The Carrier CACW18EA3W 18K Estra 3 Star 1.5 Ton Window AC is available at a price of Rs. 24,990/- in online stores. Let us take a closer look at this AC through this review.

DESIGN:

The Carrier CACW18EA3W 18K Estra 3 Star is a window AC with the typical boxy form factor which has not changed over the years. The front faceplate is made of strong ABS plastic whereas the rest of the body is made of metal. Unlike split ACs, there is only one unit which houses the compressor and well as the blower fan. This makes it noisier than the split AC whose compressor unit is placed outside the room. This window AC can be fitted in a window or an opening made especially for the AC. It weighs in at 56kg. Since the blower and the compressor are housed in the same unit, there is no need for external pipes and tubes connecting the two parts. The blower vents are located on the right side of the AC’s face.

The outer vents are painted red along with the filter net’s handle, which sticks out. Below the vents is the control panel of the AC. It also has the same red coloured background with white markings. It also houses the LED display which shows the current set temperature. The control panel also houses the Power Button, the Menu Button, the high and low buttons and some LED indicators for Mode, Fan Speed, Smart Diagnosis, Energy Saver and Powerful Air Flow. The rest of the AC’s face is taken up by the ‘Concentric Arcs’ design, behind which lies the filter net. The faceplate of the Carrier 18K Estra 3 Star CACW18EA3W also carries the Carrier logo and Estra branding. It comes with a bundled remote control which has no LED display. Overall, the design review of this AC passes the scrutiny with flying colours.

It has a ‘Powerful Airflow’ mode which allows the fan to work at speeds above the maximum level and helps in rapid cooling. However, this feature consumes more energy than is required for daily operations. At the other end of the scale, it has an ‘Energy Saver’ mode which runs the AC at optimum energy levels. While this mode saves energy, the cooling performance might be affected. The filter net at the front is easy to remove and clean. The fan works at three speeds; low, mid and high. There’s also an auto mode for the fan speed.
