What is Inverter Technology?

All refrigerated ducted Air Conditioning systems have an outdoor unit which house the compressor. There are three main types of compressors

Fixed speed compressors are more old style technology. The compressor runs at 100% speed and then turns off when the set point temperature inside has been achieved. It will turn on again when the sensor in the home reads a 2 or 3 degree move from the set point.

An Inverter (variable speed) compressor is the most common now installed in all brands of refrigerated air conditioners. An Inverter compressor runs at 100% for the 1st 15 minutes approximately (some brands vary) and then slows down to about 80% till the set point temperature is achieved. The compressor will then slow down further to about 40 – 50% and hold the temperature at set point.

A Digital compressor is the third type, and only used on a certain few brands. This unit operates like a variable speed compressor but also then will slow down further to about 15% of its capacity to provide further operating cost savings. The issue with these types of systems is that the air flow is also reduced so large areas or multiple zones are not able to operate at the same time.


For easy of understanding

A fixed speed compressor is like driving a car in the city – stop/start

An inverter compressor is like driving in the country – reach speed and turn on cruise control

A Digital compressor is like driving in the country with cruise control but with two cylinders turned off


What size air conditioner is right for you?

A Hearth House design consultant will discuss, with you,  your family size, living styles and requirements to assist in calculating the best zoning for your ducted Air Conditioning system.

The next step is for a Hearth House consultant to carry out a full heat load design based on our knowledge of the Perth climate and the various brands of refrigerated ducted air conditioners we trust.

Our Hearth House expert will then be able to advise what size ducted Air Conditioning system you require and how many outlets, and the number of zones.

Our expert consultant will then prepare a fully documented proposal, with a design lay out so that you will be 100% confident in the knowledge of what we are recommending and what you will actually receive.

Ask your Hearth House design consultant how the system operates, how it will be installed and what sort of seasonal or yearly servicing will be required, and you will be happy knowing you are dealing with a company that has been doing this for 39 years.
