What Common Problems Does it Solve?

Imagine if your car only had one speed; it would either go 100mph or it would be completely stopped. Obviously, this doesn’t make any sense because different speeds are appropriate for different conditions. The same holds true for your air conditioner’s fan. There are times when the fan’s maximum speed is required, and other times when it could benefit from running at a slower speed. This option wasn’t available until the advent of variable speed air conditioners. Today we’re going to talk about what a variable speed air conditioner is and the many common problems it can solve in your Coachella Valley home!

What is a variable speed air conditioner?

When we talk about variable speed air conditioners, “variable speed” refers to the fan motor inside of the system. With a conventional air conditioner, the fan only runs at a single speed; it’s either 100 percent on or 100 off.

The fan motor inside of a variable speed air conditioner, on the other hand, is able to run at many different speeds depending on your system’s airflow requirements at any given time. When there is less of a demand for air, the motor spins at a lower speed. When there is a high demand for air, the motor spins at a much higher speed.

What common problems does a variable speed air conditioner help solve?

If you have any questions about a variable speed air conditioner, or if you’d like a cooling system serviced or installed in your home, contact Hydes, your Indio, CA, air conditioner installation and repair contractor.
