One more thing. The purifier has to be placed at a distance of 1-2 mtrs from the t.v. [dont recollect exactly]. Keep that in mind while planning to put it and go through the manual thoroughly.
Sure I ll try to meet the Sharp guys in Pune. What kind of issues did you face with your Daikin AC?
I am planning to go for FTXR Series with Heat pump, inverter with Humidity control, I believe it is the top of the line product from Daikin. The local dealer is quoting 67k for the same.

What is the delivery period that he is advising and has he double checked the availability with the company.

The same model was being quoted@60-62K in Dilli during peak summer but the availability was another story.

Thats some difference in price! Need to negotiate hard with the dealer
He is claiming 3 days of time. However, the price he quoted was for 1.5 ton, need to check the price for 1.2.

Prices posted by me are for the 1.5 ton machine.

As for the difference remember that Dilli has neither Octroi nor LBT etc that are levied in your parts of the country. At a cumulative of 6-7% that should add 4K to the price in Dilli, rest could be negotiated.

I would much rather ensure that the proper gauge copper piping is used for this machine that would have either R410 or the R32 refrigerant and not the old R22. If need be the gauges are mentioned in this thread in posts from May June timeline. The new gases work at higher pressures compared to the old one and therefore the difference in pipe gauge.

Wow! This is one hell of a price! I paid about 60k for General 2 Tonn AC, it was about 2 yrs ago. This was not from the grey market.

Only one actually: the gas leaked out of one of our a/c's. No leaks found, anywhere. They didn't charge us since our a/c was under warranty.
Only other time I called them was to clean our a/c's and do a annual maintainence, wherein they ripped me off :( Fortunately, I deal with A/c guys a lot, and got my regular contractor to service it annually.

I don't know what model is installed in my home since mine was a bulk order with a lot of combinations. I just gave them my requirements, and negotiated the final price.

Thanks,

Default Re: Which home/office AC (air conditioner) to buy ?

I am in the market for a couple of ACs (one each of 1T and 1.5T) for my new apartment. After much research, I have zeroed in on the LG Energia series units:

1T - http://www.lgbrandstore.com/in/air-c...3ew5m.red.html (for a 175 sft room)
1.5T - http://www.lgbrandstore.com/in/air-c...5ew5m.red.html (for a 140 sft room)

My question is, is this a reasonable choice or should I hunt further? I had checked models by Hitachi and some others seen in Croma/e-Zone before finalizing these. For most vendors, bad after-sales experience either in-family or in peer circles is what rules them out. :-)

Which would be the right place to buy in Marathahalli-Indira Nagar area? LG brand shops (there's one opposite Innovative) or multibrand retailers (Girias/Croma etc.)?

Do you not want to look at inverter based systems? Check out Daikin. Got it installed last year. Noiseless and good performance.

Points to note:

- Inverter Vs Non-Inverter. If non inverter you need to look for energy rating.
- Inverter based system are very efficient. Energy ratings I think dont apply there
- Choice of refrigerant.
- Estimation of size.

I am getting an extremely good deal on this Hitachi AC ( http://www.viveks.com/Products/4595-...17-isd-5s.aspx ). Not from Viveks though, but from a friend who is leaving the country and the AC is just 3 months old.

Considering this for the 3rd bedroom in my apartment. Is it worth investing on this ?

I have a similar one, bought it seven years ago and it is running fine. Had to top up gas this year though.

It depends on the price you get, any thing less than 20K is fine. The re installation will take upto 3K. Check if the warranty will be transferred to you.

Guys need a 1.5ton AC Split Hot and Cold in Delhi / Rohini . I am already using Daikin Cold Type Only since 4years and extremely happy with it . My priorities are lowest audible noise and long life/reliability / ease of self cleaning/humidity control mode (not dry mode) and may be inverter type(I am unable to find data on the harmonic generation as Inverter AC's is/are definitely using 6Pulse VFD wherein Harmonics will be about 30-35% and since my electricity meter is not advanced to know fundamental and harmonics so it will definitely bill be for the harmonic distortion too) as running hours will be about 14-16hrs everyday . I generally keep Ac at 26-28 with ceiling fan on slowest speed and AC swing off with vent directing air to highest point in room . I heard Sharp/Mitsu is as good as Daikin . Any pointers .

Thnks

Daikin Heat Pump is what you need.

The companion of all my nights, my comfort in bed, my solace from the world is no more.

What is this? A tragic end to a steamy story patently offtopic to this thread and perhaps unsuitable for the whole site? Nope. More like the beginning of a steamy story ...until we buy a new bedroom AC

Our mechanic told us that he could provide a new indoor unit, as the outdoor unit has several years of life in it, for around 7k-8k depending on brand and availability. I have no idea how one mates different species of unit (this post seems to have a one-track mind) but then I'm not an AC mechanic and he is.

On the whole, though, I prefer to start from scratch with a brand new AC, and I'm going to gamble on an inverter model from Sharp.

The room is only 90 sq ft, although the house is single-floor only, so there is terrace above. The terrace has heat-resist paint, and some of that area is covered by a solar water heater. We have been using a 1-ton Samsung, which has been more than sufficient.

I am thinking that a 0.8-ton inverter would be enough? A 1.0-ton inverter would be more than enough, and a 1.1-ton inverter would be too much?

I'm asking all three, as a relative told me of a 1.1-ton Sharp available for less than the list price of the 1-ton. But, back in my office days, I seem to remember that having too much AC capacity was as bad as not enough, as the thing is cycling on and off too often. obviously that was before inverter days, but still, even if the price is good, there is no point in spending the saving on electricity.

Look forward to reading about your purchase, install and usage experiences with the new Sharp inverter.
