Inverter and non-inverter air conditioners: the differences

When it comes to cooling and conditioning the air in your home, you want to get the most efficient, eco-friendly and cost-effective air conditioner to make sure you and your loved ones live in comfort and breathe clean, quality air.

Inverter technology is becoming a go-to choice for homeowners today because of their better energy efficiency and reduced noise. But how do they work, and how are they different from more traditional, non-inverter air conditioners?

Inverter and non-inverter air conditioners: the differences
What is an inverter air conditioner?

The key difference between an inverter and non-inverter air conditioner is that an inverter air conditioner can regulate the speed of its compressor motor. Once the room is cool, inverter air conditioners lower the speed of the motor to save the energy and refrigerant used to cool the air.

In comparison, non-inverter motors only run at full speed or stop. The motor runs at full speed, but turns off once room temperature drops to the desired level. This repeated on-off process can make unnecessary noise and use more energy.

Panasonic’s Standard Non-Inverter R32 Aero Series air conditioner is powered with sustainable R32 refrigerant, which has a higher cooling capacity, making the air conditioner more efficient. It uses less energy and does not produce harmful emissions that are bad for the environment.

With a 3-star energy rating, Panasonic’s Aero Series directs cool air deeper into a room with a signature iAuto feature, which cools the air 15% faster at startup, maintaining room comfort by automatically adjusting fan speed.
