INVERTER Technology in AC systems
What is INVERTER?
The inverter tag found on GENERAL air conditioners signifies the ability of the unit to continuously regulate its thermal transfer flow by altering the speed of the compressor in response to cooling demand.
While traditional air conditioners use a compressor that is either working at maximum capacity or switched off periodically, to regulate the temperature of the room. A thermostat is used to measure the ambient air temperature and switch the compressor on when the ambient air temperature is too far from the desired temperature.

Benefits of INVERTER:
- Stable room temperature (± 0.5 degree).
- Reaches the set point temperature in (2~3) faster than the non inverter system
- Energy Saving:
- Needs less start up energy.
- Needs less running cost.
This saves 40% more energy than the overall cost of the non inverter system.
- At least 30% – 50% cheaper to run as it consumes less power
- Far quicker to achieve desired temperature
- The start up time is reduced by 30%
- Much quieter
- No temperature fluctuations, maximizing comfort level
- No voltage peaks from compressor
