We asked an air conditioning expert to talk about the most frequently asked questions about Aircon and share tips on how you can save on electric bills.
Inverters, Compressors, Freon, Portable Aircon, Centralized Aircon and more – are you overwhelmed with what you need to know to buy the right air conditioner for your home and don’t know where to start? Don’t worry- here is a quick guide to all the Aircon and energy saving items directly from the experts.
Start with the basics
By now, most people have probably heard of electronic inverter technology. It sounds rather technical, but what exactly is it and what does it do for home appliances?
Simply put, an inverter is a control circuit that changes the electrical frequency. In an air conditioner, the inverter controls the electrical energy linearly with the conditions of the room to achieve comfortable and energy-saving activities. Meanwhile, non-inverter air conditioners only run or stop at full speed, resulting in a waste of energy.
According to NGR, Panasonic air-conditioning Philippine product specialist Neil Gallero, you can compare it to driving. You save more fuel when driving without stopping on the expressway than when driving on a normal road where you have to stop at traffic signs and converging roads.
The same analogy applies to air conditioners. At startup, the inverter runs at maximum power for rapid cooling. Once the set temperature is reached, the inverter maintains efficient operation to minimize temperature changes. This in turn, prevents wastage of electricity.
Simply put, inverting air conditioners give you better power efficiency versus non-inverter air conditioners, which leads to saving on electricity bills.
This is why more and more consumers are now choosing electronic inverter equipment for their families.
Advantages of inverter technology
In addition to power-efficiency, electronic signal inverter technology offers more benefits. One of which is the long lifespan for your equipment.
The motor, especially the compressor running inside your device, feels the most pressure during startup. Since non-inverter compressors start and stop periodically, they may end much earlier than inverter compressors.
With Panasonic appliances that are certified in Japanese quality, customers can expect higher quality and reliability. With over 60 years of expertise in air conditioning, Panasonic products are built with innovative features that provide unparalleled comfort, energy-efficiency and ease of use!
Another advantage of inverter technology is that it can help reach a set temperature faster than a non-inverter air conditioner.
This is even better if you have a Panasonic inverter air conditioner. It comes with PAM (Pulse Amplitude Modulation) and PWM (Pulse Width Modulated Wave) which provide faster cooling at startup than conventional inverters.
According to Neil Gallero of NGR, conventional inverters may have more control over the rotation of the compressor, whereas Panasonic’s inverters are more precise and smoother in controlling the rotation speed of the compressor.
He added that with PAM, inverter technology increases the power output to accelerate the compressor’s speed, allowing it to deliver strong, cool air at a faster rate. Once the set temperature is reached, PWM stabilizes the rotation speed to maintain a set temperature for constant comfort but still maintains optimal power-efficiency.
Panasonic’s unique and patented inverter technology enables customers to receive #PureEnergySavings. At the same time, different types of aircones have this inverter feature. Panasonic has window type inverter aircon and split type inverter aircon.
Now, you can enjoy the wonderful coolness without breaking the bank!
Consideration in choosing the right air conditioner
Customers often ask what power the air conditioner has in a particular room. According to NGR, Neil Gallero, the dimensions of the house are important in identifying the best model. The size of the house determines which horsepower should best fit your needs. However, an accurate room survey is still the best way to evaluate.
Through a room survey, the ideal location for the air conditioner can be determined to give the best cooling condition for the room. Room surveys also account for the various heat sources present in the room.
Since every room in your home is different, it is almost impossible to nail just one model that you can use everywhere. Fortunately, this dilemma can be solved if you get a Panasonic air conditioner with ECO + AI features. The ECO + AI feature ensures that your appliance can intelligently balance energy-saving and comfort without any hassle.
Eng. Neil Gallero added that ECO mode automatically learns with artificial intelligence (AI) control and judges what is the best ECO level based on multiple factors. The condition of the house (size and ventilation) and the presence of heat sources (sunlight, heat from other appliances, body heat).
In addition, this feature balances the power consumption with the time it takes to reach the desired temperature to maintain your comfort with minimal energy dissipation.
As a result, ECO + AI allows you to save up to 20% more energy! This is a big check for any potential customer.
Homeowners are also looking for other features that give them a big return. On top of the excellent power-efficiency, Panasonic air conditioners have features that ensure optimal air purification.
Panasonic has patented nanoTM X technology. This prevents viruses and bacteria from being present in the air. Moreover, this maintenance-free titanium nano6x generator prevents the novel coronavirus.
It has been verified by Texel, a global contract research firm. More than 91% of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) activity was interrupted within 8 hours at the 6.7m³ test site.123
Finding the perfect air conditioner for your home is quite a task. Even the smallest details can make a big difference. Here’s how to #carewins every day with Panasonic air conditioners here: https://www.panasonic.com/ph/consumer/air-conditioners.html
