Never underestimate the importance of air conditioning maintenance. It’s essential that the air con systems are regularly inspected. Doing so goes a long way. The investment can make all the difference in costs, health, and a long-lasting system that your business can rely on.
Some might consider air conditioning a luxury cost; however, when the weather changes and it’s hot, it’s best to keep employees, clients, and customers happy so they are comfortable, and productivity doesn’t drop. So, if you decide to install a system, make sure it’s regularly maintained to avoid costly repairs or health hazards.
Air Conditioning Repair Costs
Don’t be caught out by last-minute repair costs to your air conditioning. Did you know that regular maintenance can cut energy costs by 25%, and if you don’t invest in maintenance you lose 5% efficiency per year? That adds up quickly. Poor air conditioning can also lead to a plethora of health issues.
Keep Health Hazards at Bay
Maintenance helps to keep health hazards away. The price of leaving it unchecked means that employees and clients can pay with their health. Not only can faulty air conditioning cause a bad smell in the workplace, but it can also create more significant problems such as a build-up of bacteria which can affect everyone, especially staff who suffer from allergies or asthma.
Then there’s the elephant in the room – poisoning. Broken units can poison the people in your workplace. Leakage in the coolant can evaporate into gas which seeps into the work environment. This exposure can cause symptoms such as feeling faint and potentially even more lethal outcomes.
Employees can be left feeling the chill if air conditioning is not in working order. Keeping cool in the summer months is fantastic, but if your system isn’t working, the temperature might be too cold which is not only uncomfortable but can cause productivity to drop. Focusing on trying to stay warm means focus is not on work.
Efficient air conditioning is critical if you want your business to function effectively. If you’re going to keep the cold away, make sure employees are healthy, and if you don’t want to spend money on surprise repairs, regular maintenance is essential.
