There’s nothing more important than ensuring employees have a comfortable environment in which to work. A big part of this is the office heating and cooling. Many businesses and offices nowadays use air conditioning and the latest installations are highly efficient and help keep the temperature at just the right level.
If you have an older air conditioning system in place at the moment, you may be wondering if it’s worth your while upgrading to a newer installation.
Things to consider before upgrading your air conditioning
· Which air conditioning units need upgrading? You may need to replace parts or all of your air conditioning system. For instance, R22 refrigerant in your air conditioning is now a banned substance so it’s probably time to replace these units, as any breakdowns or repairs required will not be possible if refrigerant needs replacing as part of the process.
· Is your air conditioning efficient? It might be that your AC is no longer as efficient as it used to be. This happens with older systems or ones that haven’t been properly maintained. Upgrading will not only reduce your utility costs but give you greater control over the temperature.
· Is it performing as expected? The time that most businesses find out about poor performing AC is during the summer, particularly when there’s a hot spell. If your air conditioning is having trouble keeping up and your employees are uncomfortably warm, it may be time to upgrade.
· Do you want more powerful air conditioning? Some offices don’t have the right air conditioning installed in the first place. If you have a large open area, this could mean that your AC simply isn’t powerful enough. Alternatively, if you need to maintain different temperatures in different parts of the building, a zoned air conditioning unit may be more suitable for your requirements.
There are a number of reasons why upgrading to a new air conditioning system is a good idea. First of all, it should deliver real cost savings on your utilities over the long term. The latest installations are also very environmentally friendly, so you can work to reduce your carbon footprint. An upgrade will give you better control over indoor temperatures and provide an environment that your staff and visitors can feel comfortable in. This in turn will improve employee productivity for your business. At least in the short term, it may also decrease maintenance appointments and can cost you less in replacing parts and emergency repairs.
