What's an inverter?
An inverter is energy saving technology that eliminates wasted operation in air conditioners by efficiently controlling motor speed.

 



Air conditioners maintain set temperature by cooling when room temperature rises above the set temperature and heating when the room temperature falls below the set temperature.

Motor speed in non-inverter type air conditioners remains constant and temperature is adjusted by turning the motor ON and OFF, which consumes more energy.

In inverter type air conditioners, temperature is adjusted by changing motor speed without turning the motor ON and OFF.

Compared to non-inverter type air conditioners, air conditioners with inverters have less power loss and can save in energy.

Starting and stopping hard running, resting, then starting and stopping once again uses more energy.
