INTRODUCTION:

Buying an aura conditioning installation package in england can be a difficult decision for most business, building or property owners. There are various manufacturers, different system types and many factors to take into consideration, not only the bottom line price of the initial installation.

The following details will enlighten that you what you need to consider before going ahead with an air-con system installation inside your office, retail shop or commercial building. Please stick to the links to get more info to support this article in depth if you so wish.

DESIGN:

A professional air conditioning installation company can provide a quality design service, promoting with the ability to understand what you are receiving. A comprehensive quote is going to be supplied which will detail precisely what you are getting and why. In fact I think this would be anyone's minimum requirement when they are about to spend a large amount of money, but you will be blown away how many companies don't supply this awareness of detail.

A design must take into account the following factors:

1. Air conditioning loads of the room/s.
2. Air-flow distribution to maximise comfort for the occupants.
3. Ease of installation to maximise speed of installation for minimal disruption and system cost.
4. Price of the system to match the client's budget.
5. Running costs, including ease of maintenance and electrical consumption.
6. System type in order to meet the requirements.

A comprehensive quotation must be provided, detailing the following:

1. Design requirements.
2. The scope of works.
3. The equipment supplied.
4. Installation time.
5. Warranty from the installation and the equipment.
6. Exclusions, works etc that are not supplied.
7. Price.
8. Payment terms.
9. Contractual information supporting all parties.
10. Technical information for equipment and materials.

COST:

This really is always the main consideration for just about any business for an air-con installation, but the initial charges are not the only cost you should consider. This mistake can cost you dearly afterwards down the line. The following must be addressed and understood to help you the important long term savings:

1. The caliber of the installation is very important, top line equipment and installation materials should always be used, as well as a professional installation by qualified & experienced engineers who work from a detailed design to industry standards with a quality assurance level as quoted by the installation company. If you pay bottom price, you normally get bottom quality, air cooling companies need to make profit as with all other business! There's always a balance though so avoid being afraid to discuss this with all the installer.

2. Running expense is the most important aspect to consider when designing or buying an aura conditioning installation. Why? As it cost's around the same to own it over its lifetime as it does to purchase the installation!

3. When the design of the installation is wrong, the machine will not work properly, meaning it'll run and run, burning electricity, costing you something for free and also increasing your carbon emissions. Also, the more a system works, the harder breakdowns you are likely to get, so damage limitation is very important.

Typical examples of main point here costs influencing decisions can be seen where a single indoor ac is installed every time a twin indoor unit is required. The single is cheaper to buy than the twin, less labour to set up, equipment and material costs. The installer quotes the lowest priced price possible together with the poorest (unknowingly towards the client) quality installation as well as the client see's a saving and accepts the quote. You will get complaints of warm and cold spots inside the room, people are uncomfortable, running cost is sky high, the unit in time breaks down and nothing can be done but start again which is not on the clients agenda and budget for a solution to a problem which could of been resolved in the design and tender stage.

If your twin system was accepted, in a higher bottom line cost, the device would work comfortably, occupants can be comfortable, no hot spots and a generally more professional installation would mean limited breakdowns or no at all (as long as they are maintained annually).

COMFORT:

 the occupants is important to a satisfactory ac design and installation solution. You utilize air conditioning to make an environment comfortable, so it doesn't be the better choice to buy air conditioning when it will make the occupants un-comfortable. A comfortable temperature range for humans is 21 to 25 degrees Celsius, 21 males, 25 for females with 23 the average I advise as the recommended set temp.

Method will provide air through the indoor unit's at a temperature from 0 to twenty degrees Celsius, depending on the outdoor ambient temperature which range from 20 to 40 degrees Celsius. The indoor air off climate is relevant to the outdoor ambient.

Ac works by the indoor unit absorbing the heat via a heat exchanger, not by blowing cold air in a space. You must however, design a process that provides air flow off to the right places, this air should then resume the unit as it has absorbed the power or heat via a flight.

I am yet to discover someone who can sit in a office all day with a single air conditioning unit that blasts 0 in order to 5 degree air onto them at a rate like a desk fan would, it is just not very comfortable at all! The best way to combat this is to use a ducted unit, place the up to four ducts on the ducted unit, each duct includes a diffuser grille that blows the environment out 360 degrees at ceiling level, in a nice and slow rate letting it gently & comfortably slip onto the occupants which gives the comfort level you require at a budget both installer and client find acceptable.

SYSTEM TYPES:

Method are extremely technical. Systems can be a combination of electrics and plumbing with a high end scale. The systems have become extremely efficient and gives more possibilities than the others.

There are many different types of indoor units, they're as follows:

1. Wall unit, quickest and cheapest to set up.
2. Cassette unit, common in offices, set up in suspended ceilings.
3. Ducted unit, the priciest per unit though the most comfortable and energy efficient.

There are a few different types of outdoor units, they're as follows:

1. Single split system.
2. Multi-split system.
3. VRV System.

You will need to understand what system you desire or what you are getting. By doing this you can compare quotes in the event you went to multiple suppliers, you'll be able to make an intelligent decision based on some technical knowledge

MAINTENANCE:

Maintenance is vital because it allows the unit to function as it should, 100% efficiently. If your filters and heat exchangers are blocked, it will not work as efficiently as it may do, sometimes up to 50% less. The unit might develop problems and price money to fix it via breakdowns and excessive electrical consumption.

Standard maintenance is provided for each winter and summer season, so two visits per year. A decent air conditioning company will be able to undertake this work, will give you maintenance contract and also have some quality assurance that's applicable to a good maintenance strategy.

ENERGY CONSUMPTION:

Any purchaser of ac should assess the energy consumption of the system they require or continues to be quoted as a solution. Energy labelling is seen on consumer goods like automatic washers, tumble dryers and dishwashers. The same applies to air conditioning units.

Ac units have a electrical efficiency rating or EER in cooling along with a co-efficiency of performance CoP in heating. Air-con standards are typically typically 3.5 EER and 4 CoP. Quite simply, they give off 3.5kw of cooling and 4kw of heat to 1kw of electricity.

All systems have different EER and CoP, it all depends on the type of manufacturer, the type of system and the configuration. The supplier should be able to provide the EER and CoP inside technical details from the quotation.

CARBON EMISSIONS:

All of us have an obligation to carbon emissions reduction and reduce them where we could. Saving on electrical consumption not only saves you money, but reduces your carbon emissions. There are numerous products, services and options to consider to reduce both electrical consumption and carbon emissions.
