If you’ve even considered getting an AC recently, you must have come across the term ‘Inverter AC’ in your searches. This cooling technology has been popular for a while now and offers greater efficiency over regular air conditioners, among other things. In fact, if you’re going for an AC in 2020, it doesn’t make sense to invest in a non-inverter model anymore. That is primarily because of all the advantages an upgrade to an inverter AC offers. Here’s how:

Greater energy savings

Normally, the compressor of an AC works in two states – full power or zero power. However, inverter ACs use variable power compressor to achieve energy savings. They run at full capacity until the target room temperature is reached and then switch to lower power to maintain that temperature.

Less noise

Since the AC is not constantly running at full power, the level of noise generated is also less. It doesn’t keep turning off and on either, instead, it keeps running at a consistent low power mode with minimal noise.

Longer lasting

Since the non-inverter AC is always switching between full capacity and zero load, it wears down quicker than the inverter AC. The inverter AC runs smoothly for longer durations.

Uniform & faster cooling

If the temperature of the room goes below the target temperature, a non-inverter AC switches off entirely. This eventually makes it take longer to get back to the target temperature, causing intermittent periods of low cooling. On the other hand, when the inverter AC hits the target temperature, it stays at it by adjusting the speed of cooling and maintains consistent cooling.


Due to reduced startup time and better energy efficiency, an inverter AC is also better for the advantage. With an inverter AC, your comfort doesn’t have to come at the cost of the environment.
