Variable Speed Cooling

Maximum comfort for your home.

Variable speed (VS) cooling provides maximum comfort for your home. It is a technology that has been available for some time, but in the last 5 years has been truly embraced by HVAC manufacturers. In time, all air conditioners will become variable speed, allowing them to match cooling loads/requirements precisely. Like a modulating furnace, or the inverter technology used in ductless systems, a variable speed compressor communicates with the fan in your furnace as it changes speeds.  “Variable speed” refers to the speed at which the compressor outside, and fan portion of your furnace inside are operating – thereby controlling the flow and frequency of air that is generated - supplying cool or temperate air throughout your entire home. They run longer, usually at lower capacities, moving cool air to the far reaches of your home. Because of their longer runtimes and often slower speeds, variable speed ACs are amazing dehumidifiers. They are also very quiet and have SEER levels of 18+ - which will save money vs. traditional units. 

Unlike a single stage AC, a variable speed compressor can move in increments as small as 0.1% in a range from 30%-100% capacity; that’s 700 Stages!!!

When you decrease the temperature on your thermostat by half a degree, a single stage air conditioner turns on at full blast, often overcooling the space and not running long enough to dehumidify the air. In comparison, a variable speed compressor will come on at only a very low capacity (for example, approximately 30%) and the blower in your furnace will also move at a low speed. This means that temperature in your home rarely would be more than half a degree away from its set point, and humidity levels will always be within your defined parameters. For a higher delta, the VS compressor engages to make a more significant temperature adjustment and the fan increases its speed and air flow accordingly to ensure that cool air enters your rooms at an increased rate.  This air flow variability ensures even temperatures and an overall, more comfortable cooling solution. 

All Season Home Comfort

No matter how extreme the weather outside, stay comfortable inside with a furnace and air conditioner system designed to keep your family warm in winter and cool all summer.

Variable speed air conditioners

Are more effective at moving air flow throughout your home

Work in tandem with programmable thermostats, communicating furnaces and air exchangers to improve comfort levels

Master humidity challenges effectively

Use less energy

Utilize communicating technology to save you money

Variable speed air conditioners are some of the newest technology in the HVAC industry and provide significant benefits vs. traditional units.  They must be paired with a communicating furnace or air handler. and with a digitally controlled variable speed ECM blower motor. They must also be paired with a properly matched communicating control (thermostat).

The benefit of “zoning” in your home

Variable speed air conditioners work very well with homes that have zoning dampers. Since they can run at such low capacities, if only a single zone requires cooling, the AC can match the load precisely and only provided the needed cooling to that part of your home.

Master humidity challenges

When coupled with a smart thermostat, variable speed air conditioners allow you to more precisely control the amount of humidity in your home during the summer which leads to a more comfortable living environment.
