With temperature in major cities of Pakistan crossing 45℃ and Monsoon on its way, the surge in electricity bills is imminent. The use of inverter ACs in past few years has double fold due to increasing awareness regarding its cost related benefits. Selecting best inverter AC depends on factors like energy-saving function, durability, updated features like various modes, Wi-Fi control, and clean energy factor.
People who are often bent on buying DC inverters, end up buying standard ACs when they see difference in costs as standard ACs are cheaper. However, one should know the difference between DC inverters and regular ACs to make wise decision in light of various factors.
What is a DC inverter and Why you should opt for one?
The Inverter technology known as DC works on latest technology that manages speed of compressor motor. In a standard AC, the system uses air of the internal room and cools it by moving cool air through evaporator and then back in the room. This requires compressor to continuously work using full electric power.
DC inverter on the other hand, constantly keeps the compressor on, running on lower capacity. The compressor uses more capacity and only necessary electricity when temperature in room falls below desired level. By using only partial capacity of compressors, DC inverters save more than 40-50% electricity use and thus, result in reduced bills.
One significant tip for consumers of Inverters is that inverters save energy in real terms when it is used for longer hours. Instead of turning it off and on like standard ACs, DC Inverters work more efficiently for consumers who have longer hour usage of air conditioners.
