Why Buy The Hitachi 1.5 Ton 5 Star Inverter Split AC?

Advanced Compressor: The product comes with a variable speed inverter compressor, which can adjust the speed depending on the heat load inside the room. As a result, this AC prevents energy wastage, helps to keep electricity bills low, cools down the room very quickly, and minimises noise.

Tropical Inverter Technology: If you live somewhere where the temperature rises very high during the summer, this AC is perfect for you. One of our testing locations is in Delhi, which usually has very hot summers- its record for the highest temperature being 45.6°C. The AC was able to perform smoothly and cool the room quickly without issue.

Odour Free Air: Most product pages for this AC won’t emphasise its FrostWash feature, but we think that’s one of the best things about it. FrostWash is the name of a self-cleaning system where moisture on the heat exchanger is frozen and melted before being flushed away. This also removes the smelly mould and dirt gathered in the moisture, making the air cleaner and fresher.

Low Energy Consumption: It only has an Inverter for active power saving and no other extra features. However, the inverter is well optimised and does its job incredibly well. That’s why the AC has a 5-star BEE rating. Our experts also give it a 5-star rating based on all the positive results we’ve gotten while reviewing it.

Penta Sensor: Not all ACs come with high-end sensors like this one. It contains a microcontroller that can do several tasks efficiently. For one, it allows the AC to offer perfect cooling, even when the temperature is far higher than normal. Aside from that, it also optimises the loads while providing additional protection to the AC’s components simultaneously.

Inner Grooved Copper Ensures Faster Cooling: The inner grooved copper tubes of the Hitachi AC are designed to increase the rate of heat transfer. The micro-grooves also help create a turbulent refrigerant flow, which leads to an even lower temperature difference between the heat exchanger and working fluid. This results in increased cooling efficiency, stable operation, and low noise levels.

Some Issues We’ve Noticed With the Model

Low-Quality Remote: Don’t let the product pictures fool you- the remote isn’t as good as it seems. For one, the display is rather small and hard to read. The overall design is basic as well, unlike most other AC remotes, which are much more advanced. There’s no temperature info on the main unit’s display either, so adjusting its settings might be very inconvenient for you.

Swinging Feature Is Basic: The swing mode only makes the AC’s flaps go up and down. They can’t cool side to side, which may be a deal-breaker for some, as the feature is necessary for receiving uniform cooling.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the compressor take to start?

It will generally start instantly or will have a 5-second delay at most.

How long is the copper pipe that comes with the AC?

It’s about 3 metres.

Are there any extra charges during installation?

Yes, they’ll charge for a stand.

Do the swing flaps switch back to the position they were last in before the AC was turned off?

Yes, they do.

 

Verdict

We advise trying out Hitachi 1.5 Ton 5 Star Inverter Split AC for the sensor alone, as it significantly increases the cooling efficiency of the AC. The overall performance is good, too. If you need a good AC for a medium-sized room, this is an option you can go for. It’s also a good choice if you need something inexpensive.
