There are many different types of HVAC systems available. Before you choose a particular HVAC system for your home, one type to keep in mind and learn more about relates to inverter technology. Inverter technology has many benefits in the modern HVAC industry. Here’s information on inverter technology and how this works with regard to modern HVAC systems:
What is Inverter Technology?
Inverter technology was developed in the 1970s and 1980s and used for mini split air conditioners as well as heat pumps. Today, inverters are being introduced in some standard air conditioners and heat pumps. So, how does inverter technology work? The inverter air conditioning system has a variable speed compressor that manages the motor speed that makes your air conditioning flow. As a result, it takes less energy to get your AC working and keeps the temperatures in your home uniform.
Benefits of Inverter Technology for Indoor Air Comfort
If you choose a standard AC system that has inverter technology, you’ll find quite a few benefits associated with this type of system such as:
- Size of the system: Inverter AC systems are smaller in size than some standard AC units and can fit in a wide array of places in your home.
- Efficiency of the system: An inverter air conditioning system is energy efficient which is good for the environment and for your wallet as you may save money on energy bills with this type of AC unit.
- Longer life attributes: The inverter AC unit operates at a variable speed and the motors and compressors don’t have to work as hard, which may help to prolong the life of the inverter system.
- Optimized comfort: An AC system with inverter technology keeps the temperature in your home balanced for optimized comfort.
Traditional HVAC Systems vs Ductless/VRF Inverter Systems
If you’re comparing the traditional HVAC system with a ductless/VRF inverter system, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. Traditional HVAC systems are more prevalent in number than ductless/VRF inverter systems, so you’ll have more options to choose from if you select a traditional HVAC system. Also, a traditional HVAC system may be less expensive to install and maintain than an inverter AC system. On the other hand, if you choose an inverter AC system, you may have a more cost-efficient operation than the traditional HVAC system. Also, inverter AC systems offer rapid cooling features to get your room to the temperature you want in no time at all.
The inverter AC system has many benefits associated with it. However, it’s important to consider the pros and cons to see if an inverter AC system is right for you. Find out more information on the inverter AC option by reading the Carrier Ductless eBook.
