10 Best 1.5 Ton Window & Split AC 2016 to Survive This Sizzling Summer

The wrath of summers is upon us in full swing and without a decent air conditioning unit in your home or office, the weather conditions can be compared to a steel furnace these days. The season is not planning on showing any mercy and that is why you need to be well equipped with appropriate weapons to defend yourself against the onslaught of this ‘fiend fyre’ level heat.

In this article we’re going to discuss about some of this state of the art weaponry that you can have in your arsenal for beating the heat this summer.

You can choose from the conventional Window ACs to Split ACs and get them installed in your bedrooms and living room for aiding you in this war against summer.

In this article, I am going to suggest you some of the really good options available in both these types of segments.

But first, let us try to understand the difference between both of them:

Window AC

This is the most common type of air conditioning unit which is used in majority of the homes. A window AC is one, whose all the components, like compressor, condenser, cooling coil, evaporator, expansion valve etc., are enclosed in a single unit. They are called window ACs as they are installed in the window sill of the room. The cooling unit is facing the inside of the room whereas the compressor and other components are left hanging outside the window.
