Currently on the market we have the old traditional R22 Air – Conditioners which is being phased out over next 5 years, therefor I would recommend you install the new R410a Inverter type Air-Conditioners which is more energy efficient.
Benefits of Inverter Air Conditioning
Inverter air conditioning is more expensive than non-inverter air conditioning but with the current spiralling energy costs, is it worth the extra Rs?
Let's see what are the benefits of an inverter air conditioning compared with a non-inverter air conditioning:-
• 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
• No voltage peaks from compressor
• All inverter air conditioning units are heat pumps which in itself is one of the most energy efficient form of heating
Is it worth paying more for an inverter air conditioning?
So, in summary an inverter air conditioning can reduce your energy bill. It will be worth paying more for an inverter air conditioning if you use your air conditioning for:-
• all year round
• used for heating
What is the difference between inverter and non-inverter air conditioning units?
Non inverter or Fixed speed air conditioning deliver a fixed amount of power via a fixed speed. 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 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. The inverter air-conditioner uses between 30-50% less electricity to operate.
