Many people does not know about inverter Ac but this is the special factor to consider in buying guide on Ac. Here inverter means not that it works even if power has gone but i will explain true meaning of inverter Ac. In real it converts Ac current to Dc current.
An inverter air conditioning unit features a variable speed compressor motor that adjusts the refrigerant flow inside the unit to regulate it’s cooling and heating capacity as needed. The motor of inverter Ac remains on 24/7 even though it saves more electricity. When the temperature of the room decreases motor does not stop but it remains on with minimal speed and when room temperature increase motor works with maximal speed.
This type of product gives us a satisfying work but it is too expansive. It is not affordable for Whose economical condition is medium.

5. Which Features You Want???
a). Energy Efficiency
In these days energy is very useful for us, So it is our responsibility to save it. Everybody also wants to their Ac to be low energy consumer and give maximum cooling. You can determine the energy efficiency of any Ac model with the help of star ratting of that model.
This star rating range is 1 to 5 which is given by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). For more energy efficiency you should buy an Ac with higher star ratting. Obviously with higher star rating Ac is more expensive. So for middle class family i recommended 3 Star Ac.
b). De-humidification Mode
Also known as dry mode. Without modifying the temperature, this mode will clean your room’s atmosphere and makes your sleep comfortable.
This mode is useful for who lives in coastal area or in the area with the high level of humidity. Almost Ac absorb a humidity automatically but in some air conditioners there is an advance mode de-humidification mode. We have to required to start that mode in coastal area.
Air filtration is more important to clean indoor environment. This filter removes invisible substance and dust from room atmosphere and cleans room. It also removes dust particle. Moreover air comes through the filter, overall filter blows neat and clean air.
In order for this Ac filter to work evenly you should clean a net of Ac at certain times.
When you increase temperature of your Ac it becomes heater but here something different from that in the era of advance technology. After just a clicking one button you can convert your Ac from cooler to heater. This feature mainly useful at a time of winter. You have not need to buy extra heater to maintain the room temperature.
