Is there a suggested period for re-gassing my air conditioning?

The system will need to be checked for being F-gas compliant once a year or more, dependent on the CO2 emissions of the systems. A system should not be re-charged with any refrigerant unless a leak has occurred. If the system has been installed correctly to meet F-gas legislation, then the system is pressure & strength tested before refrigerant can be released within the system. Annual or bi-annual leak testing is mandatory on all systems, according to CO2 emissions calculator to make sure any leaks are found and rectified, with a 30 day period of detection. Get in touch about re-gassing air condition systems.

Should I take my installer’s advice and arrange regular check ups for my air conditioning systems?

Yes, failure to do so on a new installation will invalidate any warranty with the installer/manufacturer, and eventually cause the system to fail and/or expensive parts to be required due to excessive wear and higher running cost increasing your carbon footprint. On an older system, regular air conditioning checkups will mean the system will run more efficiently and any issue picked up to keep the system running trouble free for the rest of its life.

What actions are carried out to the air conditioning system during the service?

In an air conditioning service, the unit’s casings are cleaned, together with the filters and the indoor/outdoor coils are cleaned with a environmentally-safe coil cleaner, electrical connections are tightened as well as a visual inspection of PC boards and components. The system is then run in heating and cooling modes and readings are taken and recorded with electrical readings. The system will also be F-gas leak checked with a visual and prepriority leak-testing fluid or electronic sniffer for any refrigerant leaks. All this is then compiled into a air conditioning service report and the F-gas log book completed for the unit or units and signed by our own in-house F-gas certified engineers. Any recommendations or if any spares are required this will then be quoted separately.

What can I do to maintain my air conditioning unit?

Keep the filters washed out with warm soapy water in a sink, Let them dry off and then fit them back in the unit. Also keep the outdoor unit heat exchanger clear of plants/leaves and free for air to be drawn through the heat exchanger. If the coil is dirty, wash down with a hose pipe on the coil only, but do not use a high-pressure hose or pressure washer as this could cause damage to the fins and the unit. It is best to have the air conditioning system serviced professionally to keep it running trouble free and efficiently.

My staff are complaining about being too hot or cold to work, what can I do?

We can visit your office and look at the best most efficient form of both heating and cooling your office staff to keep them comfortable and focused on their jobs and help you to reap the rewards of comfortable staff and performance.

Which Type of AC is Best for an Office?

The type of AC that is best for an office depends on various factors such as the size of the office, the number of occupants, and the layout of the space. Generally, a central air conditioning system that can cool the entire office is the best option.However, if the office is small, a window or split AC unit may suffice. It is also important to consider energy efficiency and noise levels when choosing an AC unit for an office, as this can impact productivity and operating costs.Consulting with our professional HVAC technicians can help determine the best AC unit for a specific office space.

Does an Office Need Air Conditioning?

Whether or not an office needs air conditioning depends on various factors such as the geographical location, climate, and size of the office. In hot and humid regions, air conditioning can help maintain a comfortable temperature and humidity level, which can improve productivity and employee well-being.Electronic equipment and machines in the office generate heat, and air conditioning can help prevent damage to these devices. However, in cooler regions or in small offices, smaller air conditioning may be more suitable. Ultimately, the decision to install air conditioning should be based on the specific needs and circumstances of the office.

What are the Different Types of Office Air Conditioning Systems?

There are several types of air conditioning systems that can be used in an office setting. The most common types include window AC units, split-system AC units, central AC systems, and portable AC units.Window and split-system AC units are typically used in smaller offices and can be mounted on a wall or in a window. Central AC systems are more commonly used in larger offices and can cool multiple rooms or an entire building. Portable AC units are also an option for offices that require flexibility or have limited space.Each type of AC system has its own benefits and drawbacks, and the choice will depend on factors such as the size of the office, budget, and energy efficiency requirements.

Where is the Best Position for an Air Conditioner in an Office?

The best position for an air conditioner in an office depends on several factors, such as the size of the office, the layout of the space, and the type of AC unit being used. Generally, an air conditioner should be placed in a central location in the room, away from direct sunlight and any heat sources.If using a split-system AC unit, the outdoor unit should be placed in a well-ventilated area outside the office. Window AC units should be installed on the north or east-facing windows to reduce exposure to direct sunlight.It is also important to ensure that the AC unit is easily accessible for maintenance and repair purposes. Our professional HVAC technicians can provide guidance on the best position for an AC unit based on the specific needs and circumstances of the office.

What is the Ideal Office Aircon Temperature?

The ideal office aircon temperature is subjective and can vary based on personal preferences and individual comfort levels. However, a temperature range of 22-25°C is generally considered to be comfortable for most people.As well as personal comfort, other factors such as the humidity level, the number of occupants in the office, and the type of work being done can also influence the ideal temperature.It is important to strike a balance between comfort and energy efficiency when setting the office aircon temperature, as lower temperatures can result in higher energy consumption and operating costs. Regular maintenance and cleaning of the AC unit can also help optimise its performance and ensure a comfortable temperature in the office.

What Temperature Can I Refuse to Work In?

In the UK, there is no specific temperature at which an employee can refuse to work. The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 state that employers must provide a comfortable working environment that is suitable for the nature of the work being done.The Approved Code of Practice suggests that a minimum temperature of 16°C (61°F) should be maintained in workplaces, or 13°C (55°F) if the work involves rigorous physical activity. However, these are just guidelines, and the actual temperature may vary based on factors such as the type of work being done, the number of occupants in the workplace, and the clothing worn by employees.If an employee feels that the workplace temperature is unsafe or poses a risk to their health, they should report the issue to their supervisor or HR representative, who should take appropriate measures to address the issue.

Is it Illegal to Work Without Air Con?

No, it is not illegal to work without air conditioning in the UK. However, employers have a legal obligation to provide a safe and healthy working environment for their employees, which includes maintaining a comfortable temperature in the workplace.The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 require employers to provide a reasonable working temperature, taking into account factors such as the nature of the work being done and the physical activity involved.The approved code of practice suggests that a minimum temperature of 16°C should be maintained in the workplace, or 13°C if the work involves rigorous physical activity. If an employer fails to provide a comfortable working environment, employees may have the right to refuse to work on health and safety grounds or report the issue to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

What is Section 44 of the Health and Safety at Work Act Heatwave?

There is no specific section 44 of the Health and Safety at Work Act that pertains to heatwaves. However, the Act requires employers to provide a safe and healthy working environment for their employees, which includes protecting them from hazards such as extreme temperatures.During heatwaves, employers may need to take additional measures to ensure the safety and well-being of their employees, such as providing adequate ventilation, offering access to water, and implementing work/rest schedules.Employees also have a responsibility to take reasonable care of their own health and safety and should report any concerns about workplace temperature or other hazards to their employer or supervisor.
