Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

Top Benefits of Ducted Air Conditioning Systems

Troy Medina

Are you thinking of installing an air conditioning system? Air conditioning systems are quite a costly investment, and you have to be very careful when choosing one for your home. Finding an air conditioning system that works perfectly for your home will require careful consideration of a few crucial factors. One of the significant decisions you will have to make is choosing between a ducted and a ductless system. Both have their pros and cons and are ideal for different applications. However, here are some of the benefits you stand to gain by investing in a ducted system.

Quieter Operation

One of the greatest selling points of ducted air conditioning systems is that they tend to have lower noise emissions than most of their counterparts. Ducted air conditioning systems can operate with quite low sound levels because the air is usually conditioned away from the rooms and only distributed through the ducts. Perhaps the only noise you may hear, which can be quite inaudible, is the sound of the air blowing out of your air vents.

Low sound levels are not just good for your own peace of mind at home. It's worth noting there are also some regulations when it comes to the level of noise in residential areas, especially if you live in a place such as an apartment with shared walls. Fortunately, due to the low noise produced by ducted air conditioning systems, they are usually compliant with the applicable limits.

Zoning Capability

Ducted air conditioning allows for the easy creation of zones to be conditioned in your home. That is, your home can be divided into multiple zones to allow you to control the temperature settings of each one. This comes with significant energy savings because you only have to condition the rooms currently in use. For instance, you can turn off zones such as the bedrooms during the day when they are not being used.

Seamless Look

If you're concerned about the interior look of your home, ducted air conditioning systems would be the ideal choice. Ducted systems don't have wall units, unlike their split system counterparts. Window units can also be quite visible and affect the indoor look of your home. For ducted systems, all the external and internal units are usually out of sight. Only the vents are visible, but these are generally quite small compared to wall or window units.

Keep in mind that ducted air conditioning systems are a good idea if you already have ductwork in place. That's because installing new ducts can make the whole project significantly costly.
