What is Variable Speed Technology?


What is Variable Speed Technology? And what does it have to do with your Air Conditioning System? Your questions answered by A Superior Air Conditioning Company.

Long story short, air conditioning systems with variable speed technology save you time and money and keep you comfortable more efficiently.  Though the concepts of variable speeds have been applied since the 1930’s, it is only until recently, that we have been able to enjoy the full benefits of this technology in our homes.

The term “variable speed technology” is referring to the type of technology used in the fan motor inside your air handler, this is the part of your air conditioning that moves air through the ductwork in your home.

An air conditioning system that has an air handler pumping out air at variable speeds, instead of at a single speed, will cut down on the energy output, and save you money.   A large portion of your electricity bill is due to the production of compressed air, so if your system only produces what is necessary, your bill goes down.

Here are 3 main benefits of using a system with a variable speed drive:

Electrical Efficiency – Less electrical output means less energy, less waste and less money spent.

Zoning – This means you can save money by not heating or cooling the areas in your home that are not often used.

Air Quality – Air becomes more clean because of improved circulation, this allows the filters to absorb more indoor air contaminants.

Variable speed technology or “variable speed drive technology”, as it is also called has advanced dramatically in the last decade, so it is important to make sure you work with technicians that are knowledgeable with the latest and greatest in HVAC systems.
