A variable-speed motor allows your HVAC system to operate at a wide range of speeds, giving you precise control over the temperature in your home.
What is a Variable-Speed Motor?
A variable-speed motor enables your HVAC system to operate at different speeds depending on the situation. This allows for greater control and efficiency over the temperature in your home, which can save you money on your energy bills, and make it easier to keep your home comfortable all year round. A variable-speed motor also helps to reduce wear and tear on other components of your HVAC system, resulting in a longer lifespan for your system.
How does a variable-speed motor work?
In an HVAC system, variable-speed motors are connected to variable frequency drives (VFDs). The VFD monitors the incoming power from your electricity provider and sends this information to the variable-speed motor, instructing it to adjust its speed accordingly. This helps ensure that your system is always operating at maximum efficiency and saving you money on energy bills.
Benefits of variable-speed motors
