Effects of Very Warm Weekend
During the weekend Auckland’s daytime and overnight temperatures have been constantly very warm.
The combination of very warm weather over the weekend plus having most air conditioning systems switched off would have caused buildings to absorb heat resulting in the temperature of the occupied space being very similar to the average out door air temperature.
The cooling systems of most commercial office buildings are not designed to cool the building from these very warm temperatures and therefore it is very likely that the required rate of cooling the building this morning (Monday morning) may exceed or be close to the cooling capacity of the air conditioning system.
Therefore it will not be unusual for occupants to feel the air conditioning system is not working/coping making them will feel ‘too hot’, stuffy or ‘temperature all over the place’ and some cases feel the air conditioning is blowing very cold drafts.
Please feel free to contact Ideal Air if you have any question/concerns regarding this Service Alert.
