Hi chevelle

Sorry for the delay.
According to the mentioned room dimensions, you should go for 1.5 ton AC for the bedroom and a 2 ton model should be sufficent for the living room.
as i mentioned earlier also, for the room you should consider Hitachi Quadricool TM 1.5, believe me its worth every penny. Mrp price is Rs 27400, for TM model and Rs 26490 for Quadricool RAV018EQD. you should expect a discount in the range of 2000-3000. Ordinary window AC's from lg,samsung, voltas etc are available in the range of 17000 to 21000, but these are not as silent and efficient as Hitachi Quadricool.
Panasonic has a nationwide scheme offering a 1.5 ton split AC for around Rs 23000.
Hitachi split AC's are very expensive so i wont recommend them.
for the living room a 2 ton split AC should be an ideal option. samsung AS24NC costing around Rs 29000, should be a good option.
finally, i would again like to remind you, that Hitachi, O general and panasonic have the best products, but they are relatively expensive.

Thank You
Hi, my suggestion would be to go for good energy efficient Split AC models. Please have a look at this BEE link & do a search for most energy efficient models. Look for the Energy Efficiency Ratio(EER)(W/W) (higher the better >3.5)

Energy Efficiency Ratio(EER)(W/W) =Cooling Capacity (W)/Power Consumption (W)

One of the highest rated models is of Toshiba RAS-18SKDX-IN +RAS-18S2AX-IN models.

BEE Link http://220.156.189.23:8080/beeLabel/index.jsp# click on search & compare on the right side of the screen.

I am told that there is a change in the faber management. Current owner(!) has sold the company to some one else. Hence production is stopped. No sale taking place. And no quotation also.

Thanks Guys for your opinions.

Guess will go for Hitachi Quadricool. Will keep ya all updated.

A small update.

Yesterday, my parents went to look for AC. They saw some LG, Samsung, Hitachi models

Funnily, the sales guy was rooting for LG, he said it has good service bla bla bla. Dad also liked LG. We currently have a LG AC and Fridge at home. Not too impressed with performance and maintenance , but dad's all gunho about it. Mom prefers Hitachi. They are quoting around 30k for Hitachi Split AC. Will try to get model number. Also 1500 rupees extra for fitting charge. The difference is quite huge when compared to quotes given by Jaspal. They are also not giving any discounts.

Will talk later in the evening with dad and convince him to go for hitachi. Still pricing seems to be quite high. Its in Baroda, Gujarat. They said, old models have been replaced by new models and so price has increased.

Decision to be taken in couple of days.

Any suggestions on how to convince dad for Hitachi?

Sorry for long post.

Cost me 18.5k almost 17 months back. Now it is around 17k with a vacuum cleaner free. Its not noisy and has not given any problems. washing quality is really good (even in "chennai" water, if you know what I mean), very easy to use. I'd definitely recommend it.
Just saw the ad , Girias Bangalore is offering WF-F861 (same one you have) for 17K+free vaccum cleaner. Will check it on my way back home today.

Hi chevelle

the prices which i mentioned were for a window AC(quadricool is a window AC) and the price qouted by dealer is for Hitachi split AC model which is absolutely fine.
split AC installation charges are around Rs 1500, no matter which brand you buy.
i would suggest you to buy Hitachi quadricool( window AC) for bed room and a split AC for the living room. for split AC you can consider panasonic, samsung and if budget permits Hitachi.
Tell your father that its a long term investment( min 5-8 years usage), and
Hitachi with better technology, reliability, features, efficiency and better asthetics would be an ideal choice.

do keep us updated!

We checked it yesterday and almost decided on buying the same. Then we saw a LG model F1056LDP, they are offering it for 24.5 K with some freebies. After some negotiations they came down to 23.9K

F1056LDP link: LG Front Loader Washing Machine (WD-12485TP) with capacity of 7.5 Kg For Easy & Quick Wash

Let us know your opinion!!

Thanks Jaspal for your view. I will suggest them the options you mentioned. I still haven't discuss in detail with Dad as he is busy with his work. But i plan to talk with him about Hitachi and tell him your a fore mentioned points . Also they said they didn't came across any panasonic AC.

The second problem is, if its not decided by this weekend, it may get pushed to around 1st week of march. Due to 'Hodastak' period during which new stuff is not bought(Family tradition - can't help it). I hope its done by this week.
Will surely let you know the status.

Thanks for your opinion. Much appreciated.

Hey guys!
My mom is on the lookout for a good 7.5Kg or 8Kg top-loading washing machine. We had booked an LG WF-T8519PV (a newly launched model on the website)
But, the Croma guys kept us waiting for a month and a half and we opted to cancel the order. Now, which washing machine do you suggest in the specified capacity.
Please, I need replies today itself!!

As i dreaded, couldn't buy before Today, so is now shifted to 1st March. But its almost decided. Either Two Split AC from Samsung/LG and one window ac from Hitachi Or 1 split AC from Samsung and one Window AC from Hitachi.
Will give more info on specific models and price as and when i have more information.

Thanks to all who helped making a decision.

Guys,
Here is a silly question for a frustrating occasion.
We do not know the exact time when the cooking gas cylinder is
going to run dry/empty. Is there any external guage instrument
by which we can know when to change the cylinder.

It is frustrating when one morning you are late to office
and wife sheirks from the kitchen that there is no gas.
Have to sms the address to that fellow and be
present at home before the guy comes to take the empty
one and pay him the cash.

Yes, general usage graph maybe useful, but
sometimes there is a surge of guests and office folks
and the graphs go bust.

Kindly lemme know if there is someway to find out.

Dhanyawaad!

You don't have double cylinder? Go and apply to your gas company for a 2nd cylinder. Just attach the new cylinder when the first one goes empty and call your gas company when you are free.
