An inverter type air conditioner is used to control the speed of the compressor motor to drive variable refrigerant flow in an air conditioning system to regulate the conditioned-space temperature. By contrast, traditional air conditioners regulate temperatures by using a compressor that is periodically either working at maximum capacity or switched off entirely. Inverter-equipped air conditioners have a variable-frequency drive that incorporates an adjustable electrical inverter to control the speed of the motor and thus the compressor and cooling output.
- Cost Effective
- Longer life span
- Energy efficient
- New technology
Exploring the physical properties of these refrigerants is a good place to start. R-22 is an HCFC and contains a small amount of chlorine, which gives it an OzoneDepletionPotential of greater than 0 – 0.555.. R-410A, conversely is an HFC and has an ODP of 0. The elimination of ODP however, is not the only reason that R-410A has become the leading replacement choice over other available HFC candidates. One of the most beneficial properties is its large volumetric capacity, which enables it to remove more heat than R-22.
- Environmentally Friendly. Zero Ozone Depleting Substances
- More Energy Efficient thus lower electrical bills
- More Reliable. Air-conditioners using R410a are designed for heavier duty and has a thicker compressor shell as compared to air-conditioners using R22
- Slightly Quieter. The parts are generally smaller and sturdier thus have less vibration
- Cleaner Piping systems. R410A has an additional device called “filter drier”. Its purpose is to filter, clean and dry the refrigerant and oil as it moves through the piping system.
