How can Synecore help?

There are many options available for office air conditioning and Synecore is here to help you make the right choice for your business premises and workforce. Following an initial site survey of your property, we will discuss any concerns or special requirements you may have. Our engineers will advise on a suitable air conditioning system for your office space and budget.

What type of air conditioning installation do I need?

The type of office air conditioning installation you need will be determined by the size of your property. Here is a brief overview of the type of air conditioning systems available for various size commercial properties.

Large commercial office air conditioning

A VRF or VRV air conditioning system is suited to large commercial properties with multiple levels and individual office spaces. One VRF or VRF air conditioning plant can accommodate up to 64 indoor units.

While these systems are ever evolving to become more compact this type of air conditioning system does require an outside space – preferably a roof top, or enclosed area at ground level.

The system provides both heating and cooling to various spaces within the property simultaneously. Its sophisticated technology also recovers heat from areas within the property and disperses it where required, making significant energy savings.

Average size offices air conditioning

For an average size office, a multi-split air conditioning system can connect from two to eleven indoor units. Like a VRF or VRV system, it can heat and cool at a variable rate, meaning you can adapt the temperature in various offices to suit individual needs.

Small office air conditioners

For a small office the best cooling option is a split air conditioning system. This a cost effective and efficient system that simply connects to one indoor unit.

Indoor air conditioning unit options

Your interior design, layout and personal preferences will determine the type of indoor air conditioning units you would like installed, but here is a brief overview.

Cassette air conditioning unit – this unit is mounted into the ceiling space, usually within a suspended ceiling system to allow access for ongoing maintenance.

Wall mounted air conditioning unit – precisely what it says on the tin, this is a unit mounted onto the wall. These come in different colours and of course white.

Ducted unit – this unit can be disguised behind wall or ceiling void and finished with a simple and discreet vent.

Office air conditioning controls

Office air conditioning systems come with a remote control and central control panel that is affixed to the wall. Both are simple interfaces that allow the user to easily operate the temperature controls to suit the office needs.

Why is office air conditioning important?

Office air conditioning has evolved in terms of energy efficiency and its practicalities. With the ability to heat and cool a space almost instantly, air conditioning systems are replacing the traditional heating. Consequently, even the smallest of offices can now benefit from a new air conditioning system.

Providing a comfortable ambient temperature can enhance any working environment and improve productivity among your workforce. With the right air conditioning system in place, your business could reap the benefits.

Office air conditioning maintenance

Whether you have a new air conditioning installation, or you already have a system in place, regular maintenance is essential. FGas regulations mean that the operator (office manager, business owner or landlord) is responsible for ensuring the system is regularly maintained by a qualified engineer. Failure to do so, can result in a fine.

This can be a daunting prospect, which is why Synecore provides a hassle-free air conditioning maintenance service for businesses in Kent, London, Surrey, Sussex, Essex and the wider UK.

Synecore’s Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) service takes care of all your air conditioning maintenance.
