When the weather is hot, turn on your air conditioner early rather than work it harder once your home warms up. It also helps adjusting the louvres on split systems so they disperse air downwards when heating and upwards when cooling. It is best to check the energy star labels of your air conditioners before you buy–the more stars they have, the more energy efficient they are.
If your air conditioner has not been keeping up with its service maintenance, it is more expensive to have it fixed than replace it. Contact your trusted air conditioning services provider to know how much it will cost you either way.
A ducted air conditioning system
refers to one that delivers cool or warm air from an external fan into multiple rooms through ducts located in the ceiling.
In a commercial setting, fluctuating meeting room temperatures are a common problem. The reason being is the changing heat load in meeting rooms.
People generate heat – so you can understand why the heat generated by two people is vastly different to that generated by ten or more.
The solution is to have dynamic and reactive cooling in the meeting room. This is commonly done by means of installing a separate supplementary system or by having thermostatically controlled variable damping of air supply.
Under most commercial leases routine servicing and maintenance are for the tenants account. This includes servicing, filter cleaning and replacement
, and maintenance / replacement of controllers.
Capital repairs and system replacements are normally for the landlord’s account. This ranges from major repairs, like compressor replacements through to replacement of a system beyond economic repair.
We have seen leases where the tenant is responsible for all costs – such that they are required to hand an air conditioner back to the landlord at the end of the lease in the same condition as it was handed over at the start of the lease.
In all cases you should read your lease to determine who needs to pay for what.
