What to Look For

Inverter air conditioners can save you a lot of money on energy bills, as they consume a lot less energy. Some factors to consider before making a purchase are the size of the space you need to cool, the quality of the brand and efficiency. When determining the size of the space you need to cool, compare the BTU (British thermal units) to the square footage. It’s important to choose a unit that can be placed in the best position relative to your specific home and style. Units can be installed through the window or ceiling, be mounted on the wall or serve as freestanding units. According to an article on Inverter Air Conditioner Australia's website, both Fujitsu and Daikin are known to offer high-efficiency, durable units, which is important to consider when you're spending a lot of money on an air conditioner.

Common Pitfalls

The price of inverter air conditioners may cause you to stay away from making this sort of purchase. Unfortunately, it costs more money to purchase an inverter air conditioner, as this type of air conditioner runs much differently than a regular unit and is designed to maintain a steady temperature. However, the energy savings will be well worth the expense.

Where to Buy

You can go directly to the Fujitsu or Daikin websites to shop for inverter air conditioners. You can view all of your options based on the BTUs and installation choices to choose the best option for you. If you have any questions about what type of system to purchase, both companies can offer advice on which system may work best for you; contact the companies by phone using the listed numbers on their websites.


Inverter air conditioners cost more than regular air conditioners, although according to an article on Split System Air Conditioner's website, the savings is well worth the initial cost. You'll likely pay anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000, depending on the amount of space you need to cool and the brand you choose to go with. Fujitsu offers the lowest prices on inverter air conditioners, though according to Inverter Air Conditioner Australia, the quality is comparable to Daikin's, which is known as a high-quality brand.

Insider Tips

The great thing about inverter air conditioners are they're relatively quiet compared to regular units. This type of air conditioner can save you approximately 30 percent on your monthly energy bills. There's also no fluctuation in temperature — the room temperature is always steadily maintained, as an inverter air conditioner is created to quickly reach your desired temperature and maintain that temperature regularly.
