Improved Efficiency & Temperature Control
When extreme temperatures roll in, your air conditioner works overtime to keep you cool. If you have an inverter air conditioning system, those hot days won’t send your utility bills through the roof anymore. You’ll enjoy smooth, quiet operation of your air conditioner and consistent temperatures all day long. The experts at Gold Star can install a new Daikin Fit inverter air conditioning system in your home. Contact us today for a free estimate.
The Advantage of Variable Speed Cooling Technology
When it’s hot, most of us are used to the sound of the air conditioner turning on. That means a welcomed blast of cold air is going to come from the vents and improve your indoor comfort. What if we told you that you don’t need that sound and in fact, that sound is what is causing your energy bill to go up.
Enter the inverter air conditioner. Equipped with a variable speed compressor, an inverter air conditioning system actively manages the speed of the motor that handles your HVAC unit’s cooling capabilities. This steady operation minimizes wasted energy that standard cooling systems expend. The HVAC technicians at Gold Star can help you save on your energy bills and enjoy more consistent temperature control and efficient operation by installing a Daikin Fit inverter cooling system.
What is an Inverter Air Conditioning System?
Inverter, variable speed, or variable-capacity air conditioners control the output of your HVAC system by regulating the frequency of electricity that powers the motor. The ability to run your air conditioner consistently at lower power allows your system to be more energy efficient. Depending on your cooling needs, the inverter in your air conditioner will raise or lower the current to your compressor in small increments. With constantly fluctuating temperatures in the Delaware Valley area, an inverter HVAC system can better manage your indoor comfort without the all-or-nothing approach air conditioners have historically provided.
Benefits of Inverter Air Conditioners
- Consistent Temperature
- Lasting Indoor Comfort

- Durable and Efficient
- Lower Energy Costs
Inverter Air Conditioning Systems vs Conventional Air Conditioners
The main difference between conventional and inverter air conditioning systems is their efficiency. The inverter’s ability to efficiently control the electric current that your air conditioner uses based on system demand is what gives it the edge over a conventional air conditioner. Conventional systems are either running or not. When it is off and your indoor temperature rises, traditional single-stage compressors will turn on when the target temperature is reached. There are also conventional systems that use two-stage compressors. These run at a lower power most of the time but can operate at full capacity when needed.
Comparing Air Conditioner Compressor Types
There are three common compressor types used in air conditioners. Because all air conditioners rely on a compressor to regulate the flow of refrigerant through the system, how those compressors function is important to understand. Conventional air conditioners use either a single-stage or two-stage compressor. When your thermostat cycles on, each compressor uses a different amount of energy to generate the necessary cold air to match your comfort settings. The newest, inverter-driven compressors run low and slow to require less energy consumption.
Single-stage air conditioner cycles are short but frequent and operate at either 0% or 100% capacity. Temperature swings will be noticeable as the indoor air will heat up over time until the system turns backs on to lower the temperature. Because the system is either on or off, it is the least efficient way to cool over time. These systems are the most affordable upfront because the units are simpler in their operation.
Two-stage air conditioner cycles are longer than single-stage but still frequent. These systems operate at either 65% capacity (stage one) or 100% capacity (stage two). Although not as extreme as a single-stage system, you will notice occasional indoor temperature swings. To keep more consistent temperatures, two-stage systems operate at lower power most of the time and only use the top end in periods of high demand.
Inverter air conditioners can operate anywhere from 35% capacity to even 120% capacity. Because the inverter is actively regulating the power to the compressor, the cycles are very slow. The output varies only slightly, providing consistent cooling power with virtually no temperature changes. You’ll see a drop in your energy consumption because this steady operation minimizes the amount of energy needed to keep you cool.
Gold Star Can Install Reverse Cycle Systems
Commonly known as a heat pump, a reverse cycle system can cool your home or business in the summer and provide heat in the winter. An inverter-driven reverse cycle HVAC system is an all-encompassing solution to indoor comfort. It provides versatile heating and cooling capabilities by extracting heat energy from inside in the summer and outside in the winter. These systems are incredibly energy efficient, especially when the outdoor temperature changes drastically. Reverse cycle systems are costly because they combine two systems, but you will definitely save a ton over the life of the system on your operation costs.

How to Choose the Right Air Conditioning System For Your Home
When deciding on the right air conditioner for your home or business there are several factors you should consider. To calculate the size of the unit needed to provide adequate comfort for every room, your square footage is the most important metric. During an initial consultation, a Gold Star HVAC technician will perform an audit of your property while noting where your doors and windows are, and whether your walls and ceiling are properly insulated. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the new air conditioning system selection process.
When looking at single or two-stage air conditioners, you will almost always have to choose a unit with higher capacity than you really need so that you aren’t stuck with a system that will underperform in extreme temperatures. The great news about inverter air conditioners like the Daikin Fit system, is that they don’t operate at peak output level unless it is absolutely necessary. The AC pros at Gold Star will help you make an informed decision by explaining all of the differences between each type of air conditioner.
