Here’s Why a 5 Star AC Consumes Less Power


The summer season is set to begin in India, and it is the time of the year to start using your ACs to enjoy the season without humidity and discomfort.

Have you also been planning to bring home a brand new AC but confused on its Star rating? You are not alone!


Many potential AC customers in India are not able to understand the Star rating of an AC. They end up purchasing an AC priced lower with fewer stars leading to an increase in the AC temperature.

Hence, to make to understand the concept of the Star rating of the ACs and why buying a 5 Star AC is right; here is a post to help you out! 

What is the Star rating on an AC?

Nowadays, you can see almost all home appliances in India such as ACs, fridge, and more carrying Star on them. Stars on an appliance denote the energy efficiency of it. It means the amount of power that it will consume to cool your room.

Suppose you got a 3 Star AC and your friend has a 5 Star AC, then your friend will be able to save up to 25% more energy on its operation. As a result, your friend will be paying up to 25% lower power bills.

Needless to say, you will need to pay an extra of up to 25% on the electricity bill which may hamper your budget.

Hence, it is suggested by experts to invest a bit more and buy an AC with more stars to pay lower power bills later.

Here’s why a 5 Star AC consumes less power than others

The higher the Star rating of an air conditioner, the higher will be its cooling efficiency as well. For example, if an AC has a 5 Star rating, it will be able to cool a large area with less power consumption than ACs with a lower Star rating.

A 3 Star AC comes with an Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) between 2.9 and 3.09, while a 5 Star AC has an EER of 3.3 and more. The difference here means that a 3 Star AC would cost you around Rs.580 per month in power charges. On the other hand, a 5 Star AC of equivalent capacity would cost Rs.500 as per the energy bill.

What does it show? It indicates that a 5 Star air conditioner is actually inexpensive in the long run.

Even when you use a 5 Star AC where a 3 Star AC (area or room) is required, even then you will end up paying more as the light bill irrespective of the Star rating.

Overall, it is good to buy and install a 5 Star AC in a large space to enjoy paying a lower electricity bill. However, for small rooms of up to 90-100 square feet, you should buy a 3 Star AC to save on the power consumption.
