Stay Cool this summer: Top 4+ Star Rated Window ACs on Croma

We've compiled a list of the top window air conditioners available on Croma, with a BEE rating of at least 4 stars.

As summer approaches, many people turn to air conditioning to stay comfortable indoors. Window air conditioners are popular for those looking to cool a single room or small space. With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to determine which window AC unit is the best fit for your needs. Energy bills matter too, so to help narrow down the choices, we’ve compiled a list of the top window air conditioners available on Croma, with a BEE rating of at least 4 stars.

Things to keep in mind when buying a window AC

Tonnage: This is a unit used to measure the cooling capacity of the air conditioner based on the size and other features of your room. Ideally, rooms of around 120-150 square require a window AC of 1 ton, and those with 180-220 square feet require an AC with a 2-ton capacity.

Compressor: The compressor is one of the most important parts of an air conditioner. Nowadays, Inverter based compressor ACs are more widely available in the market. The key difference between the two air-conditioner types lies in the compressor’s ability to regulate its motor speed to adjust to the room’s temperature. Once a room is cool, inverter air conditioners lower the speed of the compressor motor to save energy and cool the air continuously.

In comparison, non-inverter motors only run at full speed and then shuts off when the room temperature reaches the desired temperature. This repetitive ON-OFF process creates more noise and consumes more energy.

Power Efficiency: Another factor to consider when purchasing an air conditioner. It is always best to look at the energy star ratings before you purchase a window AC. Since we have already narrowed down the list by including 4-star and above ACs, you don’t need to worry about this factor.
