Why is it improtant to have air conditioning in an office
Keeping your employees cool in the summer and warm in the winter is the ideal way to keep them motivated. There is nothing worse than trying to work in a hot and sweaty office!
It is important to have air-conditioning systems within offices, since workers will be inside the office for a long periods of time throughout the day.
There are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration when installing air conditioners in an office. It’s vital to consider the shape and layout of an office so that it ensures that there is an even air flow achieved in every room.
We always ensure that we design and install the system to suit the exact requirements of your office, guaranteeing that all workers and visitors feel comfortable.
Most common air conditioning units for an office
Wall-mounted air conditioners
They are the most common air conditioning units used in offices. They are the most cost-effective option. A single unit would be ideal for cooling a 1-6 person office and for larger office spaces you would require multiple wall units strategically placed so the entire room enjoys the full benefit of the air flow.
Ceiling-mounted ‘cassette’ units
They are very popular in modern offices. Although they are slightly more expensive than wall units, ceiling ‘cassettes’ are almost entirely hidden within a suspended ceiling and are therefore more discreet and aesthetically pleasing. They also have the advantage of providing four-way airflow so they are ideal for large offices where multiple areas must receive balanced cooling
Ducted air conditioning systems
This is another popular option for an office. They are usually the most expensive option; however, they are also the most aesthetically pleasing as the duct-work and internal units are hidden entirely within a suspended ceiling with only small grilles remaining visible.
What can air conditioning do for your office?
- Improved health of employees
An air conditioner works to remove dust and pathogens, improving the quality of air in your working environment. This benefits employees and results in fewer sick days with increased productivity in the workplace.
- Comfortable working environment
Investing in an air conditioner for your workplace will also improve the temperature of your working environment and lead to happier members of staff. Many are unaware that apart from cooling down, an air conditioner can warm up a space making it useful in both winter and summer. This will help you keep a consistent temperature to give your employees the maximum comfort they need to concentrate.
- Lower cooling and heating costs
Having an air conditioner for your business will result in long-term savings when the workplace gets hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter. Air conditioners tend to do a better job than ordinary fans and heaters at heating or cooling an environment, so you might only need one air conditioner to cool down the whole workplace whereas you would need to utilise a couple of fans or heaters to achieve the same temperature. This get can very costly if you would like to keep your staff happy and comfortable.
- Protecting your equipment
Getting the temperature correct in your workplace can be important for maintaining good-working equipment. You wouldn’t want your computer server overheating and shutting off midday, costing you money and time. By having control of the temperature you can eliminate any excess heat from the surrounding air to keep the whole workplace functioning well.
- Inviting for customers
If you deal with customers in person, having a temperature-controlled environment is vital to keeping your clients happy. First impressions matter, so you wouldn’t want them to feel like they just walked into a sauna the first time they step inside your business. Regulating the temperature of your workplace can help you improve your customer’s first impression and allow you to grow in the future.
