Owing to soaring energy costs, air conditioning energy efficiency and improving air conditioning energy efficiency is more important than ever. At Air Options, we understand this and provide expert advice on how your business can reduce the energy costs of running an air conditioning system.
Prior to energy price hikes, the majority of businesses were able to justify the costs of running an air conditioning system as part of their operational costs. Things have now changed with businesses now forced into looking at alternate ways of reducing the costs of running an air conditioning system given energy prices are anything but affordable.
Reducing air conditioning energy usage can be achieved in two ways, with the first being the installation of a modern energy efficient air conditioning system, with the energy savings this brings and the second being the regular servicing of a current air conditioning system.
Prior to the recent energy price increases, when energy prices were far more affordable, reducing air conditioning energy costs by installing a new system was often seen as prohibitive due to fact that the short-term savings did not justify the capital investment. However, as energy prices have continued to rise and air conditioning systems have become considerably more energy efficient, this may no longer be the case.
There was a time when most businesses only had their air conditioning systems serviced to comply with government and HSE legislation. Businesses historically gave little thought to reducing air conditioning energy costs through regular servicing, or even how regular and reliable servicing could reduce the costs of running an air conditioning system.
Straight forward tasks such as the cleaning of filters, condensers, and heat exchangers do make a measurable difference, not only to system performance, but also to air conditioning energy efficiency and running costs.
