Inverter AC’s are talk of the town. They consume less power, provide better cooling with uniform temperature and don’t cost a fortune. If you want to know the best 2 ton AC to buy in India then you have come the right place.

In this article we will see the best 2 ton AC’s available in Indian market. Mind you this list is purely made by considering premium brands only. I have not tested any one of these AC’s (if you have read a blog which says they have tested AC’s then they are 100% lying) but I have researched over twenty five 2 ton AC’s and compare them under several parameters before finalizing this list.

Selection Factors For Best 2 Ton AC in India in 2020:

I have compiled a list of top twenty five 2 ton split air conditioner available on amazon and compared each one of them based on the following parameters.

  1. Power Consumption – This is the most worrying aspect about air conditioners which most people have hence, I have given more emphasis on power consumption. Buying an air conditioner (AC) that consumes less electricity will give you enormous savings in electricity bill in long term.
  2. Brand Value – I have given emphasis on the brands presence in India. You will not find a single air conditioner from mediocre brands, only premium brands are considered. I believe it is better to pay more upfront for a product than at latter stages while using it.
  3. Product Reviews – All the AC’s in the list have got excellent reviews on amazon and other e-commerce sites. This is a testimony that these air conditioners are trustworthy and many people are buying it.
  4. Cost – If the air conditioner costs a fortune, then it’s not worth buying it. Hence I have only considered air conditioner that offer competitive pricing.
  5. Energy Saving Stars – If you are buying an air conditioner in 2020, then at least buy one which is rated by BEE with more than 3 stars. I have only considered air conditioner which has more than 3 energy saving stars. You can find the BEE star rating on the sticker which is normally in the front part of an air conditioner.
  6. Only copper condenser AC is included: I found that majority of AC’s on e-commerce store have copper condenser which is better than aluminium for humid climate like India.Hence I have only considered copper AC’s.

Now let’s see the list !!

To effectively use this table just click on the header of a column which is an important buying factor for you. For example, if power consumption of an air conditioner is important to you, then click on the annual units consumption column and the table will be filtered from lowest to highest power consumption or highest to lowest power consumption.

Note: I found few AC’s with large number of review but I have not included them in this list because they were old models from 2017 and 2018.

The calculated values are for test conditions where outside temperature is 30 degree Celsius to 32 degree Celsius and AC is set at 26 degree Celsius to 28 degree Celsius . In real life the outside temperature is higher and inside temperature is much lower. Hence, you can expect 5 % – 10 % variation in the quoted power consumption.

Before you go through the ranking it is important to know that BEE calculates AC annual energy consumption considering 1600 hours of operation in a year under standard operating conditions. The actual value will be less or more depending on the way you use your AC, climatic condition and operational hours.

I have shortlisted the best 1 Ton split inverter AC under Rs 40,000, Rs 50,000, Rs 60,000 and Rs 65,000 for your reference.

When to buy a Rs 40,000 AC & when to buy Rs 60,000 AC:

The cheapest 2 Ton AC in the list is the Sanyo 2 Ton 3 Star Dual Inverter Wide Split AC (Copper, SI/SO-20T3SCIA). It cost around Rs 37,490 and consumes 1,295 kWh annually.

Whereas the most expensive AC in the list is the Daikin 1.8 Ton 5 Star Inverter Split AC (Copper, JTKJ60TV). It costs around Rs 62,500 and consumes 957 kWh annually.

Let me remind you again that the annual power consumption is calculated for 1600 hours of annual operation under test condition. This translates to around 4 hours of daily operation for the entire year.

Lets say you plan to buy the expensive Daikin AC (Rs 25,000 more than Sanyo), is it worth the investment?. lets find out using different scenario.

Case 1: You will use your Daikin AC for 1600 hours annually (4 hours daily),

  • For 1600 hours of annual operation, we know that the Sanyo AC will consume around 338 units extra power than the Daikin AC, which translates to an electricity bill of Rs 3,380 (assume electricity tariff is Rs 10).
  • This means it will take around seven years to recover the extra Rs 25,000 which you have to pay for Daikin AC.

Case 2: You will use your Daikin AC for 3200 hours annually (8 hours daily),

  • For 3200 hours of annual operation, we know that the Voltas AC will consume around 676 units extra power than the Daikin AC, which translates to an electricity bill of Rs 6,760 (assume electricity tariff is Rs 10).
  • This means it will take just four years to recover the extra Rs 25,000 which you have to pay for Daikin AC.

Hence is you are buying AC for your office or a place where it is going to be used daily for 8 hours, then it makes complete sense to buy the expensive Daikin AC as it is 25 % more energy efficient than the Sanyo AC.

Things I have not Considered In 2 Ton AC Comparison Test:

I have only given emphasis to AC’s star rating and power consumption, but you should also look at the various features the air conditioner is offering before making your final decision.

Some popular feature are Wifi, anti bacterial filter, anti dust filter, and more.

If you just want your AC to cool your room then select the most energy efficient AC you can buy in your budget and give emphasis on warranty if you are looking for a long term air conditioning solution.

If you are one of those guys who is uncomfortable buying air conditioners online then follow this simple offline AC buying guide.

Offline AC buying guide:

  1. Check The BEE Label – The first thing you should look in an AC is the BEE label. It has important information like annual power consumption of AC, type of compressor used and all. You should go for the most energy efficient AC in your budget.
  2. Look At Warranty – Opt for AC offering longer warranty. In my opinion most of us use AC for well over 5 years hence, you should always look for AC which offers 10 years warranty.
  3. Ask for Extended Warranty – If you can’t find an AC with 10 years warranty in your budget then, ask for extended warranty. Most companies offer 5 years extended warranty for nominal charge.
Conclusion:

To conclude this article, my pick for the best 2 Ton AC to buy in India in 2020 are as follows:

  1. Sanyo 2 Ton 3 Star Dual Inverter Wide Split AC (Copper, SI/SO-20T3SCIA) (Under Rs 40,000)
  2. Carrier 2 Ton 3 Star Inverter Split AC (Copper, ESKO+ HYBRIDJET INV R410A,CAI24EK3R49F0). (Under Rs 50,000)
  3. Daikin 1.8 Ton 4 Star Inverter Split AC (Copper, FTKP60TV16U) (Under Rs 60,000)
