Having effective and energy efficient air conditioning in your office can help to optimise productivity and ensure that your staff and customers are kept comfortable. But, badly planned or out-dated air conditioning systems can quickly become a huge drain on your finances and become anything but energy efficient.
Even though older air conditioning can use a large amount of energy, the latest air conditioning equipment is highly efficient with features included such as temperature control, for example, which makes sure that your heating and cooling systems are not competing with each other. You could also introduce variable speed drives to vary the output of your air conditioning system to meet your needs throughout the day more efficiently.
However you keep your air conditioning energy efficient, there are numerous further benefits of having it up and running in your office. These include:
Providing constant and comfortable temperatures
A boiling hot office in summer, or one that is freezing cold in winter, will not encourage your staff to work well, and could even deter customers or clients from visiting you. An energy efficient air conditioning system will have the capability to maintain a consistent temperature all-year round, keeping you cool in the summer and cosy during the winter, regardless of the temperature outside.
Improving the air quality
Working close to other people makes it easy for coughs, colds and other nasty germs to pass easily from person to person. This in turn can lead to an increase in absenteeism and a office full of unhappy and off-colour employees. An energy-efficient air conditioning unit will come complete with filters that purify the air and reduce the number of bacteria, dust particles, odours, and potential allergens buzzing around your office at any one time.
Keeping your equipment cool
Modern technology and computerised equipment can generate a lot of heat. Modern day air conditioning systems can help to remove the excess heat and humidity produced by hard working machinery, meaning that the technology that is vital to your business remains protected at all times.
Improving your productivity
Did you know that your employees could be spending as much as 30 minutes a day not working due to uncomfortable office temperatures? If the office is too hot or too cold it detracts from the job at hand, making your workforce feel demotivated. Research suggests that a temperature of 21-23 degrees Celsius is best for maximising office worker productivity, and an energy-efficient air conditioning system can keep this a constant for you.
Lowering your carbon footprint
You may think that an air conditioning system will be an expensive way to burn through energy, but in reality, the vast majority of modern commercial air conditioning systems are incredibly energy efficient. They can cost you less than you think to run, and will use less energy than you would expect, while providing reliable and consistent air temperature and improved air quality.
