During peak summers it is a requirement for instant cooling, Kenstar AC’s come with Turbo mode cooling for quicker cooling. The Super Alloy condenser is not only more efficient but more durable than standard alloy condenser. The chemical composition used to obtain the alloy allows faster heat exchanges and hence a faster cooling. Also, the corrosion resistance is increased to about 60%. Dehumidification mode sets the room at a comfortable humidity level without reducing the room temperature. Backlit keys on the remote make operations very easy, even at night when room lights are off. Silver ion filter net is a new high effect antiseptic product, which has the traits of antiseptic, free of pollution and environmental by putting the silver on the surface of the carrier. Adopting silver ion antiseptic filter can block the transmission of disease and be kind to the health of the people. Anti-Bacteria filter has a new purifying material with an excellent sterilizing and dust Collecting ability, when air passes through the filter, dust and bacteria are removed and clean is circulated into the houses.
From the manufacturer
Night glow buttons on remote controller help buttons glow in the dark which make it easy to see them in the dark.
Dehumidification (Dry Mode)
It is usually used in the rainy days or damp area. By operating dehumidification mode, the room can achieve comfortable humidity level for the user without reducing room temperature.
Turbo Cool Mode
Turbo cool mode is used to reduce the temperature of your room at the highest possible rate by operating at highest fan speed.
Auto Air Swing (Vertical)
Auto Air Swing ensures uniform cooling by swing the louvers up and down.
In Sleep Mode, the room temperature increases automatically by 1°C every hour for the first 2 hours. This has 2 advantages:
1. As a person goes into deep sleep, his metabolism also slows down, thereby reducing discomfort due to high temp. The increase in set temperature compensates for reduced metabolism of the person, leading to comfortable sleep.
2. As set temperature is increased, the working load of AC is reduced, leading to power savings.
In the event of a power failure, the special chip memorizes the settings like set temp, fan speed etc. and when power is restored, the unit will restart with the same settings.
This function can be set for 12 hours with intervals with which the unit can be shut OFF and restarted at the predetermined time as required.
AC gets ON/OFF automatically at the set time for convenience.
After long periods of no usage, if the AC is switched on, it generally emits foul odours due to growth of mould & bacteria on the evaporator.
The occurrence of these odours can be highly reduced by the “Auto-Clean” function. In this function, the blower motor keeps running for 10 minutes even after the unit is switched OFF. This removes the condensed water on the Evaporator, and avoids formation of mould/bacteria.
As an added advantage, a clean evaporator with any blockage can function more efficiently, increasing the efficiency of the overall AC unit.
Variable Speed Setting
Variable speed of the fan motor allows you to choose a comfortable cool air flow as per convenience.
Louver Step Adjust:
Louvers are set to distribute air in a fixed angle or swing between any desired angles suitable for customer convenience.
Blue Fin Evaporator
Hydrophilic Blue Fin evaporator in the indoor unit helps in setting the indoor unit free from water contaminants, thereby enhancing the efficiency of the heat exchanger.
The Anti-Bacterial Filter is a specially designed filter that helps reduce the spread of infections and diseases through air. It removes more than 95% of E.Coli and Staphylococcus Aureus that cause boils, infections and diarrhoeal diseases. It also collects dust, limits the metabolism and growth of bacteria and sterilises the air.

Previously I saw other brand AC, but was Not convinced with its performance. One of my relative recently purchased this AC from Amazon and after checking it I am writing this review HIGHLIGHTING the Performance of Product & facts related to this particular product ONLY.
@ Being a Mechanical Engineer I am stating few stats first for better understanding.
@ Aluminium Coil is present in indoor unit as well as outdoor unit. But Main Coil which gives Cooling is Indoor unit.
# Indoor unit has Warranty of just 1 Year. This means after that maintenance is on your pocket.
# Main problem is when any leakage occurs, its VERY Difficult & Expensive to repair Aluminium coil compared to Copper.
# Aluminium has lower conductivity so more heat losses and cooling capacity decreases and less life compared to Copper based
@ Price of THIS model is equal to some 3 Star Rated AC.
# Reason is, this AC has ALUMINIUM COIL.
@ You will definitely SAVE more initially,Save on energy consumption,Less Pollution in environment,BUT Maintenance would be NIGHTMARE.
1) Product is 5 star rated which is very Environmental efficient as well as Budget friendly.
# ONLY for Initial investment.
2) AC is damn silent and Pleasant. You wont even notice its being even ON.
3) Turbo Mode is better than other AC that I saw.
4) Refrigerant used is R-22, which is HCFC.
5) Cools a Area of about 100sq.ft. sufficiently.
6) Dehumidification is quite effective and useful feature to have.
7) Remote has Backlit and display is sufficient enough.
8) Auto Clean, which typically states the filter change alert and other such minor things.
9) Rest all other features are fine, though you won't even bother to check them after some period.
1) Whenever the AC breaks down, you will Definitely Loose More amount than you saved initially while purchasing it.
2) Considering its rating and usage, max. you can save is 2000 rupees per year, but then a single breakdown may cost you more than that.
3) Silver ion filter is useful only in low pollution area, if you are Living in city like Delhi or Mumbai, then it won't make huge difference.
4) Like already mentioned Cooling takes time.
5) Flow of air is not very effective.
Now the main question, whether its worth buying ?
For the Price given of 24000 rupees, its value for money. This is above average product. Not much cons, but presence of aluminium coils drops its utility value. I personally have 4 AC's in my house, and every one has Copper Coil. Also I am now searching for Copper coil AC Only.
If you are average user, and going to use it only 3-4 hours a day, then only think about it. Else you are definitely going to regret your decision sooner after warranty expires.
Finally I would Suggest to Invest few thousand more and Go for Copper Coil based AC, it will give you better cooling & Result.
Thank You for reading this review.
Fast forward to March 2018, the entire time the AC was not used since installation maybe a couple of times due to winters. In March, the AC stopped operating altogether. I called the service centre and they tried a couple of times, did some basic level stuff and it worked. I was happy with the service. Unfortunately I had to leave India for a bit and reuted back in April. This is the firtst time the AC was going to be really really used. So what happens? It gave up after 5 days. The LED panel keeps blinking forever and AC doesn't switch on.
I call the service centre and they say the PCB is defective!!! In a product that was maybe used 10-15 times since installation. What are my options? Sleep in the hot weather until the company deems it worthy enough to replace the PCB! Amazing!! The technician was a kind person, at least and has promised me swift action on his part. However to keep my expectations real, he has said it can take up to a MONTH to get new parts!! A MONTH TO GET NEW PARTS RIGHT IN THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER! Brilliant, I give up. Its a waste of money and I will probably end up buying a Window AC if nothing happens within a week. Definitely won't be a Kenstar AC though. What a waste of money! Rs 24000 for an AC that ran about 15 times. Look at the pictures of clean filter if you don't believe me.
The only disappointment so far is with the installation. The company doesn't provide free installation. So had to shell out an extra 6k for installation and stabilizer (optional though).
