Top 10 Best Air Conditioners in Malaysia 2022 (Energy-Saving)

Best Air Conditioner Malaysia
"It's been hot lately, right?"

Looking for a good Air Conditioner for your home but afraid of the high electricity bills? Don’t worry, in this article we will explain how to stay cool in the hot weather with our pick for the Best Air Conditioners in Malaysia that are also energy efficient!

Inverter Vs Non-Inverter

When buying an Air Conditioner, the term you will often hear is “Inverter Air Cond” & “Non-Inverter Air Cond”. In short, inverter air cons can adjust its energy consumption depending on the temperature of the room whereas non inverter cannot. 

Here we will explain the differences in terms of cost, energy efficiency & overall suitability to your home.

Cost

Inverter air conditioners are more energy efficient but come at a higher purchasing cost than non-inverter Air Conditioners. However, an inverter air conditioner is a better choice for long term use, especially if you use it for long hours (more than 4 hours a day).

If the cost of either type is too much for you, our list of Best Air Coolers might be something you’d want to check out.

Energy Efficiency

Inverter Air Conditioners are equipped with a compressor with the ability to adjust its motor speed to the temperature of the room so that as the room cools, the air conditioner will lower down its energy consumption by lowering down the speed of the compressor motor. In the end, your electricity bill will be much more manageable. Recommended at least 3 Star – 5 Star Energy Rating.

Suitability

Inverter Air Conditioners work best in a closed space like a bedroom. When placed in an open space, like a big living room + kitchen, inverter air conditioners will not be able to stabilize. Still, you can ensure the big room is enclosed and that you get the appropriate horsepower.

Horsepower Guide

Another term you will hear is Horsepower. Here is a brief guide to give you an idea, but ask the sellers if you are not too sure.

Horsepower is the air cons’ cooling capacity and often comes in 1.0 HP to 3.0 HP.

  • Room Size 4 x 4 m = 1.0 HP or 1.5 HP
  • Room Size 4.5 x 5 m = 1.5 HP or 2.0 HP
  • Room Size 5.5 x 5.5 m = 2.0 HP or 2.5 HP
  • Room Size 6.5 x 6.5 m = 2.5 HP or 3.0 HP

F.A.Q

Inverter Air Conditioners are more energy efficient than non-inverter due to their capability to regulate their energy consumption depending on the temperature of the room. But non-inverter come at a cheaper initial price tag.
The price range for a good Air Conditioner in Malaysia depends on the horsepower and whether it is inverter or non inverter type. Generally they come at around RM800 to RM3000 price tags. Installation cost usually starts at RM150 to RM200.
Both Air Conditioners and Air Coolers are great options for cooling down your room. However, Air Coolers require more maintenance but are much more affordable. Air Conditioners require less maintenance & can provide consistent cooling but obviously are more expensive.
