Air Conditioners have become a common household home appliance everywhere, many factors influencing the reason, the rise in the earth’s temperature, and low price (Budget) air conditioner in market and so on. But the air conditioner serves the major reason for the rise in electricity bill. Not only the bill goes up but the resource is depleted so fast by the exponential number of Air conditioner usage across the nation. In order to save the energy and also reduce the electricity cost, BEE or Bureau of Energy efficiency started to give ratings for the AC’s depending on few factors like cooling capacity, power consumption and their energy efficiency ratio. The air conditioner with the highest value of EER saves more electricity than the others. Depending on the EER value the Air Conditioner can be put in terms of top 10. Also we should note the cooling capacity and the power consumption plays an important in deciding the EER value. To increase the EER rating the cooling capacity can be increased and the consumption reduced or either one.The higher the cooling capacity, more heat–the air conditioner can remove.
Depending all this factors we have categorized top 10 split AC’s with less than 1 ton (capacity).
