What is an Inverter Air Conditioner?

An inverter air conditioner controls the power, speed, and frequency of the motor to the HVAC system, meaning it can shift through multiple speed levels. Alternatively, a non-inverter has just one speed.

Ultimately, inverter air conditioners are more energy efficient. This is because they use less power to maintain the desired temperature as they can slow the motor down as necessary.

Non-inverter air conditioners turn on and off frequently. This causes more noise as they are either off, or they are fully on. This also makes them less energy efficient, and is tougher on the machine’s moving parts. Inverter air conditioners ensure superior comfort and energy efficiency, and are more cost effective in the long run.

The components that make up an inverter AC are expensive, and their repair and maintenance is a costly service. Non-inverter air conditioners may cost less in the short term, but inverter air conditioners operate in a way that provides more value in the long run.

Don’t forget about room insulation. If there is not adequate air circulation or if the machine is not properly maintained, inverter air conditioners can increase overall power consumption, and as such, your electricity bill can go up.

Inverter air conditioners can also provide special benefits including:

  • Sense activity and adjust the output of the unit accordingly
  • Custom integrations to allow you to control the unit
  • Improve air quality (on specific models)
  • Monitor energy consumption and costs from an app
