Firstly let me just brief you with the basic difference between the Split AC and Window AC. Well Split AC is an air conditioner which is basically having two different units out of which one is kept inside while another unit is kept outside. While talking about the Window AC, then an air conditioner is just having a single unit which is placed inside the room. So that’s the single line difference between Window AC vs Split AC.
But on the basis of this difference you cannot decide which one should you pick among these two types of AC. So, let us now understand what makes these two air conditioners different from each other. Also which one is better for you and why should you go for buying it.

Air conditioner is a device which controls the temperature of area by consuming less power. As both the air conditioners are equally efficient when it comes to cooling a room with less consumption of power. As what really matters is the EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) of the air conditioner. Since both Window AC and Split AC Have high ratio of EER in them. Hence whether you go for buying a Window AC or Split AC there will be no difference in power consumption of the AC.
Well Window AC is basically an air conditioner which is single unit AC. Well window AC’s are generally made to fit inside the room. Also window AC consists of all the necessary components like compressor, condenser, expansion coil, evaporator and cooling coil inside the single unit. Also they do not occupy ample amount of space hence it makes them a better choice for small rooms.
Split AC basically come in two different units one for internal use and another for external use. Well the indoor unit is installed inside the room which works at throwing the cold air inside the room. In addition to this, the outdoor unit of the split air conditioner consists of a compressor which is installed outside and it is connected to an internal unit. The outside unit of the air conditioner works at throwing the warm air outside the room.
So now let us understand the difference between Window AC vs Split AC. Well both Split AC and Window AC works on a single principal but what varies is the capacity of the air conditioner. That is the reason why Window AC and Split AC are used at different places. Also Split Air Conditioners come with comparatively more number of models in BEE 5 ratings then Window AC. Hence if you are looking for an air conditioner which is more efficient then you should go for Split AC then Window AC.
