Choosing an Air Conditioning Unit
When it comes to choosing an air conditioner for your office, size matters. You don’t want to buy an air conditioner that’s too small or too large; if the air conditioner is too small, it won’t be able to cool your office effectively.
Consequently, this will result in higher energy bills and a stuffy, uncomfortable office.
On the other hand, if the air conditioner is too large, it will cool your office quickly but waste a lot of energy in the process.
And not only will this drive up your energy bills, but it can also make your office uncomfortably cold.
So how do you choose the right size air conditioner for your office?
The first step is to measure the square footage of your office.
Once you have the square footage, multiply it by 30 BTUs (British Thermal Units) as this will give you a rough estimate of how many BTUs you’ll need to cool your office.
Next, take into account the number of people who will be using the air conditioner.
Generally speaking, for every person in your office, add 400 BTUs, as this will ensure that your air conditioner can handle the heat generated by people in your office.
Lastly, the amount of direct sunlight and the size of windows must also be considered when determining how much cooling a building will require – a south-facing office with big glass windows, for example, will obviously require more air conditioning than a shaded basement.
Once you’ve taken all of these factors into account, it’s time to start shopping for an air conditioner!
Whilst it can be tempting to just go for the one with the highest BTU rating, don’t use this as the sole factor: too large a unit for your space, and the air will cool before humidity is removed and result in an unpleasant office.
So, be sure to compare different models and brands to find the best air conditioner for your office.
And remember, don’t be afraid to ask for help from a professional; a heating and cooling specialist can help you choose the right size air conditioner for your office and provide tips on how to save money on your energy bills.
