If you’re shopping for a new AC system in Fort Myers, Florida, you may have heard of variable-speed AC systems. Though most homes use a single-stage or two-stage system, variable-speed air conditioners have many benefits for homeowners. Consider these four benefits of variable-speed AC systems.
A variable-speed air conditioner automatically varies its operating speed, allowing it to run at percentages of its full capacity. For most homeowners, the system will rarely need to run at full capacity. Conventional AC systems use on/off cycles to maintain a specific temperature, but a variable-speed AC system is equipped to run for a long period at a lower capacity without going on and off, which is more efficient.
Because of the variable-speed AC’s ability to run for long periods, it can improve home comfort by removing more humidity from the air than regular AC units. This keeps your home comfortable without dropping its temperature to undesirably low levels. The long run time also improves air circulation and keeps the temperature constant and comfortable throughout your home.
Better Air Quality
The improved air circulation and decreased humidity with a variable-speed AC unit can lead to better indoor air quality. Air circulation prevents the accumulation of dust mites and creates air conditions that aren’t ideal for insects or microbes. It cycles more air through the ducts, as well, which filters out air contaminants to keep your air healthier.
Though air conditioning on a scorching day is a blessing, some AC units can be noisy. However, variable-speed AC units operate at partial capacities, so they have lower decibel levels than other AC units. You can have both air conditioning and serenity.
