Whirlpool AC Review Parameter #2- Condenser Coil

The company uses the standard 100% copper coil in its air conditioner units. Currently, it is the best material that can be used for making condenser coil considering both the economic and performance aspects. A condenser coil made of copper material has the highest efficiency & thermal conductivity compared to other options.

Here, Whirlpool lags behind its competitors by not providing any weather protection or grooved pipes, which might have taken the condenser coil’s performance to the next level.

Whirlpool AC Review Parameter #3- Cooling Quality of Whirlpool

The company used the eco-friendly R32 refrigerant, which the standard refrigerant type used in modern-day ACs due to environmental concerns. The R32 is one of the highest performing coolants available for domestic usage. However, using the R32 is very common in ACs nowadays.

Other than that, to improve the cooling experience, Whirlpool has a few other modifications and technology changes. Here is a brief description:

3D cool technology

The indoor unit body is modified to intake the hot air from three directions, i.e., from the top & both sides. From the bottom side, it releases the cold air. The design modification is done so that hot air can be removed from the room faster & the room can be cooled more quickly and efficiently.

The 3D cool technology helps the AC to cool the room even at a high ambient temperature around 52-55 degrees Celsius. As an added advantage, the AC can throw the cool air up to 12m providing uniform cooling to the farthest corners of the room.

Buy if : You are on a Budget

cyborg wisdomCyborg tip:

Suppose you don’t have the proper power outlet for AC installation or don’t have considered how the drain & outlet is going to work. In that case, it’s possible that you might end up paying a whole lot more money to the installation engineer.

 Buying the installation accessories like wall bracket, copper pipe, power plug, wires, etc., from the service engineer at the time of installation will always cost you more. So, it’s better to order the extra accessories online or purchase from the local market. All you need is to make estimates of measurement & buy them prior to calling the company for installation.
