Why Is It Important To Regularly Service Commercial Air Conditioners?
It’s estimated that, for every year you fail to conduct commercial air conditioning maintenance, the efficiency of your system drops by approximately 5%. This in turn affects operational costs, while neglect can also lead to expensive repairs and even replacement. Therefore, it’s important to have your air conditioner regularly serviced – we recommend a major service once every 12 months. Apart from performance, there are other reasons that your business’s air conditioner should be regularly serviced.

Benefits of commercial air conditioning systems
Perhaps the most obvious benefit associated with air conditioning installation is temperature regulation. In a commercial environment where machinery, equipment, and people coexist, it’s risky when temperature increases to dangerous levels. With commercial air conditioning system in place, you can maintain the temperature in your workplace at a more comfortable level both for you and your employees. Ever had one of those days when everything seems to drag on just because it’s hot? High quality air conditioners can fix that! When your employees are comfortable, their minds are clear and they’re always ready to tackle their tasks for the day.
Reduced energy bills
Hesitant to replace your old and outdated HVAC system because you think that means having to spend much more on commercial air conditioning installation? You must be getting the wrong idea about modern air conditioning services! Nowadays, Brisbane commercial air conditioning systems are built to be environmentally friendly and energy efficient. That means that by getting rid of your old system, you don’t only cut your energy costs but you also reduce your business’s carbon footprint.
You know how hard it is to concentrate on getting your work done when you’re feeling too hot. Working under extremely hot conditions makes you and your employees inefficient and less motivated compared to when there are air conditioners around. With air conditioning systems, you can achieve optimum temperature levels and help boost your employees’ productivity no matter how hot it gets outside. That’s scientifically proven! In fact, according to the Association for Psychological Science (APS), people have a harder time being productive when they’re feeling too hot. Workers who are working at a comfortable temperature also tend to be much happier, so don’t think twice about installing air conditioning units in your workplace or swapping out your old HVAC system.
You know how noisy electric fans can get sometimes. If you need some cool air in your workplace but don’t want to be distracted by noise, go for commercial air conditioning. Since modern commercial air conditioning units are very quiet, you can hardly notice they are cooling the air around your workplace. Air conditioning systems aren’t as distracting as electric fans but they make the ambiance in your workplace so much better! Not only that–typically, doors and windows are closed off to air conditioned rooms so less noise enters your office, keeping it cool and quiet.
Are you a business owner who has taken the time to reduce your paper waste and greenify your office in other ways? Then your commercial air conditioning system should be your next step towards greenifying your workplace! When you upgrade your air conditioning system in the office, you are helping your business engage in more environmentally friendly practices. Ask Sun City Air conditioning specialists about programmable and smart thermostats to help you control your office’s interior environment.
Ever heard about “sick building syndrome?” When the air inside your workplace has quality problems, your employees start to feel sick for no apparent reason. Without air conditioning installations in your workplace, the carbon monoxide in the parking garage located near your building might easily infiltrate your indoor air or may cause your old HVAC to circulate dust and debris through your duct network. You know how old air conditioning systems are often the victims of dirt and dust buildup. When this happens, particles end up traveling throughout your HVAC vents and contaminating the air inside your office. And what does contaminated air often result in? Illnesses such as asthma, allergies, and more. With a new air conditioning system, your workers don’t only get to enjoy clean air but also stay healthy.
Repairs for older air conditioning systems can be very expensive. Unfortunately, if you haven’t been keeping up with your maintenance, or if you bought a building with an old system, you may be facing some costly repairs down the road. We’re certain you wouldn’t want repairs involving replacement parts end up costing your business thousands of dollars. When you invest in new air conditioners, all you need to do is to make sure that they are maintained on schedule. It’s very simple.
Commercial air conditioning Brisbane FAQs
Q: How can I save energy when using an air con?
A: 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.
Q: What is ducted air conditioning?
A: This 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.
Q: My commercial air conditioner is more than 10 years old. Should I get it fixed or replace it?
A: 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.
Q: How often should I clean my commercial air conditioning unit?
A: When its filter light flashes, you know it’s time to clean it. Sometimes, however, it still depends on the environment or air purity. In a normal domestic situation, cleaning your air con once every season is enough. But in a commercial situation, we advise cleaning your HVAC system once a month.
Q: Can I switch my air conditioner off at the powerpoint or at the fuse box?
A: It’s fine to turn its power off, especially if your office is going to be empty for long periods. If your unit has a low wattage crankcase heater that keeps its compressor warm, that’s good since a cold compressor usually gets damaged at startup. Once you turn off your air conditioner, make sure that you’ve turned it on for at least 12 hours before use.
