It is now possible to install a ducted air conditioning system that is equipped with inverter technology. This technology offers homeowners many benefits. Read on and learn what those benefits are.
Inverter systems prompt the compressors of air conditioners to operate as fast or as slow as the demand for conditioned air requires. For instance, the compressor of your ducted system is likely to work at a slower pace at night when there is a lower demand for cooling during the warm months of the year. This slower operation will make the system to emit less noise than it would if it were working faster. Consequently, you will have undisturbed rest since there will be no noise to affect your sleep.
Better Handling of Extremes
Inverter systems make ducted air conditioning systems better able to handle temperature extremes. For example, you can get very good performance from your HVAC system if you live in an area that experiences very hot weather. The inverter allows the compressor of your air conditioning system to work very fast in order to keep your home within the desired temperature range. This is unlike other systems that will be unable to operate faster in order to keep your home cool in that hot weather. Heating will also be rapid during the colder months of the year.
Longer Equipment Life
Inverter systems also enable your air conditioning system to last longer than another system that doesn't have an inverter system. This is because the inverter allows the components to work at their lowest capacity when there is low demand for conditioned air. The components hardly strain during such a time. This low-capacity operation reduces component wear and prolongs system life.
Affordable Energy Use
Ducted air conditioners that don't adjust their operation in order to suit the demand for conditioned air use more energy when compared to systems that adjust their operation based on the existing demand for conditioned air. Inverters can lower the energy usage of your ducted AC system since they tweak the performance parameters of the system depending on the current needs.
An inverter may not on its own deliver all the benefits above when you have a ducted air conditioning system. Other factors, such as the insulation of the ductwork, can affect the extent to which you enjoy the benefits of the inverter system. Talk to an air conditioning expert to find out about any needed changes that you need to make in order to benefit from the inverter system on your AC.
