Toshiba Air Conditioning

If you’re looking to have a commercial air conditioning system installed in your office or commercial property, you’re probably concerned about cost. You know the importance of having an air conditioner; if it gets too hot and stuffy, then employee productivity could fall, which could be detrimental to your business. But you’re also probably concerned about the initial cost of installation to your business and the subsequent costs to your energy bills.

In order to ensure that you’re getting the best deal possible, make sure that you have a consultation with a qualified air conditioner technician. When you’re having the consultation, make sure that you discuss the following.

The size and capacity

You’ll need to make sure to find out exactly the size and capacity you’ll need to cool the office or property. There are a number of calculations available online that will help you to work this out, but your technician should be able to work this out as well. If it’s too small, you won’t be having the area cooled down effectively,which will make the system work harder and result in increased energy bills for you.

The ductwork

Make sure to get your technician to properly review your current ductwork so that they can view if it’s possible to use what you currently have, or if you need to get new ductwork installed. This could be costly if you’re having work done that you don’t need, so make sure to get it properly reviewed.

Energy efficiency

Once the technician has had a good look, they’ll be able to recommend the best way forward. Make sure to research the systems that they suggest, and review how energy efficient they are. You want to invest in the most energy efficient system possible, even if this does mean an increase in the initial investment, because it will mean lower energy bills in the future.


There are a range of technologies available now that will help to improve the overall usability of your air conditioning system. Ask your technician what they would recommend. From remotes to timers, you can usually add these on at a small extra cost, and will make your life so much easier.
