What is Inverter AC and How it is Different from Non Inverter AC?

12th May 2022
"Inverter technology is designed in such a way that it can save 30-50% of electricity (units consumed) over a regular air conditioner."

If you are looking to buying an air conditioner, the most efficient technology that is available in market today is the Inverter Technology for AC.

Inverter technology is designed in such a way that it can save 30-50% of electricity (units consumed) over a non inverter Air conditioner.

Have a look what is inverter technology and how is it different from a non inverter ACs?

What is Inverter Air Conditioner?

An inverter is a device for converting frequency. The technology is used in many home appliances and controls electric voltage, current and frequency.

Inverter air-conditioners vary their cooling/heating capacity by adjusting the power supply frequency of their compressors.

When compressor needs more power, it gives it more power. When it needs less power, it gives less power.

With this technology, the compressor is always on, but draws less power or more power depending on the temperature of the incoming air and the level set in the thermostat.

The speed and power of the compressor is adjusted appropriately. This technology is being used successfully for air conditioners and refrigerators.

This technology is currently available only in split air conditioners.

Advantage of Inverter Technology

Every air conditioner is designed for a maximum peak load. It is very important to install a right sized air conditioner in a room.

For example a 1.5 ton AC is designed for a certain size of room and 1 ton for a different size which can be depend on average temp of place.

A regular air conditioner of 1.5ton capacity will always run at peak power requirement when the compressor is running.

An air conditioner with inverter technology will run continuously but will draw only that much power that is required to keep the temperature stable at the level desired. Its automatically adjusts its capacity based on the requirement of the room it is cooling.

Thus drawing much less power and consuming lesser units of electricity.

Although air conditioner with Inverter Technology adjusts its capacity based on the room requirement.

Please make sure that take advise from expert can evaluate the room size and air conditioner capacity before you make a purchase.

At glance difference between Inverter Technology AC and non inverter AC

1. The heat load in a room does not remain constant and it varies from seasons, varies based on number of people, varies between day and night, varies based on climate profiles of your location.

2. Inverter technology air conditioners are variable speed/ variable tonnage air conditioners and thus operationally they are quite different from regular air conditioners that have single speed compressors and single tonnage.

3. Inverter technology air conditioners adjust their speed/tonnage depending on heat load of a room. Whereas regular air conditioners do not.

4. The inverter tech AC changes the flow rate of refrigerant based on the heat of the room. When heat is less, the flow rate is less, when heat is more, the flow rate is more. And it does not switch off the compressor ever. It just makes sure that if temperature setting is 24, it is maintained at that level.

As technology advances, we can find more brands and products entering the market with advanced features from energy efficient to health care benefits.

While buying an air conditioner you pour a huge amount of investment. And, in order to make the investment-worthy.

It’s recommended to clean the AC before you put it to use this summer. We are sharing a few steps to how to clean AC filters to be summer-ready.

You should be extra cautious while doing this as the sharp fins of the evaporator coil could cut your skin.
After using the toothbrush, take a clean cloth and remove the dust from the AC.
To clean the filters, put them under a water tap and clean thoroughly.

Now, turn the AC on and that’s it.
 

Cleaning the outdoor unit is a bit difficult. First of all, you need to turn off the fuse that controls the air conditioner and vacuum the condenser fins on the top of the air conditioner. After this, use a soft-bristled vacuum cleaner to remove any dust or debris that may inhibit air-flow.

If you want to deep clean the external unit, unscrew the top grill and remove the fan without disturbing the electrical connections. Use a damp cloth to wipe any dust or debris from the fan. Spray the inside of the empty air conditioner unit with moderate pressure from a water hose and put it all back. Leave the unit to dry before starting it again.

Things to consider while buying a air conditioner

6th October 2020
"Make your investment worthwhile by taking prudent considerations before buying an air conditioner."

Air conditioner has become an indispensable part of many individuals. To survive in the scorching heat, the air conditioner has become the greatest aid. As technology advances, we can find more brands and products entering the market with advanced features from energy efficient to health care benefits. While buying an air conditioner you pour a huge amount of investment. And, in order to make the investment-worthy, keep the following checklist in mind.

Size of the room

While buying an air conditioner do not forget to check the size of your room. If you buy a smaller air conditioner, the energy consumption may increase whereas if you buy a bigger air conditioner, it may turn on and off constantly and won't be able to dehumidify properly. So, keep in mind to buy an AC with suitable cooling capacity for your room.

Noise control

Every AC comes with a noise level of operation in its specification. Unless you want to disturb the beauty sleep of you, your family and your neighbors, do not purchase an AC with a noise level above 50 dB.

Energy efficiency

Would you like to save the environment and energy whilst having a preferable temperature in your house? If yes, then go for the high stars rated AC by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). The energy stars rated AC fairly consume less electricity and will not burden your budget in long run.

Blower size

The blower fan is located inside the AC and is responsible for the density of airflow inside your room. The bigger the blower size, the stronger the airflow of the AC; as a result, there won't be any form of suffocation. Also, the blower directs air to different directions of the room.

Installation

The performance of an AC and its durability depends upon its installation. Make sure that the AC is installed by professionals without any flaws. Any mistakes during its installation may cause severe harm to you later.

Type- window or split

Basically, AC comes in 2 different types i.e. Window AC and Split AC. Window AC is designed in a compact form in order to install it in the window. The split AC, however, comprises two parts, a compressor unit that should be installed outside the house and an indoor unit that is to be installed inside your room. Relatively, split AC has a better flow of air.

Technology compatible

AC, nowadays, come with several features. It is essential to go for the AC that caters to all the significant and essential features. Also, it is best to stick with the well-established brands that furnish all the essential features at a reasonable price.

Air swing

Air swing implies the ability of AC to direct the airflow in different parts of the room. Seek out for the AC with airflow and air swing settings as the AC is not meant to flow the air in only one place.

Easy to clean filters

With clean filters, you can save energy and the life of your AC as well. To maintain your AC at its best condition for a longer period, one needs to clean the filters regularly. So, ensure that the filters are easily accessed and can be cleaned effectively.

Warranty

First off, try to stick with the well-established brands, and second off, check the warranty period. Some products and brands offer less warranty period whilst some are longer. While buying a new unit check the manufacturer's website and ensure the warranty promised.
