In simple terms, an inverter adjusts the compressor speed to maintain the desired temperature, ensuring energy efficiency and consistent cooling. This means no more abrupt starts and stops, providing a smoother and more economical operation for your air conditioning system. Imagine it like a runner maintaining a steady jog without the interruptions and energy wasting of frequent stops and starts.
