If you are considering an AC unit for your office, you will see benefits from one of these systems all year round, but you may be unsure which size is most suitable for your needs. In order to decide which size of air conditioning unit is most suited to your workplace, you will want to consider the size and layout of your office space, as well as working out the required cooling capacity. There are also various types of systems that work in different ways, so you will want to consider which is most suitable for the number of employees in your office and determine the benefits each type would have. Allow us to talk you through these points in more detail…
Office size and layout
The size of your office is a key element in choosing a suitable air conditioning unit, as this will have a significant impact on which size system is most suited to keeping it a constant temperature. If your office is open plan and has wide dimensions, you may need a larger system to circulate the air and cool your room more effectively. Or you may decide to place multiple smaller wall mounted units at different ends of the space to maintain the same temperature throughout. You will also want to consider other areas of your office such as the corridors or reception areas and decide if these areas need to be catered for. If you want the best result, it is essential you choose the right size air conditioner.
When choosing the right air conditioning unit for your office, you may want to look at the cooling capacity of each option. This is measured in BTUs (British Thermal Units). Depending on the dimensions of the room and the amount of heat generated by people and computers or other technology, you can calculate the BTU rating required for your air conditioning unit to cool the space. As a general rule, office spaces of around 36 square metres tend to require a unit with approximately 15000 BTUs of cooling capacity.
Types of unit
Before you buy an air conditioner for your office space, you will want to look at the different types of air con available and assess their suitability for the layout of your building. The types of air conditioning unit include split systems, which involves taking in air through an outdoor system which cools the air and pumps it into the house through an indoor unit. Multi split systems operate in the same way, but the cool air is distributed to multiple different indoor units, which is well suited to larger offices. You may also want to consider a portable air conditioner, which won’t cool larger spaces as effectively, but can be moved from room to room depending on the needs of employees. Why not take the time to look at the different types of system in more detail before making your decision?
