5 Energy Efficient Air Conditioners To Beat Summer Heat!

Indian summers are some of the hardest months. Here are 5 energy efficient air conditioners that will help save money and the planet.

Climate change is real, and so are the soaring electricity bills! Indian summers are some of the hardest months in any household. Here are 5 energy efficient air conditioners that will help you save on the bill and the planet.

Being born and brought up in the Northeast means, I have experienced better summer days in my childhood. But with large-scale deforestation, infrastructural changes, and climate change, the summer no longer feels happy.

For the last two years, the summer has been unbearable in my little valley, and last week I decided we will buy an air conditioner for the house! And being a middle-class household, every day has been a battle of choices, my parents don’t want an AC because, they fear the future electricity bills, and they have concerns for the environment.

So, I searched for air conditioners, that met their requirements; energy efficient, pocket friendly and long-lasting.

What do energy efficient air conditioners even mean?

According to my retired mechanical engineer father, “Energy efficiency simply means, reducing the amount of energy, aka electricity or fuel, required by a product to provide its optimal services.”

Air conditioners have been notoriously linked to high power consumption and denting people’s pockets. But that was the case with early models! The best thing about technology and the human mind is; we are always working to improve things.

Climate change, and people’s zeal to save money, have made us upgrade and refined many of our techs. And among them, energy efficient products are one of our best answers to the current energy crisis.

5 energy efficient air conditioners

Here is the list of 5 energy efficient air conditioners that will help save on the bill and the planet; which my parents approve of! Before we deep dive, remember, each of these air conditioners have energy efficiency embedded into their functionality.
