Inverter Air Conditioning
Inverter air conditioning is a little more expensive to invest in than the non-inverter air conditioning systems but with the constantly increasing prices of energy, an inverter system may just be worth the extra investment. It is ideal for the environmentally aware consumer and for those that appreciate high performance with economical running costs.
The main benefits in a nutshell are:
- Cost savings of at least 30% – 50% as less power is consumed.
- Quickly reaches operating temperature.
- Reduction of 30% on start up time.
- Quiet Operation
- Consistent comfort levels with no temperature fluctuations.
- No voltage peaks from compressor
Clearly, inverter air conditioning can reduce energy bills especially if it is in use all year round used for heating as well as cooling.
The difference between inverter and non-inverter air conditioning units is essentially that a non-inverter or fixed speed air conditioner delivers a fixed amount of power with a fixed speed. Consequently, this means the compressor has to stop and start to balance and maintain the correct air temperature using extra energy in the process.
Inverter air conditioning systems vary the speed of the compressors, delivering precise cooling, or heating power as required. The amount of cooling or heating required by an air conditioning unit varies depends on the outdoor temperature and the amount of heat in the room. When the cooling or heating capacity needs to be increased, the compressor will operate at a high speed and will increase the amount of refrigerant flow. Conversely, during moderate outside temperatures for example, when the cooling and heating capacity needs to be decreased, the compressor will operate at a low speed and will decrease the amount of refrigerant flow.
When the inverter air conditioning is switched on, the compressor operates at a high speed in order to cool or heat the room quickly. As the room temperature approaches the set temperature, the compressor slows down, maintaining a constant temperature and saving energy. Any sudden fluctuation in the room temperature will be sensed and instantly adjusted to bring the room temperature back to the set temperature.
This type of air conditioning system delivers on all levels and is worth considering if you are energy conscious and are looking for a long term saving on energy costs combined with high performance.
