    Hi Guys,

    Since I am a be Indian, buy Indian kinda guy (lol), I am trying to buy an AC from an Indian company.

    1.5 Ton Split AC (preferably BlueStar) with Inverter technology. Can anyone help me out here with some advice.

    Thanks

    Bluestar is good, but please consider Voltas also. I have good experience with Voltas. Even I am a "be Indian, buy Indian" guy, and I bought two Voltas ACs 2 years back. After-sales service has been good.

    By the way, I am sure you know this, but for everyone's information: when we speak of "be Indian, buy Indian", it is critical that the manufacturing should be in India. Even a foreign company is ok if they manufacture in India. And an Indian company like Reliance air conditioners is NOT OK because they import from China and put their sticker on the AC.

    Blue Star manufactures in India. I know about that. Doesn't Voltas use Samsung compressors in their products?

    I don't think Voltas uses Samsung compressors, as far as I know.

    Daikin is way ahead of other ACs. Got one last year and am a big fan.

    Daikin expensive. Voltas not that cheap. Samsung cheap.

    I have a Voltas in office. I have had water leakage problem that they just didn't rectify and line with this AC. My cousins use Voltas and have no problem. Guess I wasn't lucky.

    If you like to buy Indian then go for TATA Voltas since it's a good one both in terms of money and value.

    I like to buy Indian stuff too and we have 3 Voltas AC's.

    Buy Indian. Be Indian. Maybe Japanese import lobby paid you to buy their stuff. :p

    Daikin is a good choice. The only downside is it is expensive, but well worth the money.

    Thanks guys for all the replies. Helped me immensely. Daikin foe me is out of the question @sob cause it's too expensive.

    Same for carrier @Kunal Biswas.

    I'll flip a coin between Blue Star and Voltas (although the latter does not seem to have ACs that have inverter technology).

    BlueStar's much better , especially if you can find a Taiwan built machine , significantly better then the locally made ones ,

    I guess they are easier to find if u are looking for a 2 Ton machine.
    I own one , its one of the best .
    Only thing better is an iGeneral A.C.
