Advantages and Disadvantages of DC Inverter Air Conditioners

DC Inverter Air conditioners have become necessary more thanluxury home appliances during summer be it home or office. The sun's heat becomes unbearable, and survival seems impossible without an ac. 

And a myth about DC inverter ac is so popular that it will cause you a higher electricity bill but let me clear you here:

DC inverter ac does not cause high electricity bills because they are budget-friendly. Their compressor efficiency is high, that's why they are energy-efficient. The price of an air conditioner in Pakistan is reasonable.

Many well-known brands are offering different models of DC air conditioners. They consume less energy, 3D Airflow and much more. DC air conditioners work on both modes, i.e., heat and cool.

As we all know, excessive use of anything is terrible, and everything has pros and cons.

 So as there are many advantages of ac, there are also some disadvantages. So here is a list of the pros and cons of DC air conditioners but first, let me clear you the difference between an inverter and a non-inverter ac.

Key Difference between an Inverter and a Non-Inverter AC

Inverter Air Conditioner

An inverter air conditioner compressor's motor works efficiently. It quickly warms and cools the entire room, and once it is done, the compressor motor automatically slows down to save energy. 

Non-Inverter Air Conditioner

A non-inverter air conditioner has a compressor motor that works at a fixed speed. It has no automation feature.

Key Difference

The compressor's motor is the main difference between an inverter and a non-inverter ac. The inverter ac compressor motor automatically slows down once the room reaches the desired temperature, but the non-inverter works on a fixed principle. It has no automation feature. That's why the inverter ac is called an energy-saver unit.

Now, let's move forward to our main topic. Following is the list of the advantages of an inverter ac.

  • Advantages of DC Inverter AC

  1. Consumes Less Power

The DC inverter ac consumes less power because of its compressor's motor, which works efficiently. Once the room reaches the desired temperature, it automatically slows, which results in less power consumption.

  1. Effective Cooling/Heating

The advantages of split air conditioners/DC air conditioners have effective cooling or heating. They throw air into the entire space making it cool or warmer. Heating and cooling capacity is great.

  1. Eco-Friendly

Another advantage of dc inverter air conditioners is that they have a feature of eco-friendly. This specification’s plus point is that they lessen the power required to cool the room's air. Not only that, but they also store cool air and energy to reuse it again.

  1. Start-Up On Low Voltage

It has a low-voltage start-up. These ACs can start up even at 150 Volts. Hence resulting in lessening the electricity bills.

  1. Noiseless Functioning

The dc inverter AC offers a noiseless operation. They operate in quiet mode and give you peaceful sleep. You will feel satisfied and comfortable when the ac is working.

  1. Money Saver

This DC inverter ac saves money in terms of electricity bills. Its compressor's motor works efficiently. It slows down automatically once the room gets warm and cool entirely. 

  1. Smart Features

DC Inverter ACs have intelligent features like Automatic turn on/off, 4-D Airflow, WI-FI Control, Intelligent Defrosting, and Turbo Mode.

Let me explain each feature one by one.

  • Automatic Turn On/Off

When you switch on the automatic turn-on and off feature, it will automatically set the room's temperature by adjusting the unit's fan speed depending on the room temperature. 

  • 4-D Airflow

The DC inverter ac has a 4-D airflow with a powerful fan speed. It evenly spreads the air throughout the room, making you feel comfortable. 

  • WI-FI Control

These types of ACs have WI-FI control too. You can control the temperature from anywhere on your mobile.

  • Intelligent Defrosting

Intelligent defrosting works mostly in heat mode. It is turned on when the coils are covered in ice, as the ac cannot operate when the coils are covered in ice. This mode helps to remove the ice from coils and makes it possible for ac to start working again.

  • Gold Fins

Gold fins are for to protect the AC coils from rust and they also protect the outdoor unit in high humidity areas.

  • Turbo Mode

The Split ACs have turbo mode fastest the cooling and heating of ac. It also results in saving energy. 

  1. Energy Efficient

The DC inverter ac is energy efficient because of its compressor motor. The compressor motor gets slowed down once the room temperature gets warm or cold. These type of ACs consumes less power and give better results. Hence they are energy saving.

These are some advantages of DC Inverter air conditioners. Now let's talk about some cons of having inverter technology ACs.

  • Disadvantages of DC Inverter Air Conditioner

Here are some disadvantages of DC air conditioners. 

  1. High Cost

These types of inverter technology are somehow pricey. They are costly because of the advanced features they have. But you can invest in it for long-term usage of it. 

  1. High Servicing

Another disadvantage of an inverter air conditioner is that it costs you high when maintenance is needed. Because its parts are expensive, you need to repair it from the manufacturer's service because most technicians have little experience fixing it because of its complex structure. 

  1. Refrigerant Gas

Mostly the DC inverter ACs have refrigerant gas of R-410A. When you go to a technician to repair your AC, they mostly have R-22 (CFC) based refrigerant gas. So it would be great if you tell the repairer to fill the R-410A refrigerant gas.


So you already have read the many advantages and few disadvantages of air conditioners. There is a proper way of using everything. The appropriate usage of any home appliance will provide only benefit to you.

There are different tons capacities of ACs. 1 ton, 1.5 ton, 2 tons. The price of air conditioners in Pakistan is economical.

There are many well-known brandslike Gree, Kenwood, Dawlance, TCL, Panasonic and Whirlpool that are available at Japan Electronics.
