Harness Variable Speed Cooling Technology
On a hot day, hearing your air conditioner turn on is usually a welcomed sound. That means a blast of cold air is about to come from the vents and improve your indoor comfort. What if we told you that you don’t need that sound and in fact, that sound is costing you money. Enter the inverter air conditioner. By using a variable speed compressor, an inverter air conditioning system actively manages the speed of the motor that handles your HVAC unit’s cooling power, minimizing wasted energy. The expert HVAC technicians at MoreVent can help you save on your energy bills by installing a Daiken Fit inverter cooling system that provides consistent temperatures through efficient operation.

What is an Inverter Air Conditioner?
Inverter, variable speed, or variable-capacity technology controls the output of your air conditioner during operation by restricting the frequency of electricity that will power the system. Simply put, by running your air conditioner consistently at lower power, your system will be more energy efficient. The inverter in your air conditioner raises or lowers the current to your compressor depending on your cooling needs. With temperatures in our area fluctuating constantly, an inverter HVAC system can more consistently manage your indoor comfort without the all-or-nothing approach provided by conventional air conditioners.
Inverter Air Conditioner Benefits
- Lower Energy Costs
- More Consistent Temperatures
- Lasting Comfort
- Quiet Operation
- Durable and Efficient
Inverter vs Conventional Air Conditioners
Efficiency is the primary difference between inverter and conventional air conditioning systems. This improved efficiency stems from the inverter’s ability to control the electric current that flows through your air conditioner based on system demand. A conventional air conditioner is typically either off or on. When it is off and the heat builds up inside, it will turn on when the thermostat tells it to until your target temperature is reached. This is how traditional single-stage compressors operate. There are also conventional systems that use two-stage compressors that run at a lower power most of the time but can operate at 100% capacity when needed. Because an inverter-driven air conditioner hardly ever shuts off and is constantly adjusting the cooling output, its cycles are long and slow, resulting in more consistent temperatures throughout your home. They’re especially effective at eliminating “warm spots” and adequately cooling second stories.
Comparing Air Conditioner Compressor Types
All air conditioners rely on a compressor to regulate the flow of refrigerant through the system. There are two traditional compressor types and the latest inverter-driven compressor. Conventional air conditioners use either a single-stage or two-stage compressor. When cycled on each compressor uses a different amount of energy to generate the necessary cold air to match your thermostat settings.
Single-Stage AC Compressors
Operating at 100% capacity, single-stage air conditioner cycles are short but frequent. The system is either on or off so temperature swings will be noticeable as the indoor air heats up over time until the system kicks on and lowers the temperature. This is the least efficient way to cool your property over time, but the units are the most affordable upfront because they are more simple in their operation.
Two-Stage AC Compressors
Operating at either 65% capacity (stage one) or 100% capacity (stage two), two-stage air conditioner cycles are longer than single-stage but still frequent. You will notice small temperature swings albeit not typically as extreme as a single-stage system. Two-stage systems operate at a lower power most of the time to keep more consistent temperatures and only use the top end in periods of high demand.
Inverter AC Compressors
Because the inverter is actively regulating the power reaching the compressor, inverter air conditioners can operate anywhere from 35% capacity to even 120% capacity. The cycles are very slow, are continuous, and vary slightly, providing consistent cooling power with virtually no temperature changes. This steady operation minimizes the amount of energy needed to keep you and your wallet happy.
MoreVent Can Install Reverse Cycle Systems
A reverse cycle system can cool your home or business in the summer and provide heat in the winter. Operating with versatile heating and cooling capabilities like a heat pump, an inverter-driven reverse cycle HVAC system is an all-encompassing solution to indoor comfort. By extracting heat energy from inside in the summer and outside in the winter, these systems are incredibly energy efficient, especially in extreme temperatures. The system may cost a bit more upfront, but you will save a ton on your energy bills over the life of the system.
Daikin Fit HVAC Comfort System
With a history of producing durable and efficient heating and cooling options, MoreVent has chosen to install the product line of Daiken HVAC comfort systems, including the Daikin Fit system. Daiken is one of the most popular air conditioner brands in the world, not just the United States. Our trained and reliable HVAC technicians have worked with just about every single air conditioning brand and we consistently come back to Daiken when it comes to our installation recommendations.
The Daikin Fit system provides more precise temperatures and improved humidity control all while saving space and energy. Our team is standing by to answer any questions you may have about how inverter technology and the Daikin Fit can improve your indoor comfort.
How to Choose the Right Air Conditioner
There are several determining factors when choosing the right air conditioner for your home or business. During our initial consultation, a MoreVent tech will perform an audit on your needs to help you choose. Square footage is the most important metric as this will determine the size of the unit needed to provide adequate cooling for every room. We will also speak with you about the purpose of the rooms that are receiving air conditioning, where your doors and windows are, and whether or not your home is properly insulated.
The great news about inverter air conditioners, specifically the Daikin Fit System, is that they can operate at higher efficiency over long periods. You won’t operate at its peak output level unless it is absolutely necessary. When choosing a single or two-stage air conditioner you will almost always have to choose a unit with high capacity so that you aren’t stuck with a system that can’t meet your needs in extreme temperatures. MoreVent’s air conditioning experts will explain all of the differences between the units so you can make an informed decision.
