Summer is fast approaching and air conditioning units all over are about to put in some overtime to keep temperatures cool and comfortable. Keeping employees at work comfortable is most important to maintain a content work environment. This will result in employees working efficiently and getting jobs done in a timely manner. Two summers ago, employees of a McDonald’s restaurant walked out on the job due to the air conditioning system failing and not being repaired right away. A disgruntled work force will result in a handful of other issues, so keeping up on the status of your air conditioning unit is an important task for any employer.
In every office or work space, there are employees who prefer cooler temperatures while others prefer to stay on the warm side. Fighting over the thermostat can cause small feuds among coworkers, so deciding on a practical temperature for the office is an important point of discussion. Placing employees closer or farther away from air vents can assist in solving the great debate of air temperature throughout the office.
One thing to consider when something isn’t working with your building’s air conditioning unit is the thermostat. Thermostats can sometimes become defective or may be set improperly. This will result in your unit not turning on or not running the way it should. The location of your thermostat will also affect the way your unit performs. If your thermostat is located in an area that is constantly warm, like behind a copy machine or in direct sunlight most of the day, then your thermostat will register at a higher temperature than the rest of the office. This will cause your unit to run longer and harder to reach the temperature your thermostat is set at. When a unit is running constantly and never reaching the temperature it is programmed to reach, it can burn your system out and leave you with costly repair expenses. Be sure to put your thermostat in a location that is far from extreme temperatures, hot or cold.
Dirty Air Filters
If your building’s air conditioning unit is not blowing cool air you may have dirty air filters. Dirty air filters are also the cause of poor air flow. Clean air filters help to protect your equipment and ensure that your unit will work properly. New air filters are an inexpensive cost and will lengthen the life of your air conditioning unit, coupled with regular maintenance tune ups from professional air conditioning contractors like Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning.
