Why Inverter air conditioners?

Inverter air conditioners are more powerful, offer great savings (upto 64%*) and are better at maintaining temperature compared to non-inverter air conditioners

  • Let's take an example of 1.5 Ton inverter air conditioner versus non-inverter air conditioner #
  • A 1.5 Ton inverter air conditioner works initially at 1.7 Ton and as the desired temperature is achieved it reduces its capacity to 1.5, 1 or .3 Ton based on room conditions.
  • A 1.5 Ton non-inverter airconditioner on the other hand works at 1.5 Ton all the times.

*Estimated energy savings of 1.5 Ton Daikin inverter air conditioner against 1.5 Ton Daikin 2 Star split air conditioner. CSPF is calculated as per Japanese standard JIS9612C

How inverter air conditioners work?

Inverter, a device in the air conditioner, controls frequency of power supplied to compressor motor.

Compressor motor controls the rotational speed of the compressor and the compressor ensures refrigerant flow is commensurate with the cooling requirement of the room.

In contrast non-inverter air conditioners have fixed compressor that cannot increase or decrease their speed and refrigerant flow rate as per cooling requirement of the room and work at one given capacity only.

Thus variable speed of the compressor ensures not only better temperature control but they also reduces power consumption by upto 71%*

  • Inverter air conditioners are powerful

    Inverter air conditioners operate at maximum capacity on starting. Consequently refrigerant flow rate is increased and the desired temperature is reached quickly.

    In contrast non-inverter air conditioners have only one, fixed capacity. Hence they cannot increase the refrigerant flow rate and the desired temperature takes more time compared to inverter air conditioners to be reached.

Inverter air conditioners have less power consumption

In Inverter air conditioners on achieving the desired temperature the compressor speed slows and the refrigerant rate drops, hence inverter air conditioner works at lower capacity. As a result lower average power is consumed offering savings upto 71%*

In Contrast the compressor in non-inverter air conditioners stops on reaching the desired stops and when the temperature rises again the compressor & refrigerant flow restart. This stop/start cycle continues whenever non-inverter airconditioner is in use resulting in higher power consumption.

 

Inverter air conditioners are more comfortable

The difference in the set temperature and the indoor temperature is negligible with inverter air conditioners. In contrast there is a constant variation of in set temperature and indoor temperature of non-inverter air conditioners.

Thus inverter air conditioners are more comfortable compared to non-inverter air conditioners

 
  • Myths associated with Inverter ACs

    Myth A:

    Inverter air conditioners run on power back-up inverters when there is a power outage:

    Inverter is the name of a device for converting frequency of power supply. This device is located inside the air conditioner and is not related to power back-up inverters in any manner. It only helps in regulating the speed of the compressor
