What is Inverter Technology?

Conventional air conditioners operate at a fixed speed, delivering a fixed amount of cooling and heating. Whilst trying to maintain a set temperature, they operate via a thermostat on the stop-start principle.  Once the required temperature has been reached, the compressor switches off completely (the fan still runs) and it will only switch back on again when the indoor temperatures change from the temperature set on the thermostat.

An inverter is a much more advanced technology that operates differently. It works like the accelerator of a car, gently increasing or decreasing power. It reaches the desired temperature quicker and maintains it without wild fluctuations.

That means uninterrupted comfort and energy savings. The motor spins more evenly, without the need to switch it on and off frequently. This means the big power draws that occur when starting the motor up from scratch are not as frequent with an inverter. This also results in less wear and tear on the motor in the long run.

The advanced intelligence of the latest inverter air conditioners allows the system to sense even the slightest changes in outdoor conditions, process the data and make gentle adjustments to the indoor temperature

Inverter technology provides air conditioners that are considerably more powerful yet use much less energy than conventional units. Advanced design features mean they are exceptionally quiet.
