Window AC Price List and Power Consumption Comparison for 2 Ton (3 Star)

CompanyPriceModelTonnageStar RatingEERCooling CapacityPower ConsumptionCompressor

I have taken utmost care to avoid any mistake while doing entries, since it can ruin the comparison. Also i am adding some FAQ’s (frequently asked questions) related to air conditioners. Hope this is going to be very useful for all my readers.

  • Q 1: What is 1.0T of refrigeration?

Ans: Amount of heat to be removed from 1.0T (1000 kg) of ice in order to convert it into water, within closed envolepe, in 24 hours, on or at 0 deg C.

  • Q 2: What is EER?

Ans: EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) is ratio of air conditioner cooling output compared to the power air conditioner consumes. Hence, higher the EER ratio, you’ll have more savings in electricity savings bills.

  • Q 3: How to Calculate Air Conditioner Power (Energy) Consumption?

Ans: You can use following steps to calculate power consumption of your air conditioner on basis of Power Input required by it. You can find out this value in technical specifications provided by product manufacturer:

  1. I am assuming 8 hours normal working hours of air conditioner in a day.
  2. Actual working hours of compressor in “Cut-in & Cut-out” condition is 70%. That means 70% of 8 hours = 5.6 hours/day.
  3. Assuming Electricity consumption of a 1.5 Ton 5 Star Rated AC is 1655 watts/hr which means it’ll consume 1.65 Units/hour 
  4. Actual Units of electricity consumed per day = (5.6 x 1.65) = 9.24 units
  5. Assuming electricity rate per unit = Rs. 5
  6. Electricity consumed per day in price = (9.24 x 5) = Rs. 46.20
  7. Electricity consumed per month = (Rs. 46.20 x 30) = Rs. 1386/-
  •  Q 4: How to find Right tonnage AC capacity for your room?

Ans: Buying an AC with right tonnage capacity is very important for every consumer. Buying an air conditioner with wrong capacity can lead to higher power (energy) consumption and also cooling loss can happen if you bought an AC lower than the capacity required.

There is a straight thumb rule for choosing capacities as per your room area:

Upto 100 Sq. Feet = 0.75/0.8 Ton

100 – 120 Sq. Feet = 1 Ton

120 – 160 Sq. Feet = 1.5 Ton

160 – 200 Sq. Feet = 2 Ton

I have explained this calculation in more detail in this post. However, there are some exceptions for this rule which depends upon the direct exposure of sunlight to the room, Floor on which the flat is constructed etc.

  1. will there be any difference in power consumption (units)in two AC having EER=2.75 each,power consumption 1838 watts, cooling capacity=5046 watts, but having 2 star and 3 star value respectively ??

    • I am not able to recall the exact name of brand you’re mentioning here indirectly. But I can’t answer your query since such things should be officially replied by the company only.

  2. Hello Mr.Ankit, I am planning to buy a window AC for my living area, approx 500sq ft, we will be using them only when we have guest visiting us for 3/4 hrs may be once or twice a month,
    I have short listed 1.5 ton LG 5BR, and Blue Star, retailers are pushing Blue Star over LG, which one do you recommend.

  3. Rajeev,

  4. Help

    Dear Ankit,
    I live in Kolkata. I intend buying a 1.5T 3Star Window A/c for my room.
    I’ve been advised to go in for Copper-Coil A/c’s as they last long & save power.
    Further, i’m being advised to buy 1)Hitachi 2)Carrier & 3)Blue Star in that order. I’ve heard Blue Star a/c’s are good, but hear misleading reports about their after-sales-service,which is important to me!! The same is being told about LG a/c’s & Reputed shops here have discontinued both these brands after customer-complaints about poor-service!!
    Brother, Please advice which brand i should go for/buy?? Longevity/Cooling/Economy & Service are all important for me.

    Thank you,
    Jeetu P.

    • Jeetu, BTU of Onida window is at par with OGeneral, besides that it also has a copper coil & condenser & price is very competative, Blue Star & Hitachi BTU is low in comparison to OG. Carrier does not use copper coil. Recently LG has gone down on quality of their pipes you may have to carry out major repairs for leakages from coil or replace since leakages on alluminium cannot be repaired. So Onida fits the choice.

      • Jeetu, I do not agree to your point that LG has gone down on quality of pipes. This is just a myth created by other dealers in market. LG is using latest technology which is just not getting easy adopted by market because of old thinking of people and because of myths being created by offline dealers. That’s it.

      • hello to all,

        i have been using onida ac ….although when you go to market wat you will find is that there specifications are same that of o general or hitachi or bluestar … when it comes to performance of ac hitachi or o general or bluestar are far far ahead so its better to go for the company which is master in its own field and its better to spent more money once than feeling dissatisfaction

  5. ac

    Suggest me.
    is window ac better than split ac.
    if I have proper vantilation considering cost.
    Please give details and performance of panasonic cube ac.

  6. price

    please tell me what will be the actual price as on date in kolkata of O general window ac 1 ton, if possible please send me the dealers name also

  7. split ac

    1.5 Ton 5 Star Rated AC is 1550 watts lg split ac,use ac per day 8 hours,please suggest me the Electricity bill how much per month..electricity per unit/7 RS

    • Asit, assuming on 8 hours usage, compressor run shall be of nearly 6 hours after counting on and off cuts. Hence, Electricity bill shall be –
      1550 watts = 1.55 units/hr
      Units consumption Per day = 1.55 x 6 = 9.3
      Units consumption per month (30 days) = 9.3 x 30 = 279
      Electricity bill by AC shall be approx. = 279 x 7 = Rs. 1953

      Hope this helps.

  8. which window ac is better

    hey hi please suggest me the best companies window ac with good pricing and quality.Quality prioritising and 5 star rating

  9. Window AC - Carrier Midea

    Iam looking to buy a 1.0T window AC. Any reviews on the Carrier Midea new models – i got a competitive quote for 1.0T,3* model – but worried on service & after sales support since it is a JV. I currently have an old A/C Carrier, but have got good service from the local Carrier authorised service center for past 8+ years. The service team claim it will be serviced by Carrier authorised center – but it is too early & do not know how it would be in the long run.

  10. I have bought a Voltas 1 Ton 3-star Window AC with EER of 2.81, cooling capacity: 3350 Watt and Power Consumption: 1192 Watt for a room of around 160 sq ft in the top floor of a building with north facing windows.

    Would the unit efficiently cool my room or should I have gone for a higher Ton unit?

    Provided it runs for 8 hrs a day, what would be the no. of units consumed in a month?


    • Since you have house at top floor, 160 sq ft area with north facing windows, I would have recommended 1.5 Ton AC for effective and faster cooling. Obviously 1 ton also should do the work, but it would take bit more time to cool the room and you’ll need to keep your doors closed too most of the time for maintaining cooling. Also, brand wise, I would have recommended you LG rather than Voltas when you had such specific requirement.

      Also, compressor run cuts shall be less and it shall be working most of the time for you. So, assuming only 1 hour cut in 8 hours running of compressor per day, your monthly power consumption shall be:

      1192 watts = 1.2 units/hr
      Units consumption Per day = 1.2 x 7 = 8.4
      Units consumption per month (30 days) = 8.4 x 30 = 252
      Electricity bill (assuming 5rs per unit charge) by AC shall be approx. = 252 x 5 = Rs. 1260

      Hope this helps!!

  11. AC buying Guidance

    Hi Ankit,

    I am currently looking Window ac for my medium(small) size room. After going through almost all the articles I have decided to buy 1 ton with 3 star window ac. But I am in dilemma due to different brands avilable in market.
    O general seems to be best but it doesn’t have 1 ton with 3 start AC instead they are having 1 ton with 2 star & also I haven’t read much negative feedbacks or reviews on after sale services (bit costly).
    Voltas being an Indian brand and considering all my requirements is a perfect match (in my budget too). But after sale services are really a concern. Even I have seen Bluestar too.
    Kindly suggest/guide me in this. It would be really helpful if I can get some advice from a researcher like you :)

      • AC buying Guidance

        Thanks for your guidance Ankit. If possible can you calculate Electricity bill for the same (LG 1 ton 3 star model).


  12. Hitachi or Ogeneral or Blue Star

    Dear Ankit,

    I want to purchase best 1.5 ton Window AC. feature / Life / Cooling / Start Rating are the key requirement. Please suggest should I go for Hitachi or Ogeneral or Blue Star.

    Amit Jain

  13. 1 ton 5 star ac

    I am planning to buy a 1 ton 5 star window ac.One of my friend recently purchased voltas 1.5 ton ac, he advised me to purchase voltas ac rather LG ac.But my problem is that voltas does not have 5 star window ac in 1 ton. what is your advice regarding following:
    1) Should I compromise with star ratings and buy 1 ton 3 star window ac.I want to keep my electricity bills at possible lowest level.
    2) or I should purchase LG 1 ton 5 star ac LG PRIMA.
    3) Or I should go for hitachi 1.1 ton (room is 130 Sq Feet ground floor)SUMMER QC/ SUMMER TM. How is the performance of these two new ACs of hitachi.

    Your precious advice is keenly awaited.

    • I would never recommend you buying Voltas over LG. LG is 10 times much better brand when compared to Voltas. You can definitely go for option 2 you said above since it also have better after sales service over Voltas and Hitachi.

  14. window AC

    I want to purchase window AC 1 ton. Please suggest should I go for LG or Onida or Voltas. my budget is 12-15k.

    • Please increase your budget limit for buying a good branded air conditioner. Over the 3 choices you said, I would highly recommend you LG because of best after sales service, latest technology and better running life of the product.

  15. Hi..I am looking for a windows ac for around 130 sq . The room is at ground floor without direct sunlight facing. It normally remains cool during peak hot hours. If I wanna go for a ac ..plz suggests the ton along with the brand. If you can suggest any model ..den it would be great..m in Noida.

    • I would suggest you going for LG window AC as per your requirements and model no. shall be L-Bliss LWA3BR3F (1 ton 3 star), L-Gratis LWA3GR3F (1 ton, 3 star) or L-Prima LWA3PR5F (1 ton, 5 star). You can choose any model out of these 3 as per your budget.

  16. Window or Split AC

    Hi Ankit,

    Is there any difference in cooling efficiency, maintenance and power consumption between a Window and Split AC (1.5 Ton)? As both have a huge price difference.

    • Every AC whether window or Split requires an annual maintenance and generalising any difference won’t help you in any manner. Price difference is huge because of technology and manufacturing cost. Power consumption also depends as per the model you buy.

  17. Buying an AC just on the basis of EER is not a right thing. There are many more factors which impacts an AC buying decision. I would suggest you buying LG L-Gratis LWA5GR3F model. Thanks

  18. window or split

    I want to buy an ac for my top floor(150sqft). we have lots of humidity in weather.please suggest which one(window or split with same ton and star value) should i buy in terms of faster cooling and low electric bill. also please suggest any model.

    • Buy any LG split AC 5 star rated or the inverter series (except L-Ultra series) which shall be best for you since you live at top floor. Since, at top floor, you’ll require your compressor to work all the time to keep you indoor condition optimum, then rather than buying a conventional AC, you should go for inverter V series AC’s. Why i am recommending LG here because of the feature of De-humidification (also known as monsoon comfort) which is quiet different from other companies AC’s De-humidification process. L-Energia series shall be an ideal choice for you since having good filters like plasmaster ionizer in ur AC is also required since you live in top floor.

  19. window or split

    Is it true that the split ac is more better than window ac considering more faster cooling,low maintanance and power consumption or it is just a myth due to high price.

    • Yes, split AC’s are better when it comes to power consumption with same star ratings when compared with window AC’s. You’ll find a 5 star rated split AC, rated power input shall be 1530 watts whereas for same, window AC power input shall be 1600 watts. Plus i won’t comment much on maintenance since no matter whether it is a Split or Window, both should be get serviced on time. And yes, you’ll get faster cooling on split AC’s since it cools down more area at once.

  20. Carrier window AC 1.5T 3***

    Is it true that Carrier Estrella R GWRAC018ER010 has a cooling capacity of 18700 BTU with a power consumption of 1861W? Is Carrier using Copper coils? What parts are required servicing in a window AC? Considering Longevity, Economy, Cost & Service, which brand’s model is better in Chennai? Thank you.

  21. 1 ton or 1.5 ton split ac

    Hello ankit,
    Hope u doing well.
    I am planing to buy split AC. My room size 12*10 facing sunlight since 1:00pm.
    Should i go for 1 ton or 1.5 ton?
    I think to buy 1.5 tone but i m worry that may be 1.5 ton AC bigger as per my my room size and thus become more expensive in electricity bill.
    Does 1 ton AC enough for me? because my room face sunlight so i wirry that it take more time to cool and thus gain become more expensive.

    Please advice.

    what is best from LG and ONIDA? please suggest some new model in LG?

    Thank you.

    • Well, if your 1 TON AC is direct sun facing, it would take some time in cooling the room, but will do it. It’s not like that 1 TON won’t be able to cool down your room. The only thing required from your side is to keep the door closed most of the time. But the compressor shall work for more time to keep the room cool. There are few factors like how much is the window area, for how many hours you’re going to run it in day time when required. and If you would buy 1.5 Ton, room cooling rate shall be faster and compressor shall work for lower period. And then if cost is not an issue for you, then you should go for 1.5 TON and worry not for electricity consumption as compressor running time shall be low. If you want to save money and comfortable that your AC may take some extra minutes in cooling your room, you can buy 1 TON AC. If you want to ask me about models, read this –

    Thank you,

    • You’re being totally mis-leaded by people. You just need to reverse the list keeping LG at first, then Diakin. LG has best after sales service anywhere in India. If you want to believe me, go for LG or Diakin. And just keep out points of copper AC’s n all and trust brand and technology they sell.

      • My Reply

        are you LG employee ? LG is nowhere in business of good AC’s. Suman. you been rightly advised 1)Hitachi 2)Carrier 3)Blue Star 4)LG &5)Diakin. just keep Diakin before LG.

        • Sir, are you in AC business? Do you write about air conditioners? Can you guarantee superb after sales service with Hitachi? How much experience you have in understanding sales in big volume and providing them direct after sales service directly from the company? Why are you forcing me to recommend a brand of whom I have heard only complaints? Why not you do some research and read comments on the Hitachi articles on my website. I would be grateful.

    My name is vikas gupta. My residence is in delhi. I need a window ac, but confused to buy which one. My room is on ground floor. Its area is 10x12x12. It contains a window 4×3. And two roshandan of 1.5×1. and two doors of 6×3. My house have 3 floors. A water drainage is near my house approx 400mtr away. We will use this A/C around 8-10hrs/day. Please suggest me a cheap and energy saving a/c. Some mechanic visited my room and told me to go for 1ton A/C. I already have 3 star 1.5ton voltage window A/C installed on first floor. But am not satisfied with its cooling, and two times its gas leaked and it is very energy consuming, it takes around 10 units in 6 hours of running. So, please suggest a better one which is having copper coils/condenser. Somebody told me i should go for a copper coil a/c. My budget is 30,000 maximum.

    So please reply the best A/C’s for me, and if i go for window a/c or split one.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Going for Split is fine. For your room area and since it’s at ground floor, 1 TON is sufficient for you. And felt sorry that voltas didn’t performed as per your expectations. If you want to go for my advice, you can choose LG LSA3AT3D model. And please do not fall for this myths of having only copper condensor air conditioners. This AC i suggested must be priced approx your budget limit and is the best option for you.

    • Owing an AC and worrying about yearly maintenance? There is not much difference between these two. And yearly maintenance means getting it serviced once in year or maximum twice. And usually this servicing costs between 250 to 500 varying from area to area and company to company. But no matter what, always get your AC serviced by company service persons only.

  30. confused within companies, not a high budget

    Room size 9*12*10,mid flr, no direct sunlight, one small window towards shaft with ac space in it. Need window ac but budget is low. Godrej gwc18gq3 getting in 22500/- without stabilizer,1.5ton. Should go?? Or else which one.

    Our uses are very less May be 3hrs in a day 3person family.


    I stay on 7th floor which is not directly exposed to sunlight but is very hot during siummers. We are planning to buy window AC for our bedroom which is about 200 sqft. we want to go for 5 star 1.5 tonne AC and have finally choosed 2 brand of 2015 model i.e. HITACHI and BLUESTAR. Price and features are almost same for both the models. would you please help me out in deciding which one to buy. ( also if LG would be the better choice with same features and price)

    • If you ask me, LG is a better choice than Hitachi & Bluestar. You can choose LG LWA5CS5A which is a better choice than Hitachi or Bluestar. Or LG LWA5CT5A which also comes with mosquito away feature.

  32. Ac capicity by sq/ft as well spilt/window

    • I couldn’t understand, you require an AC to cool down both room, not Kitchen right. Also, do you have any wall facing both rooms, so that cooling may reach the required places. If you think, you’ll place an AC in one room, and then since 2nd room entrance gate is in 1st room only, and you want to cool down that other room too, then i must remind you, 2nd room won’t get an effective cooling. Also, if you’re tied with budget issue, can you place an exhaust in one room, facing towards another, so that cooling of the room in 1st room keep getting passed to another and ofcourse 1st room is being cooled down by the AC?

  33. cooling capacity

    Room dimensions are…. W20*LI2*H10
    Can 1.5 ton split ac cools my room or may i go for 2ton.

    Room at top floor., no window no direct sunlight..

    Dear sir,
    I am in Tamilnadu. Room size is only 12′ x 8′ x 9.5′ height with two doors of size 3’x7′ and a window of size 3’x4′ . The room is at ground floor with terrace roof. There is no first floor.
    If I go for a L.G. Split A/C – 5 star model under the maximum cost of Rs. 50,000. I am worried about only the POWER CONSUMPTION. (Budget no problem: Ton no problem : But the expenditure towards the cost of POWER CONSUMPTION is problem to me due to the ceiling system of Tamilnadu Electricity Board).
    I need your suggestion. Please suggests the ton along with the best model A/C for me.

    Thanks & Regards

  38. Which window ac should i buy?

    hi ,
    i am planning to but a 1 tonne window ac for an approx 100 sq ft. room in which nearly 15 people are occupied at any point in time ( i have a commercial coaching centre). My daily usage is going to be approximately 7-8 hours a day.. currently the power is being supplied by the BEST.
    would request you to suggest me a window ac which has the highest efficiency in terms on savings and also will a 1 tonne ac be able to cool a room as per the above details?

    • Technically 1 Ton is sufficient for 100 sq ft. area. But as you’re saying there’ll be 15 people at a time, then I believe you should opt for 1.5Ton AC. LG LWA5CT5A would be an ideal choice for you.



    I am looking for Window Ac 1.5 Ton 5 Star Rating. Can you please suggest Best Brand? Retailers are pushing me for Carrier Brand. Looking forward for quick reply.

    • Do check in your area which brand has best after sales service. Usually LG/Daikin are are good in after sales service. I am not very sure of Carrier though. Although i won’t deny you for buying Carrier.

  43. Need suggestion for buying AC

    Hello Dear Ankit,

    Iam from Hyderabad, and have to decide on taking an AC for my home. We have a Hall of size 28′ x 12′ x 10′(H). and during day time all my family members(7nos) mostly will be in the hall and during night we go to our bedrooms(which are adjacent to Hall). Please suggest which AC (Window or Split) will be suitable and economical and how much tonnage.
    We have good space surrounding.

  44. Need suggestion

    Dear Ankit
    Pls recommend me the best window ac in my budget of 18000 to 22000, and also the maintenance factor of split & window ac.

    • Going a bit higher on your budget, recommending you 3 star AC at least. LG LWA3BP3F or LG LWA3GP3A or Bluestar 3W12GA. You can even look at Panasonic ACs. For the maintenance part, Split is more convenient than Window, as, for servicing Windows AC, service person needs to take out complete AC for wet cleaning. But if Outdoor unit of split AC is not installed at an easily accessible place, that becomes cumbersome too. Hence, choose as per your need and scenario. If you’re tight on budget, go for Windows AC.

OG, Lg or voltas n i guess only OG has 5 star rating in .75 ton… i have to look for electricity bill also….eagerly waiting for ur valuable suggestion… regards

  49. LG better than carrier or bluestar. ....seriously doubt that.

    Chugh ji kya LG ke alawa aur koi company dhang ka ac banati hi nahi hai…all you seem to suggest is LG…..I just cant grasp the rationale of you suggesting lg over carrier and bluestar brands which are pioneer in cooling technology???

    • I suggest people LG / Daikin / Carrier and Pansonic. In some cases Godrej and Bluestar too. And you’re challenging my experience after hearing feedback from dealers?

  50. A/C for Guest Room and Drawing Room.

    Hi Ankit,

    Excellent article. Thank you for the same.

    Query 1:
    I am looking for a 1 Ton Window A/C or Split A/C. The A/C is for guest room, so the consumption would be less. Maybe 400 hrs yearly.

    There are many names in the market. Kindly suggest 2 – 3 brands and model numbers (In addition to LG) on the following factors.

    Cooling efficiency –
    Electricity Consumption –
    After Sale Service –
    Price –
    Longevity –
    Star Rating –

    Query 2:
    In addition, I would also like to know few good brand for 2 Ton Split A/C for my Drawing and Dining room (Both are connected and is a big hall.), on the above criteria. The consumption would be more than 1000 hrs yearly.

    Thanks for your help.


  51. Need suggestion

    Suggest me.
    is window ac better than split ac.
    if I have proper vantilation considering cost.

    • It’s not about being better. Usually both cools down room effectively, but for faster cooling, looks and sound limit, may be I’ll prefer Split AC, but there is nothing wrong in having a Window AC.

  52. WINOW LG AC 1.5 TON

    when my ac is in cut in cut off position then its throw water out n consuming also more unit per hour can tell me whats the problem inside in ac .


    • Your drain line is plugged, you can blow air into the tube and clear the drain line or get the air conditioner wet serviced. And that issue is not related to electricity consumption. Run in power saver mode if your AC has. You’ll save many units daily.

  53. AC comparison ..which one is better

    Which is best in list below 5 star for
    1. Voltas 185 EYR 1.5T RS.35000
    2. Voltas 185 JY 1.5T RS.33000
    3. Videocon VSD 55 1.5 T RS.27000

    Whirlpool 1.5 Ton 5 Star Window AC White (WAC 1.5 T MAGICOOL COPR 5S)

  55. How is Hitachi

    Pls comment Hitachi 5 star window ACs r they best
    2. Witch is best for high ambient temp.

  56. Panasonic, haier, sharp or voltas?

    Hi, Panasonic, haier, sharp or voltas? Want to purchase a 1.5Ton window ac for my home.

  57. 09717287328

    Hi ankit, thanks for a ton of useful information about cooling in this whacky summer..
    Can I use a 0.75ton window Ac on the counter in a shop(kept out side with only the face of the ac inside.) rest front area covered with plastic sheets to insulate. Shop size is 9ft*15ft hight is 12 ft.. Will it work?

    • First thing, you must not insulate the AC openings with any plastic sheets. Plus, since I assume you have a long shop, and with floor area of 135 sqft. you must consider having 1 TON AC, not 0.8 tonnage.

  58. So confused Hitachi or LG

    so confused between hitachi, Whirlpool , LG kindly help 1.5T 3Star
    Hitachi Kaze looks good, but being in delhi and dry summer people are saying hitachi is not so good and after sale service is not that easy. or should i go for LG- L- Crescent, little worried since i am not a much of a user of LG.

  59. Ankit, i want to buy a 2 ton window AC , which one would you recommend? Room area 300 sq ft ground floor.

  61. Window ac needed

    Hi Ankit,
    I was looking for ac information on Google..just found your site..such a informative site..first of all kudo to ur knowledge on this and very well answered to each n every quries..i too have questions..I m looking for Windows ac for a big hall exact area size I don’t remember..I can say 2 double bed can come in that area and lots of space are still there..can u pls suggest a good window most important concern is electricity..cause unit charges is 12rs per unit..pls suggest which can fit as per my requirement.

    • For such a big room and such high electricity charges, I would suggest you to keep your sitting arrangements nearby where you’ll install the AC. It doesn’t make sense to cool down every corner of the room by buying high tonnage AC, especially in your case when electricity charges are so high. Still, for such big room, although you might require 2 TON AC, but I would recommend buying 1.5 TON and keep your sitting arrangements nearby to it. Pick LG window AC 5 star rated, will work good for you.

  62. tell me

    i satyabrat want to install an ac at my shop (Xerox & Print) area around 81 sft. Tell me which company and which capacity required for my shop.

  65. Power savings
