Recommended Posts


initial cost: cheap (you can get a decent one for 12k below)

operating cost: average (electricity bill averages usually 4k)

maintenance: cheap (cleaning just cost 500 pesos)

reliability: good (my panasonic AC is 4 years old already, still cool even at 20 degrees; prior to that, our condura AC lasted 9 years)



initial cost: expensive (besides the AC, the compressor is another one to buy)

operating cost: cheap (average bill from my friends are around 2k with refrigerator and other appliances, around 3.5k)

maintenance: expensive (cleaning is 2k)

reliability: varies. if the placement of the compressor and AC is done by a good company, it can last for a very long time.

There are a lot of things to consider in choosing a suitable air conditioner. As a mechanical engr. We consider the dimension of the room, numbers of windows and light bulbs, and the walls if it is insulated. Compute the total heat load to be overcome by the air conditioning, then we choose the right air conditioner. So, gaano po ba kalaki yung room the palalamigin?
