A collection of the best of air conditioners at the budget price of 20,000 to 32,000 INR
The purpose of creating this compilation of all these AC’s is to make sure the best ACs are selected by you, thus reducing the work of searching and selecting from 1000’s of different AC’s available today.
We live in a world where it’s impossible to last without some of the luxuries and Air Conditioning is surely one of them, a few people prefer other mechanical coolers and Fans to help them survive the heat in the summer but as this post is specifically dealing with the Indian crowd, I’d like to let you know that the Indian weather is not that easy to understand. It might get really hot sometimes and a ceiling fan or a cooler wouldn’t be enough to keep you from feeling the heat. Hence, here we are with the air conditioners.
A lot of people don’t seem to buy Air Conditioners because they are expensive and really heavy on the wallet when it comes to maintenance and the rise in electric bill. Hence, we have collected 5 Air conditioners that are light on your wallet in all the aspects. All are at least having a 3 Star Energy Saving rating and are in the budget range of Rs.20,000 to Rs.30,000. The products have similar performance and differ in size and company and even the prices in some cases. All the products have links that will take you to the online e-commerce stores that enable you to order them sitting right there in front of your computer or handheld devices.
1) Hitachi RAU312HVDOB 1 Ton 3 Star Split AC
- Smaller than the other ACs in this range.
- Price a bit on the higher side.
- Superior Quality and Brand Value.
- Instant On technology
We start with one of the famous brands ‘Hitachi’ and as mentioned, these are the best you could get in a budgeted price range in the Indian market. The actual price of this product is approximately 35K-36K but during the time of this article being published, a special deal is offering this AC for around 28K.
|AC Features||Hitachi RAU312HVDOB 1 Ton 3 Star Split AC|
|CAPACITY||1 Ton , An entry level capacity for almost all the Air Conditioners available today and is efficient enough to cool a mid-sized room with no problem at all.|
|POWER||1070 W of power with AC 230 V, 50Hz of Input power which is also standard for the 1 ton ACs and shouldn’t be too heavy on the electricity bills.|

2) Sansui SSZ55.WS1-MDA 1.5 Ton 5 Star Split AC
- Auto Restart functionality
- Worth the money
One of the best companies in India in the field of Air Conditioning and here’s a really good Air Conditioner for the price of 26,000-28,000. This is the original price of the AC and not on offer. I would have said this is the best buy at this range but we do have other companies that are giving it a tough competition. Hopefully, the same AC at an offer price would have made it to the top of our list.
|AC Features||Sansui SSZ55.WS1-MDA 1.5 Ton 5 Star Split AC|
|CAPACITY||1.5 Ton capacity which is a lot for mid to large-sized rooms and would cool it within minutes.|
|POWER||Outputs 1480 W of power while taking in AC 230V at 50 Hz which is the same as the Hitachi model but with a lot more of power.|
|ENERGY SAVING RATINGS||This one comes with a 5 Star Rating; it takes in equal power as the Hitachi but produces a better performance so you are definitely saving a lot on the electric bill.|
3) Kenstar KSM55.WN1 1.5 Ton 5 Star Split AC
- Uses aluminium condenser which is lighter but can be a problem in harsh conditions
- Turbo Cooling mode
- Auto Clean and Auto Air Swing
- Anti-Bacteria Filter
Another well-known brand and this is similar to the Sansui, but with addition of a few more features and is comparatively lower on the price. You get this AC for around 25K-26K and with additional 1K-2K, you can get a voltage stabilizer to maximize the performance. Both these are available on Amazon.
|AC Features||Kenstar KSM55.WN1 1.5 Ton 5 Star Split AC|

4) Onida S123PBL 1 Ton 3 Star Split AC
- No Anti-Bacteria Filter
- Dust Filter
- Low noise
- Use copper coil
This AC is for only Rs.23,000 at the moment with an EMI option of Rs.1,164. While this is not as powerful as the above two 1.5 Ton ACs, it is the ideal choice with a person who needs an AC for a small room. It is one of the bestseller ACs on Flipkart.
|AC Features||Onida S123PBL 1 Ton 3 Star Split AC|
|CAPACITY||1 Ton, Cools small to mid-sized rooms without any problem.|
|POWER||1117 W at 230V , Similar power but a little more powerful than the Hitachi mention above.|
|ENERGY SAVING RATINGS||3 Star Energy Saving rating.|
5) Hyundai HY18S3G 1.5 Ton 3 Star Split AC
- Aluminium Cooling coil
- 4 Way Air deflection
- Auto Swinging
- Auto Restart
And the last one comes from Hyundai and this is the cheapest option available at around 21K. The price might decrease or increase based on the demands and it is a top seller from Amazon in this range. The capacity is enough for a large room but the energy savings are less.
|AC Features||Hyundai HY18S3G 1.5 Ton 3 Star Split AC|
|CAPACITY||1.5 Ton, Enough for a mid to large sized room|
|ENERGY SAVING RATINGS||3 Stars , Comparatively lower than other available 1.5 ton ACs|
We can see that the choices available are really high and each of these Air Conditioners try to excel the other in one or the other field. Most of them have free installation charges but that also depends on the area and might cost you from around Rs.300-1500 based on the company and the officials. So it is upon you to take into account your requirements and priorities before going for any of these aforesaid air conditioners; we are sure you would not be disappointed with your selection.
