Planning and Executing Construction and Contracting Projects: Tips for Consumers

Welcome to my blog. My name is Deborah. About 15 years ago, I bought an old home. We worked with several contractors to rehabilitate it, but ultimately, the foundation simply wasn't stable enough, and we had to tear it down. After that, we worked with a construction crew to build a home from the ground up. The experience was exciting and challenging, and I learned a lot through that process. I want to share construction and contracting facts and information with others so I decided to start this blog. I hope that you like the results, and I thank you for reading. Enjoy!

Planning and Executing Construction and Contracting Projects: Tips for Consumers

Choosing the right type of air conditioner for your small business

by Samantha Russell

As a small business owner, you have a lot to think about when it comes to making your work place as comfortable for your workers as possible while still ensuring it can fulfill the purpose of the business. One thing that is very important for a small business owner to keep in mind is the air conditioning in your work space. If your workers have to work in an environment that's too hot, it can affect their morale. It can also deter potential clients from spending time in your work place. In order to make sure you choose the right type of commercial air conditioning for your work place, there are a few things you should think about.

Wall or window mounted

A wall or window mounted air conditioning unit can be very effective in small spaces. They don't require a lot of space, they're easy and fast to install, and they are also simple to perform maintenance on, as there's only one unit you need to examine. These types of air conditioners are great options if you only have one room that needs to be air conditioned in your building. However, if you need to cool down more than one room, these models are not the best option, as you'll have to buy more than one unit. They can also make the facade of your building look aesthetically displeasing by being dotted with air conditioners.

Split system

A split air conditioning system is a large system that lets you cool down more than one space with the same air conditioning unit. Ducts are running from the unit out to the different spaces through the walls, meaning it's easy to cool the entire building down by only managing one unit. These systems are, however, more expensive than simpler options. If you don't have more than one or two spaces that need to be cooled down in your building, a split system might be unnecessary.

Reverse cycle

If your business is located in an area with great differences in temperature, you might want to consider a reverse cycle air conditioner. These types of air conditioners come in many different models, but what makes them special is that you can warm an area up just as easily as you cool it down. These types of air conditioners are usually more expensive than types that are only made for cooling, but as they have double functionality it might be worth it. Also remember that these types of units require more maintenance, as the difference between hot and cold can create condensation in the unit, which has to be removed to avoid mould and mildew.
