Try and contact the local scrap guy you will get better amount or press the dealer for more.

Old transformer return price is in line . Just yesterday, I sold an old 4Kva Electrom for 500/ and picked up a 2 step, non timer delay, 4 kva, 180~270V Logicstat transformer for 2150/- cash but with warranty.
Thanks Khoj, My old AC is 1.5 ton, Kirolskar compressor assembeled unit, working excellently for last 12 years, has seen shifting of five houses. Never ever had a gas refilled. Was running effortlessly all these years. Now I guess gas needs to be filled as for the last three days the room is not getting cooled and you need to be sitting right in front of the unit to fill the cool air., I think the compressor life is over and it is better to exchange it, rather then spend more money on rectifying it.

The scrap dealers give max Rs 2700 / 3000 for old AC. but since the dealer is giving 2500 and doing installation free for me. I thought to go for the deal as the installation itself would cost Rs. 500. Thanks for all your valuable suggestions in making me decide on the 3 star Whirlpool AC.

Hi Khoj,
Thanks a lot for your help , as suggested i did tired searching for O general , ( looked at the website , it does not show any dealer for Delhi , called by the compay hotline ( ETA) but no thing) , Since it looks like you stay in NCR can you please refer some one for the Ogeneal via PM.

Else it would ne Hitachi 1.5 split for me .

Hi SCH,
That is a sweet deal. I would appreciate if you could let us know what compressor came with your unit.

The compressor is from Panasonic. The AC is a very good, It chilled my room in no time, and mind you I am staying on the second floor in Noida with no floor above my room. Last night even the door holder was very cold and can you imagine also from the outside. I had run it on the Auto mode.

I would surely recommend the 3 star Royale unit from Whirlpool. Thanks Khoj for your advice to go for the 3 star AC. I was also told by the dealer that the 2 star was being manufactured locally whereas the 3 star in coming as CKD unit. 3 star weight is 71 kgs compared to 58 kgs of 2 star.

You can go the General Arcade in Mansarovar Garden and find the entire range of General machines. The best part is that the same company is also an authorized dealer for Daikin and Panasonic. Their contact details are

Saviour Aircon
Address1 FB-122&127, Mansarovar Garden, New Delhi
City Delhi, PIN 110 015
Telephone 011-25116191 / 25933991
Fax 011-25158685
Mobile 9811131655 , 9811229205
Owner 1 Mr. Yogesh Bibra

There is another General arcade in Rohini, in case the above does not work out you could contact them on 27216370; 9312243532.

This is a tough one as there is not much information available on either brand's current range in terms of the components being used etc. I would strongly urge you to look inside the ODU and see the compressors being used and general build quality and decide. Both of them offer a maze of models.

From the information that is available when I compare the top of the line 5 star rated models from the two 'Onida Ultra Slim mirror' @ 30990/- and the 'Voltas Vertis Platina' @ 28990/- I would have to go with Onida as its compressor's cooling is rated at 19200BTU compared to 517200 BTU for Voltas. Further the other models of Onida are also rated at 18000Btu which is par for the course for a standard 1.5 compressor whereas most of the Voltas are rated at 17200 except the Vertis Classic rated at 17500BTU.

As far as features go Onida again seems better loaded and references on the forum in the recent past for Onida are positive though that would be unfair on Voltas as they do not have any negative reviews but none exist for them thus far. Another thing is that since both companies source their kits, compressors etc the quality of the machine in a given season could be different(better or worse or maybe the same) from the previous one depending on the QA levels of the vendors for the given season.

The excess weight ia as the dealer says all other companies use foam for internal packing whereas whirlpool has steel plates.

Also similar voltas 1.5 ton 3 star window ac was discouraged by the dealer due to bad service. According to him Godrej has better service.

Pls. give your opinion about the above two. Godrej is Rs. 500 cheaper to whirlpool.
Go for Godrej A/C it has better service. Toshiba Rotary compressor in it.

Inder,

Out of the two please forget the Blue Star. You would do well to buy the General unit. It is far superior to the BS even though we are talking of different ratings.

Looking at the fact that you are located in the furnace of India you would do well to look at Hitachi's 'STAR' model's new version introduced last month. This is equipped with a 2.2 ton 'SCROLL' compressor which is the best thing to have happened to the splits. At 25600 it has 300 Btu more cooling capacity than the General machine rated 25300 Btu. Also it consumes less current @9.6 Amps compared to 11.1 Amps for General. The price though is higher @56750/- which is the MRP so open to negotiations.

Do understand I am not saying that the General is no good. Infact it is the best there is (its 2 ton is just a shade below Hitachi's 2.2) but this particular model from Hitachi has raised the bar a notch higher simply by using a scroll instead of the reciprocating compressor which is more efficient and better suited for sustained long runs in high ambients. Word of caution though, all other models of Hitachi in this tonnage use a rotary compressor so please ignore them. I am giving the specific model designations below and make sure to verify the same if opting for the Star.

Tonnage Class 2.2
Star Rating No of BEE Stars 5
Unit Model Number RAU026HQD
IDU Model Number RAS026HQD
ODU Model Number RAC026HQD
Compressor Type SCROLL

Another thing - All ACs seems to have a dry mode. Does anyone know how & what exactly the dry mode does?

This is what my LG window AC manual says
Cool Mode: Switches on compressor and circulates cool air.
Dry Mode: Unit will be run at low fan speed with compressor on. When compressor is OFF, the fan will be off.

First I assumed that Dry Mode is just a demudifier, but looking at the above description & also seeing that it allows me to set the temperature in the Dry Mode, it doesn't seem to be just a dehumidifier.

It looks like Dry Mode is just a regular mode with fan operating at low speed. I don't see why the same can't be done with Cool Mode & Fan at Low.
