Buying an AC – Star Ratings and Inverter vs Non-Inverter AC

When you decide to buy an AC this summer, you may come across inverter AC and non-inverter ones with different Star ratings. The situation may confuse you, and you may end up buying the wrong AC.

As a result, you can go through this article and know the differences between buying a 3 Star AC and a 5 Star AC and inverter and non-inverter ones. Read on!

  • Star ratings

When it comes to AC with Star ratings, you may have an idea that machines with higher Star rating mean that it is more energy efficient than others. For example, buying a 5 Star AC may help you save more on power bills than buying a 3 Star AC.

How much these star ratings help you save on electricity bills?

As per many calculations available, it has been estimated that the average savings that make buying a 5 Star AC is around Rs.1,000 in comparison to a 3 Star AC.

It is assumed when you are using the air conditioner for 8 hours daily for 4 months.

But, you would be able to pocket such savings only when you buy leading brands in India such as LG, Hitachi, BlueStar and others. These brands assure you that you do not need to spend so much on your electricity bill as they are technically sounded and specially designed and manufactured for this purpose only.

Hence, to be on the safe side, it is wise to invest in a 5 Star AC than a 3 Star one. It is especially more when your focus is on to save on electricity bills. Although 5-star AC would be on the expensive side, but if you will calculate the benefits of 5-star AC you will get to know that they help you in saving your money.

In long-term, saving on the light bill should be the focus than saving some amount on buying a lower Star rated AC. It is because you will have a greater need for power for your future.

  • Inverter air conditioners vs non-inverter

To understand the difference between an inverter AC and non-inverter one, you will need to see how they work.

AC follows the below process of cooling:

AC pulls in warm indoor air and makes it pass through the evaporator. Now, the compressor cools the evaporator, and the evaporator cools the warm indoor air. Now, the AC throws out cool air.

In case of a non-inverter AC, the compressor at its peak consuming more power to reach the set temperature. Once achieved, the compressor is off, and is active again once it detects an increase in the room’s temperature.

On the other hand, an inverter air conditioner is flexible and smarter in its working methodology. It adjusts the working capacity of the compressor and electricity consumption as per the room’s temperature and the desired temperature.

Hence, when the compressor needs less power, the inverter AC allots it less power and vice-versa. Thus, buying an inverter AC is considered far more energy efficient than a non-inverter AC. The only downside of buying an inverter AC is that that they are costlier to repair than non-inverter ones.       

Hopefully, this has updated your knowledge about ACs even more. It may also assist in making an informed decision while considering buying one.

Buy a brand new 5 Star AC on No Cost EMI

If you are ready to buy a 5 Star AC, then you don’t need to stretch your budget as you can do that on easy EMIs.

The No Cost EMI facility is being extended by Bajaj Finserv EMI Network in India. You can simply divide the cost of your AC over a tenor and pay only the fixed EMI per month and nothing extra.

This way, you would be able to save more when compared to other EMI payment systems. You only need to have the Bajaj Finserv EMI Network Card with you to shop across India.

Conclusion: Lastly, even though we haven’t shared it above, you must buy an AC according to the space available in the installation area and the area which is outside of your house dimensions like balcony, terrace, or any other place if in case you are going for a split ac.
