1What is Inverter Technology?
Inverter air conditioners are more economical to operate and quieter to run than conventional units. They can handle greater extremes in temperature, are smoother and more stable in operation, and reach the desired temperature more quickly than conventional air conditioners. The Inverter component allows the outdoor unit to vary its speed and output to match the required capacity of the indoor unit. Thus, the Inverter model can achieve 30% more operating efficiency than conventional models and therefore, is much cheaper to run.
2Climate Control, Get it Right! - What size/kw do I need?
Getting the right kw for the space is essential to ensure the unit air conditions the space effectively while being energy efficient. Below are the three main points you need to consider before choosing your system:
- How big is the space you want to air condition? If the unit is too big for the room, it will use an excessive amount of unnecessary energy. Similarly, if the unit is too small, it will also use an excessive amount of energy as well as struggle to deal with temperature extremes.
- Think about the size and aspect of the windows as this can affect the capacity of the air conditioner required. The larger the windows, the greater the chance of heat loss or heat gain between the inside and outside areas.
- Consider your house's building materials and the kind of insulation they provide. Is your ceiling insulated? Different materials have different heat retention or loss properties and also need to be taken into account.
