I’ve no axe to grind but all the units installed when we did the big reno 8 years ago were National, now Panasonic.
All made in Malaysia units. Good units and good service by the installer.
Kept two old Samsung splits but replaced them with Panasonic Inverter units three years ago.
The Samsung units are still going OK in our other place!
Replaced a ceiling cassette unit two years ago with an Inverter unit.
The Inverters have dramatically lowered the electric consumption.
I use Globe Aircon in Miri as my contractor.
You can read my earlier post.
There is NO absolute number on the saving in electricity consumption because of all the variables but, in a “like for like” situation, the inverter unit will normally show quite a saving . . . . I think 60% is a bit of an exaggeration though.
By the way, the DC drive inverter system is also happening in fridges, washing machines, etc.
It’s depend on models actually.
But, cannot deny that inverter is expensive compare to others…
The only reason i can think of is probably they are expect in cooling? since they entitled as the cooling king.
