7 Things to Consider Before Buying an AC In 2021
It’s that time of the year when the temperatures are soaring and the scorching heat is beginning to take a toll on our lives. While the daily median temperatures are on a steady rise, having a quality air conditioner is absolutely necessary as we are spending maximum time at home nowadays owing to the global pandemic.
However, like any other product or gadget, the market is flooded with plenty of options to choose from, and for a customer with no prior experience, selecting the right air conditioner can prove to be a herculean task.
Air conditioners vary in a lot of factors such as cost, energy efficiency, and cooling capacity. With the introduction of new technologies, healthcare benefits, and smart advancements in energy efficiency, consumers are treated to multiple features and enhancements which makes the buying decision all the more critical.
Here are 7 things you need to keep in mind while purchasing a new 1 ton ac :
- Select the type of Air-conditioner
Depending on your requirement, budget and space available, you can either go for a Window AC, Split AC or portable AC. Window AC’s are relatively easier to install and are easy on the pocket too.
The Blue Star window 1.5 ton AC at a price of Rs 28490 comes with a virus deactivation technology, Turbo cool feature, air purification and high energy efficiency rotary compressor which makes it a compelling buy in the budget segment.
When compared to windows, Split AC’s provide better air distribution, faster cooling, more energy efficiency and better aesthetic appeal.
- Choose the AC capacity based on the room size
The size/capacity of the AC should be as per the size of your room. Tonnage refers to the cooling capacity of the air conditioning system and is essential to choose an air conditioner with the right tonnage according to the size of your room. For rooms in the range of 100-120 sq.ft, a 1-ton AC is more than enough.
However, for rooms larger than that, a 1.5-ton AC is better suited to ensure effective cooling. Cooling is also impacted by the amount of sunlight, the number of persons in the room, the level of the house and many other factors which should be considered.
Blue star, one of the most reliable AC brands in India, comes with a wide option of 1.5 ton AC from the budget to the higher price segment.
- Opt for one that’s improves air quality
Air pollution is on the rise and is a major concern in most metropolitan cities today. While the primary purpose of an air-conditioner is cooling, wouldn’t you love one which also gives you the benefit of pure and pristine air to breathe in? Today many air-conditioners double up as air purifiers and come with advanced Virus-killing technology and advanced filters.
For instance, the 5 Star inverter AC range from Blue Start incorporates Virus Deactivation Technology that comes with a special filter which destroys 99.9% viruses including the SAR- Cov 2 (the virus that causes COVID 19) and eliminates 99.999% bacteria.
- Look for energy efficiency
With power tariffs on the rise, you wouldn’t want to burn a hole in your pocket every month with your monthly electricity bill. Hence energy efficiency is something which cannot be overlooked while purchasing an AC. The efficiency of an air-conditioner is best measured by its Star rating. A 5-star rating is always preferred since it translates into tremendous energy savings.
The Blue Star 1.5 Ton 5 Star Inverter Split AC (IC518DBTX) comes with a 5-star rating at a discounted price of Rs 38990 providing best-in-class cooling and features while cutting back on your electricity bill.
- Go for advanced cooling technology
Since the primary purpose of an air-conditioner is cooling, you would assume that all air-conditioners by default come with advanced cooling features. However that’s not true! Inverter air conditioners are more superior in ensuring a constant room temperature, regulated speed while also being far more energy efficient.
Blue Star’s Inverter ACs with Precision Cooling Technology have advanced microprocessor-based controls designed to ensure perfectly comfortable indoor room conditions and temperature setting in decimals, as precisely as 0.5ºC so that you can enjoy comfort cooling even during the hottest months.
- Choose the one with high-end features
AC manufacturers also include several other features to the ACs such as auto clean, sleep timer, smart control which allows you to control the AC from your smartphone.
Another magnificent feature that is gaining importance is the Voice Command Technology.

Smart home capability is another feature that is gaining importance since it helps you to seamlessly integrate with other smart devices and manage cooling even remotely.
