if you have to buy, buy right now. the dollar equation is not helping things you know.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

Some price quotes I got for daikin:
1.5 ton: 2 Ton:
2* 29250 37000
3* 31500 40000
5* 39000 47250
Inverter 42000 47750

one weird thing i noticed, theres absolutely no difference between daikin 5 star and inverter.
Also, that 2 ton is actually a 1.8 ton AC 22000 something BTU. daikin guy said thats what all companys call 2 ton these days only og is full 24000 btu.

Seriously dollar ?? :/

Btw i just asked him casually for og prices..2 ton og 5 star for 51500!! wtf! and he says its not rated. its what we call 5 star as per the specs. the EER is 3.31

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

^^ Summers taking its toll. Do a rough calculation of power consumption vs saving vs period of ownership/usage.

Eventually even a 20k A/C works out to roughly the same. The only difference is that you pay the difference thru the electricity bill spread over a long period of time.

The 30k A/C saves the same amount, spread over a long period of time. However to extract that 10k benefit, you could see yourself holding onto it longer than necessary.

^^ And the more you are hitting your head on this, the more your words are getting gibberish and harder to understand

Just get any that suits the following - Budget, proximity to home, After sales service/support/AMC provided.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

the problem is that the on-paper eer of an inverter ac is not much different from a 5 star. the benefits are in terms of the dynamic speed of the compressor. This can result in upto 20% savings when compared with a 5 star ac.

stop breaking your head, fix a budget and go for the best item at the price.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

haha sorry @SumitB !! that was an epic fail

@baba doga, mate it aint about budget. It's what I should get which would be best for me, regardless of the price.

8 hour run a day for 7-8 months round the year in a 350 sq feet room .. that brings it down it a line.
Thats about it.

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

Guys confused between these two:
:: ETA GENERAL :: go to the technical specifications area and check the model:
ASGA24ACT it's a 5 star 2 ton split. Price quoted: 56500/-

and this:
R-22 Wall Mounted Type (Cooling Only)
model: FTKD71FVM it's a 2.2 Ton inverter but actual btu is around 2 ton. Price quoted: 52000/-

Now, one other shop I called daikin solution plaza here, and he told me this:
For daikin 2.2 ton NO supply but price is 55000/-
and O general: 4 star model, he said 5 star aata nahi hai weird because Og has 3 and 5 stars, and quoted me 47000/-

@RajaPraveen @baba doga @JD666 @ManISinJpr ♦

Please tell me which model to go for? as my dealer told you won't get the "chilled" effect from an inverter ac as the compressor speed goes on decreasing but the power saving will be around 30% less than a 5 star. I don't know what to get!! very confused :/ Need pros and cons.

Also, would the Daikin 1.8 ton suffice? I really am apprehensive of that. the daikin 2.2 specs are shit compared to og 5 star...terrible eer :/ the og specs make me go O_O!!

So it would be great if you guys can get me some price quotes also.

Thanks!

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

Both Daikin and Fujitsu general are good, if i were to buy an AC these days i will most certainly buy a daikin inverter.

Thank you, but did you even compare the specs of Daikin Inverter 2.2 and OGeneral 2 ton 5 star?

Re: Suggest Moi an AC!

One of my friend uses the daikin inverter and i have a couple Fujitsu general 2 ton split AC at home so i know which one is better.

Inverters use less power and provide the same amount of cooling as normal AC's.

ah! you got the 5 stars? the cooling of your og and your friend's inverter (what tonnage is it btw) is same you are saying? nice..
my ac guy told og would be better for cooling..
and please try to throw some light on the spec sheet! daikin's eer goes from 3.25 in 1 ton to 2.95 in 1.8 ton then 2.65 in 2.2 ton..isn't that a bad eer? I know, inverter won't use same amount of electricity all the time, but it would most of the times right?
anyway, also do you remember what price you got the og 2 ton for? 5 star or 3 star mention that.
