Air conditioning can have a major impact on workplaces of all sizes and niches, unlocking a vast range of benefits for your workers and even more advantages for your wider business.
In addition to making your workplace healthy, happier and humidity-free, installing a new air-conditioning system could mean great things for your pocket and the planet too. Contrary to popular belief, incorporating a new air conditioning system into your workplace could reduce the amount you spend on energy. In this post, our office air conditioning experts reveal how a new install could boost your finances and shrink your carbon footprint.
Can your air conditioning system really save energy?
In short – yes. It’s true that using the wrong product, misusing an air conditioner or failing to maintain it can all drain a huge amount of energy. However, with the right advice you can save energy, reduce bills and lower your carbon emissions.
Here at Macair, we only install quality air conditioning products from the world’s best known brands. As a result, our systems are the most energy efficient around, giving our customers access to lower carbon emissions. Our refrigerants even minimise global warming thanks to their zero ozone depleting potential (ODP).
How can I make my system even more efficient?
By adjusting your usage to the wider environment you can improve the energy efficiency of your space as well as embrace all the benefits of an air conditioned office. Altering the output of your system will ensure your cooling requirements are met throughout the day without wasting money or energy. The use of free cooling coils can also make a huge difference, with these coils taking advantage of the UK’s rather temperamental climate to harness additional energy savings.
Fine-tuning the operational temperature of your system is another worthwhile step when making your air conditioning system more efficient. This is described in an excerpt from the Carbon Trust’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning guide:
“Make sure your air conditioning doesn’t operate below 24°C. Also, make sure that you don’t have the heating and cooling systems competing with each other – it’s a waste of money. The best way to do this is to keep a temperature gap (known as a ‘deadband’) between your heating and air conditioning control temperatures.”
Maintaining your air conditioning system all year round is the key to lower energy bills. Ensuring your air conditioning system is ready for winter will keep conditions comfortable within your office whilst ensuring your unit is primed for use come the warmer spring and summer months.
Could a new installation improve savings further?
If you currently have an older air conditioning system in place, then it may be time for an upgrade. According to the latest findings, replacing a 10-year-old unit with a newer, more efficient air-conditioning system can save up to 40% on your energy bills. The very best and most energy efficient systems can save as much as 50% when compared to older models.
