Air Conditioning For the Office By Tracey Clancy
If you install the right type of air conditioning in an office it will provide a pleasant atmosphere for those working it in. Installing the right sort of air conditioning for the office can reduce how much moisture builds up and which can make working in a room very hard. What you will soon discover is that even when the weather is very hot outside the temperature inside the office will be one that won't affect yours or your staff's productivity levels.
When considering buying air conditioning for the office there are certain factors that have to be taken into consideration before you buy. As well as looking at the size of the room you also have to factor in how many windows it has and how many people will be using the room throughout the day.
As well as the factors we have mentioned above there is certain other information that you should be aware of when it comes to air conditioning units. The more information you arm yourself with regarding such units then the better chance you have of selecting a system that is right for your office. Below we look at some of the kinds of things you should be aware of.
1. What Is Its British Thermal Unit Rating? - This is what tells you how much heat the air conditioning unit can effectively remove from a room. A higher rating means more heat will be removed and you will need to choose a BTU rating that can cope with the size of the room in which it has been situated. Certainly in a large room a low rated unit won't be able to effectively cool the air enough to make the atmosphere pleasant for people to work in.
2. What EER Number Has The Air Conditioning Got? - This is something that you need to look at closely as this is what will tell you how much energy is needed to power the unit to work effectively. It is best that you go for those air conditioning units which come with a high EER (energy efficiency ratio) number on them as these will use far less energy to power them. But be aware that the higher the EER number the more expensive the unit will be. For use in an office the air conditioning unit should have an EER number of between 8 and 11.5.
3. How Is The Temperature Controlled? - Most air conditioning units today have a heat sensor thermostat installed which then adjusts the temperature of the air as it enters into the unit automatically using either a manual or programmable control. It is best if you go for those thermostats in air conditioning units that have a variable speed fan attached as this further helps to cool air entering and exiting the unit more efficiently. Also you should consider investing a little extra in your air conditioning for the office by including features such as a remote control, a timer and may be digital temperature readout.
4. Is It Easy To Maintain? - You need to get air conditioning for the office where the filters inside it can be easily removed to either be cleaned or replaced. Then this will help to ensure that when working the unit will do so at its optimum levels.
5. How Is Air Expelled From The Unit? - You need to get an air conditioning unit for the office which can expel air quickly but with little noise into a room. The best types of air conditioning for the office units to choose are those which have a variable speed fan fitted and which work in conjunction with the adjustable thermostat unit. Plus make sure that the louvers on the unit in the room move not just from side to side but also up and down.
