1. Types Of Air Conditioners

There are different varieties of air conditioners, including window, portable, split, and ducted units. Such options cater to a variety of demands.

2. Understanding Your Needs

When selecting an air conditioner, consider the room size, energy efficiency ratings, installation requirements, budget, and desired features to guarantee optimal cooling performance that serves your needs.


Consider your location's climate and typical air conditioning needs—whether you need only cooling or both cooling and heating—to choose a model that efficiently handles temperature management needs and maximises comfort year-round.


Choose an air conditioner that matches your room's size and layout, ensuring optimum cooling or heating coverage. Consider area square meterage, ceiling height, insulation, and room arrangement to achieve peak performance and comfort.


Before you choose an air conditioner, think about your lifestyle and interests. Consider your noise level sensitivity, health and allergy concerns, and preferences for convenience and smart features to ensure that you make the best choice for your unique requirements.

3. Energy Efficiency

Picking energy-efficient air conditioners saves money on electricity bills and reduces long-term expenses, offering both financial savings and environmental benefits.

Air conditioners' energy efficiency refers to their ability to cool or heat rooms while using the least amount of electricity possible. When making a purchasing decision, it's important to compare products, buyers often prioritise models with higher star energy ratings to save on long-term energy bills and reduce carbon footprint.

Split system air conditioners have several features that make them cost-efficient.

Lower operating costs

Split system air conditioners generally have lower operating costs due to their efficient design, which allows for accurate temperature control while lowering energy usage and minimising wasted cooling.

Smart features

Smart features in split system air conditioners, such as programmable timers and sensors, optimise energy usage through adjusting cooling settings and temperature, resulting in cost savings by decreasing unnecessary power consumption. Westinghouse’s Eco-Mode provides optimal comfort while consuming less energy with its highly efficient cooking system.

4. Features To Consider

Split system air conditioners offer features that save energy, provide personalised comfort, and increase convenience regardless of household size, lifestyle or preference.

5. Care & Maintenance

Air conditioners require regular care and maintenance to guarantee optimal performance and longevity while preventing problems like reduced cooling capacity, decreased efficiency, and potential malfunctions.


Air conditioner filters should be cleaned every 1-3 months, depending on usage and indoor air quality, to ensure proper airflow and efficiency, minimise dust buildup, and improve indoor air quality.


Electrical connections should be checked annually by a licenced electrician to ensure they are tight, secure, and free of corrosion, thereby preventing electrical problems and potential risks, and guaranteeing the system's safe and efficient operation. They should also inspect and clean evaporator coils on an annual basis to eliminate dirt and debris buildup, ensure efficient heat exchange, prevent airflow constraints, and maintain the air conditioning system's best cooling performance.

6. Warranty & Customer Support

It's important to understand the warranty conditions, coverage periods, and exclusions to help you anticipate costs, so that you have peace of mind and long-term satisfaction.


With a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty, Westinghouse air conditioners are built with quality materials and the latest technology to provide long-lasting, reliable performance. With a robust design and rigorous testing, you can trust Westinghouse to keep you comfortable for years to come.
