Heatwave In India: We all know that this year northern India was struck by blistering heat weeks earlier than usual and that also means the country’s air conditioner manufacturers are looking at record sales. It is important to set up air conditioners properly if one is living in the northern belt of the country that is witnessing extreme heat this year or other hot and humid parts of India. Air conditioners or ACs are in fact, the best way to deal with the heat, but purchasing and running them is an expensive affair.
Given the extreme heat, it is likely that users will run ACs for hours and that also means a significant increase in electricity consumption. AC manufacturers have introduced models with 5-star ratings that are touted to consume less energy. Also, there are inverter air conditioners that claim to reduce electricity consumption — it is said that inverter ACs consume very less energy, thanks to the variable speed compressor. We have compiled a list of 5-star and inverter air conditioners to help with your cooling needs.
