You Don’t Need to Spend Too Much to Get a Good Inverter Aircon Unit

Quality and Competitively Priced AC Units

If you’re in the market for a quality Inverter Airconditioner unit, you don’t have to go overboard and spend Php50,000 for a window type inverter model. If you want to be more practical you might want to check out the units offered by Gree.

Gree actually makes a third of all AC units, making them the #1 manufacturer in the world. They’re based in China and they work with most of the more popular brands that you see today (kinda like how Sony makes camera lenses for other brands). They’ve actually been in the Philippines for a while but they haven’t been making noise as much.

We stumbled upon them when we were on the lookout for a new AC unit for our living room. After a lot of research we decided to pull the trigger and we installed it a few weeks ago. We have zero complaints so far. It’s quiet, cool, and doesn’t blow up our electric bill. With the same usage we’ve seen a drop of Php1,000-Php1,500 on our monthly electric bill.

For your reference, here are the prices of their Window Type Inverter Units:

We all need one, hehe.

  1. it’s a few thousand pesos less than the other leading brands. inverters can really save you electricity charges but this savings can only be felt if you use your AC for at least 12hrs a day. Thats a fact that AC reps can tell you about inverter ACs. but these reps are silent on 3 things.
    1. They will not tell you repair coverages and costs even under warranty period. Moreso, it will be much higher after that.
    2. They will never tell you that non-inverters last much longer than inverters. Twice longer at the least. And
    3. inverter circuits of AC are prone to damages since discrete electronic devices naturaly wear out after sometime. These circuit boards don’t come cheap.

    sorry about that, sir carlo. but I’m not a big fan of inverters…
