The basics on inverter air conditioning

Inverter air conditioning is one of the latest innovations in air conditioning technology. It assumes approximately the same functions as a reversible air conditioner, being able to distribute cool air, cold air, and hot air in a home. If it currently occupies more than 80 % of housing in Japan, it is also starting to prove its worth in France. Many people appreciate this type of air conditioner for its energy performance and its operating principle, which offer multiple advantages.

The principle of operation of the inverter air conditioner

Conventional air conditioning systems operate all the time and are unable to create intelligent regulation of energy consumption. It is different from operation of an inverter air conditioning which, when the desired temperature is reached in a room, the air conditioning turns off, but is reset when the temperature is too high. This type of reversible air conditioning is infinitely variable and therefore does not only regulate your energy consumption automatically. And of course, inverter air conditioners can fully perform the heating and cooling functions to create optimal and clean indoor air.

The different models of reversible inverter air conditioning

Sur le marché, on distingue généralement deux types de ce système de climatisation, dont la climatisation réversible inverter monobloc (fixe ou mobile), et le modèle split : monosplit (1 unité extérieure + 1 unité intérieure / 1 unité extérieure + 2 ou plusieurs unités intérieures). Les unités intérieures peuvent être disponibles dans des versions compactes ou de type cassette. Leur installation est généralement plus simple que celle d’une pompe à chaleur ou d’une climatisation gainable. Le modèle mobile est directement prêt à poser et à utiliser. Cependant, les modèles split nécessitent toutefois les compétences d’un installateur professionnel pour en tirer tous les bénéfices de ce type d’appareil.

Possible additional functions

Reversible air conditioners may also offer more features for air conditioning enthusiasts. Some models come with a turbo function, which allows the device to operate at full power, reaching the desired temperature as quickly as possible, and without incurring the risk of overconsumption. Some brands also offer a night mode, where the room temperature is cooled by one degree every hour. And after five hours of constant temperature, the device turns on again to create an optimal indoor climate for cooling or heating the ambient air in several rooms of the house.

A worthwhile investment

À première vue, les climatiseurs dotés de la technologie Inverter sont plus onéreux que les climatiseurs conventionnels ou d’autres appareils split. Cependant, il convient de toujours garder à l’esprit que comparés aux climatiseurs standard, ces climatiseurs réversibles ne nécessitent que la moitié du temps nécessaire pour chauffer ou refroidir une pièce. Ils permettent des économies d énergie considérables grâce à un mode de chauffage et de rafraîchissement autonome et intuitif, sans oublier une efficacité énergétique au-dessus de la moyenne. Et vous le ressentirez clairement en termes de coûts d’exploitation et de consommation électrique, ce qui vous permettra de rentabiliser votre investissement sur le long terme.
