In the past, air conditioners were known for their emission emitting, planet damaging qualities. Use of air conditioning has even been blamed for global warming, and governments across the globe are now heavily regulating the use of the hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) used in air conditioners and refrigerators as a result. As technology evolves, a new generation of eco-friendly air conditioners are coming to the forefront.
Now your choice of air conditioner could actually help the planet, as well as unlock a range of hidden advantages. These include lower energy bills, improved employee health, and enhanced workplace productivity. As a leading installer of office air conditioners, we are proud to fit and maintain high quality products from the world’s most renowned manufacturers. We work with Daikin, Mitsubishi, and Toshiba to ensure the air conditioners we install can help our customers reap a number of rewards. In this blog post, we take a closer look at how the latest air conditioning technology is transforming our office spaces and helping the planet at the same time.
They’re getting smaller
When it comes to choosing the right air conditioning unit for your office space, size really does matter. With an undersized unit, under-performance usually follows, meaning your unit will fail to create a cool and comfortable work environment. Modern day air conditioners are bucking this trend, delivering more compact appliances that deliver huge benefits.
Working with the weather
Contrary to popular belief, the use of your air conditioning is beneficial all year round. We recently wrote a blog post on why your air conditioning system is just as important in winter, and with the latest technology, its use from season to season is made even more efficient. The most up-to-date eco-friendly air conditioners feature two-stage compressors to ensure less air is compressed on cool days and more air is compressed when weather conditions are a little warmer. These two-stage compressors do all this and save energy.
The latest models improve efficiency further by calling on different components for cooling and others for heating. Programmable thermostats also give you the means to adapt your cooling and heating from season to season, providing an affordable route to a cooler and greener office space.
Don’t forget the maintenance!
Keep your air conditioner as energy efficient as it was the day it was installed by getting professionals like us to complete regular maintenance and repairs on your system. Periodic maintenance will prevent costly, emergency repair and keep the filters clean to unlock further eco-friendly advantages, as explained here by Energy.gov:
The most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to routinely replace or clean its filters. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency significantly. With normal airflow obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity. Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.
