Variable-Speed AC Compressors Help Cut Cooling Costs

March 22, 2020

When your air conditioner has reached its lifespan or breaks down and needs replacing, you have a lot of options. In Charlotte, North Carolina, the hot and humid summers mean that you need an effective and efficient air conditioning system. Variable-speed AC compressors are an innovative technology worth your consideration. Here are three ways that variable-speed AC compressors help cut cooling costs without sacrificing comfort:

Lower Total Energy Consumption

Variable-speed AC compressors operate at the lowest speed needed for the temperature and humidity conditions in your home. On a mild day, they operate at the lowest speed. On hot and humid days, they operate at high speed until they reach the thermostat’s temperature setting. This automated speed control lowers the system’s total energy usage. As a result, you save money.

Integration With Smart Thermostats

These compressors integrate with the newest programmable and smart thermostats. With a smart thermostat’s advanced algorithms controlling the cycles of the variable-speed AC compressor, the system will operate at maximum energy efficiency without you having to do anything. As a result, you’ll enjoy more comfort and convenience.

Fewer System Breakdowns

Variable-speed compressors have fewer on and off cycles. When the system does cycle, it has a longer running time. The starting and ending processes cause wear and tear on the moving parts and electrical connections. Since variable-speed compressors start and stop fewer times, they’re less likely to have breakdowns and need repairs.

Longer Compressor Lifespan

Finally, fewer cycles means less wear and tear on the compressor. The variable-speed compressor’s lifespan is typically two to four years longer than a single-speed compressor’s lifespan. If you live in your home for a long time, this means you won’t have to replace the cooling system. Air conditioning systems are a big investment, and longer system lifespans save money.

Variable-speed air conditioning compressors deliver consistent comfort to every part of your home, and they also improve your indoor air quality and provide optimal humidity control. Our team at Bradham Brothers, Inc. offers expert installation services for variable-speed AC compressors for your home.
