Inverter air conditioning is more expensive than non inverter air conditioning but with the current spiralling energy costs, is it worth the extra expense.
In summary an inverter air conditioner can reduce your energy bill. It will be worth paying more for inverter air conditioning if you use your air conditioning:
Non inverter or fixed speed air conditioning delivers a fixed amount of power via a fixed speed. This means the compressor has to stop and start to maintain the desired room temperature.
An Inverter air conditioning system- varies the speed of the compressors, delivering precise cooling or heating power as required.
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 cooling or heating capacity needs to be increased, the compressor will operate at a high speed and will increase the amount of refrigerant flow.
Conversely, during moderate outside temperatures for example, when the cooling and heating capacity needs to be decreased, the compressor will operate at a low speed and will decrease the amount of refrigerant flow.When the inverter air conditioning is switched on, the compressor operates at a high speed in order to cool or heat the room quickly. As the room temperature approaches the set temperature, 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. EcoAir inverter air conditioning use between 30-50% less electricity to operate.
