Inverter Air Conditioning, Is This The Way Forward?

To get an idea of how good new inverter air conditioning units are, it may help to understand how more traditional non-inverter air conditioning systems work. With the coil cooling system, the unit’s compressor compresses the refrigeration gas into a liquid, and it is this process which causes the HVAC unit’s coils to cool significantly, which then cool the passing air as well as eliminate moisture.

The unit then works in conjunction with a thermostat, and once the cooled refrigerant warms up to a certain temperature, the compressor will kick in and the cool and compressed and cooled once again. With an inverter system, the compressor is permanently on, but it doesn’t run at full capability, instead adjusting its efficiency based on the surrounding temperature. In using only the required amount of energy to run at a certain temperature, this is a more efficient system to one which cools down the refrigerant to a level below that needed.

With a more regulated and stable refrigerant temperature, energy savings from inverter AC units can range between 30 and 50%.

Inverter air conditioning units have a number of other advantages, including being more eco-friendly owing to reduced energy consumption. These inverter units also tend to be quieter to run as the unit seldom has to run at full capacity. Through added efficiency and a continued instead of a stop start running system, inverter units tend to have a much longer lifespan. Finally, inverter air conditioning units tend to be swifter at reducing the temperature when first switched on.
