When Your Air Conditioner’s Motor Can Adjust Speed, Watch Energy Savings Climb
If you’re like most Florida homeowners, cutting your air conditioning costs is a top priority. While there are many factors at play when it comes to the efficiency of your air conditioner, there is one that most homeowners tend to overlook – A/C motor efficiency.
If you’re still using a single-speed A/C motor, you’re missing out on several distinct advantages offered by variable-speed systems. For example, no matter what the day’s temperature may be, your system’s A/C motor can only operate at one speed — and that’s full blast. With a variable-speed motor, however, your system can adjust to the specific cooling needs of the day, alleviating system strain and reducing your monthly energy costs.
In addition to cutting energy consumption and increasing energy savings, variable-speed A/C motors offer a number of benefits:
- Comfort consistency: With single-speed systems, you tend to get big blasts of cold air every time your cooling system comes on. Variable-speed A/C motors, however, increase and decrease speeds gradually, which means your airflow and comfort levels will remain more constant.
- Quieter operation: This gradual approach also means that your system won’t make as much noise cycling on and off.
- Improved indoor air quality: The fact that your A/C motor can run at slower speeds means that the air in your system won’t always be whipping through at maximum velocity. Thus, your system will have a better change to thoroughly filter and dehumidify your air.
If you’re looking for ways to improve the efficiency of your air conditioning system, consider upgrading to a variable-speed A/C motor.
