As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. So making smart decisions about your home or business’ heating and air conditioning system can have a big effect on your utility bills — and your comfort.
Where Does My Money Go?
If your average annual utilities are $4,200, Fujitsu can save you $1,050 annually or $10,500 in 10 yrs!*
*Savings may vary based on model selected, hours of operation and geographical location. Example given based on 26-SEER system versus 13-SEER system.
How Does a Mini-Split Work?
What is a Mini-Split?
Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to pump refrigerant and transfer heat from one space to another. When we transfer heat from within our home to the outdoors, we call it “air conditioning”. Conversely, when we transfer heat from the outdoors to within the home, we call it a “heat-pump”.
What is an Inverter?
Inverter components allow an outdoor unit to vary its speed and output to match your comfort needs.
- More Heat at lower outdoor temperatures
- Lower RPMs = quieter operation
- Desired temperature in half the time
- Up to 30% more efficient
- Stable temperature
The built-in Inverter controls the speed of the compressor. The Inverter Power Module uses electrical components to switch and chop created DC to make simulated AC at the required frequency and voltage that drives the compressor. Compared to the common on/off controlled compressor, the inverter driven compressor runs at the proper revolution to provide the required capacity. When maximum capacity isn’t needed, compressor revolution and power decreases, increasing system efficiency. “Soft start” reduces the instantaneous peak demand associated with AC equipment starts. The compressor starts at minimum speed, avoiding high inrush current associated with standard compressors.
