. Hitachi RSOG518HDEA 1.5 ton 5 star split AC
Besides its energy efficiency, this model is being popularized because of its expandable inverter, which helps in ensuring instant cooling.
As you might have gathered from this list, all the latest and best ACs in India will come with copper wiring, the eco-friendly R32 refrigerant, which allegedly has no ozone depletion potential, and inverter technology.
