Prices of Inverter ACs


Well-Known Member
I feel the prices of inverter ACs will crash,just like the price of inverter refrigerators.These days even a basic 2 door refrigerator has a inverter compressor ,compared to say 2012 when inverter refrigerators where priced at a premium more then 40k upwards.
In order to meet future BEE standards, they will all have to come up with inverter Acs and now that they have a star label program for inverter Acs ,there should be some credible EER scores .

For ac you guys should always get a EER greater than 3.80 to save electricity bills if and only if you are running it for 10-16 hours
For small time like 4-7 hours it doesn't matter
For ex in my house I preciously had a lg ac 3 star of 2.72 EER it would be running for 18-20 hours at summer season.Our bill would be 6-7k
Switched to daikin inverter bills came down to 2.5-3k.
These are my fav brands

2.O general

They have great build quality that will last you for years

Inverter AC prices have already come down. AC prices have increased in past 2-3 years while inverter AC prices have remain constant or have witnessed a slight reduction. These days, as a rough estimate, if all other features remain same there is a difference of ₹3000/- for each Star. So a 4 star AC costs almost 3k more than a 3 star AC with a similar feature set. And a basic inverter Ac costs around 3k more than 5 star non inverter AC with similar feature.

Daikin ATKP Series 1.5 TR , MRP is 51200/- while Five Star ATF Series Mrp is 47200/-. The basic inverter model FTKH series is prices almost same (₹47700/-) as Five Star ATF series, probably it is lower COP of 3.0 vis a COP of 3.6 in Five star ATF.
