Installing Air Conditioning in Warehouses
Maintaining a comfortable environment is vital in all places of work, including particularly large or drafty spaces such as warehouses, production lines, storage facilities, and depos. These are spaces which can become difficult to work in during both the warmest and coldest months of the year.
UK guidelines suggest that employees should be in an environment of a comfortable temperature of at least 16ºC (13 ºC if they are participating in manual labour). This ensures that their health is not affected by extreme heat or cold and that employee morale and productivity remains good.
In some cases, radical temperatures can also have an affect on equipment or products, causing them to become less efficient or to degrade more quickly. Poor ventilation may also cause problems such as interior condensation, which may damage your building over time.
Why Warehouse air Conditioning?
Keeping these standards can be difficult in large spaces as it can make temperature regulation challenging, particularly if your equipment also produces heat or if parts of your building are open to the elements.
Installing a carefully designed system of air conditioning units in your warehouse is one way to regulate the temperature and air flow within your building. Many HVAC systems can both cool and heat your property, depending on need, as well as providing ventilation.
Air Conditioning Systems for Warehouses
Total Environmental Kooling are experienced in surveying buildings and designing effective air conditioning solutions which meet the needs of commercial and industrial clients. These systems are designed to cause minimal noise so as not to disturb the working day, and our installations are carried out efficiently and discretely by our in-house engineers, who all hold CSCS Skill Cards and have F-Gas certification.
We are also approved Daikin D1+ installers, enabling us to offer a 7 year warranty on Daikin and LG products.
Some common air con unit solutions in warehouses or factories include:
Cassette type air con
These systems work particularly quietly and can be mounted on the ceiling so as to not take up floor space. They function similarly to most air conditioners you may come across, moving air through a refrigerant and a condenser before dispersing it.
This type of air conditioning can often be installed with minimal inconvenience or adjustment to the existing building, as long as the space and type of ceiling permits. They are also often more powerful than wall-fitted units and come in types with “four way” blow, which can distribute cold air to each corner of a room.
Ducted Air Conditioning Units
Ducted air conditioning systems are often concealed either under the floor or over a suspended ceiling. Here, an exterior unit takes in and expels air from outside, passes it through a central cooling unit, and the air travels through ducts to be distributed in vents in different areas or rooms. These can come with high power outputs and work well with air conditioning designs which involve zoning.
This separates areas and determines which can be allowed to be hotter or cooler than other areas of the building – for example, a production line may need to be a different temperature than storage areas. This improves the overall efficiency of the system while still creating the desired result of the HVAC system. SMART systems can take this to an even further level.
