The future of office air conditioning installations is exciting, innovative, and - most importantly - cool, if you’ll pardon the pun! Commercial air conditioning has existed for almost a century and is developing rapidly as we approach the future, ensuring that employees and equipment can keep cool, safe, and productive in the most comfortable of conditions.
Read on to learn more about the future developments and trends of commercial air conditioning installations.
One development in commercial cooling is the use of smart sensors and advanced analytics to help improve energy efficiency and reduce overall energy consumption. Occupancy sensors, for example, can detect the number of people in a room and adjust the temperature and airflow accordingly to avoid overcooling or overheating.
Commercial air conditioning installations can also be integrated with automated lighting systems to create a more cohesive and efficient user experience. This would mean when a room is unoccupied, the air conditioning unit would turn off automatically, along with the lights and other non-essential equipment, saving energy in the process.
This innovation would help prevent wasted electricity within a commercial building, not just for air conditioning installations, but for the entire building’s electrical system.
The use of alternative cooling technologies can help reduce the environmental impact of commercial air conditioning systems. For instance, geothermal cooling makes use of the earth's natural heat sink to cool air, while evaporative cooling uses water and airflow to create a cooling effect.
Commercial air conditioning installations can be designed with sustainable materials to reduce their environmental impact, as well as integrated with other sustainable technologies, such as green roofs.
With COVID-19 raising awareness of the importance of indoor air quality, commercial air conditioning installations can adapt to prevent similar diseases from spreading within a workplace. HEPA filtration can potentially remove viruses, bacteria, and other airborne contaminants from the air.
UV-C sterilization is another advance which has the ability to kill pathogens in the air and on surfaces, as well as purification systems which can help remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other pollutants from the air.
An office air conditioning system that can filter out spreadable diseases and illnesses in a workplace will be a valuable development to the future. Not only will it prevent diseases such as COVID-19 from spreading, but will also reduce the chance of catching common colds and cases of flu, making the office a healthier place with higher productivity from employees.
