Air Conditioner

With the changing weather, keeping your home at the right temperature is not an easy task. However, it’s easily achievable with the use of an Air Conditioner. Especially, during the extreme climate, summer or winter, it’s really important to know how to manage the temperature inside the room.

Home air conditioning is a very much flourished concept worldwide these days. All commercial buildings, apartments, personal residences, and hotels have AC these days. Air conditioning ( commonly known as AC, A/c) is a system implemented to cool down the temperature in a closed space by the removal of existing heat from the room. Air Conditioners typically control the temperature, humidity, and quality of air.

Types of AC

Buying a new AC needs some serious understanding of the types of AC. Furthermore, you also need to understand what type of AC is suitable for your purpose.

Here are the different types of AC available at DealAyo that fit your requirement.

  • Split AC

  • Split AC basically has 2 main parts: compressor outside the closed area and air outlet unit inside the house. Such air conditioners rely on a set of pipes to connect the compressor and inside the air outlet. Due to the absence of ducts, it is often called ductless split AC.

    One of the major benefits of split AC is that it provides an option for expansion with additional air outlets for other rooms. While each outlet has its own thermostat, all of them can be turned on or off individually.

  • Window AC

  • It is the simplest type of AC. All of its components are contained inside a single casing. Such type of AC is installed in a window and can be easily moved or shifted. Window AC works on a similar principle to any other type of air conditioning system. Its basic components are a thermostat, a fan/blower, compressor, evaporator, condenser coil, and tubing filled with refrigerant.

  • Cassette AC

  • Cassette AC is a very peculiar type of AC used for offices, shops, hotels, and showrooms. These days they are becoming more popular than any other condition. They are preferred in new buildings and skyscrapers due to their low energy consumption and good price.

    Such AC works on a similar principle to any split AC. However, the only difference is that they are mounted on the ceilings, not on the wall. The inner unit of such AC is itself hung down the ceiling and spreads the cool air through vents.

  • Portable AC

  • Portable AC or a Stand-up air conditioner are the ones which can be moved very easily. It contains all the components inside a single body. Such type of AC can be set up very easily without any expertise. Some of the models of Portable AC have wheels attached to them making them easy to move around. It is considered the most convenient air conditioner.

  • Tower AC

  • Tower AC is the best type of AC due to its portable nature. It has an elongated standing air unit similar to the portable AC. The outer Unit of Tower AC is very similar to the split AC. Such AC has a comparatively higher cooling capacity and ensures instant cooling.

    Tower AC is kept on the floor instead of fixed on the wall. The cooling process begins by absorbing the hotter air from inside and then the cool air is released. The entire heat is released outside through the outdoor unit.

  • Multi Split System Air Conditioner

  • Multi Split Air conditioners work with one powerful outdoor compressor and multiple evaporators. It can work with 3 to 5 indoor ac units providing the optimum level of performance. Its main advantage is serving each indoor AC at the required temperature individually.

    Such types of AC are the ideal choice for you if you wish to use individual indoor ac units in different locations of your home and control the temperature independently. Furthermore, Multi-Split AC is a very good option for offices, apartments, and personal residences.

    One of the best models of Multi Split AC is VRV Multi-Split AC by Diakin.

Capacity

The unit of measurement of the capacity of an air conditioner is tons. The higher the tonnage the higher the capacity to cool. AC with higher tonnage can cool larger areas at the same time. If you are considering buying a brand new AC online in Nepal, you must have measured the area of the place you are looking to fit the AC.

First of all, calculate the area of the room for which you want to buy new AC, then look at the table below to get suitable AC for you.

S.N Size of Room(sq.ft) Capacity in tons Capacity in BTUs/Hr
1 Less than 150 sq.ft 0.8 ton 5000
2 150-250 sq.ft 1 ton 6000
3 250-300 sq.ft 1.5 ton 7000
4 300-350sq.ft 2 ton 8000
5 350-400 3 ton 9000
6 400+ sq.ft 4 ton and above 10000

Power Consumption

Single-phase Or Three-phase Air Conditioner

With the growing AC Technology, new issues are brought to light. Single-phase and three-phase AC are both abundantly available in the market. Additionally, for AC between 3-8 tons capacity, options are available for both single-phase and three-phase. However, with AC capacities greater than 8 tons, 3-phase is preferably standard. Therefore, this discussion is still valid for small places that use AC below 8 tons of capacity.

Here are a few reasons why should have 3-phase AC:-

  • Less Power Consumption
  • 3- phase AC consumes up to 40% less power than single-phase. This implies that the 3-phase AC can generate the same tonnage with 40% less wattage.

  • Less chance of failure
  • Unlike single-phase AC, 3-phase AC doesn't require capacitors or centrifugal switches during startup due to its high torque. Hence, lesser parts mean lesser chances of failure.

  • Longer life
  • As compared to single-phase, 3-phase AC has a longer life span. 3 phase offers a continuous supply of electricity which causes fewer vibrations. Due to this, such AC has lesser wear and tear effect which means more durability.

Generally, by the rule of thumb, AC power consumption can be assumed as-

  • 1 ton of cooling = 1,000 watts
  • 1.5 tons of cooling = 1,500 watts
  • 2 tons of cooling = 2,00 watts
  • 3 tons of cooling = 3000 watts

Other Factors that might affect the Power Consumption

One of the things, you might be thinking about is how much electricity bill do I get for running my AC for 1 hour. Here we are going to discuss the factors affecting the power consumption of AC.

  • No. of persons
  •  

    As we know, the human body emits a lot of heat. Therefore, a room with 10 people will require larger capacity AC to cool the air than a room with 3 people. So the number of people determines the power consumption and hence, the electricity bill.

  • Temperature
  • It takes more power to cool a room at a higher temperature than a room at a lower temperature. Outside temperature plays a very important role in power consumption.

  • Room size
  •  

    Air conditioners remove the hot air from your room and get in the cooler air. Therefore, the larger the size of the room more the volume of air inside it, and more is the electricity consumed to cool that air. Electricity consumed in removing heat from a 200 sq. ft room is lower than that of a 200 sq. ft room.

  • Electrical appliances present in the room
  • All sorts of electrical appliances generate heat which in turn increases the room’s temperature. Due to this, AC has to do additional work for cooling the same volume of air.

    Invertor VS Non- invertor

    For starters, let’s say, you could save up to 58% on your HVAC costs with an inverter AC. This difference is solely because of the way the compressor motor is run in invertor and non-invertor AC.

    In a non-invertor AC, the compressor can run at only two speeds to maintain your desired temperature: on and off. On the contrary, an inverter AC keeps the motor turned on continuously and adjusts the speed to maintain the temperature. This means the compressor does not have to turn on and off continuously instead vary its speed to maintain the temperature. For an analogy, compare the non-invertor with the sprinter who consumes all his energy in a very short time. Whereas the investor is like Marathon runners who consume energy very efficiently.

    Following are the advantages of Inverter Air Conditioner:

    • Efficient energy consumption (less by 58%)
    • Eco- friendly
    • Less noisy
    • Lower maintenance
    • Regulate Temperature better

    Features

    Here, we have discussed some of the features of an AC:-

    • Thermostat

    • A thermostat allows you to control the cooling output of your AC. Medium to high-end AC features a digital thermostat with high accuracy and which has the capability of higher accuracy and it shut off automatically. Basic models have a mechanical thermostat which has less accuracy than the digital thermostat.

    • Remote

    • These days all sorts of AC have a remote control system. The remote allows you to control the temperature and fan speed while showing the fan speed and temperature on the remote.

    • Fan Speed

    • The speed of the fan affects the rate of cooling your room. AC has the feature of adjusting the speed of your fan. You can change the fan speed to high, medium, and low.

    • Timer

    • A programmable timer in the AC allows you to set the stop time. This helps us to manage electricity consumption. You can set the timer for a minimum of minutes up to a few hours.

    • Direction Controller

    • This feature allows you to control the direction of the flow of air from your AC. It helps you to direct the air in your desired direction. It also helps you optimize the airflow if you are utilizing the ceiling fan.

    • Type of filter

    • There are two types of filters in the AC: standard and washable. The standard filter has to be replaced periodically to ensure proper airflow and filtration. Whereas, the washable filter can be cleaned in the kitchen or bathroom.

    • Smart connectivity

    • Having your AC connected to your phone will take a lot of burdens away. You can turn it on or off, adjust the temperature, fan speed, etc. just with the help of an application on your phone.

    • Indoor Air Quality

    • Continuous airflow and proper Ventilation are the key factors in improving indoor air quality. This can be done naturally but in the city area, we require an air conditioner to maintain this quality. Air conditioner

      • Maintains humidity of the air
      • Removes the allergens and pollutants
      • Provides adequate ventilation
      • Helps us keep the desired temperature.
