Carrier cyclojet Air conditioner review

Recently carrier has launched a split AC with redesigned outdoor unit. This series is called Ester+ with cyclojet technology. It has cylindrical shape outdoor unit that intakes air from cylindrical surface and discharges hot air from fan on top.

Outdoor unit takes quite lesser space compared to conventional outdoor AC units. But this design adds more surface area for air intake and more area for condenser inside.

Outdoor unit body is mainly built of fiber which is stronger and durable in long run. Carrier normally provides all copper condenser and cyclojet is no exception, it has 100 % copper condenser.

I have got 1.5 ton 5 star Ester+ cyclojet model from flipkart at about 37000 Rs. This series is available in 1, 1.5 and 2 ton capacity with 3 and 5 star BEE ratings.

Even the indoor unit is slightly smaller than my another carrier inverter AC.

I have installed it in 14×15 ft drawing room which has passage in my 11×12 ft dining room. Even without partitioning between two rooms I feel that the cooling is effective.
