Contrary to what you may think, air conditioning is just as important in the autumn and winter months as it is in summer. Use of air conditioning in winter is the ideal way to keep air quality high, especially as you’re likely to keep windows firmly. Keeping harmful bacteria, mould and other pollutants at bay, air conditioners work wonders for staff comfort and productivity.
Despite this, the cooler months are the perfect time to opt for an upgrade. There are a number of advantages to installing office air conditioning, many of which we have explored in recent posts. Thanks to the latest technology, designing and fitting a bespoke air conditioning system that works for you is easier than ever. But when is the best time to install a new system? As a leading installer of air conditioning units, we take a look at this key question.
In addition, a winter upgrade will mean that you can get in the swing of maintaining your office air conditioning system before usage levels rise during summer.
Current system compliance
Your air conditioning system will need regular maintenance to ensure it not only delivers the advantages you expect but remains fully compliant with the latest legislation. The government’s guide to air conditioning inspections for buildings provides a vital insight into why inspections and subsequent compliance are important:
“The person who controls the operation of the system, such as the building owner or manager, has statutory obligations and duties of care in the operation and maintenance of air conditioning systems. The inspections referred to in this guide are in addition to the normal activities associated with the ownership and operation of air conditioning systems. Inspection, maintenance and cleaning programmes maintain the ability of the system to provide healthy and comfortable environments for building occupants, limiting the escape of refrigerant gases and ensuring the safety of equipment.”
If your current system is poorly maintained and due for an inspection, don’t leave anything to chance. This is the perfect time to go ahead with a system upgrade and will ensure you fulfil your legal obligations as a building owner or manager.
It’s never too late
The use of air conditioning unlocks various benefits all year round. Many choose to install their air conditioning system during building construction and this does have its advantages. However, it’s never too late to improve your work environment.
