10 things to know about new government rule for Air conditioners

If you planning to buy new air conditioner this summer then you have to know the new regulations set by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) in consultation with the central government mandates that the default temperature of all room air conditioners sold in India will be 24-degree-Celsius. Here is everything you need to know about the new rules for ACs:

As per the new notification by BEE, the 24-degree-Celsius default temperature setting has been made mandatory for all room air conditioners covered under the ambit of BEE star-labelling program.

The default temperature setting of 24-degree-Celsius doesn’t mean that you will not be able to change the settings and lower the temperature up to 16-degree-Celsius. Default temperature simply means the temperature at which the AC turns on. You can reduce or increase the temperature .

In a press release, the BEE said, “All brands and types of star labelled room air conditioners…which are rated from one star to five star, based on their relative energy efficiencies up to a rated cooling capacity of 10,465 Watts (9,000 kcal/hour) and manufactured, commercially purchased or sold in India, shall ensure default setting of temperature in the room air conditioners at twenty-four degrees Celsius.”
