Theres alot of bogus talk going around in market regarding the actual current consumption of AC's. Every dealer and shop keeper has a different story to tell and mostly they promote the brands which leave them with highest margin on sale. All this leads to confusion. All 1.5 ton AC's in market have clearly pasted a sticker on their indoor units which states consumption of around 8amps, the notorious Mr. Slim also has same power consumption stated on it (8amps) but dealers + pakistani awam keep saying they consume 6 amps.
I met a dealer who was selling SHARP ac's, they are new in market and he was telling me, they are even more efficient then Mr Slim and 1.5 ton SHRAP only consumes 4amps! Well all this honestly sound like biggest load of BS to me because for one, if they consume less, why the hell would manufacturer gona write something else on their products, secondly, does this even make any frigging sense? How can some AC consume 4amps, do they have some mechanism to run on air instead of electricity.
Can some educated person shed some light on this?
