Air-conditioners have evolved from being a luxury item to being almost a necessity, in the past few years. This can be attributed to the changing climate or the more affordable prices. Whatever the reasons may be, the air-conditioner is now a mainstream home appliance. Voltas Ac’s is one of India’s leading air conditioning brands and has been associated with cooling in India for more than six decades.
They were the first manufacturer to introduce Split ACs in India. The Voltas 155CY is a 1.2-ton split AC from the Classic Series by Voltas which carries a 5-Star energy rating. It features an aluminium condenser coil and rotary compressor for more efficiency. It also focuses on health preservation by packing in following filters; Anti-dust filter, Catechin filter, Aaron Bacterium (Red) and Silver Ion Filter. Voltas 1.2 Ton 5 Star155CY Split AC is available at a price of Rs. 24,499/- in online stores.
The Voltas 1.2 Ton 5 Star 155CY is a split AC made mostly of ABS plastic. The AC is divided into two units. The outdoor unit is the heart of the AC and that is where the compressor is located. The indoor unit is the dispenser of the cooled air. This is where all the filters are located. This AC is shipped with three meters of copper connecting pipe which carries the cooled air from the compressor to the blower. The unit holding the compressor and which sits outside is made out of metal, for longevity, and is painted in off-white colour. This helps it to remain relatively cooler in the outdoor environment.
The indoor unit is also painted in the same off-white colour, but is made of plastic. The blower unit is a typical design which means it has a long body with vents at the bottom which can swing vertically to dispense the cooled air evenly. There is a LED display on the right corner which displays the current temperature. The supplied remote control has its own LCD display and it works well in controlling the AC. The outdoor unit weighs 32kg and the indoor unit weighs in at 12.3kg.
The Voltas 1.2 Ton 155CY has a 5-star energy certification which means it is one of the most energy-efficient cooling systems available in the market. It features a high 3.5 Efficiency Energy Ratio Rotary Compressor which results in more efficiency and savings. It has a rated cooling capacity of 4000W and it features auto air-swing and selectable air swing for an even distribution of the cooled air.
The AC also packs in four different types of filters, Anti-dust filter, Catechin filter, Aaron Bacterium (Red) and Silver Ion Filter to filter out the pollutants and effluents from the air. Its other features include Auto-Restart, Sleep Mode, On-timer and Off-timer, Dehumidifier, Self-Diagnosis and Dual Temperature Display.
The compressor unit uses R22 refrigerant gas. The indoor noise level of the blower unit is 42dB and the indoor air supply volume is 850 CMH (Cubic-Metres per Hour). The Voltas 15CCY can cool a room quite fast depending on the atmospheric conditions and save energy at the same time.
