Here at Airedale Cooling Services we are dedicated to making sure your commercial premises are fully equipped with the latest and highly efficient air conditioning system. With this in mind, we have compiled a guide to the varying styles of air conditioning and the steps you need to take to ensure your unit is fitted correctly.
Why have air conditioning?
Air conditioning systems are becoming more common in commercial, industrial and institutional buildings and transportation systems throughout the UK. They are relied upon in such environments as they regulate the temperature by balancing the warming and cooling levels, keeping areas feeling constantly refreshed and comfortable.
Different types of air conditioning
Most air conditioning systems make use of what is known as the refrigeration cycle. This essentially involves a condenser in which a gas refrigerant is compressed. This gas is then sent through an evaporator coil that cools the surrounding air. Split air conditioning systems are common in commercial buildings, such as hotels, as they offer:
- superior performance
- energy efficiency
- complete comfort
- stylish design
VRV and VRF systems are ideal for demanding offices and large commercial buildings as they use variable refrigerant flow control. While conventional air conditioning systems operate throughout the entire building, VRV and VRF systems allow the users to monitor and control the temperature in each room or floor individually. This is extremely beneficial as it allows employees to feel comfortable in their workspace without changing the temperature of other rooms in the building.
In these systems there are two separate units: one inside the building (an evaporative unit) and one on the outside (a condensing unit) with a passage through the wall to connect them. Basically, if the refrigerant (which acts like a sponge) is compressed outside, heat will be expelled into the air. If it is brought back into the building and allowed to expand more heat will be soaked up.
Some large buildings make use of central air conditioning systems in which the evaporative unit is much further from the condenser unit and a forced air heating system is used.
Installing an air conditioning unit
Air conditioning systems must always be fitted by a fully qualified, experienced technician. This ensures the installation is completed with total precision and care, with minimal disruption to the rest of the building. By hiring the expertise of a professional, you can enjoy peace of mind that all work is carried out in line with the relevant regulations for a high performing air conditioning system.
