While your commercial air conditioning system primarily runs in the background and you possibly do not pay it much attention, it does function as the heart of your building. When the commercial air conditioning is down or not working at optimum, chances are you and your employees will all be miserable as the extreme temperature changes in Australia steal onto your premises. Thus, just as you would engage in maintenance to keep your residential AC working in excellent condition, it is also prudent to do the same for your commercial unit too. A good maintenance measure to start with will be ensuring that the system is running efficiently as it possibly can. The following are a few hacks to making your commercial air conditioning system more efficient.
Have the system's ducts partitioned
While ensuring that your entire building's heating and cooling needs are met is a primary priority of having a commercial air conditioning system, you should bear in mind that these needs will vary from one area to the next. Some parts of the building may feel colder during the winter depending on the orientation of the structure, whereas others may be warmer during the summer.
Rather than running your commercial air conditioning on blast to create one uniform ambient temperature, you are better off having the system's ducts partitioned. By partitioning the ducts, warm and cold air can be redirected as required to the different areas that have varying temperature needs. Resultantly, your commercial air conditioning system is at less risk of overheating since it will not be overworked.
Have automation integrated into the system
The next hack to increase the energy efficiency of your commercial air conditioning system is to automate the unit. Commercial air conditioning units comprise a multitude of components. For the system to heat and cool your building effectively, all these various parts need to work in tandem. The moment that one element is out of step, it will diminish the optimum operating conditions.
Through automation, you have full control over every single component required for heating and cooling your structure. For instance, you can alter the speed of the unit's fans from a simple push of a button. Alternatively, you could even change the distribution of air through the system's ducts depending on what suits you best. By automating the system, your commercial air conditioning starts to rely on sensors and commands rather than people manually having to adjust it accordingly.

Welcome to my blog which covers a wide range of HVAC topics. I'm Josh and I live in Perth, Australia. I never really used to think about the HVAC system in my home. I believed that when it was hot the HVAC system would cool me down and when it was cold it would warm my house up. However, all that changed one day when the HVAC system went crazy. It began to blow hot air into my house on the warmest day of the year. The contractor I called out said that one of the sensors had broken. He explained how I could better maintain my HVAC system so I decided to start this blog.
