Tips on Picking the Right Commercial Air Conditioning Equipment

Posted on

As the need to improve customer experience and employee productivity becomes increasingly important in today's competitive business world, businesses are constantly looking into new ways of making their commercial buildings as comfortable as possible. Air conditioning service has and continues to play a big part in enhancing indoor comfort levels. Indeed, many of today's commercial buildings are equipped with an air conditioning system, which helps to regulate indoor temperatures by providing cooling service on hot days. If you are contemplating installing an air conditioner for your commercial application, but don't know where to start, here are some tips you should follow to ensure you get the right appliance.  

Sizing is key.

When you are out looking for an air conditioner for your commercial application, you should know that not all air conditioners are of the same size. Air conditioner sizes vary depending on the cooling requirements of every building. Air conditioners designed for use in residential buildings may not be suitable for use in commercial buildings, which may be larger in size and thus impose a greater space cooling load on the air conditioning system. 

Top of mind when you are shopping around for a commercial air conditioning unit should be ensuring that you choose a proper size unit — an undersized unit will not meet your space cooling requirements while an oversized one will only waste precious energy.

Think about air quality.

Your commercial air conditioner is not just supposed to supply cool air to your indoor space, but to sanitise the air. As standard, air conditioners come equipped with air filters, which are designed to capture dust and other airborne dirt from being circulated within a building. Before investing in an air conditioner for your commercial space cooling, find out if its air filtration system will be able to adequately clean the air in your building. 

Knowing which kind of airborne pollutants are present in your work environment is critical to ensuring that you choose a unit with the proper air filtration system. Effective small particle capture is critical to ensuring your commercial building is healthy and safe for human use.

Check energy performance.

Last but not least, you should have in mind that air conditioners use electricity, and electricity consumption costs money. Make sure you choose an energy-efficient model by checking the energy rating label found on air conditioners. Appliances with the highest star rating may be expensive to install but they are cheap to operate in the long term — the opposite may also be true, generally speaking.

As always, feel free to contact an expert AC installer if in doubt about which air conditioner you should choose for your commercial application. For more information, contact companies like MTA Australasia.
