Voltas is one of the oldest name in air conditioners manufacturers. Voltas is one of the part of the TATA Enterprise and is one of the largest supplier of engineering products and service provider for textile machinery as well. Voltas air conditioners company has head office at Mumbai and various regional offices in many respective states.

Voltas Split Air Conditioner (AC) Review

Voltas is one of the oldest name when it comes to air conditioners manufacturers and is one of the most famous name in India. People know names like Voltas, O’General, Carrier since decades and again they are one of the most successful manufacturers as well. Voltas is famous because of its low priced AC’s and has more sales on middle class category of consumers. They had a kind of monopoly for a long time run in Indian markets until other manufacturers also jumped in market since 1 or 2 decades years back. Voltas offers basic functions in their air conditioners and are not much full of features like Hitachi offers. These are like AC’s just like O’General which also doesn’t offer much features in there air conditioners and the functioning is also very basic. Voltas was also awarded “Reader’s Digest Gold Trusted Brand Award” on 2010 and accorded “Power Brand Status” on 2011 (This survey is conducted by Indian Council for Market Research) as well.

Voltas Split Air Conditioner (AC) Cooling Effectiveness

It’s not difficult to find out how some AC manufacturer offers an air conditioner at lower cost while same product is being offered by other manufacturer with a big higher price difference. When you compare the technical specifications with other competitor AC manufacturers, you’ll easily find out why? When we compared Rated cooling capacity of Hitachi and Voltas, we find some difference in cooling capacity and power efficiency as well. That’s why it is said to buy O’General or Hitachi for more power efficient air conditioners because the higher price difference which we pay initially get recovered by electricity bill differences we pay later on. However this difference is not very very big that you may regret that why you didn’t bought these premium ranged AC’s before.

But just keep one thing in mind, buy the right tonnage capacity air conditioner as per your area requirement and every air conditioner will cool down your space. The major aspect between Voltas or LG and O’General or Hitachi air conditioners is that cooling remains effective for longer years for later manufacturers and is said to have longer time span. The compressor of later would perform better at high temperature areas but now Voltas has also improved with time to offer a good quality compressor. The compressor is a high torque compressor which is helpful for giving fast cooling for your space. But keep one thing is mind, there is always a difference between a higher cost and lower cost air conditioner. However for the price range Voltas is offering there products, they are not bad to have and are good as well.

Voltas Split Air Conditioner (AC) Cooling Build Quality

Build quality always differ between a higher and a lower price AC. But it would be really unfair that if we compare Voltas with O’General or Hitachi for build quality. Because for offering a product on lower price, there would be definitely a difference of quality. But it doesn’t mean that the quality they are offering is bad. The quality of there products is good and you won’t feel that your buying a lower priced air conditioner. However a premium feeling is missing which we get on higher priced ranged air conditioner only. The major difference of cost also impact compressor life as well. As per you usage, sometimes compressor can demand for servicing early for these and you may end up paying for refilling of it once in year or two.

Voltas Split Air Conditioner (AC) LooksVoltas Split Air Conditioner (AC) Looks

One appreciable work which Voltas did recently is to improve looks for there split AC’s. It’s a fact now that split air conditioners get more sales, that’s why most companies are targeting more into improving there range of split AC’s. Samsung recently stopped manufacturing window AC’s just because of this reason that Split AC’s are more in demand today and as well in future. Most of the consumer are more inclined to have good looking products in there house and care for power consumption as well. These are 2 most major points which every company is keeping in mind these days and that’s why everyone is coming up with best looks they could offer in there AC’s. That’s why Voltas introduced a new series of AC’s in there Vertis series which are good looking as well. Other series models looks were also improved with some modifications but Vertis series is what caught first looks in it. And for looks, you can judge a product in a actual showroom only since everyone has its preference with looks.

Voltas Split Air Conditioner (AC) Power Consumption

When it comes to power consumption, as per i said above, they have improved the compressor quality and power efficiency as well with time. However we still cannot compare it with O’General, Carrier or Hitachi since there values differ when compared with Voltas. But when we compared there values with LG, the values of power consumption was almost same with same rated cooling capacity and product specifications. So, it can be said, you can buy between LG, Samsung or Voltas where you get a competitive price for same. However talking of Vertis series of Voltas which is having a high torque compressor, it usually consumes less power because they start with increasing torque and low voltage frequency, however if you run the air conditioner in turbo mode always, do not expect it to perform as a power efficient product for you.

However it is worth mentioning that Voltas was awarded “Empower Awards for Energy Efficiency” for manufacturing most energy efficient air conditioners, which is awarded by Urjavaran Foundation, a voluntary non-profit NGO. There panel of jurists were consisted of eminent personalities from the field of Energy and Environment.

Voltas Split Air Conditioner (AC) After Sales Service

Voltas has got many rewards which shows that it is one of the most trusted brands among consumers. But in actual there after sales service is average or OK. In today’s time, a company needs to remain connected to consumers in as many ways as they can and Voltas looks like they don’t simply care for that. We heard good things about after sales service by this company by less percentage of consumers and found more un-satisfied one. However they were satisfied by the product but not by the service. Even when i contacted Voltas for some query, i didn’t got any answer from them as well. I contacted them from there Facebook fan page and using company official website contact form as well, and there was not response. This shows how much they are concerned about there consumers and i didn’t found them active as well on there Facebook fan page. So, Voltas really needs to push up things further as they have got some big competitor with them like LG or Samsung who are better in providing after sales service.

Final Verdict

If you got to know that Voltas has got some good reputation in your area and people are satisfied using it and your seriously looking for a budget air-conditioner, you can choose this product. However do check prices at many local places you find and compare prices with LG or Samsung as well and take a wise decision.

  3. I purchased VOLTAS 1.5 ton split ac from SAHIL ELECTRONICS, Sarojini Nagar on
    the 2nd of June, 2012. Earlier also I had read bad reviews of voltas AC and its
    Customer Care, But due to pursuation of my father and the dealer,I decided to
    buy it to my bad luck. Now I have having first hand experience of the one of
    worst possible split ACs in indian market The Compressor of voltas AC is
    pathetic. Inspite of the AC put on “Continuous cool mode” the compressor shuts
    down frequently. As a result, The room is not cooling. I compained to Customer
    care a number of times. Every time I call, they renew the complain and say that
    “Technician will visit in 24 hrs”. But even after 5-6 days, there is no
    response from their side. Its really frustrating that even after spending 36000/-
    on their product, they have such pathetic service to offer. One thing is for
    sure, I am never buying voltas again in my life. and also that never let any
    dealer pusuade you to buy any product.

    I too have a bad experience buying a Voltas Split AC 1.5 Ton, which i bought for my son, who is usually in Hostel & comes Home only for two to three Months in a year. I bought it from their Faridabad Dealer Mayur Electronix. The First problem i faced is that they (Voltas Dealer) forget you after you buy the Product (before buying they will keep on following you / pursuade you). No after sales & service back up is there. The second major problem i faced was on complaining for low cooling, their engineer told that Gas has to be refilled as it got leaked & that also within 13 Months of buying. where no mishandling was done from my side as it is less used. I prefer not to buy this Product in Future & would advise all my friends to be careful as well.

  5. On the recommendation of the shopkeeper I bought Voltas Vertis AC last year that too spending a lot more extra than the similar ACs in this category.
    I had bought 1-ton AC, and the same price LG and Samsung offers 1.5 ton AC.

    Cons:
    - Price
    - Never go on the star rating – this might not give the desired performance
    - The body is made of poor quality plastic. The hinges of the filter window break after removing it 3-4 times, and in result you get is vibrating window which is noisy.
    - Worst of all – the gas leakage problem. Within a year the gas leaked – few days after it was serviced by the Voltas service center. I have been using LG and samsung ACs since a long time. Infact one of the LG AC was bought in year 2000 and still I have never felt any cooling problem or gas leakage. But the quality of Voltas AC seems to be so poor the problem arose within a short time.
    - To add to it, they themselves believe that thsi problem can occur, hence they ask the customers to have the AC coils to be copper coated to prevent any damage.
    - At the time of its 1st service, they asked me to get them copper coated for Rs. 300 which I did, and here is the result. Within a month, the gas leaked and they are charging Rs. 2150 for refilling!
    FYI – The AC’s price is Rs. 17500/-

    To conclude, I would warn all prospective buyers not to buy Voltas AC. Go for LG, or O-General instead which have better cooling and less maintenance.

  9. Poor service by Voltas

    We (NRCP, Solapur) have booked complaint for 3 ACs reinstallation vide No. 13MY0307613; 13MY0307714 and 13MY0307731 on 4.5.2013 which were attended and submitted Estimate No.UPBG/Casual/786 dt.13.5.13 for Rs.31,705/-. Approval of the estimate was issued on 16.5.13. On reinstallation, mechanic found one of the three ACs compressor has burnt out and suggested to replace with new one for which we have received Estimate No.UPBG/CASUAL/790 dt. 24.5.13 and for which the approval was given on 1.6.13. Till date we have not received the Compressor and rectified the same. When we contact the person concerned (Pune: Mr. Ramana Reddy) he says something or the other. However, he informed that the compressor has been received by him and handed over to Mr. Anil of Pune. But still it has not reached Solapur. Please look into the matter and do the needful/help.

  10. Voltas or LG

    Hi Ankit,

    First of all thanks for all review. I’ve gone through with your voltas, lg, hitachi reviews and found that LG is more better brand to go with.
    But I wanted to know that if I am getting a good offer from voltas (20% off for TATA employees, directly with co. (No dealer involved)) then should I consider Voltas ac (if it could stand somewhere in from of LG) or not?

    I am leaving at Gurgaon and looking AC for my 2bhk accommodation at second floor for one 12 X 12 room. I guess 1.5 ton AC would be required for it. I need to buy another ac for another room as well but may be not this summer.

    I need to use it in summers only and mainly use in night during weekdays but almost whole day during weekends.

    And if you could suggest model as well with BEE start rating that I should consider.

    Thanks in advance
