Delhi has been in the news repeatedly off late for one reason alone – air pollution. The World Health Organization (WHO) has rated Delhi the sixth worst city in the worst in terms of air pollution. If you’re living in Delhi, chances are you don’t step out of your home without wearing a mask, so you don’t contract any breathing-related illness. This also means that you can’t leave your windows open during the summer to let any cool air inside, because it will bring with itself all that nasty pollution.

If you can’t afford to buy one, you could consider renting it. Here is a list of must-have appliances if you’re living in Delhi:

Air Conditioner (AC)

Summers in Delhi are no picnic due to the high temperatures. The temperature can go as high as 45o Celsius, or even higher in months like May. Living without AC in your home can become extremely difficult during such times. If you don’t want an AC all year long as the winters get too cold, you consider getting an AC on rent in Delhi during the summer. Depending on the model and brand, it can cost around Rs.800 upwards to rent per month. If you rent for a longer duration you could get a discounted price.

Air Cooler

If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to cooling your home, getting a cooler on rent in Delhi during the harsh summers is a good option. Air coolers on rent in Delhi cost around Rs.250 per month, much cheaper than AC. However, their primary and only function will be to cool the room they’re placed in. They are not nearly as powerful, and their capacity is lower but they do the job and are cost efficient.

Washing Machine

Do you really want to dry your clean clothes outside the house when the pollution is bad? Also, if you hang wet clothes inside the house, it will start smelling bad. So, the perfect solution here is to rent a washing machine with a washer and a dryer. Although, the dryer may not completely dry your clothes, you can certainly hang them in the house while damp without the fear of your home smelling “wet”. You can rent a washing machine at a low cost starting Rs.500 per month in Delhi.


No matter where you live, a refrigerator is a must-have in all homes, especially if summer weather is extreme. Whether you drink sodas or juices, you need a cool space to store them, so they remain that way. Even to put ice in your drink, you’ll need a fridge. More importantly, you will need to store your fruits and vegetables in the fridge to increase their shelf life and don’t forget milk that absolutely needs to be stored in a cool place. You can rent a refrigerator for as little as Rs.400 per month in Delhi.

Renting appliances in Delhi is extremely convenient. You can get delivery to your doorstep within 3 working days and a technician will install everything, without you having to move a muscle. You can even place your order online from the comfort of your home.
