The result of high energy emission from the sun emerges to intense temperature on the ground. This tends to make Singapore hot, especially around May and June. Statistics have shown an increase in the sale of air conditioning units and fan of this particular period. Direct insolation has brought a little sunshine to retailers who sell aircon units and electric fans. An inverter aircon uses less electricity as compared to traditional air conditioning unit because of its manner of operation. A lot of money can be easily saved by using this latest technology. The Fujitsu and Daikin brands are the prime manufacturers of this technology. The weather in Singapore at times can be somehow hot making inverter conditioner an alternative way of meeting varying cooling demand in a home.
Pros of installing inverter aircon
An Inverter aircon had many drawbacks back then which have now been overcome because of the latest technology. Back in the days, filtering of inverters electromagnetic interference was not reliably conquered. Likewise, conversion of energy losses from AC to DC was also very high. Currently, due to the advanced technology, there is a decrease in conversion losses. A compressor today can carry out its best efficiency to the point of full load. For this reason, the inverter concept is widely used in many household appliances as well as other appliances and electronic usages.
Singapore being a tropical country, at times it can experience high humidity, which is not easy to cope with. Inverter aircon is advanced to operate depending on the set temperature. It runs slowly when your room is at the appropriate temperature and more rapidly when your room requires a lessen temperature. Inverter helps to command a favorable temperature in your household despite the ambient temperature outdoors. Inverter model basically automates the cooling and heating in a power efficient and easy way. This is made possible by the help of a sensor, which records the current temperature and regulates the energy appropriately.
They consume about 30% less electrical power as compared to non inverter models, which normally work harder to supply you with the desired temperature. Unlike the traditional air conditioners, you do not have to keep on turning the system off and on to achieve the ideal temperature. It automatically adjusts and maintains the temperature in a consistent way. In addition, it is only inverters that permit you to select the indoor unit combination without any limitations. Inverter air conditioners are generally quieter as far as outdoor unit is concerned. Therefore, when the outdoor unit noise level has become unbearable, getting an inverter can be considered.
Saving on electricity bills – Besides inverter being much quiet, it has a longer compressor lifespan and it minimizes the electrical consumption especially when used for longer periods. They are of high quality, particularly those using R410A refrigerant. The inverter’s part load capabilities enable it to save electricity bills. Instead of the appliance to switch off when it gains it the set temperature, it utilizes the minimum power to see that the room is maintained at the needed temperature and adjust smoothly to any changes in that affect the set temperature.
Cons of installing inverter aircon
Whether one is using inverter or non inverter, servicing is very important. Ignorance of not servicing the appliance for a longer period can lead to aircon overhaul servicing which is a bit costly. In addition, the compressor gas for an inverter is more expensive. It is also likely to leak since it operates at a much higher pressure. The high pressure is most likely capable of breaking down the circuit board, which is costly to replace with an expired warranty.
There are certain reasons that make an inverter air conditioner expensive as compared to the non inverter. It has a complicated electronics control circuitry. As per the design requirements of the system, the electronic components such as the diodes, IGBT power modules, and electrolytic capacitors are estimated at higher ratings hence making the cost higher. The high frequency electrical noise is filtered out using filtering components like inductors and capacitors.
This increases the overall cost of the system. Chopping the voltage produces electromagnetic noise, which creates electrical interference with other household appliances. Installers as with this time charge double the price for topping up R410A than R22.
