About Air-Conditioning Servicing
Why is servicing important?
The purpose of air-conditioning units are to remove humidity from the air and to cool the area simultaneously.
A typical air-conditioning unit will start by collecting heat from the air, pulling it through the unit to meet the evaporator coil in the middle. The evaporator coil is essentially cold pipes filled with a special liquid that allows them to remain cold at all times – unless it hasn’t been well maintained.
The evaporator coil should then cool the air and push it back out of the unit. The liquid in the evaporator coil becomes a gas when it absorbs heat from the air and is then pushed towards another coil called the condenser. The condenser shrinks the gas, turning it back to liquid form ready for the next cycle.
Without the correct servicing, any one of these components can easily become faulty, causing a great deal of stress and costs to your business. The build-up of debris and frost can sometimes cause leaks.
There are however, several benefits to having a serviced air-conditioning unit. These are:
- Controllable comfort
- Reduced humidity (often confused with heat)
- Silent operation
- Allows windows to be kept closed (less insects, noise pollution and security risks)
- Improved air quality and increased productivity
- Longer AC lifespan
- Reduced energy bills
- Fewer repair bills
- Convenient heat
- Reduced fungi & mites in the air
- Computer equipment remains cool
Keeping a well-maintained, regularly-serviced air-con unit will ensure your workers have a much healthier working environment, and you will soon see an increase in productivity.
Ensure your workforce always have the right tools they need to do their job.
Do I need air-conditioning?
Under the terms of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, employers in the UK are required by law to ensure that a suitable amount of air enters the workplace in order to allow employees to breathe more easily.
Legislation also states that an employer should provide employees with a reasonable indoor working temperature of at least 16°C, heating and air-conditioning, and sufficient space in workrooms. In the event of excessive heat, windows must be easily opened, and fans & working air-conditioning must be available, as should blinds to shade workers from the sun.
Furthermore, the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 necessitates employers to keep air-conditioning systems in good working order and carry out regular services and repairs.
