Powerful Performance with Efficiency
A cool and comfortable indoor environment is now essential for your living space. It starts with choosing the right air-conditioner that best suits your needs and lifestyle. The most important thing to consider before buying one is choosing between two technologies – Inverter and non-Inverter. Generally, an Inverter air-conditioner provides powerful and stable cooling performance while saving energy.
What is an Inverter?
An Inverter is a control circuit that varies electrical frequency. In an air-conditioner, the Inverter regulates the electric power linearly in accordance with room conditions in order to achieve comfortable and energy-saving operations. Meanwhile, non-Inverter air-conditioners only run at a full speed or stop, thus leading to energy waste.
How does an Inverter work?
The principle is much like driving a car. It is smoother to drive a car when there is less repetition in its start-and-stop operation.
In the case of a vehicle, for example, which driving condition saves you more fuel? Driving on a normal road that has many traffic signals and requires you to stop frequently, or driving on an expressway where you can travel without stopping? Needless to say, the expressway will result in better fuel efficiency.
A similar analogy applies to air-conditioners. At start-up, the Inverter runs at maximum power to provide quick cooling that cools the room promptly. Once the set temperature is reached, the Inverter maintains efficient operation to minimise changes in temperature. This prevents wasteful consumption of electricity and keeps the room temperature at a comfortable level.
Benefits of Inverter Technology
The energy-saving abilities of Inverters provide a host of benefits for your comfort, including fast cooling upon start-up, constantly maintaining a set temperature, a wider power output range and reduced noise levels.

Inverter Air-Conditioner Vs. Non-Inverter Air-Conditioner
While both Inverter air-conditioners and non-Inverter air-conditioners aim to keep you comfortable, both types of air-conditioners are different from each other in terms of functionality and energy consumption. Here’s a comparison:
Fast cooling at start-up
An Inverter air-conditioner can reach a set temperature faster when compared to a non-Inverter air-conditioner. The Inverter’s technology operates the compressor to run at maximum speed which cools the room faster and more evenly, resulting in less waiting time when you return home during hot days.
Maintain a stable temperature after reaching a set temperature
An Inverter air-conditioner uses less power by varying the speed of the compressor according to changes in room temperature. This reduces temperature fluctuations (which usually cause your body to repeatedly feel too hot or too cold), and allows you to enjoy constant and comfortable cooling.
A conventional non-Inverter air-conditioner can only operate at a constant speed, which is too powerful to maintain a set temperature. Thus, it switches the compressor on and off repeatedly. This results in bigger temperature fluctuations, leading to more energy wasted.
An Inverter air-conditioner varies the rotation speed of the compressor, which is a more precise method in maintaining a set temperature. Thus, an Inverter air-conditioner saves more energy while allowing you to stay comfortable at all times.
Wider Power Output Range
An Inverter has a wider power output range than a non-Inverter, allowing it to be more flexible in changing the amount of power it uses to operate. This means it provides a balanced comfort level depending on the number of occupants in a room.
When there is a small number of people in a room, the rotation speed of the compressor is slowed down to prevent overcooling the environment which uses less power while saving energy. If there is a large number of occupants, more heat is produced in the room. Thus, the compressor increases its rotation speed and runs at maximum power to lower the heat level in the environment.
Whether you are entertaining family and friends or just unwinding, enjoy these moments without compromising comfort.
Air-conditioner noise levels range differently between an Inverter air-conditioner and a non-Inverter air-conditioner. Typically, a non-Inverter air-conditioner generates louder noises than an Inverter air-conditioner due to the frequent on-off cycles that make the compressor run at a higher power which creates a lot more noise. An Inverter air-conditioner is able to maintain its compressor at a lower speed due to less temperature fluctuations. Therefore, the compressor does not need to run at a higher power to maintain a set temperature, which leads to a quieter environment. The quiet operation of an Inverter air-conditioner does not disturb you while you study and allows you to get a restful night’s sleep.
Panasonic Inverter Vs. Conventional Inverter
Panasonic’s Inverter reduces power consumption by varying the speed of the compressor according to the temperature changes with the aim of minimising the temperature fluctuations so you can enjoy consistent cooling comfort.
Panasonic’s Inverters come with PAM (Pulse Amplitude Modulation) and PWM (Pulse Width Modulated Wave) which provide faster cooling at start-up and better control on the speed of the compressor’s rotation, compared to conventional Inverters.
While conventional Inverters allow for fast cooling at start-up, Panasonic’s Inverters provide even faster cooling at start-up thanks to PAM (Pulse Amplitude Modulation). Conventional Inverters may also have rougher control of their compressor’s rotation, whereas Panasonic’s Inverters are more precise and smoother in controlling the rotation speed of the compressor.
While conventional Inverters provide fast cooling at start-up, Panasonic’s Inverter, with PAM (Pulse Amplitude Modulation), further increases the power output to accelerate the speed of the compressor, allowing it to deliver strong, cool air at a faster rate.

Once the set temperature is reached, PWM (Pulse Width Modulated Wave) controls and stabilises the rotation speed of the compressor to maintain a set temperature for constant comfort without wasting energy.
