Avoid Costly Air Conditioning Mistakes with your Commercial System
When it comes to commercial air conditioning, there are some things you might be doing the wrong way, and these could ruin your business. What you need to do is make a few, very simple, adjustments and your wallet and lungs will thank you. At AirCentric, we will be happy to help you make these changes. We are located in Yorkshire but are in the process of expanding our business to reach more UK customers. Here are some of the common mistakes we find people doing when it comes to air conditioning units.
Not Changing or Cleaning Your AC Filters
It is recommended that you change central office air conditioning system once every three months if you don’t keep it running continuously. However, if it is always working, consider changing it on a monthly basis. If you fail to do this, you will end up with a clogged filter that will not supply you with cool air. Such a system will raise your electricity bill since it will be overworking trying to do what it is supposed to. The good thing though is that it is not expensive to replace or repair a faulty filter and AirCentric will do your air conditioning repair at a fair price if you cannot do it yourself.
Not Having Your System Serviced Annually
AirCentric always advises its clients to ensure they have their systems serviced every year to avoid air conditioning breakdowns in the future. We carry out air conditioning maintenance to all our clients. All you have to do is contact us and we will set a date for your air con servicing.
Having Poorly Positioned Thermostat and/or Vents & Not Having a Programmable Thermostat
If your thermostat is directly facing the sun or a lamp for longer periods, this could distort its readings, thus causing it to mess with your air conditioning even when you feel like your office surroundings are cool. A misplaced thermostat cause your AC to work overtime. Another issue is blocking the AC vents with any obstruction. This could lead to low air circulation and so, you should not obstruct the vents at any time.
Unless you always remember to adjust your thermostat before closing the office for the day, you should invest in a programmable one. Such a thermostat automatically raises the temperatures of the room whenever you are not at your workplace. Today, there are even modern phone-controllable thermostats that you can invest in. Such a thermostat will save you a lot on your annual AC bill. At AirCentric, we can install a programmable thermostat at your workplace.
You are Cooling Empty Rooms
If you like to leave AC vents open in all rooms at your workplace, you will be cooling or heating spaces that do not need air conditioning. Unless every room is occupied, you shouldn’t leave all the vents open. Also, ensure you close closet doors so that such spaces don’t end up sucking up your cold air.
Not Taking Full Advantage of Fans
Fans are meant to keep cool air circulating in every room that they are in. This helps relieve your AC unit the burden of having to cool the air. For maximum benefits, ensure your ceiling fans turn anticlockwise during the summer as it promotes more air flow. Always make use of your ceiling fans.
