Over the past 10 years, technology has transformed the heating and cooling systems that we install in Indio, California. Inverters and variable speed compressors are two of the most important AC technology breakthroughs. They manipulate the electrical current and allow air conditioners to modulate according to actual cooling demand. With this technology, your air conditioner operates at capacities as low as 40 percent most of the time. It only runs full blast during the hottest hours of the day or when you need extra cooling power.
Benefits of Variable Speed Compressors
Variable speed AC systems provide precise temperature controls, adjustable airflow rates and excellent energy efficiency. Take a look at the benefits.
- Minimal Temperature Swings: Since they run at variable capacities, high-efficiency air conditioners maintain consistent temperatures within half a degree of your thermostat setpoint.
- Energy Efficiency: Variable speed compressors are 60 percent more efficient than older single-stage HVAC units and 30 percent more efficient than basic Energy Star models.
- Reduced Wear and Tear: Standard air conditioners power up approximately 70 times per day. By running longer, variable speed models prevent spikes in energy use and minimize wear and tear.
- Humidity and Air Quality: The same technology that saves you energy also improves your indoor air quality, provides enhanced humidity control and helps your HVAC system remove more allergens.
- Protection From Faults: Variable frequency drives provide an extra layer of protection from electrical faults and mechanical problems that could damage your HVAC equipment.
- Reduced Operating Noise: Variable speed air conditioners are whisper quiet. Trane makes several models that operate at 55 decibels, which is comparable to a normal conversation.
