Inverter Aircon TechnologyAir conditioners are one of the biggest power-consuming appliances used in the home. So you naturally want one that can be run inexpensively. That's where inverter technology comes into play. To explain how, let's use temperature setting as an example. If you set the temperature to 23C in the summer for an air conditioner without inverter control, the air conditioner will automatically turn itself off once the room temperature drops below 23C, and will then turn back on when the temperature rises above 23C. This makes it necessary for the air conditioner to repeatedly turn itself on and off, a nd a great deal of electricity is wasted due to fluctuations in room temperature above and below the preset temperature. In the case of an inverter air conditioner, however, it is possible to maintain a fixed temperature without having to repeatedly turn the power on and off. A compressor inside an air conditioner's outdoor unit changes the compression of the refrigerant gas, making it possible to adjust the temperature. This adjustment is carried out by changing the speed of the motor inside the compressor. Since the speed can be controlled over wide-range by varying the frequency of the motor, inverter control makes it possible for air conditioners to not only be more energy efficient and quieter, but also capable of fine tuned home temperature control.
