Best 1.5 ton split ac under 30000 in India

Summers are here in India. The temperature is rising day by day. It can go as high as 45 degrees celsius at the peak in times.

And I can’t imagine living in the hot summers without an air-conditioner.

If you are thinking the same then I have compiled a list of the best 1.5 ton split AC under 30000 rupees range.

I have done thorough market research, asked the owners of the respective ACs and have read tons of reviews online on various portals.

Best 1.5 ton split AC under 30000 in India (At a Glance)

What to expect in 30000 range

You have made your mind that you need a split AC of 1.5 tonnage that too under 30k range.

In this price range, you will not find any top-class brand ACs like Mitsubishi, Daikin, Hitachi, OGeneral.

But still, you can find good budget-friendly brands like samsung, carrier, voltas, godrej, whirlpool, etc

Generally, 1.5 ton AC can cool a room of 120 to 200 square feet but it also depends on the respective AC

The cost to have cool rooms in summers is not completed with only buying an AC. An AC needs occasional servicing. 

In the case of split AC installation and servicing both are costly. So you have to not only look at the specs of an AC while buying but also research the quality of service the company provided in your area.

Almost all new ACs are coming with inverter technology, now we have even dual inverter, triple inverter technology.

In the 30000 range you get all ACs with inverter technology, but getting dual and triple inverters is rare.

Almost all ACs are having 3-star BEE ratings.

I have put Whirlpool MagiCool Pro AC on the 5th list of best ACs.

Whirlpool is an American multinational company that makes home appliances.

Normally you would have connected whirlpool with washing machines but they also make other home appliances.

The company claims that not only the coiling used is copper but also the indoor and outdoor unit evaporator and condenser, both are 100% copper making the AC cool better and last longer

For removing dust and minute particles from the air it uses a PM2.5 filter along with Hepa Filter. This filter not only clears the air from pollutants but also removes the bad smell and odor.

Like other inverter ACs, it can operate under a wide voltage range, and so it does not require an extra stabilizer. However, for better protection against the unpredictable future, it is better to use a stabilizer with it.

The AC is smart enough to self-diagnose the errors and AC malfunctioning to display it on the panel.  

Pros
  • MPFI Technology
  • 6th Sense FastCool Technology
  • PM2.5 + Hepa Filter
Cons

Final Thoughts

After-sales service is more important than buying an AC. Servicing quality is not the same everywhere. 

So do research the quality of servicing in your area.
