Voltas 1.2 Ton 3 Star Split AC Verdict
Though this AC has many good features, this AC uses some low-quality components also for cooling. As they set the price too low, they used aluminium condenser coil and R22 type gas as the refrigerant. But the aluminium condenser coil has a higher cost for maintenance and also the efficiency of the cooling is lower than copper. They also reduced the warranty period for the compressor. So we can say that this AC may be great with these features but this can make a problem after long runtime.
