Fujitsu O’General is one of the most popular air conditioners manufacturers worldwide. This company in collaboration with ETA-Ascon, Dubai has come up with some superior products which are ruling this markets since a very long time. They are one of few manufacturers who are offering only premium range of air conditioners in AC market. So, this is a review about O’General Split air conditioners.

O’General Split Air Conditioner (AC) Review

O’General is the brand which is very popular among those who are aware about it. They are the premium range air conditioners manufacturers who are not just popular in India but in middle east countries as well where temperature normally remains above 45 deg C all the time. This product is most famous for its long life term and its robust quality which makes him performance even at any temperature it faces. This product is in general a Japanese product but currently it is imported from Thailand only. So, don’t forget to check in box packing where it is manufactured. O’General is offer 2 types of Split AC’s currently:

  • High Wall Split
This is the normal split air conditioner which we mount on side walls.

  • Ceiling Wall Split

This is a special split air conditioner which is made to mount on ceiling in your house or any place. This product is not very popular, hence not every manufacturer takes interest in manufacturing this kind of product. This product is required generally those people who have space constraints on side walls or some other specific need which is unpredictable for me.

O’General Split Air Conditioner (AC) Cooling Effectiveness

If an air conditioner doesn’t cool the room, then what the point of having it one. But this product will not let you down at this point. O’general is popular for its superior cooling and you need not to worry for that. Its inbuilt double complex swing action of flaps throws air at high speed on both horizontal and vertical direction to give very effective cooling in every corner of room. Position of flap gets adjusted automatically to match the operating mode. And the most important part is a inbuilt micro-computer which adjusts the flow of air automatically to maintain proper room temperature and keep it monitoring too. Hence it results in a very effective cooling.

O’General Split Air Conditioner (AC) Build Quality

This build quality of this product is excellent. A good quality product is what we expect when we pay a premium amount of something. And this air conditioner has got nice finishing, every edge is properly finished and you’ll not feel that any part of it is looking cheap or anything. There is no compromise in inside parts as well. As per all reviews we got, the life span of this product is so high that it becomes pretty obvious that every internal part is made up of good quality like Sturdier fins, ABS plastic, Fire retardant components, special Japanese steel sheet metal parts with special polyurethane coating. The outer panel which is removable is washable as well. You can remove the panel easily to purge molds and dust completely and this makes your air conditioner always clean. Also the squeaking sound which is produced by stress made by some parts is eliminated by manufacturing and using soft resin in parts. The complete outer unit is manufactured one piece to give it a form of unification and to provide a good life span to other parts as well. Also it has inbuilt self-lubricated Fujitsu Fan motors sealed in aluminium cased fins which results in an increased long life of motor.

O’General Split Air Conditioner (AC) Looks

When it comes to look, O’General is what not very impressive. As an individual product, the looks are simple and fine and don’t looks bad. But when we compare the looks with Hitachi, LG or Samsung, this is where these companies have an edge over looks. I really wonder, O’General is a very big brand in air conditioners manufacturers and they always over-shadowed when it comes to beautify there products. May be they don’t feel India as their biggest customer base and in middle east countries, these simple looks get more sales. However the looks is what people don’t point out much, but when people pay something good for something, i feel some better looks are always a welcome.

O’General Split Air Conditioner (AC) Power Consumption

O’General air conditioner are famous for its power effectiveness. They are really power efficient and if you mind paying high cost of this product, then you need to consider this point too that you’ll recover this cost in electricity bills after its running of 1 year or two as per your usage. And then this air conditioner cooling is so powerful that you will never feel running this air conditioner all the time and hence you’ll run it most of the time for a limited time period using timer or anyway you feel comfortable and this will automatically saves you a lot from huge electricity bills. And further speaking, it has EER (energy efficiency ratio) of above 10 which automatically reduces power costs. And it has a high efficiency DC motor with Lambda Type heat ex-changer which overall results in high efficiency of air conditioner.

O’General Split Air Conditioner (AC) After Sales Service

From all the reviews we aggregated, this company is providing an average after sales service. If you check the official website, many portions of the website is not working at all. Even store locator or service center locator is not even working. So, this is point which really pokes that when such a big company is not even aware about the bad condition of its official website, how they would be aware of other major things like providing a satisfactory after sales service. This is the point where O’General requires a major upgrade. So, its best to buy this product from an authorized dealer and you can always call them to send a person to you for servicing or when you had any kind of trouble with it.

Final Verdict

This air conditioner has got the qualities which we require in a good product. But at the same time, it has got some premium price tags too. If you pocket allows this much too spend, definitely go buying this brand since it would also help you in some saving in electricity bills too.

      • Ankit it hardly matters in which state you live……am living in a metro and still O- General services are worst……… i have spent so much money on this crap machine which i had bought for 51000/- Rs.
        Its 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC and now i feel its a complete wastage of my money……..No Cooling Effects as such and moreover as what this company claims to save ur electricity bills is also fake.
        It consumes more electricity than a normal ac and i usually operate it on 24*C and it does`nt any cooling at such low temp range.

        So from my side its a BIG NO to O-General……..all consumers beware of this Brand its just for name sake buy any other brand like HITACHI or Voltas but not O – General !!!!!

  2. I have bought ASGA13ACT model 1 Ton A/C. The after sales service is pathetic. The machine is working well. No body from the company is able to tell me what is the ACL button (Hole) in the remote control. Secondly, even the manual does not explain what is the +1-2 degree &1-2- minus of Standard temperature setting in Auto mode.When can this option be used?

    • ACL button is pressed when we replace the battery. After replacing weak batteries, we need to press that button. ACL button usually clear the settings. It is also used when you set some wrong settings in air conditioner and pressing that takes the air conditioner back to default settings. 

      Talking of temp settings, when you set the air conditioner in AUTO mode, and you’re not satisfied by the current room temp ac is keeping in AUTO mode, you can adjust the temp by ±1-2 deg as per your comfort.

    • After starting the air conditioner, try pressing the ACL (All Clear) button (inside hole). It should reset the air conditioner to default. If this doesn’t helps you, get it checked by service persons!! Between how old is your ac now?

  4. I bought OGeneral Split AC 1.5 TON  - Model NO: ASGA18AET – Price: Rs. 43,700/- (Including Stabilizer and 14.5% Tax)

    Other than this they charged me Rs.1000 for Installation,  Copper tube  Rs.650  per meter (Consumed 1.5 meters). I spent almost Rs.46,000/- (felt really sorry for spending this much)
      
    Bought it on 3rd week of March 2012 from Girias Store, Tambaram, Chennai This is what my experience is:Room size is 12 x 10 feet. Its on the terrace of the two storey house. When i ran the AC at 18″Celsius around 8 o clock at night.  I didn’t feel reasonable cooling even after two hours. I had to turn ON my ceiling fan along with the AC to feel the cool air atleast. Where as  at around 4 o clock in the morning the room becomes very chill. Is this the case for all AC users?Regarding power Consumption, my room has only Single Phase Power supply. When i ran the AC at 18″ Celsius whole night from 8PM previous day to 8PM next day (the other appliances which were ON are a Ceiling fan and a CFL lamp) it consumed 14 Units in my power meter. This is very high.CAn someone please check if you face the same…

  5. I recently bought a O General 1.5 Ton Window AC. Have to say that the unit is very noisy and the worst part is that it does not have an auto-restart function. Whenever there is a power failure I have to manually restart the unit. Awesome job of changing the functioning of the AC to suite Indian conditions.

    Everyone kept telling me that O General is the best AC but I am now convinced otherwise.

    • 1.5 Ton AC would be ideal for you Ashok by assuming you live with 3 or 4 person maximum in your room. I will publish soon a post with having Air conditoner tonnage calculator.

      Did you find this comment helpful? Yes   No

    • As per standard calculation, 1.5 Ton should be enough for your area. However there are many more factors for calculating those too like City and window location etc. Search on Google for Air conditioner Tonnage Calculator and you’ll find many of those which may help you better. Thanks

      Did you find this comment helpful? Yes   No

    • Yes Chetan … You are right … Its the feature of the A/C. Its been designed to do so. Need not worry. Basically you have 6 swing adjustments. When you are in Cool Mode, you can use only any of the 1st 3 swing adjustments. When you set it in any of the other swing options it rolls back to original one after 30 mins.

        • For 340 to 345 sq ft area, you might need to install two 1.5 ton air conditioner or one 2 ton and one 1.5 ton just for the cost saving part. for price you’ll need to check local market only.

          Did you find this comment helpful? Yes   No

    • Sadiq, Ankit is right … 4 KVA is good enough for a 1.5T A/C. If you have power fluctuation problems please go for a wide range stabilizer. V-Gaurd has 2 models VWR 400 (4KVA) & VWR 500 (5KVA).

    • Suresh, you should go for atleast 1.5 Ton AC for your shop. And choose the AC as per your budget. O’General don’t provide many models, so it’s easier to choose any in 1.5 Ton and enjoy using it.

  12. Which brand could possibly compete with O general

    Hey,
    Am looking for a split AC for my drawing/dining area of 20*15 feet. I am quite sure that I will take a 1.5 ton 5 star split Wall mounted AC. I am not buying the idea of having 2 ACs or a 2 ton AC as some sales folks have suggested to me. I finally intend to move the AC I buy to my own flat (awaiting posession) next year. 1.5 Ton would surely suffice drawing/dining area in my own flat. The geography is Delhi/ NCR. I am looking for a long term solution. Want the AC to last long and hence am Ok to shell a few bucks more. I guess I have also made up my mind to buy a Japanese brand. (So O General, Hitachi, Panasonic, Daikin are a few that I am exploring.)

    I have been doing some searching and am quite impressed by the features of O-general ASGA18ACT model.

    The question I have and need your help answer is:- Is there a product in the same category that could possibly come closer to the quality that O General model is promising or will deliver?

  13. Aparajita Tenneti

    I live in hyderabad and I’m planning to buy a 1.5 ton split AC for my bedroom. I will be using AC for a couple of hours in afternoon and 3-4 hours at night in the month of April,May and June.

    After doing lot of surfing on the net and visiting different shops, I’m confused as to which brand to purchase. Shop keepers either promote one or two brands or say good about all brands as he has to sell. On the net reviews are confusing. Confusion is between foreign vs indian brand,
    copper vs aluminium condensor,

    Please guide me as to which AC to buy considering below factors.
    good quality
    effective cooling
    low maintenance
    less noise
    low power consumtion
    good after sales service

    • Aparajita, As per your requirements, first you should go for buying Split AC as they used to be total silent, low maintenance and offers great cooling. Plus as per my experience, after sales service of LG is best and product is also of great quality. Hence i would suggest you to consider buying an Inverter V series AC of LG. And forget the confusion you had since Inverter V series has totally copper built condensor and is manufactured in Korea, not even in Thailand and if you ask me, its the best product available in market till now.

  20. O Gen Splits Feedback & Awareness

    I am from Chennai, TN. I have 2 OGen split’s. One 1.5Ton (Indoor – ASG18ABC-W, Outdoor – AOGR18AAT) for a 160 sq.ft room & one 1Ton (Indoor -ASG12ASLCW, Outdoor – AOG12ASLC) for a 100sq.ft room.

    Few inputs for your benefit from my personal experience …

    There are 2 types of compressors. Piston & Rotary. Piston is less prone to issues when compared to Rotary. Piston units are bulkier & consume little more power when compared to Rotary units, because Piston is old technology. There is an opinion that Rotary units are more efficient & consumes less power. But Performance & Cooling wise I did not see a much bigger difference.

    Issues with electronic equipments are purely fate. If you are lucky enough it will work on & on for years. If you are not, even the numero uno product from the market will be a pain in your butt.

    Coming back …

    I bought them from grey market, for the very obvious reason “they are cheap”. But I bought it from a very reliable & knowledgeable technician who knows in & out of O Gen models. My 1.5T & 1T are imported ones. Only in 1.5T you can find the “made in —country” tag. You will not see it in 1T. My 1.5T is from Thailand. I have also enquired in a lot of places, the “made in —country” can be found only in models >1T. Imported ones do not have star ratings. Also you can find imported ones from China.

    My 1.5T is a piston unit & 1T is a rotary unit. Both the units were installed in Oct ’12. 1.5T is working perfectly fine. No issues till date. However I had one issue with my 1T. I got it fixed & its fine now.

    My usage of 1T is regular. I scarcely use 1.5T. However the power consumption per month has increased by 2 folds, defeating the argument that rotary units consume very less power. I switched off all electric/electronic items @ home except the fridge. I ran both the A/Cs for 1 hr, with the basic settings, no swing, temp @25 & fan control as medium. 1.5T consumed 1.8units/hr while the 1T consumed 1.4units/hr. If you do a comparison with other brands you will get a very good idea.

    O Gen has an assembling unit (not manufacturing unit) at Pondicherry in Tamilnadu. So all the authorized dealers in India will mostly give you only Indian units. You need to ask the dealer if they sell imported ones as well. I had enquired a lot. Very few dealers deal with imported ones. In the Indian assembled units you will never find the “made in —country” tag. The Indian ones where costlier by few thousands than the imported ones from the grey market.

    Also please note that any issues with your A/C, your voltage stabilizer might also be a culprit. I have installed 2 V-Gaurd VND 400 (4KVA double booster) which has an analog meter to check the output voltage. I always check the output voltage before turning on the units. These days you have wide range stabilizers with digital meters. Go for them, even though they are a little costlier.

    Though our fridges & tv units are attached to a voltage stabilizer, they do fail. So is the A/C unit. Also check the incoming/outgoing power from the points & also for voltage fluctuations before going for any brand A/Cs, which I did. This will help you decide the right stabilizer. If you have high power fluctuations please do not buy A/Cs like O Gen, Daikin etc.

    A/C Installation Charges – 1500/- per unit
    Outdoor Unit’s Stand – 650/- per set
    Copper Tube/Pipe – 200 per feet for 1.5T & 160 per feet for 1T
    4KVA Double Booster Stabilizer (V-Gaurd VND 400) – 2850/- per unit

    All these were rates 6 months before. As far as installation & service is concerned you should be having a knowledgeable technician w.r.t any imported A/Cs
    To sum it all … I am a happy customer till date. Also feel free to correct me if I am wrong anywhere … :)

    • In o general , which spilt AC is good for purchasing

      Hi sir,
      I have been looking for o general split AC for residential use . Now the present model is ASGA18ACT , tomorrow the other model will b released. I heard that for the above model , R 22 gas is used for compressor. But for new model(tomorrow ) R 14 gas has been used.
      could u pls let me know, which one I can buy. We stay in nandyal, andhrawala pradesh.

      Pls let me know whether imported model will b good / the Indian assembling unit .

      If u know the details for authorized dealer(imported AC MODEL) ,pls let me know.

      Pls let me know the difference.

      Did you find this comment helpful? Yes   No

      • Updated and Corrected: R410 (not R14) is being used in Hot and Cold AC’s and R22 in Cooling only. You can buy any model with R22 refrigerant. Also, i don’t know if there is a difference in compressor coming with the imported or the Indian Assembled Unit? If you can find that out… decision can be easily taken. And sorry to say, i don’t know any authorized dealer there. But you can easily find one by calling on customer care of O’General. Thanks!

    Did you find this comment helpful? Yes   No

    • It depends on which floor you live? If you live in ground floor, 0.75 ton should be enough, but i won’t suggest that buying so. Buy 1 ton AC atleast for 100 sq ft if you live in a place with high humidity and temperature.

    Did you find this comment helpful? Yes   No

    • Respected Sir,

      I don’t want to confuse you, but would straightly recommend you to read this article – http://www.reviewcenter.in/1860/lg-inverter-v-air-conditioner-review-price-features-and-specifications and would like to say to forget O’General or Diakin because of the obvious reasons mentioned in the article. You’re doing a absolutely right choice and don’t trust dealers so easily as they will always talk for their profit first. I can understand that outdoor unit size is a concern for you, since you’re buying 9 of them, but the thing which i am recommending to you is really worth a look. If any question arises in your mind, please ask :)

      Thank you for your comment.

      Since yours is a 1.5 TON AC, i would recommend you to buy voltage stabilizer of 4 KVA model of any reputed company like V-Guard, Bluebird or Luminous. Go for the one which may provide 5 year warranty.

  37. Shall I buy Og Inverter

    Hi,

    I am on very confused stage. Each shop owners suggest me each product. I think they may have more margin profit for suggested product. One person suggested mitsubishi is the number one and another shop owner say sharp is best in AC industries and one person suggesting Ogeneral. I got confused lot.

    I decided to buy a Inverter Ac, the main reason is power consumption. Actually I am going to gift the AC to my parents. So the initial cost is not an issue but in future they should not pay more for electricity bills. So kindly suggest me a best Inverter Ac with best power consumption.

    Requirement is 1.5 ton Inverter split Ac

    After my surfing in net I got few best suggestions

    1) O General 1.5 Ton Inverter Split AC – ASGA18JGC

    2) LG Virus Inverter

    Kindly let me know which one I should buy? Please respond asap.

    Thank you-

    Did you find this comment helpful? Yes   No

    • Go for 2nd option without any glitch. Since you want to save your parents money, it’s best to give them most energy efficient air conditioner and also which has best after sales service, since you won’t prefer that they may remain disturbed with o’general whose after sales service are OK but not at all better than LG.

      • Auto Setting in window O General AC

        Dear Ankit,

        I am using O General Window 1.5 T AC and their is one option where i can put my AC in Auto mode, however in Auto mode again it shows 4 type of Temperatures +2 , +1 , -1 , -2, please guide me what this temperature shows, and when we put AC in Auto Mode then at that time what is the temperature at which AC operates, i this Mode saves Power. Thanks in advance for your help.

        Did you find this comment helpful? Yes   No

        • I have O’General window AC at home, and i know what you’re talking about. When you set this air conditioner on auto mode, it sets the temperature at 22 deg and when you do +2 , +1 , -1 , -2, temperature shall be set accordingly between range of 20 to 24. This range is given for customers who may be like to have lower temp or higher temperature. Auto mode acts when it attains your set temperature, compressor shall stop for saving power, and whenever there is a deviation in temperature, it’ll again start running.

    Also, kindly explain what is ACL which is written on Remote Control

    Did you find this comment helpful? Yes   No

    • I am not aware of the features which O’General split offers. Hence cannot help in temperature level lights query.

      And ACL button means “All Clear” which is used only when something wrong happens with AC settings. Pressing that buttons clear all the settings from indoor unit and defaults it to factory settings. However you’ll hardly get any chance to use that button. That button is mostly used by service persons.

    • Buying a product like air conditioner from grey market is what I would never recommend. You don’t get any warranty and if by chance any issue arise, it would be like impossible to get official support. And yes O’general air conditioners now come with star ratings. And if you trust the company, it doesn’t matter whether the made is from India or Thailand.

    Ever Worst

    Services ETA General (P) Ltd – O’General regarding ACs are unpraiseworthy which may be improved very easily if ETA General (P) Ltd gives a some strict attention to it to their supervising officers. The following problems were faced & are still being faced by me:
    (1) ETA General (P) Ltd does not provide copper pipe for installation of split AC which is the most important part. The quality of copper pipes and its insulation being used by the dealers is quite uncertain and depends on the mercy & amalgamation of dealer & installer mechanic
    (2) The O’General authorized dealer (M/s New Gaurav Electronics, Marris Road, Aligarh, U.P.) at the time of sale told us that the AC if we get installed the AC by them on the cost of Rs.1000 installation charges + Rs.300 per foot of copper pipes length, cable to be provided by us(customer), they will guarantee for cost free refilling of gas if so happens during the 1st year of installation. But after installation I asked the dealer to write this guarantee, he refused to give it writing.
    (3) During the 1st year of purchase of AC, all AC authorized dealers generally provide at site quarterly routine maintenance & check up free of cost in the interest of product before any serious problem arises which was assured to me at the time of purchase transaction for which the dealer refused.
    (4) The installation mechanic sent by the above dealer installed the 24ACT split AC at my premises very haphazardly and left many works incompleted.
    (5) To implement guarantee, as a normal procedure, it the duty of the authorized selling dealer to submit all details after sale & installation automatically to customercare unit of the ETA General Pvt., Ltd since sale & installation has been done by them. For getting Guarantee card I have been sending several letters to ETA General (P) Ltd., Chennai and various authorities.
    (6) There is no one to check / supervision quality of installation, its proper cooling, routine maintenance. After sale customer is left alone on the mercy of God.
    (7) ETA General (P) Ltd, distributor of O’General ACs in India, does not pay any attention to the customers correspondence, howsoever it may be in the interest of their products, and may be attended by their sleeping staff very easily if ETA General (P) Ltd gives a little attention.
    (8) I have got installed 2T split AC in Sept 2013, its cooling is very chilling, i.e. 7,200 watts whereas cooling of O’General 2T 24ACT is only 6,500 watts.
    In view of above I am absolutely not in favour to advise for purchase of O’General ACs. I have been tired making correspondence. I think you should change your praise of O’General. I have been writing it to you since many persons prefert to purchase ACs after reading your comments.
