The health and well-being of your workers is important, as is the productivity and efficiency of your workforce. Your office air conditioning plays a vital role in creating a cool, comfortable working environment for your employees to excel in.
Our experienced engineers assist clients in a variety of sectors in reaping the rewards of quality systems. For those who currently have an office air conditioning system in place, knowing when to upgrade to a newer unit can be tricky.
Read on to discover the five signs that say it’s time to upgrade your office’s air conditioning.
1. Your air conditioner is old
If you’ve had your office air conditioning unit installed for more than 10 years, your system may be too old to provide the optimum benefits it once promised. Even with regular maintenance, air conditioning units have a shelf life. Upgrading to a newer model will provide the technology and features you need to improve efficiency and provide consistent cooling.
2. Your energy bills are sky high
One of the greatest concerns of investing in an air conditioning system is the associated running costs. Whilst the latest air conditioning technology promises ultra-high efficiency, your older unit could be pushing up your bills. Keeping office running costs low is integral to the success of any business. After all, the less you spend, the more profit you can realise. Swapping your existing air conditioner for a high efficiency model will ensure you’re doing all you can to keep energy costs to a minimum.
3. Your unit needs frequent repair
Regular maintenance and inspections are vital aspects of upkeep when you own an office air conditioner. If your unit needs more frequent repairs however, the cost and downtime could affect your business directly.
We install air conditioning products from leading manufacturers, including Daikin. Here’s what they had to say about what to expect in regards to the frequency of air conditioning repairs:
“Occasionally, you may need an extra service or repair. However, if your air conditioning system is constantly in need of mending and repairing, multiple times per year, then you may have to call time on this unit – replacing your air conditioner may simply be the more economical and efficient option. Usually, you can factor in one major repair or part replacement. However, if serious repairs occur later in the unit’s life, they serve as a warning of future issues. If your unit needs a complex repair after the warranty expires, that’s a sure sign to start shopping around for a new unit instead of pouring money into an old one with a limited shelf life.”
4. Your air conditioner is leaking
Refrigerant leaks are a common air conditioner problem. Without urgent repair, refrigerant leaks can affect the performance and efficiency of your wider unit, as well as harm your workers and the environment. Ensuring the health of your workplace and determining whether a replacement is needed is easy with our work environment health check.
If your air conditioning unit leaks regularly, replacement may be a better option to ensure reliability and efficiency for years to come.
5. Your air con simply isn’t cool enough
Inconsistent cooling shouldn’t be an accepted state of affairs. Your air conditioner’s cooling capabilities are the primary reason why you had it installed in the first place, and if it doesn’t deliver, it may be time to upgrade. If your cooling experience is spotty, uneven, or simply lacking, your air conditioner may be past its prime. If your unit is too noisy, you may also want to consider replacement.
