AC Guide


Factors to consider while selecting an AC

1. Size of the Room

The unit used to measure the size of the AC is referred to tonnage or ton for short. A ton is not the weight of the AC but the amount of heat removed by the air conditioner in one hour measured in British Thermal Units (BTU). Therefore the higher the BTU, the greater will be the cooling capacity, which means the AC will be able to cool a larger area. Normally 1 ton = 12,000 BTU, 1.5 Ton = 18000 BTU, 2 ton= 24,000 BTU and so forth. There exceptions in certain cases but they are clearly stated in this guide.

Interesting fact: The term tonnage or ton originally referred to the amount of space that can be cooled using one ton of ice.

All ACs are rated in watts, but they do not consume the same all the time. An AC removes heat and humidity from an enclosed space and it will consume just that much amount of electricity that is required to do so (plus or minus based on the size of the AC). Which means a 1.5 ton AC if put in a 200 sq ft room will consume different amount of electricity in one hour than a similar AC put in 250 sq ft room in the same location (and in similar conditions). This is because heat will be more in 250 sq ft room and thus it will take extra electricity to remove it.

The size of the room is not the only determining factor but generally:

  • A 12,000 Btu AC can effectively cool a 450 to 550 square feet room.
  • A 1.5 Ton AC has an average 18,000 Btu, and it can effectively cool a 600 to 900 square feet room.
  • A 2 Ton AC has an average 24,000 Btu, and it can effectively cool a 1,400 to 1,500 square feet room.

2. Energy Efficiency Rating

Another thing to consider when buying an AC is its Energy Efficiency Rating (EER). This rating specifies how much voltage an AC consumes. Basically the EER = Amount of heat removed per hour/ power consumed. The higher the rating, the more energy efficient the AC is. While in some countries it is mandatory for all AC brands to specify the EER in Pakistan it is not a very common practice.

3. Other Electrical Appliances Emitting Heat

All electronic appliances like laptops, mobile phones even light bulbs emit heat that add to and increase the temperature of the room. Putting a lot of lights in a room will make it hotter and the room will need more air conditioning. Using less light in a room will increase the performance of the AC.

Research indicates that other factors like the number of people in a room and the type of colors used also have an impact on the cooling capacity of an AC. Dark colors emit more heat and can increase the a the amount of time and electricity consumption of an AC.

Inverter ACs

A new technology that has recently become available is the Inverter AC. An inverter AC automatically adjusts the compressor speed to maintain a constant room temperature. A non inverter AC switches the compressor off when a certain room temperature is reached, and when the temperature falls below it, it switches on the compressor to maintain the temperature. The regular switching on and of the compressor consumes more electricity. Since the inverter AC doesn’t switch off the compressor, only lowers its speed, it is more energy efficient and reduces the electricity bill. It is also quieter than the non inverter AC since the compressor’s speed will be reduced when the desired temperature is reached. There are few brands that offer the inverter AC model. Inverter AC can be used during winters too since they have heating capacity as well.

Different types of AC’s available in the market (Listed in alphabetical order)

Acson

Acson is a Malaysian brand with manufacturing facility in Pakistan. It was introduced in Pakistan few years ago, and quickly became one of the most popular brands because of its reliability.

  • Thank you for making this comprehensive list, Very informative and useful. I wish you would have rated these brads as well or maybe people could chime in about their experiences.

      Dear Waqas,

      Thank you so much for your input. Excellent suggestion. We are in the process of introducing a rating mechanism for consumer products and will be rolling that out very soon! Keep visiting our website in the meantime.

  • Mohsin

    Thanks for this. But the more helpful thing in selecting AC is EER and you should update the list mentioning EER of each brand. Thanks for this though.. 🙂

    • admin

      Thank you for your feedback. We understand that EER is the most important metric for calculating energy efficiency but there is no independent authority on this in Pakistan and one has to rely on manufacturer claims which are far from the truth. We’ve included this information wherever available.

  • I have bought a 1.5 Ton Gold Series Orient OS-19-MF04 AC recently. Been using it for about a week now, It cools the room pretty quickly maybe because I live in a basement but still so far I like its performance. I follow the guidelines on the bill to use my AC off peak hours. I have a fairly large room. Even at 26 temperature I am very comfortable. I will update or add a new comment if I am not satisfied with it later on.

    • admin

      Thank you for sharing! This is great information.

  • Umair

    So you’re saying that any inverter type AC can be used for heating the room as well? I’m in Isb and looking for a unit which can be used to heat the room in the winters. Would all inverter types units fulfill my requirements? because if i go with an inverter type, i might be able to save money than buying a unit sold as heat/cold.

    • admin

      Correct. Not all inverter split ACs are reversible. Just like not all regular compressor split ACs are not reversible. However all popular AC manufacturers have DC inverter split ACs that are reversible and can be used for heating in winters.

  • Mujeeb

    In your opinion, which is the best Inverter AC to buy in the 1.5-2 ton categories?

    • admin

      We’ve been hearing positive reviews about Acson and Panasonic even though they’re more expensive. Brands such as Haier and Kenwood are slighyly cheaper but the performance is not at par with Acson, Panasonic or Mitsubishi.

      • I am planning to buy the 60 percent energy saving inverter Ac by kenwood. Any reviews for the product. Also, my room is 205 sq ft approx. Would 1 ton do?

  • Farrukh

    Thank you for this,can you please guide,which size of an inverter ac would be enough for my 16x11x11 sized room,ground floor,with average insulation,one side being exposed to direct sunlight,for an hour or two in afternoon,with a room built up on this room. How would you grade electrloux/gree ? are both/any auto-restart,an essential feature during sleep.
    Kindly see if you can respond asap,i have to purchase one.
    Secondly my older unit,an LG 1.5 ton,11 years older was reported to have leaked(indoor),and could`nt be satisfactorily restored,last year,if i change the indoor unit,and get it lacqured on pipes,would that still serve us,or selling it at a very cheap price to pawn shop is the only solution ?

    • admin

      A one tonne AC would be fine for the room this size and considering minimal exposure to sunlight. We would recommend you go with Gree and check with the store rep if it has auto restart in load shedding. You would probably get very little money for a damaged unit so its better that you temporarily fix it and install it in a room with little AC usage.

  • Excellent Review! However, i was planning to buy an inverter Gree 1.5 ton AC. But for some reason i have been told by quiet a few people that it hasnt been performing as the non invertor AC. Plus, The Gree AC usually consumes less power than other AC brands. I just want to know is it true that the gree ac power consumption is mild in comparison to the invertor ac? Does the Invertor AC worth the investment?

    • admin

      You’re right. Our personal experience with Gree non-inverter ACs has not been that great. However our visitors have had good experiences with the Gree inverter ACs. If you don’t have the budget for a Mitsubishi or Panasonic inverter AC, our recommendation is to go with Gree.
