Used AC with Inverter/Converter Imported from Japan

Finally I decided to give these used AC (Imported from Japan) a try. They come with locally made Inverter/Converter and are available in 2 configurations 0.75 & 1.0 ton.

0.75 ton with Inverter/Converter costs around 13k to 15k
1.0 ton with Inverter/Converter costs around 16k to 18k

- depending on the condition of the unit and configurations.

The importer of these units claimed that:

1. These units uses 2 Ampere current and operates on 100 volts (via the Inverter/Converter).
2. They uses 1/4th of the electricity in comparison to the electricity used by normal 1 ton split AC.
3. They would add up to 2k to your monthly electricity bill
4. These units can run on 2K Gas Generators as well

Do note that these units can only be installed vertically, so they need more space vertically and less horizontally.

These units comes with 1 year compressor warranty and 6 months inverter/converter warranty. Because these units are made in Japan, their parts are of quality and are expected to lasts longer. As per Importer, in case of any problem, normal AC electricians can fix these issues. Importer also have technicians available to fix any such problems.
