Inverter type air conditioning is most popular and hot selling technology in 2016. Although inverter air conditioners are more expensive than non-inverter air conditioners but with the current increasing energy costs, it is totally worth it.

Let’s take an example of 1.5 Ton inverter air conditioner versus non-inverter air conditioner.

  • A 1.5 Ton inverter air conditioner works initially at 1.7 Ton and as the desired temperature is achieved it reduces its capacity to 1.5, 1 or .3 Ton based on room conditions.
  • A 1.5 Ton non-inverter air conditioner on the other hand works at 1.5 Ton all the times.

The Inverter technology (DC) is the latest evolution of technology concerning the electro motors of the compressors. An Inverter is used to control the speed of the compressor motor, so as to continuously regulate the temperature.

Let’s see what are the typical benefits of an inverter type AC compared to normal AC:-

  • At least 30% – 50% cheaper to run as it consumes less power
  • Far quicker to achieve desired temperature
  • The start up time is reduced by 30%
  • Much quieter
  • No temperature fluctuations, maximising comfort level
  • Voltage fluctuations resistance, 150V – 250V AC

Is it worth paying more for an inverter air conditioning?

If you use your air conditioner for 8 hours per day (which means you use it as your main air conditioning equipment), you will save the extra cost in just a few months, and surely before 1st year.

What is the difference between inverter and non inverter air conditioning units?

In non inverter or fixed speed air conditioning the compressors runs at same speed, hence it consumes same amount of power. This means the compressor has to stop and start to maintain the desired room temperature.

Inverter air conditioning system, varies the speed of the compressors, delivering precise cooling or heating power as required.

How does Inverter Air Conditioning work?

The amount of cooling or heating required by an air conditioning unit varies depending on the outdoor temperature and the amount of heat in the room.

When the inverter air conditioner is switched on, the compressor operates at a high speed in order to cool or heat the room quickly. As the set room temperature is achieved, 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.

Let’s watch a video to see how inverter air conditioning is better than non-inverter air conditioning.
