Inverter Compressor Technology

    The inverter compressor uses precise control systems to modulate the speed of compressor motor. The compressor is specifically designed to run at different motor speeds to modulate cooling and heating output. By utilizing a technology that does not operate the compressor at full capacity all the time, efficiency and comfort levels can be optimized. These inverter compressors use a inverter control board that is designed to monitor the demands of cooling or heating and modulate the inverter compressor due to these demands.

    Many HVAC manufacturers and systems have implemented the inverter compressor design in their products. One of the most popular systems that utilizes this technology is the mini-split. The Maytag iQ Drive system uses this technology to greatly increase SEER ratings and efficiency of the system.
