Inverter Air Conditioners
When we meet with our customers initially for their complimentary design consultation, we get asked a lot about inverter air conditioning systems. Customers want to know what they are, what they do, how the technology works and why are they different from non-inverter air conditioners.
Due to the high energy consumption of air conditioners, manufacturers have introduced inverter technology across their air conditioning models, as they use approximately 30% less power than non-inverter models.
How do inverters work?
The inverter controls the speed of the motor in an air conditioner to continuously regulate the temperature. The compressor doesn’t switch on and off continuously, but speeds up or down instead as its needed. As it doesn’t need to stop and start several times a day, this reduces stress, and wear and tear on the compressor, which results in less electricity used.
This technology is great for different sized spaces, as the unit adjusts to suit the conditions they are working in. If the area is smaller, then the air conditioner can ramp its capacity down to better match the space.
Comparing inverter air conditioners with traditional systems
Inverter air conditioner units have increased efficiency, extended life of their parts and are quieter, with lower operating costs and less break downs.
Buying a highly efficient inverter system will likely cost you more up front, however it should save you money in the long run with lower energy bills over time.
Are inverter air conditioners quieter than traditional units?
Inverter air conditioners are quieter because instead of working harder (and louder) to automatically turn off and on every time they reach the temperature limit, they consistently adjust and maintain temperature.
What’s the difference between standard vs premium inverters?
The advantage that a premium inverter has over a standard model is the ability to ramp past their 100% rated capacity to get the room to required temperature quieter and with the ability to work a little harder in extreme weather conditions as required.
Buying the right air conditioning system for your needs
Inverter models are generally more efficient, cost less to run, maintain constant room temperatures, reach desired temperatures faster and operate more quietly.
We understand that energy efficiency and comfort are very important factors when deciding what model to purchase, and the Stinson Air & Solar team will meet with you to discuss your specific requirements.
We will only recommend the best solutions for you and your property- there’s no point purchasing a system that is too large or too small for your requirements. Contact us today for your complimentary consultation.
