Hi,

I have a 16 year old 1.5 Tonn Window AC of Electrolux. Which has a very good cooling capacity, never refilled gas, still it's working fine. Because the rats got repaired 3 times last year,  also changed the capacitor.

I am thinking of replacing it with a new 1.5T window non-inverter AC for the guestroom. Room is 180 Sq Feet and facing the back side and no contact  with direct sun rays.

But first I want to know how much power consumption (wattage+ampere) takes a non-inverter window and split AC ?

Current power consumption of my old AC is - (on wipro smart plug) ----

Normal to Turbo Mode: 1500-2000 watt, 7-9Ampere
Fan Mode: 190 Watt , 0.8 Ampere

It should be around 1100-1300 watt peak power for current 3-5 start rating ac.

For 1.5 ton, expect around 1300 Watts for 5 star and 1400 for 3 star. During extreme heat it can rise to over 1500  and even 1800W. Inverter will be similar to start but will drop after a while. I will NEVER buy a non inverter AC and will never buy a window one as far as possible. A 5 star, hot and cold split inverter is the way to go. However if this room is only used once in while for guests then a 3 star window unit is ok.

my 1 Ton LG 6 Sence 5 star ac consumes 1100w on peak 1.2 Ton mode

and in power saving around 300W Really my old water cooler consumes 280W in full speed 

If u have Budget Go for 5 Star Split Ac they are more energy efficient
