Don’t know which one to choose? We are listing down a few factors here to make your next AC purchase easier and hassle-free. Now choose the best AC brand in Bangladesh for your homes!
A split conditioner will require more space in terms of one unit inside the house and the compressor unit placed outside the house. However, one needs to take note that it is often difficult to find a big opening for window AC in flats and then choosing a Split AC is the only option left. Moreover, the biggest benefit of a split AC is that it can be installed to any distance without hindering the air ventilation. In contrast, with window AC, one is restricted to install at small window openings wherever proper ventilation is available. Daikin’s FTKL Series has been designed to withstand high corrosive environment and comes with features such as Dust PM2.5 Filter, Econo mode, Coanda airflow, Power chill operation and more. With its inverter technology, this split air conditioner would not only aid you in saving your utility bills but also add to the style quotient of your space.
An advantage that split ACs have over window ACs is that the compressor of the split air conditioner is placed outside and quite far away from the space to be air conditioned, and therefore, they produce almost no or negligible noise. Along with their quiet operation, split ACs are often chosen by consumers to add to the aesthetics of their home spaces as the bulk of the unit is outside the room.
Also, if you are someone who puts more importance on the interior aesthetics and factors like quiet operation, then split ACs would suit well to your needs. Daikin’s FTL split AC with its stabilizer free functioning has been engineered keeping in mind’s today’s dynamic air conditioning needs and strives to deliver comfortable room conditions while maximizing energy savings.
The power consumption and energy efficiency of both the variants (split and window) depend a lot on the star rating. Higher the star rating, the more efficient is the AC. For instance, a 5 -star AC will consume almost 10% less power than a 4-star AC. Thus, there is a 10% difference in energy consumption with increase in just one star. So, if you are buying an AC for a small room and normal usage with respect to time, a 3-star 1.5-ton window AC would be an ideal choice. However, if you are buying an AC for a bigger space, and for the usage of 15 hours a day, choose a 5-star 1-ton split AC to save more energy and money on utility bills. The difference comes when you start comparing the inverter and non-inverter variants of both these ACs. An inverter split AC is better than an inverter Window AC in terms of energy efficiency. All air conditioner manufacturers in Bangladesh are aware of the energy efficiency rating of the air conditioner unit; you can also ask the retailers in case of any confusion. Also, nowadays, VRV technology is most preferred in modern households because of the various advanvced features that it comes with.
