If you have not purchased an air conditioning unit before, there are a wide range of systems on the market that suit different work spaces. Before you decide on a suitable unit for you, why not take a look at the options available to help you make a choice that is more appropriate for your specific environment? We have experience in the installation and servicing process, so can talk you through each system and its benefits helping you make a more informed decision.
Central air conditioner
The most popular type of HVAC unit in properties today is central air conditioning. This involves an outside unit mounted to the side of your building, which draws in hot air and cools it down using a refrigerant. It is then distributed throughout by being pumped through a series of vents that have been installed in the walls and under the floor. This type of system requires extensive planning with a qualified engineer to fit the unit and ensure the sizing of vents is suitable for the building.
Ductless, mini-split air conditioner
If your premises have recently had renovation work carried out, you may wish to opt for a mini-split air conditioning system. This operates in a similar way to a central unit in that you still have an outdoor system to take in air, however instead of vents, an indoor unit attached to the wall will distribute cold air. You may find this more beneficial to a standard central air conditioning system as you can set the temperature for each area, so if you want a specific part of your workplace cooled, you have the option to adjust your unit accordingly.
Window air conditioner
As you may be able to guess by their name, this style of unit is fitted to the window of each room. They operate by taking in warm air and pumping cold air back in. This style of system is suitable for a single room and is ideal if you are looking for something for a smaller space, due to it being less powerful than a central air conditioner.
Portable air Conditioner
A similar system to window units, portable air conditioners offer practicality in that they are compact and can be moved from one room to the next to keep you cool in the warmer months. These systems function by taking on warmer air from the room, cooling it internally, then release it back out to maintain a cooler temperature. Warm air is released back outside your building by an exhaust hose installed in a window.
Evaporative air Conditioner
These systems are less common but operate in a completely different way that could lead to you saving on energy costs. There is no refrigerant involved in the process evaporative systems use to cool a room. They take in warmer air and pass it through moisture pads, cooling it and circulating it by means of a fan. This simple technology may be a more cost-effective way to cool your space.
