Comfort, efficiency, budget, maintenance and savings . . . these are just some of the considerations you would be mulling when deciding on the best cooling solution for your business (or home, for that matter).
South Africa is a fairly warm country – pretty much 80% of the year and working conditions can get really unpleasant if temperatures (and airflow) are not controlled.
Service Your Air Conditioner
One of the most essential pieces of equipment that has subsequently made modern day living much more comfortable is the air conditioner. An air conditioner is two-fold: It can warm up a place and cool down the temperature in unbearable conditions.
In addition to this, an air conditioner also decreases humidity levels and plays the role of a purification device by filtering out smoke particles, mites and odours.
An air conditioner has the ability to save electricity up to 60% with an integration of other features such as anti-dust filters, built-in stabilizers and adjustable temperature features. However, the key question is when an air conditioner should be maintained for maximum productivity and performance.
Changing the filter should be done once every 30 days to eliminate dust accumulation. In addition to this, it should be noted that washing the condenser should be a definitive priority.
Maintain Your Air Conditioner
Air conditioners have the impeccable ability to enhance the ventilation in a room. However, the components more often than likely become congested if not properly maintained.
It should be noted that air conditioners have separate components which include the condenser unit, located outside the house on a concrete slab and the evaporator coil above the furnace.
The different components include compressors, coolant lines, cold air return duct, blower, filter, evaporator drain lines, condenser unit, condenser coil, fan, condenser unit, evaporator coil and plenum.
Most central air conditioners are connected to a home’s forced-air distribution system. Thus, the same motor, blower and duct work used for heating are used to distribute cool air from the air conditioning system.
