    I had an inverter split level and had problems with it and finally replaced it with a same model - non-inverter model, at the store owner's suggestion. No problems since and not a big spike in Noreco cost. I only run it from 8pm to midnight.

    I saw you mention that before. Did he give you a reason why? @Dave_Hounddriver has a similar sounding issue and has explained it but I am still confused as I thought inverter-type was an upgrade just as a higher SEER rating (efficiency) would always be an upgrade. I can hear my fan slow down occasionally, especially when power tools are being used in construction next door so an inverter's ability to cope with fluctuating power seems the choice for me.

    I believe it is. There are times when I do not believe it is a required or cost-effective upgrade. (Such as in poorly insulated areas)
    Very logical. It probably is the choice for you.

    I'm not too mechanically inclined and didn't understand his explanation and not sure I would believe the owner anyway who suggested I replace the inverter model. They were happy to sell me the more expensive inverter model in the first place.

    If you see any "Chigo" units I would recommend those. Those things hold up quite well in the brutal heat of Afghanistan and Iraq (40-55°C). Everyone here talks poo about them but they don't realize just how much abuse they actually take (and that they are on 24/7 for years) before they actually break.
