The Evolution of Air Conditioner Technology
Your Home Comfort Specialists Discuss Key AC Technology Improvements
The continuous advancements in air conditioning technology have led to significant improvements in the functionality and features of today’s cooling equipment. From energy consumption and sound, to size, appearance and efficiency of individual components, several aspects of the AC unit have evolved that directly address the concerns presented by earlier generations of these units.
Key Improvement in AC Technology Over the Years…
- Quieter Operation: Changes in the fan blade shape and compressor technology make sure that the loud rumbling of the AC condenser units outside or inside your home is a thing of the past. Newer units make one-twentieth of the noise as compared to older ACs. Some models come with a variable-speed fan motor, as well as a high-density foam sound blanket that subdues the compressor noises.
- Environmentally Friendly: While older refrigerant Freon R22 contained chemicals which essentially eat away the ozone layer, the introduction of Puron R410A makes modern ACs much less harsh on the environment. And being non-toxic and non-flammable, it promotes cleaner outdoor and indoor air.
- Reduced Energy Consumption: Early-generation AC units consumed alarming amounts of electricity, leading to monstrous utility bills. The energy-efficient models available today use only 1,700 watts/hour electricity consumption to cool an average-sized home vs older units that used 6,000 watts/hour. That’s a 280% decrease in electricity consumption over the years!
