Variable Speed Compressors in Northwest Flordia

All About Variable Speed Compressors

When it comes to your home’s heating and cooling system, you can trust us to recommend the best units for your individual needs. Variable Speed Compressors are a great technology because they keep your home cool and comfortable in the summer and can even regulate your home’s humidity, making them the most efficient choice on the market.

AccuComfort™ Compressors avoid the peaks and valleys of conventional systems by varying its output in 1/10 of 1% increments in order to stay within a 1/2 degree of its set temperature. The result is ultimate comfort and a quietly powerful way to satisfy your idea of home sweet home.

lowering your carbon footprint

The Department of Energy states that over half of energy usage in homes is attributed towards heating and cooling the home. Variable speed compressors greatly reduce your home’s energy consumption by not cycling off completely but instead keeping the temperature within one degree of your desired temperature.

Since the system doesn’t completely power off and then back on, your home stays more comfortable and your energy bills get lower. From the graphic below, you can see that it takes more than 8X the energy for a system to start and stop. Most systems can start/ stop up to 72 times per day during the hottest Florida days. That’s a lot of wasted energy!
