How Does Inefficient Maintenance of Air-Conditioning Affect Big Multinational Companies (MNCs) in Singapore?

Do you run a multinational company (MNC) or a large organization in Singapore? If you do, we're sure you are always on the lookout to find ways how to be efficient in running your company/business, including the management of direct expenses such as the energy use for your entire building. HVAC/air conditioning systems account for approx. 30-50% of a building's energy consumption. So it is very important to adopt ways how to cut down this expense source. Also, one of the things that you must get right is a good working environment for your staff. The Singapore laws indicate that all workers are entitled to work in environments where all risks to their safety and health are appropriately controlled. To deliver this conducive working environment, one huge factor is to have a good air-conditioning (AC) system. The AC system helps to control not only the temperature and humidity but also clears harmful particles from the indoor environment. Therefore, it is prudent to ensure that it is running optimally all the time. However, it is not uncommon to find some malfunctioning systems in some companies. In this post, we take a closer look at the air conditioning for multinationals in Singapore and demonstrate the negative effects of inefficient maintenance. We will also highlight the best methods that you can use to maintain the AC in top-notch condition.
