ECM Electric Motors and You
Drake Mechanical specializes in all types of electric motors. From electric motors in sump pumps to electric motors in your air conditioner. Electric motors are a crucial part of our every day lives. Pumps have electric motors, your microwave has an electric motor, your freezer has an electric motor in it, that is what makes the compressor work. If you sat back and counted the electric motors in your home or office building you would be absolutely amazed at the amount of electric motors in one home or office. Sitting here at my desk I count 12 electric motors within reaching distance of my chair. In the big scheme of your home electric motors play a critical part in refrigeration and heating and cooling. All electric motors are not created equal however, you have the PSC electric motor which is a permanent split capacitor motor that uses more energy, the PSC motor is noisy and not nearly as efficient as the newer type of electric motor called the ECM motor. The electronically commutated motor or (ECM) is a significantly more energy efficient electric motor. The ECM motor is smart along with being efficient. The ECM motor is designed to function at low speed and then turn to high speed when something like your thermostat calls for heating or cooling. Running continuously keeps the air moving throughout your home at all times, the ECM motor helps prevent large temperature swings and draftiness in your home along with making your air filter and humidifier if you have one do a better job.
