They come in with inverter technology designed to save 30-35 percent of electricity bills, also helps in the longevity of the product. 3-star rating elite AC gives up to 40% Energy saving while 5-star rating gives up to 50% Energy saving.

Regular servicing of the parts

Some area of the common problem faced is dirt and dust that can be avoided easily. A dirty Air Conditioning unit means more electricity bills and higher energy costs.
Avoid Non-stop Usage
Turning off the Air conditioning unit at regular intervals of time is another wise way to save money on bills and maintain the validity of the product. Two highly advised ways are when you are not in the room or not in use, turning it off and also turning it off when you are asleep is another way to save energy along with, of course, saving money. Using it 24/7 also damages the components of the AC unit and leads to parts not running effectively.
Install at the right place
Installing your AC at a strategic place is another tip for better use. Many home appliances such as the refrigerator, cooking stove, or any other kitchen appliances, where there is less ventilation, will create heat in the room. This might result in poor functioning of the AC since there is more heat in the room. This will result in an increase in AC usage and load. If the AC is placed at the right place it can help in reducing power consumption. For an average 150 sq. ft room, you need a 1.50-ton capacity air conditioner.
