Considerations To Make For Cooling Your Warehouse Efficiently
By virtue of being Britain, our weather is frequently subject to change and, even as we finally escape the recent heatwave, it is still wise to ensure you have the requisite systems in place to maintain adequate temperatures within your warehouse.
For this reason, within this blog we outline not only a few best practices for keeping your warehouse at an optimum temperature, but also how to cool it efficiently.
Check Your Systems
To ensure both the optimum cooling of your warehouse (the importance of which is outlined within this blog) and consequently, a higher level of energy efficiency, we at Rapid Climate Control suggest you take steps to evaluate the components within your cooling system.
If you do not have the requisite time or knowledge to accurately assess the extent to which your cooling systems are in working order, you should enlist the assistance of your contractor and ask them to perform regular inspections and check-ups; there is no point investing in a high-efficiency unit within your warehouse if it is underperforming. Another point to consider is the cost incurred by a preventable breakdown, this might seriously affect the ability of both workers and equipment to perform optimally.
Ensure Sensors and Thermostats Are Working Effectively
The key to efficient cooling lies in the ability to use just as much energy as is needed. Naturally, a prerequisite for striking this balance between temperature and energy-consumption is an accurate grasp of the temperature at any given time. It is for this reason then, that any sensors and thermostats must be actively assessed and calibrated. If the temperature readings are not correct and your thermostats do not react to temperature fluctuations quickly enough, you run the risk of using excess energy trying to correct the balance. This is not exactly conducive to efficient cooling.
Filters and External Equipment
Following on from the previous points, we also suggest you stay on top of managing any filters as changing them regularly helps cooling units to work efficiently, keeping the air as clean as possible. Also, it is essential that external units are checked for dirt, debris or damage from environmental conditions as these could affect the unit’s ability to operate effectively.
The decision to optimise your energy consumption not only helps to show your commitment to CSR and protecting your environment, it also offers a more directly measurable impact - monetary savings. Given reduced costs are something all companies are eager to pursue, we have created a handy infographic guide helping you to cool off your air conditioning costs and save money otherwise spent on excess energy consumption.
