Budget not an issue.

Are the Daikin Inverters worth? What are the prices like? Should I get a 2 ton or 1.5 ton? SPLIT only. For my ambient conditions, please check OP.
Suggest some good ac for good energy savings and cooling for around 350 sq feet room.
Thanks.

1.5 ton should be enough, but getting the 2 ton will be a safer bet.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

@RajaPraveen
Split AC - Split Air Conditioners Manufacturers, Split Air Conditioners India
There are so many plethora of models and specs which I don't understand. Neither the price list has the prices for the inverter models.
Please could you help explaining the Daikin nomenclature?

Also, how much can be the real savings of an inverter AC? what are the general prices like..have no clue! not even an approx idea. Dealers say "Sir dukaan me aayi, tab price batayenge" :/

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

Pernicious. You really need to outline your priorities. If it's going to be on for less than 2-3 hours a day an inverter is useless. It definitely is in it's own league, the Daikin inverter range, and no one can beat it's cooling and power saving. More so, they are even called the ROLLS ROYCE of ac's, because of the quiet comfort they provide.
If power saving is on your list, here's the math. Atleast 50-60% less power usage than a normal 2 star AC.
20% less than a 5 star. And 5 stars are quite low on power usage anyway.
Go for Daikin. EYES closed. I have 4 inverters at home since 2 years and just bought 2 for my clinic and 2 for my fiancee's house.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

We are using Panasonic Cube 1.5 for 400 sq feet. Trust me, it is not that silent, the unit is 'different', but the cooling is excellent.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

There are a lot of companies out there which makes good A/C's but Daikin and Fujitsu General are in a different league altogether.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

Some price quotes I got over the phone:
Apparently there's not much difference b/w 5star and inverter prices :/
Also, @frankmehta, if the power savings are really THAT impressive, we won't minding keeping the AC on longer We have to sometimes think(it stops at thinking though, and no action lol) due to the 10 grand bill of two rooms, and around 15 for whole house!

daikin:
INVERTER:
1.5T 42500
2T 48500

1.5 Ton
2* 29400
5* 40000

2 Ton: 5* 48000

approximately 500 bucks diff b/w 2 ton 5* and inverter :O

what is that? 1.5 ton inverter star rating?

Also, the Daikin solution center here told me it also keeps OG and panasonic. Should I even consider these tomorrow when i visit the shop?
Edit: what are these? cooling only & heat pump? :O

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

1.5 tonne r2 inverter cooling only model. heat pump models can blow both hot and cold air. i am not in favour of those.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

guys, dad saying now AC would be pricier, wait till winter? (The old AC is fine atm, some mechanic who had repaired it previously, was unwilling to come so decided to buy a new but then he came on his own and fixed it)
Anyway, we would still buy a new one. The only change that has happened is, the need is not Immediate.

So what do you guys think, is it worth waiting? And even if I do, saving 2-3K won't matter, I'd rather get it now.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

^^ For the run of the mill companies which sell a/c's in bulk, the discount is around 10 to 20% in off season, but I have not seen the top companies ( with respect to quality ) offering too much discount !!
