Many people buy an air conditioner that is too large, thinking it will provide better cooling. However, an oversized air conditioner is actually less effective — and wastes energy at the same time. Air conditioners remove both heat and humidity from the air. If the unit is too large, it will cool the room quickly, but only remove some of the humidity. This leaves the room with a damp, clammy feeling. A properly sized unit will remove humidity effectively as it cools.
To figure out which size unit is best for your cooling needs:
If the shape of your room is other than square or rectangular, ask your sales associate to help you determine the square footage.
|Area To Be Cooled (square feet)||Capacity Needed (BTUs per hour)|
|100 up to 150||5,000|
|150 up to 250||6,000|
|250 up to 300||7,000|
|300 up to 350||8,000|
|350 up to 400||9,000|
|400 up to 450||10,000|
|450 up to 550||12,000|
|550 up to 700||14,000|
|700 up to 1,000||18,000|
|1,000 up to 1,200||21,000|
|1,200 up to 1,400||23,000|
|1,400 up to 1,500||24,000|
|1,500 up to 2,000||30,000|
|2,000 up to 2,500||34,000|
To put it simply - Inverters cost more money to buy, but are more efficient to run, which saves you money on your energy costs, which makes them better "value for money" over all.
Another advantage to Inverters is they are quieter than conventional "Fixed Speed" aircon units due to the way they achieve their efficiency.
So whats the Difference?
What is a Fixed Speed Unit?
This unit only has a single speed compressor motor that is either on or off.
It works similar to a fan heater that switches off when the desired temperature is reached and on again when the temperature drops to a set level.
What does Inverter Mean?
Inverter technology uses a variable speed compressor motor similar to a car. It simply slows down and speeds up as needed to hold a selected comfort setting.
Inverter technology provides a more precise room temperature without the temperature fluctuations of fixed speed systems.
Inverter vs Standard:
Fixed Speed Type
To get these efficiency gains it is important to use the air conditioner as it is intended:
