4 Reasons to Choose an Inverter Air Conditioner

An inverter in an air conditioner is used to control the speed of the compressor motor to drive variable refrigerant flow in an air conditioning system to regulate the conditioned-space temperature. By contrast, traditional air conditioners regulate temperature by using a compressor that is periodically either working at maximum capacity or switched off entirely. Inverter-equipped air conditioners have a variable-frequency drive that incorporates an adjustable electrical inverter to control the speed of the motor and thus the compressor and cooling output.

  1. Save Electricity
  2. Regular ACs consume more power for two reasons:

    1. Fixed Speed Compressor - Regular ACs can only run at their full capacity. Even when the cooling requirement is less, the compressor runs at full capacity, thereby it consumes more power.
    2. Compressor Starts and Stops Continuously - A power surge occurs every time the compressor starts, as it needs a higher start-up power. These peaks of power use result in an overall higher power consumption for regular ACs

    Inverter Technology Solves both the above issues. Overall, Inverter ACs are known to achieve up to 60% reduction in power consumption compared to regular ACs.

  3. Longer Life Span
  4. Inverter Compressors retain their lubricant more effectively as explained above. Regular compressors on the other hand gradually lose the lubricant, resulting in more wear and tear. Therefore, the inverter compressors have a longer life span.

  5. Stay Comfortable
  6. As explained in the first point, the Inverter Compressor maintains a fixed temperature level. There is no cut-off of the compressor. Therefore, with an Inverter AC, you will not experience cycles of Chill and Warmth. Your room will stay at a comfortable cool level throughout.

  7. Environmentally Friendly
  8. Finally, Inverter ACs use the most Eco friendly coolants. Plus they save Electricity. Therefore, by using an Inverter AC, you demonstrate your commitment to a more sustainable world.
