Summer season is here and a lot of people are looking for a nice air conditioner for their home or office. In this article, we take a look at our list of top 10 best AC under 30000 available in India as of 2018. Top split and window air conditioners from brands like LG, Voltas, Hitachi, Carrier have been listed.

At a price of under Rs. 30000, you can expect to get a window air conditioner of 1.5-ton capacity and split AC of 1 to 1.2-ton capacity. We have added some 1.5 ton split ACs as well on the list.

We have added both aluminium condenser and copper condenser ACs in our list. Copper ones cost more than aluminium condensers and offer better cooling. If you are tight on budget then go for aluminium condenser air conditioners. The star rating is 3 stars or 5 stars. 5 star rated air conditioners are more power efficient but they cost more. If you are going to use your AC at night only, then getting a 3 star rated air conditioner is fine because recovering the initial extra money paid for a 5 star will take 3-6 years which is not worth it.

The important thing you should consider before buying a window or split ac is the size of the room. If the room size is around 100 sq. ft. then go for an AC of around 1-ton capacity. If your room area is around 150 sq. feet then go for an air conditioner of capacity around 1.5 ton.

Once you choose an AC for you from the list below, you can also take a look at best voltage stabilizers available.

Now let's take a look at the review, specs, pros cons of best AC under 30000 in India.
