An inverter air conditioner is better suited for one’s home if the operating time is greater than five hours per day. In this scenario, one would be able to recover the extra initial cost of an inverter air conditioner over a regular, non inverter one in two to three years. For lesser usage times, a regular, non inverter air conditioner would be a more suitable choice.
That being said South Africa introduced an EER standard last year whereby units have to maintain a minimum energy standard so all units should be more energy efficient than they were previously.
When compared with a man running
Non-Inverter Air Conditioner
Starting and stopping hard running, resting, then starting and stopping once again uses more energy.
Inverter Air Conditioner
When an appropriate pace is maintained, a runner can continue without wasting energy.
In short it can be said that inverter aircon are more precise. Non inverter Aircons provides a fix heating or cooling by a fixed power with the compressor running at a fixed speed. The compressor has to start and stop when required. On the other hand inverter aircon have a controllable compressor that provides the exact amount of heating and cooling as needed. So, in terms of efficiency and precision, inverter air conditioners are much better.
