Things to consider when choosing commercial heating and cooling systems

Maintaining a safe and comfortable temperature is crucial to any business, whether you’re a restaurant, bar or a retailer. Keeping your establishment warm in winter and cool in the summer means that customers will spend more time inside and are therefore more likely to spend more money! 

There are a wide variety commercial heating and air conditioning systems out there, so choosing the best one can be a daunting task. Essentially, you’ll want to choose a system that will keep you and your customers happy as well as save money on energy and repair costs. Every business is unique and has unique requirements and considerations. Before you make your choice, you will want to speak to a contractor you can trust.

Noise level

Nobody wants an annoying sound ringing in their ears when trying to eat or shop. Creating a pleasant atmosphere is crucial to the success of your business, your establishment should be pleasing to your customer’s eyes and ears at the very least. The more efficient the air conditioner, the quieter it is. Less efficient fans are louder as the fan needs to work harder in order to create the desired temperature. Most modern air conditioners however are so quiet that you shouldn’t be able to hear the motor or even the fan. Whichever unit you choose, do not have it installed in a noise-sensitive location where it could irritate your customers.

Health and safety

Providing your employees and your customers with a comfortable environment is essential to meeting health and safety standards. Commercial air conditioning systems are a wise investment and the most efficient way to make sure you fulfil your health and safety obligations.

 

Efficiency and the environment

Efficiency is an important factor to consider when choosing a commercial air con or heating system. Units with higher or maximum efficiency will cost more initially, but will ultimately save you money over time and will return your investment many times over. 

If the environment is important to you there are systems available which minimise the use of energy and carbon footprint.
