It’s the second month of 2018, winters are at their peak and this is probably the last topic you’d want to read. But soon summers will be here and AC prices will soar. So now is the best time to buy a new Air Conditioner if you want to because they’re the cheapest right now due to low demand.
The amount of companies that are offering cooling solutions in the market have greatly increased over the past few years. Chinese manufacturers have dominated the market with their pocket friendly line up of air conditioners. The new technology in the market is DC Inverter ACs. What is a DC inverter AC, how is it different from a traditional AC and which one should you buy? We’ll answer all your questions in this article.
What is a DC Inverter AC?
A traditional AC has two main components that work together to cool your room – the compressor and the thermostat. When you set a temperature on your AC, say 22°C, the thermostat turns on the compressor. When the room temperature reaches the set mark, the thermostat turns off the compressor completely. During this time, the compressor uses a lot of electricity to cool down the air. But once turned off, its electricity consumption reduces to zero. So you would think that this should save a lot of electricity but it doesn’t. Why? Because our rooms are not 100% sealed, there are always leaks from where hot air can come in and raise the temperature. When this happens, the thermostat doesn’t care whether the increase is of one degree or ten, it will turn on the compressor at full strength. This constant turning on and off of compressor uses a lot of electricity.
DC Inverter AC’s solve this problem very cleverly. Instead of turning on the compressor at full strength every time, the thermostat can tell the compressor to work at a certain percentage of its full ability. So if the room temperature has increased only one or two degrees from the set temperature, the compressor will turn on but at low power setting and will consume very less electricity. The compressor in a DC Inverter AC never actually turns off, it constantly cools the room just enough to compensate for the leaking air. This maintains the cooling in the room and saves on a lot of electricity that would’ve been wasted otherwise.
