Most modern buildings and places of work are equipped with reasonably performing air conditioning units which form a part of a buildings wider heating system. As one of the North West’s leading providers of both integrated and planned maintenance, we help many companies with air conditioning installation, repair and maintenance. There has been endless research highlighting the negative effects of heat on human performance and this has been well documented in the workplace especially. Air conditioning maintenance is an important part of keeping productivity up and employee comfort at a healthy level. In our opinion, air conditioning maintenance is of critical importance and not something that should take a backseat priority for any organisation or business. These are our main reasons:
A Regularly Serviced Air Conditioner Operates Efficiently
Regularly neglecting the well being of your air conditioning system could cost you a huge amount of money in the long run. This is because certain faults, blockages and other technical issues could be inhibiting the unit’s ability to operate at its full potential whilst still using the same amount of energy. We have dealt with air conditioning systems that have stopped supplying cold air or are only supplying dusty air. Usually, this is because the filters have not been changed or the condenser coils have become clogged and are not allowing precious refrigerant chemicals to assume liquid form. Above all, any kind of stress or resistance encountered by the air conditioning unit will force it to work harder and therefore draw more electric power landing you with higher bills
A Regularly Serviced Air Conditioner Last For Longer
Using professional air conditioning contractors to audit and repair your system on a regular basis completely eliminates the chance of any major issues from secretly building up and suddenly wreaking havoc on your system. For example, a simple fan obstruction or blockage can put a tremendous amount of stress on the system’s motor component which can then wear and break down essentially disabling the entire system. In comparative terms, the cost of replacing a motor unit vs the cost of a service which would have picked up and remedied the fan blockage, would be much cheaper and less disruptive. Ultimately this leads to your air conditioning system enjoying a longer lease of life and allows you to get the most value out of it.
A Regularly Serviced Air Conditioner Produces Safer Air
From a wellbeing viewpoint, regular air conditioning maintenance is a way to guarantee that employees and other users of the building are breathing clean purified air. The air conditioning process relies on perpetually compressing and condensing different coolant chemicals through a system of coils very similar to how a fridge works. Without going into too much technical detail, this process creates a lot of moisture which needs to be thoroughly removed from the system. Lack of proper maintenance can see leftover moisture facilitate the growth of bacteria and other airborne pathogens which are then circulated throughout the building, causing asthma and making people sick. In the UK, employee duty of care is a requirement and all employers have a responsibility for the well being and safety of those working for the company. Improperly maintained air conditioning systems are essentially a clean air health risk and can be especially harmful to those with a pre-existing medical condition or weakened immune system.
