What To Look Out For, Before Buying An Air Conditioner?
With alarming temperatures and climate change extremities, it is becoming almost a necessity to have air conditioners to do indoor work peacefully. There are several ways to acquire an AC because of developing technologies, improved accessibility, and marketing techniques. One need not necessarily go to a showroom to buy a very expensive AC. The time when it was only certain rich people being able to afford ACs has passed us. and every other middle-class house has an air conditioner. We aren't necessarily always dependent on EMIs or down payment for these units. We now also have the facility on several online and offline stores to rent an air conditioner. With the availability of leisure made easy, it is evident that our comfort zone is becoming better day by day.

For anyone who is looking forward to getting an AC, rented or for buying, long run or for short term. the following analysis will help you decide and mark the pros and cons of types of ACs so as to help you find the most suitable one for you. Air conditioners are primarily divided into two types, split and window. Significant differences, apart from cooling quality in these types of ACs, are as follows

• Units:

In a split air conditioner, the indoor unit is put on a wall and is responsible for the cooling inside the room. While an outdoor unit is set in an open space and is responsible for releasing the heat and has the running machinery. These two are attached with a sophisticated, robust pipe system so as to run things smoothly. Air Conditioner window unit, on the other hand, is a single unit system. Where the air conditioner is attached to the window itself and operates for both cooling and heat-releasing from there only. These units also play a role in deciding what kind of AC can be fitted where considering the space of each potential AC-space.

• Cost:

Window AC Cost way less than split air conditioners since they do not have an extensive, sophisticated pipe system. This means that a window air conditioner is more natural for most people to buy and use. On the other hand, when it comes to rented ACs, one might not get a good window AC for use for cheap. Split ACs, even though expensive, are readily available on rent and are quite powerful in terms of power-saving and less maintenance which window ACs lag in. Split ACs also come with ‘star-rating' system these days, which prove their energy efficiency. Which is to say that not only do they cool well, but also save your electricity bill. But again, split ACs are significant investments when it comes to buying, so you need to consider that as well before making a decision.

• Maintenance:

Apart from maintenance cost, the maintenance frequency also decides the efficiency of an air conditioner. Window ACs call for support quite often. Some of these maintenance stretches are based solely on necessary cleaning, dusting, etc. but yet end up being cumbersome and troubling if not done for a while. Split ACs don't need too much maintenance in terms of frequency. But since the machinery is much more sophisticated than window ACs, they call for a substantial amount of expenditure whenever they require maintenance. Usually, renting companies provide for one unpaid maintenance call and the rest are to be looked after and paid for, by the new owner.

• Space:

A window AC requires a proper window set up to be installed while a split AC needs a wall. In complicated areas, split ACs are fit better since they do not require too many prerequisites. and the outdoor unit could be set up anywhere on a stand of the roof, etc. The room capacity also determines which AC will work best. Window AC will not be beneficial in a big room while a split AC will work wonders with large spaces. A small room will be almost instantaneously be cooled by a window AC. and so taking botheration and costs of split AC in that sense seems unnecessary.

• Outlook:

A split AC looks smarter and gives the room an elegant touch. On the other hand, window ACs may not be very aesthetically pleasing. However, in spaces with wall decorations, split ACs might be responsible for harming or spoiling the wall or even the final look. and so window ACs are conveniently put in a corner giving a better convenience and not interfering with the already designed layout of the room.

Air conditioners have become one of the most used machinery in times of increasing heat, especially for countries like India. After careful analysis and comparison, one can decide easily which air conditioner to get and how to get the most out of it.
