Why buy a refrigerator with an inverter compressor

An inverter compressor fridge has several advantages that will simplify your life.

If you’re in the market for a new refrigerator, you might have come across the term “inverter compressor”. It sounds rather technical, but what is it exactly and do you actually need it?

A compressor is the part of the fridge that converts the refrigerant from gas to liquid. It operates according to the temperature in the fridge: runs at full speed when it needs cooling down and stops completely when the temperature is low enough. An inverter compressor, however, starts slowly, then increases it speed and as the desired temperature is reached, decreases it again just enough to maintain the temperature.

Compared to a regular compressor, an inverter compressor has several benefits:

  • Energy efficiency. As opposed to a regular compressor, the inverter compressor runs more consistently and at controlled speeds, which means it uses significantly less energy.
  • Durability. Compressors experience the most wear and tear during the start up period. Inverter compressors start up slowly, thereby reducing a chance of failure.
  • Freshness. Because the inverter compressor doesn’t stop completely, only slows down, the temperature in the refrigerator is more constant, which means better storage conditions for your food.
  • Quiet operation. Due to its constant operation an inverter compressor also produces less noise.

All things considered, buying a refrigerator with the inverter compressor, like for example the Gorenje NRS9181VXB that also comes with the NoFrost function and a water dispenser, can turn out to be a more cost effective and life simplifying choice.


Side by side fridge freezers are the ultimate choice for anyone who wants a convenient and efficient way to preserve the freshness of their food.
