Inverter aircon becomes popular in Singapore during the mid-2000s. Nowadays, most if not all the aircons, are inverter aircon. What is inverter aircon? What is so good about it and its technology?
Non-inverter Single Speed Aircon
In a non-inverter aircon, the compressor-condenser unit function in a very simple way. When the room temperature falls to or below what was set in the thermostat, the compressor-condenser unit is switched off. When room gets heated up and the temperature rises above (or sometimes way above) the thermostat temperature setting, the compressor-condenser unit re-starts again to cool the room. The result of this start and stop is similar to a car accelerating and stopping frequently and is therefore not energy or fuel efficient. At one time, the aircon is generating cold air and at another time, it is just on fan mode. You work the aircon very hard and then switch it off. This actually strain the aircon system.
Inverter Variable Speed Aircon
On the other hand, the compressor-condenser of an inverter aircon is variable. The room temperature is constantly monitored and feedback to the compressor-condenser unit. Instead of starting and stopping all the time, the compressor-condenser unit is at high, low, medium or cruising power. This makes the inverter aircon more energy efficient compared to a non-inverter aircon as it does not have to be powered at full speed and then stop. Just like running a marathon, you should not sprint and stop. The inverter aircon functions the same way, more consistent pace with less or no sudden change of pace.
Quieter, Energy Efficient and Last Longer
As the change in speed and power of an inverter aircon is gradual, it produces less noise. The gradual change of work rate for the aircon also means that the aircon need not work so hard. This would also extend the lifespan of the aircon.
Cost of Inverter Aircon
Inverter aircon costs more than a non-inverter aircon because it has better technology. This technology saves utility costs over the long run. If you switch on the aircon frequently and use it for long hours, the inverter aircon is going to save you quite an amount financially.
