How We Make Air Conditioning More Sustainable?

Global warming is a serious issue, and we are all having to take more steps to look after our planet. We can all lead eco-friendlier lifestyles and reduce our carbon footprints, and part of that comes down to how we use appliances at home and at work.

While air conditioning often gets a bad rap when it comes to reducing energy, we make a big effort to ensure our air conditioning units are sustainable and that they will continue to be so in the future.

So how do we go about ensuring this?

Meeting and Exceeding Regulations

We have a policy in place where we always make an effort to supply products that comply with environmental regulations, as well as complying with and exceeding statutory requirements. For example, in January 2015, R22 was banned in air conditioning systems, which is something we comply with 100%.

Clear Labelling

We make sure that all our air conditioning units have clear labelling so you can see how energy efficient they are. The labelling on your unit provides you with all you need to know about the energy consumption, cooling output and more, helping you to choose the right one for your needs.

Providing Expert Advice

While the air conditioning units themselves obviously play a big role in reducing your carbon footprint, how you use your unit and maintain it in your business is important as well.

That’s why we provide our customers with the latest information not only on selecting the right products that use less energy, such as those endorsed by the Carbon Trust, but we also provide professional maintenance. Good maintenance helps to prevent loss of energy efficiency and saves you money, so it’s important to maintain your system correctly.

Environmental Policy

When you choose us for your air conditioning system, you know you are choosing a company that has a solid environmental policy in place. This applies to the products we sell as well as how we run the company. For example, we recycle and reuse products as much as possible. You can find out more about our environmental policy here.

Constantly Improving

Air conditioning technology is changing all the time. In the last decade, technology has improved so that modern air con systems are more efficient than ever before, and new developments are constantly being made.

One thing we can promise you is that at Air Options we will always stay up to date with all the latest developments to ensure we are consistently providing the most sustainable air conditioning you can get for your business.

Save Energy with Your Air Conditioning

These are some of the ways that we help to keep air conditioning more sustainable. But while we can help you to invest in more sustainable air conditioning and give you advice, your business should also have an environmental policy in place to reduce your environmental footprint.

If you have not created one already, plan your own environmental policy and include details on how to choose a sustainable air conditioning system as well as how to use it to reduce your energy usage. Together, we can do a lot to improve the sustainability of air conditioning going into the future.
