Homeowners in Los Angeles looking to replace their air conditioners consider many variables before purchasing. Again and again, our customers cite energy efficiency as a key consideration in their decision making. Installing an energy-efficient air conditioner is not only the eco-friendly choice, it can put a serious dent in your electricity bills. In this article, we wanted to explain the latest technology for energy efficient air conditioners and what LA homeowners should investigate before buying.
Variable Speed, Multi-Speed, or Single Speed AC Units
One of the biggest differentiators in air conditioner efficiency is compressor speed. Your air conditioning compressor increases the pressure of your refrigerant, which enables the cooling process. There are three types of air conditioning compressors:
Single speed – you are probably most familiar with air conditioners that have a single speed compressor. These units turn on and off like a light switch – there is no in between.
Multi-speed – some compressors can operate at specific speeds, like a ceiling fan with low, medium, and high settings. These systems are sometimes called 2-stage or 3-stage systems.
Variable-speed – compressors that run with variable speed are like a light fixture equipped with a dimmer. Instead of having specific speed settings, a variable speed compressor varies its operation to match the needs of your home.
Air conditioners with a variable speed compressor are the most efficient systems on the market. Multi-stage or multi-speed systems fall in the next category; the more stages a multi-speed unit offers, the more efficient it will be. Single-speed air conditioning units are the least efficient of all.
