The power demand for cooling home appliances will rise as the temperature is high. During the summers, an electrified household in Delhi consumes an average of 250-270 units or kWh of electricity per month, according to data shared by the Central Electricity Authority (CEA), according to Shashi Arora, CEO of Lloyd.
“The Indian Meteorological Department recently predicted an above-normal maximum temperature for the March-May season. This means that air conditioner demand will increase. Choosing the best air conditioner is the way to go if you want to save money on energy. It lowers the monthly energy bills significantly,” he said.
Innovative features of air conditioners
The residential air conditioning demand in India is expected to be around 7-7.5 million units per year. Since people are spending more time at home these days, they have realized the importance of upgrading their technologies.
Air conditioning with inverter technology, thanks to technical advancements, help retain room temperature by using less fuel, based on the room’s insulation from external hot air.
Through monitoring the motor speed and compressor, also aids in the reduction of pointless air conditioner activities. Inverter air conditioners, in addition to saving energy, are synchronized with compressor speed and work better,” he said.
The higher the star ranking, the more money you’ll save on your utility bill.
About any model of air conditioner has a star rating from 1 to 5. As compared to traditional or locally assembled air conditioners, higher-ratings air conditioners use less energy. Inverter technology for air conditioners is intended to conserve 30-35 percent more energy than a normal air conditioner. “It’s always easier to opt with a higher star rating and the latest technology for better product longevity,” he said.
Maintain a temperature of 24°C.
For an optimum load on the compressor, temperature maintenance, and reduced energy usage, the AC temperature should be set to 24°C.
Choosing the Best Location
It is important to assess the fit of an air conditioner before purchasing one, as this will help to reduce power consumption. Choosing the best air conditioning system for the room size and position is also important for efficiency. “If space is not specifically affected by the heat or has floors overhead, a 150 sq. ft. room requires a 1.50 capacity air conditioner,” he added.
The cost of maintenance is kept down.
Since an air conditioner has over 3000 components, it is important to get prompt service and repairs. “Consumers can purchase brands that have comprehensive after-sales operation and periodic inspections to ensure that the unit runs smoothly. To extend the life of the air conditioner, clean the air filters and wash the outside unit every 7 to 15 days, according to Arora.
