Well most air conditioners stores suggest stabilizers. You can not connect a ups to AC, imo
you may go for vguard, powerline etc @ 2k
if very low voltage, then ask a stabilizer which has double booster(it is available in powerline) @4k

Does UPS refer to your Home UPS? If yes you can hook up the AC if it can take it.
As for the stabilizer, i strongly recommend it, running an AC without a stabilizer/surge protector can be dangerous.

why stabilizer is dangerous? will it burn AC's circuit or anything?

Hitachi/Logicool ACs dont need any kind of power conditioners... I have a split Logicool 2TR and it runs fine without any kind of UPS/Stabilizers.

and its not recommended to run anything [like ACs] that draw high power off a stabilizer/UPS.

btw.. you have posted in the wrong place. :|

it's ok to run if you have good power in your area without fluctuations.
but if there is bad power then you HAVE to have a stabilizer.
some companies market'stabilizer free operation' but it's not true...

and there are stabilizers SPECIFICALLY designed for ac's depending on their cooling capacity(1.5ton, 2ton), like vguard,powerline, etc...

one day all houses in my street got high voltage, something happened on the pole and instead of 230v, we got 460v, then my stabilizers(AC and fridge and TV) sacrificed itself and protected the equipment...
whereas the neighbors electronic items got fried.. especially the TV as they can't live without it!!!
