Best Energy Efficient Budget ACs That Do Not Burn A Hole In Your Pocket 

If you are searching for the best AC that is economical as well as power efficient you have landed at the right place. In this article, I will be telling you about the best available options in this category. But before we proceed, I would strongly advise you to go through my previous article on ACs in which I have explained in details all technical aspects that you must know before buying an air-conditioner. For reading that article please click on the link given here.
The foremost thing you need to keep in mind is the fact that Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has cut down the ratings of all non-inverter Split ACs manufactured in 2017 or before by 2-star. It means if you go for a 5-star non-inverter AC manufactured in 2017 or before, in reality, it is just a 3-star AC and would consume much more power than a 3-star inverter AC. This ruling of BEE does not apply to inverter ACs. A 3-star inverter AC manufactured in 2017 continues to hold its 3-star status even in 2018.
I have not included any split AC over here, because of this reason, as all split ACs manufactured in 2017, which are coming at an attractive price have got a cut in their star ratings and even a 5-star split AC is now only 3-star and thus are bound to consume more power.
All these air-conditioners that I have listed here are the most power efficient budget ACs that come with multiple features to take care of all your needs.
