rare use meaning?


also, recently in one if tgeir apartments, my folks (without consulting anyone much. on advice of one of my aunts) got a custom-made swamp cooler/ water cooler installed.
it cost a bomb …. because well… the person was recomended by the aunt, he had a free hand, cooler has a simple small remote, all adjustments and fittings (including automatic water inrake cut-out) were done by the person in an existing window and grill was cut and new bars/grill added on the cutout.


but frankly, if power consumption of that water cooler is less than a 1 or 1.5tonne AC, then it is a much more efficient and gives much more pleasant… soft cooling effect.


● does that room (any of its external walls or windows) get direct sunlight?

if not, then even .75tonne or less than 1tonne capacity air-conditioner should be okay.
do not go by the name please, cross-check rated versus actual BTU.
12,000 British thermal unit BTU/h or about 3.5 kW ought to be 1tonne.


better check local reports and feedbacks from local mechanics, servicing people and users… to narrow down on brands.

at 43°-45° our first generation (Japanese brand | South East Asia made) inverter air conditioners failed😔.

so i do not think any substantial power savings and (use) worthiness exist for the higher upfront costs of the inverter air conditioners to be off-set.


if regular use is not going to be of continous 9-11 hours, then inverter technology may not really be able to conserve much.

except for it (water coolers) needing continuous water supply and the point that one has to take care that no crustaceans, mosquitoes breed in it… water cooler might be easier on the pocket and if the person intalling it does give service and repair at reasonable price… then it is worth considering.

still if you want… check how is the feedback from those who are using the latest (not more than two years old) Bluestar ACs or offering from Mitsubishi.

maybe now even split ACs are made, but many years back, in Delhi we would notice people “assembling” (window type) O’General ACs.
they would takw the main motor, compressor of OG and other parts/plastics/ frame and all would be assembled.
at one time OG were really big in Middle-East UAE and those units had the same quality$ same make parts as the ones in the O’General ACs sold in UAE.
check one if it is still done by local mechanics.

could you reconfirm if that clsim is s vslid one for tge respective beands?

last i recollect, many brands (including snd especially Daikin) left one at the mercy of the local dealer or retail shop from whom one bought.
I have not checked in Slwar, Jodhpur.. but in this other state, the brand (Daikin) would not even be aware of where and to whom the stock got sold.
the rascal dealers simply hire the the 18 to 24-25year old boys in peak season, besides normal “staff” (so called staff) of 4-5 boys who are sent for ‘servicing’ in first 18-20 months and thereafter snd even during that pwriod.. in those locations… even seniormost technical heads if Daikin had confirmed that they did not have any service centre.
on papee, they told/ claimed to have trained those 3-5boys… but in reality the dealers employed random people during season and there was and there is no surety of those ‘technicians’ (boys) ever having got official Daikin training for even 100-120 hours!

First , you need a spell check in your keyboard, Second I am using Voltas for which service center is common for voltas and daikin, also mentioned in the given receipt .
Third, you dont need O general/ Mitshubishi/Hitachi kind of AC for general home use.
Voltas / LG/ Samsung/ Godrej are good and easily avaiable brand at evey electronics shop.
Anyway , all brands are alive because many of us are buying.
Choice is personal. For me, I buy Indian made products if price difference is managable.

thanks, noted. (it isn’t the keyboard… as much as my mind and fimger).

but that does not really clarify whether the brand is really supporting the product or leaving one at the mercy of dealers or other (this combo service centre, maybe it has brand authorised and brand trained technicians. maybe it does not).

“May be or may not be”. Everything has only one of these two outcomes.
Coming to the topic, suggestion asked for a particular location. So my Response was based on one. I hope that clears your may be or may not be.
