Air Conditioners in India will soon have to set 24°C symbol as default temperature: Report

One of the best and most relieving feelings on a summer day is to walk into an air-conditioned room after returning from the hustle and bustle of the city. Hence, if you don’t have one already, chances are you’ve at least planned to buy one before summer hits. Here is a new rule you should know before heading in purchase one. Air Conditioners sold starting January 2020 will have to ensure that their default temperature is set to 24-degrees Celsius, The Hindu Business Line reports.

The Indian government decided on Monday that the 24-degree condition will now be mandatory for all brands and models. The government had consulted the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) on the rule ahead of the final decision. Further, the rule applies to all ACs under the BEE-star labeling program.
