Can You Increase HVAC Frequency?

Serving Families Throughout Dallas

Who wouldn't like to have a better working air conditioner to keep you cool in the summer? Upgrading your HVAC’s frequency can not only keep your house cooler but also save you money on your energy bill. How is it possible? By installing control mechanisms calledvariable frequency drives, or VFDs for short.

What Are VFDs?

VFDs are electronic controllers that can directly alter the speed of your HVAC system's alternating current (AC) motors. These motors contribute to the majority of your bill, so improving their efficiency with VFDs can reduce your energy consumption and save you money.

How VFDs Work

Most HVAC systems have a fixed frequency and voltage rate. This maintains a constant flow of electricity and ensures that the system always operates smoothly. VFDs can intercept the electric current traveling to your system, making its AC motors run faster for short periods of time.

VFDs can also help adjust electricity input to match the demands of the system. If your system's demand changes, VFDs can adjust the electrical current and ensure that your HVAC doesn't consume more energy than it has to.

A VFD controls the output of your HVAC by adjusting the speed of its torque motor. When this motor runs slower, power use drops to meet the demands of the space. This adjustment saves you money by reducing your energy consumption without sacrificing your family's comfort.
