This window ac from Hitachi might be old fashioned, but the performance of this unit is up to the mark. The features provided in this mid-ranged ac will blow your mind away. Let’s talk about its features, pros, and cons to know more about it.
This Hitachi air conditioner is engineered in a way that it will operate in complete silence. The sound it makes while working is around 35-45 decibels only. You can peacefully sleep at night without any noise.

What Do We like
The compressor of this air conditioning unit is very powerful. This 1.5-ton ac can cool a medium-sized room of 170 sq. ft with ease. It is durable and increases all over product longevity as well.
Copper condenser coil
Copper has always been known for the better heat exchanger than aluminum. It can absorb and transfer more heat efficiently. They are also corrosion-free and lasts longer. A copper coil needs no maintenance whatsoever and easy to replace too.
The ac is smart enough to know what will be the desired temperature for the room. It also comes with a timer so that you can set a particular time and the ac will get switched off automatically.
Auto filter clean
The filters of an air conditioner get dirty after a while. This ac comes with a filter cleaner indicator that will notify you every once in a while when the filter requires cleaning. This way, you will never have to breathe unhealthy air. Cleaning the filter also saves some power consumption too.
Every Hitachi air conditioners go through some high standard tests to match its performance level to the international specifications. Like every other Hitachi ac, this one also passed all the 3 tests and then it was launched in the market for people to use. The standard of the product is kept at a very high level from Hitachi.
This is a new feature added by Hitachi. This Kaimin function will make your sleep even more comfortable by raising the temperature by 1 degree per hour up to 4 hours.
The digit lock features let you lock your ac using the remote control so there is no misuse is taking place when you are not around. Kids sometimes may reach for the remote and misuse the air conditioner, so to prevent that this feature is always ready.
What We Don’t Like
These old fashioned window air conditioners may be good at everything, but the power consumption of these units are remarkably higher than the split ones. These models consume a lot of electricity to run, and it will result in bigger electricity bills for you.
Hitachi has always manufactured top quality products from start to present. This is a little old model but still would perform like any other new models of ac. This comes with a 1-year warranty on the product and a 5-year warranty on the compressor. It is very silent and gives you the comfort you desire. The price range justifies the features that Hitachi has provided into it. This is a product worth buying.
