Which are the Most Sustainable Air Conditioners?

Sustainable-Air-ConditionerThe inverter air conditioner is one of the most sustainable air conditioning units available because inverter technology is eco friendly technology and reduces the running costs by around 30%. It is the ability to vary the speed of the unit that lowers the consumption of electricity.  The inverter models stay on all the time and simply vary the running speed once the selected temperature is maintained. This means they not only use less power, but are much quieter too.By comparison, a non-inverter air con simply runs at the same start up speed all the time, switching on and off constantly to maintain the temperature. It is the constant starting up that gobbles up power and creates noise. If you are using an older model air con, it may not be an inverter type.(more…)
