Choosing the right air conditioning is important. You want to ensure that all of your employees feel the benefit; so you don’t have half of your employees baking in the office while the others enjoy the perfect ambient temperature. With this in mind, you will need to carefully consider the size, positioning and breadth of your air conditioning so that it best suits your business needs.
In this blog, we take a closer look at the different types of industrial air con units you can purchase, their properties, and the things to consider before investing in an air con unit for your office.
Factors to Consider Before Buying Industrial Air Conditioning
There are many elements involved in making a decision about your industrial air conditioning, besides the different types of air conditioning systems. Here are some other elements to consider which may impact their performance;
The Size of Your Space
If you’re working with a small space, you won’t need a large unit as this will be a waste of electricity. In the same vein, if you own a big warehouse or garage and are looking for air con options, then a larger unit, which doesn’t have to run for long periods of time for you to notice any difference, will be more energy efficient.
The location of your air con unit
Do you want your office air con system to be hidden from sight? After all, some air con units can make the space look unattractive, especially if clients often visit.
This is why we offer different types of air conditioning, such as ceiling-mounted units, so you can pick the one that best suits your workplace and surroundings.
A key consideration for all businesses looking to save money is how energy efficient their systems are. Energy-efficient units not only help the planet but also your bottom line, so we’d always recommend that you take your time to pick an air conditioning system and get the advice and support you need.
An example is our Fujitsu range, most of which is A/A rated and registered with the Energy Technology List. Speak to us if you’d like to learn more about this feature & what to look for in your air conditioning system.
But like every business, not every air conditioner is the same, so how do you find the right match?
Air Con Types
Ceiling Cassette Units
The ceiling cassette unit is an effective unit as it is suspended on the ceiling, often out of sight and out of mind so as not to take up any valuable wall or floor space. A ceiling cassette unit is also much more energy efficient and quieter as the condenser is located outside of the building.
These types of units are perfect for larger, open plan spaces. Ceiling-mounted units are also a good option for more unconventionally designed layouts because they can easily – and evenly – cool the air from above. Due to their location, they can fit virtually anywhere, so you don’t need to worry about running out of essential space.
The fact that the condenser is outside of the building means that a professional needs to install the unit, which consists of running lines between the condenser and indoor unit, and the initial costs may be higher as a result. It is important to work with a registered fitter to make sure the unit is installed correctly and in the optimum place for efficiency, so it doesn’t work out more costly to run in the long term. Our Fujitsu and Media ceiling cassette air conditioning units are quiet and provide a central location from which cool air is dispersed. They’re also highly efficient because they use DC Inverter Control, a system that minimises electricity loss in order to decrease energy consumption.
Wall Mounted Units
Wall mounted units are an affordable option compared to other units, available in a wide variety of designs and choices to best suit your office needs. It is conveniently placed on a wall, which means additional safety and easy maintenance as the unit remains accessible. If your workplace is small or has a lot of furniture or equipment on the floor, installing the unit on the wall will help maximise floor space.
These units also add a sleek look to the space, so offices can greatly benefit from them. We have many elegant and compact designs available, so that you don’t have to worry about a clunky machine cluttering your space.
