Why should you trust me that whatever I will tell about this topic (Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC), it will be 100% true. Because I recently purchased 1 inverter & 1 non inverter AC for my two different rooms. So I am the right person to tell you about this topic honestly without dragging you in the false marketing terms.
Ofcourse you know the definition of inverter & non inverter ACs If are clicking this article (Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC). But still I would like to introduce you with basic knowledge in my way of Inverter and non inverter ACs. You may skip these definitions if you are already know. Those who are curious to know about these topics in different way, you are welcome to read from start my friend.
What Is An Inverter Air Conditioner?
Inverter ACs slow down their compressor’s speed when the temperature achieves set by you. In this case, you will not notice the power saving benefit.
In the comparison (Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC), I will explain in what conditions you will save your electricity bill. Because you can’t take benefit of saving electricity in any situation. No one tell you about this secret point (Neither salesmen nor any other website).
Generally brands try to sell inverter ACs more than non inverter ACs by targeting some marketing tactics.
Why Brands Try To Sell Inverter ACs More Than Non inverter ACs?
Because inverter ACs are costlier than non inverter ACs. That’s why they don’t want to share each and every information with you. They only showcase the best points.
When Inverter AC Saves Power?
If you are using an inverter AC for long hours 8 or more than 8 hours, it saves your electricity bill. For shorter period of time, you get same electricity bill as you find in non inverter ACs.
What Is An Non inverter Air Conditioner?
First of all non inverter ACs are budget friendly (Approximately 8 to 10k less than inverter ACs). I purchased a non inverter AC from Panasonic brand. I have shared my experience of Panasonic AC in my other Article:
Are Panasonic ACs Good? Personal Experience
Because I had to purchase two ACs for my home, I purchased one non inverter AC (Panasonic brand) and other inverter AC from LG brand.
Seriously I am happy with my both air conditioners.
Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC : Comparison
Now we come back to the question we started with, Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC.
I purchased two ACs recently “Inverter AC & Non inverter AC”. So I can tell you on which basis you have to select air conditioner.
Lets dive into the actual points that I am explaining here. Please pay a close attention if you are seriously taking a best decision of choosing inverter or non inverter AC:
Does Inverter AC Reduce Electricity Bill?
Salesmen in the showroom often try to sell the inverter AC by saying this:
“Inverter ACs consume less electricity and save upto 60 to 70% energy”. But this is only marketing gimmick, No matter you choose any AC brand. No inverter AC can save upto 60 to 70% electricity.
If you are planning to choose inverter AC for your home, you will notice only15 to 20% less energy consumption that too dependent on your room conditions.
So in the next point, I will the explain about the room conditions.
Does Non inverter AC consumes More Electricity?
Slightly more than inverter ACs.
Here we end our electricity bill’s comparison “Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC“.
When Should You Consider A Non inverter AC?
There is no use of considering inverter AC (Specially if you are using inverter AC in whole day in the below situations I am telling you here) if:
- Your room at top floor.
- There is a direct sunlight on your room.
- Kitchen inside your room.
- Big windows in your room.
- Open Room.
- Any heat source inside, outside or besides your room.
If you are still choosing inverter AC after reading my above points, you will surely compromise with cooling as well as electricity bill.
But in the same above situations an inverter AC can provide you the sufficient cooling if you are using it at night time. And can expect normal power saving but not too much.
Why Sufficient Cooling?
Because of any heat source in your room in the whole day, your room needs more time for cooling at night time than normal. And a inverter AC can’t do that for you because inverter AC runs at variable speed.
So, my best suggestion is to choose a non inverter AC in above conditions or any heat source you find in your room. You will get the same electricity bill (There is no major changes in it) but you will enjoy proper cooling in non inverter Acs.
When Should You Consider A Inverter AC?
Choose a inverter AC (Weather you use AC in day time or night time) if:
- There is no direct sunlight above your room.
- If there is a ground floor.
- Sealed room packed with windows & door.
In this way, you will get 100% power saving benefit. You will notice 15 to 20% less electricity bill if you are taking an inverter AC in the above situations.
Here we end our room condition’s comparison “Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC“.
If you are using your AC only for 4 to 5 hours, choose non inverter AC.
Choose inverter AC if your usage of AC is for 8 to 10 hours.
Here we end our usage’s comparison “Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC“.
Because of their compressor mechanism, inverter air conditioning machines are more adaptable.
Based on the thermostat and room settings, they will operate.
Based on the room’s current temperature, they modify their procedures.
With this flexibility, it is clear that inverter AC units outperform other types.
A non-inverter air conditioner, but at the other hand, will work just fine but will run at a fixed level.
The inverter air conditioners yet again triumph in terms of cooling capacity. However, this does not imply that a non-inverter air conditioner cannot effectively cool the space. It works as it should, therefore you should think about other things as well before making a choice.
Here we end our performance’s comparison “Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC“.
As seen by the three areas mentioned above, inverter air conditioners outperform non-inverter kinds.
The systems’ worth, on the other hand, is a different matter.
Since non-inverters are significantly less expensive, some households opt for them. They carry out their duties as required.
They do a good job of chilling any place, despite the fact that they can be loud and ineffective at conserving energy.
The price may be the answer if you’re seeking for an excuse not to choose an inverter air conditioner.
Due to the initial cost of an inverter air conditioner, those with restricted budgets could opt for a non-inverter. However, you might want to think about investing in an inverter air conditioner. Although it first costs more, it will ultimately enable you to save money.
Here we end our cost’s comparison “Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC“.
We hope the above mentioned factors have enabled you or assisted you well about this topic: Inverter AC Vs Non inverter AC.
