With technology gradually growing and improving it can be easy to get lost in all the new tech, and when it comes to something as critical as our air conditioner you want to be sure that you are getting the best out there. Which is also why you may be wondering what people are talking about when they say inverter technology (DC).
So if have you ever wondered what is the difference between an inverter and non-inverter AC? Take a look at the top 5 advantages of inverters that make them better than non-inverters.
The biggest difference between an inverter and non-inverter AC is the fact that the motor of the inverter compressor has a variable speed. The speed of the non-inverter compressor is fixed. This means that it operates either at full or minimum speed. A sensor in the inverter adjusts the power according to the temperature in the room, lowering the electrical consumption and saving energy.
Due to the sophisticated operational method of the inverter, its compressor does not work at its full capacity all the time. When the speed is lower, the needed energy is lower too and you pay less money for electricity.
More quite sound
As the compressor motor of the inverter air conditioner does not turn on and off all the time but keeps working at low power, the operation is quieter.
The technology of the inverters not only makes cooling and heating more efficient, but it also makes the AC’s life longer.
Last but not least, the inverter AC is able to cool or heat your room faster than the non-inverter. This is due to the fact that in the beginning of the process, the inverter uses more power than the non-inverter and diminish the power when it gets close to the desired temperature.
Overall the Inverter technology (DC) is the latest evolution of technology concerning the electromotors of the compressors.
An Inverter is used to control the speed of the compressor motor, so as to continuously regulate the temperature. The DC Inverter units have a variable-frequency drive that comprises an adjustable electrical inverter to control the speed of the electromotor, which means the compressor and the cooling/heating output.
The drive converts the incoming AC current to DC and then through a modulation in an electrical inverter produces the current of the desired frequency. A microcontroller can sample each ambient air temperature and adjust accordingly the speed of the compressor.
The inverter air conditioning units have increased efficiency in contraction to traditional air conditioners, extended life of their parts and the sharp fluctuations in the load are eliminated. This makes the inverter AC units quieter, with lower operating cost and with fewer breakdowns. The inverter AC units might be more expensive than the constant speed air conditioners, but this is balanced by lower energy bills. The payback time is approximately two years depending on the usage.
