My misunderstanding regarding Inverter AC was that it is designed to run on an inverter system !!! So when my friend said he has bought inverter AC due to power cuts in his area, I did not bother to study about it and blindly bought standard split AC with 5 star rating … my assumption was that 5 star means I am saving on my bills !!!
But after understanding in detail about inverter Air conditioners I can surely say that it is a myth that they are designed to run on an inverter power backup system …
How Inverter Air Conditioner Works ?
An inverter controls the speed of the compressor motor, which changes as per the temperature the Air Conditioner is set at.
The compressor motor of a non-inverter Air Conditioner only operates at a maximum capacity, or is switched off altogether, leading to unnecessary electricity consumption and higher electricity bills.
Whereas an Inverter Air Conditioner is able to control the speed of the compressor motor eliminating stop-start cycles, resulting into less breakdowns and cheaper running cost.
Inverter AC Vs Non Inverter AC comparison
|Compressor is continuous ON at variable power consumption mode||Compressor switches ON/OFF|
|Economical in long run cutting down running costs, upto 60% less consumption||High running costs|
|High initial investment||Low initial investment|
|~15% Faster cooling achieved practically in room||Slow cooling achieved due to ON/OFF cycle of compressor|
|You will feel very less fluctuation in room temperature||You will feel fluctuation in room temperature as the compressor switches ON/OFF time to time|
|Compressor keeps running at low power consumption mode after achieving desired set temperature||Compressor stops working as the set temperature achieved|

From the comparison of Inverter AC Vs Non Inverter AC it is pretty clear that Inverter AC’s are Economical, Stable in operation, Faster for cooling and silent than traditional air conditioners.
So think twice before you finalize your purchase of air conditioner this summer and if you are running on solar energy surely Inverter AC is a choice for you.
Have a cool summer !!
