How Variable Speed Compressors Save Money & Increase Efficiency

We could all stand to save a little money, especially when it comes to cooling our homes during the blazing Arkansas summers. What if we told you there was a way you could save money while also increasing the efficiency of your HVAC system? Installing a Variable Speed Compressor in your home is a great way to reduce costs and energy use. Learn more about this magical money-saving and efficient tool below!


A Variable Compressor & You

So, first off, what even is a variable compressor?

It’s a part of your HVAC system. You might not have guessed it, but most HVAC units are set up to cool or heat your home like it is the hottest or coolest part of the day, whether the sun is out or not! That means there are no in-between settings, and your HVAC system runs on full blast when it is on. As you can imagine, the air conditioning you’re not able to benefit from will still increase your energy consumption and raise your bills.

The variable-speed compressor is a new technology that could fix all of this! With adjustable speed technology, the compressor signals the thermostat and blower motor to adjust the amount of air your system uses to match the temperature outside and combat the humidity in your house. That way, you are only using the energy that you need!

Since the energy consumed by your HVAC makes up about 40% of your utility bill, you will start to see the savings from your variable speed compressor every month!


Long-term Savings

Another great thing about installing a variable speed compressor is its ability to distribute the cold or warm air throughout your home evenly. This is especially great if there are areas of your house that are usually colder or warmer than others. With a variable speed compressor, you'll be able to enjoy a home that's more accurately cooled and warmed.

Adding a variable speed compressor means that many parts in your HVAC system will need to be replaced completely. This technology could also be a great investment in the long run because it will prolong the life of your HVAC system.

Running at 100% capacity at all times is detrimental to your system and, over time, causes it to break down more quickly. Using a variable-speed compressor and running it on longer and lower settings will allow your HVAC to prevent overwork and last longer. 

Basically, a variable speed compressor allows you to maximize your cooling power and limit the amount of work your AC has to perform. A slower, more efficient system will always work better and longer than one that runs in overdrive constantly.
