Service and Repair
If you’re based in the West Midlands it might not have occurred to you that you need the services of an air-conditioning company. After all, the British climate is rarely extremely hot or extremely cold. The Workplace (Health and Safety) Regulations 1992, however, lay down an obligation on employers to maintain a “reasonable” temperature in places of work such as banks, offices or warehouses. The Approved Code of Practice suggests that 16C should be taken as a minimum (13C if physical labour is involved). The upper end depends a lot on factors such as air-flow and radiant heat so is not defined but if your employees are complaining about being too hot you need to address the issue. Better working environments lead to better productivity and one of the most overlooked areas is the quality of air your employees breathe.
What Can Air-Conditioning Do?
Modern air-conditioning systems are a far cry from the old-fashioned chilled air units you might be thinking of. In fact, we often refer to them as HVAC – Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning – systems because they aren’t just for removing excess heat.
A modern system will work automatically based on the internal and external temperature adjusting the level of heating, cooling or ventilation required. They can even move excess heat from warm parts of the building to cooler ones. The humidity of the air is also carefully controlled. No more sticky summer afternoons or dry winter mornings.
Not just that but by circulating and filtering the air the system can remove air-borne pollutants resulting in cleaner and healthier air – sometimes cleaner and healthier than the air outside!
