Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

With the arrival of a hot summer, most of the residents of apartments in multi-storey buildings open their windows, put on fans, move to the floor at night, cover themselves with a wet sheet. Residents of the upper floors are especially affected by the heat. The experience of Arab and African countries shows that the only salvation for a person from overheating is air conditioning. Today, the installation of an air conditioner has become more affordable for Russian citizens thanks to the expansion of Chinese products. The purchase becomes even more attractive, since most of the systems are multifunctional, allowing you to heat the room in cold weather. To choose an effective and durable air conditioner from China, you should take into account some of the recommendations of our experts.

Recommendations for choosing an air conditioner made in China

Types of household air conditioners. First, potential buyers should decide on the type of air conditioner. All models can be divided into 2 groups.

  1. Monoblock constructions represent a mini-refrigeration unit with a fan. Until recently, window models dominated, which were mounted directly into a window or transom. Sometimes it was necessary to cut a niche in the wall to remove hot air from the appliance. Today, such devices are rarely found; they are suitable only for residents of summer cottages. Another representative of the monoblock design is a mobile air conditioner. It can be moved around the house or apartment, but you only need to find a hole to bring the corrugated sleeve out. Sometimes the windows are slightly opened for this, but then the cooling efficiency becomes lower.
  2. Split systems have become currently the most popular type of household air conditioners. Their disadvantages are the high price and fixed installation. If Chinese manufacturers help to cope with the first negative factor, then you will have to get used to stationary placement. The split system consists of indoor and outdoor units. Due to the placement of noisy modules outside, it is possible to achieve silent operation of the air conditioner in the room.

Power and energy efficiency. All household climate control units are powered by electricity. On the one hand, users want to buy a powerful split system that can cool several rooms. But the pursuit of performance can turn into hefty electricity bills. The best option for a room up to 20 sq. m will buy an air conditioner with a capacity of 2000-3000 W, which corresponds to energy efficiency class A.

Air heating function. Residents of apartments in the cold season may experience discomfort due to the low air temperature in the premises. Therefore, using a split system as a heater is a practical solution. Most Chinese air conditioners work on the principle of a heat pump, taking heat from the outside and supplying it to the room. When buying, it is important to pay attention to the minimum outdoor air temperature at which the unit is capable of generating heat. Most often, the lower limit is at around -15 ° C.

Noise level. One of the most important criteria when choosing an air conditioner is the noise level of the device. The SanPiN norms set the upper threshold at 34 dB. It should be noted that modern Chinese climate systems emit noise no higher than 30 dB, which is practically inaudible to the human ear. Moreover, air conditioners are equipped with special night modes with even quieter operation.

Control. Most air conditioners are controlled by a remote control. For many users, this will be enough. But the most advanced should look for split systems with a Wi-Fi module, thanks to which you can control the air conditioner via the Internet.

Air cleaning. People who are sensitive to air quality should choose a split system taking into account the air filtration system. In addition to conventional fine filters that retain dust, manufacturers equip their installations with ionizers and oxygen generators, dehumidifiers and humidifiers, a deodorization option, and an external air mixing system.

We have selected the 12 best Chinese air conditioners for review. All of them are widely represented in the Russian trade network. When allocating seats, the opinion of the expert community and feedback from domestic consumers were taken into account.
