Inverter VS Heat Pump
Heat pumps transfer more thermal energy than they consume during operation, making them the most efficient and cost-effective way to heat a home with electricity. One of the technologies that makes our heat pumps so efficient is the inverter motor.
Inverters are an energy-saving technology that eliminates wasteful operation in air conditioners by effectively controlling motor speed. The heat pump motor works like a car's accelerator to maintain a set temperature, rather than stopping and starting the motor like a traditional setup. Compared with non-inverter air conditioners, the power loss with inverter air conditioners is small, which can save energy.
Take a runner as an example:
Non-inverter air conditioner
Starting and stopping a vigorous run, resting, and then starting and stopping again consumes more energy.
Inverter air conditioner
When maintaining a proper pace, runners can keep going without wasting energy.
Inverter technology improves overall efficiency
Non-inverter heat pumps are much less efficient because they can't control their energy output, but that's not the only way they cause inefficiency. They also put unnecessary stress on the system.
Efficient heating despite negative temperatures
The explanation of heat pumps is accompanied by many helpful claims, but there is always a caveat: Warning that heat pumps do not perform well in extremely cold environments. For a normal heat pump, temperatures below 40 degrees will cause it to struggle. Out of an abundance of caution, some homeowners may say "no thanks" and go ahead and spend more on a furnace or dual-fuel system.
Our heat pumps help end this with an inverter, a technology that helps generate heat at lower temperatures. Inverter heat pumps keep your home warm even in temperatures as low as -13 degrees outside.
