With summer fast approaching, your working environment will soon be hit with the oppressive, humid temperatures of summer. Well, that may have been a slight exaggeration, because, as anyone who has spent a summer in Britain knows – you just can’t predict the weather!


Especially in warmer seasons, you’ll find that you and your employees rely on your air conditioning systems far more than normal, and it’s time to get clued up! As specialists of cold and warm air heating units – we’ve put together this short guide to making sure you get the best from your air con unit, and once you’ve heard this top cooling secrets – you’ll be prepared for the British summer, whatever it brings! Enjoy.

Size Matters

Sometimes, in the world of air cooling and heating, bigger doesn’t always mean better, and this is something you should always consider when choosing a system to suit your work place. A properly sized air conditioner should always maintain a 20degree difference between the outside temp and that of your interior, and most of the cooling process is dehumidification. When a system is not sized properly to suit the use it is intended for, the space will not cool down and remain humid, boasting a breeding ground for allergens and mould.

Freon Lasts Forever

Freon is the cooling agent that is used in most air conditioning systems, and if the title didn’t give it away – it lasts forever! So, if you’ve been worrying that your AC unit is failing because the Freon has run out – the system is probably in desperate need of a repair !

Replace It Right

When it comes to cooling down your workplace during the summer, there’s one golden rule to follow, and that is ‘do it right the first time.’ Although it may be tempting to opt for a less-effective conditioning system, or cut corners in terms of cost – it will only cause you more serious issues in the long run. Whether buying new or being repaired, it is always best to choose a professional model from a respected supplier, for product cover and guaranteed quality.

Location, Location, Location

Even  with a properly sized AC unit, there are other factors that may affect your employee’s ability to work well. Optimise your air conditioner’s performance by locating it in a cool, and shaded place – ideally out of direct sunlight. It should also have unimpeded airflow, so always make sure that there is nothing it it’s direct path of sufficient function.
