First, let’s look at the terminology. The inverter air conditioner is a modified version of the classic air conditioner.
The classic air conditioner works on a simple principle: it cools the air to a set temperature, then turns off. If the air temperature rises above the set point, the air conditioner will automatically turn on and cool the room, then again it will turn off. This process is cyclical.
