Inverter Technology For Cooling
There are 2 types of air conditioning units, conventional units which operate the compressor at one constant speed switching on and off depending on the temperature setting. This is referred to as stop-start principle.
Inverter technology which most of the leading brands now use in their units allows the rotating speed of the compressor to move up or down depending on the required output of the unit and therefore never switches off completely. This can save up to 30-50% of your energy consumption by installing a unit with an inverter. These units also reach the desired temperature quicker and maintain it with minimal fluctuations.
Another key aspect of any inverter is its ability to operate when the temperature soars as high as 46 C cooling or fall as low minus 15 C heating. A quick check of the manufacturer’s specs will tell you the max and min operating temperature ranges.
