A standard airconditioner can be compared to a race car. With a race car, you always drive at top speed to get to the finish line, at the fastest possible speed. This results in higher fuel consumption, as well as wear and tear on the vehicle. The same can be said for the standard airconditioning unit : when the required temperature is set, the aircon will start up at maximum capacity and run a maximum capacity until the room reaches the required temperature setting. This uses more electricity, and adds wear and tear on the unit.
With new inverter technology, this can be compared to the car which you drive every day. You decide on the speed that you want to drive to reach your destination, and as soon as you reach your required speed, you drive on cruise control so that you use less fuel. This also decreases the wear and tear on the vehicle and its components. An inverter aircon works in much the same way : when the required temperature is set, the aircon will automatically choose the tempo and capacity at which the unit is required to cool or heat the room. As soon as the required temperature is reached, the unit will automatically “cruise” and continue to supply the much needed air at a lower operating capacity, meaning the lower power consumption and the less wear and tear.
Make an informed decision and let your aircon make smart choices for you.
