What Temperature Should I Set My Air Conditioning/Heater To?

There are 2x modes which allow a temperature set point to be made, cooling mode and heating mode.What Temperature Should I Set My Air Conditioning/Heater To?

The answer to this question is that there is no answer – everyone is different and will therefore like a different temperature, from our experience the general norm setting in cooling & heating mode is around 22C.

Setting Air Conditioning Temperature

Setting your Air Conditioner lower than 21C in cooling mode is normally regarded as too cold and is generally a waste of electric in trying to cool the room this cold, likewise trying to heat a room to higher than 24C is generally a waste of electric – most people set their home thermostat to approx 22C so you should set your Air Conditioner to the same temperature.

You shouldn’t set the Air Conditioner to the lowest cooling setting (generally 18C) – this is far too cold for an office environment and likewise you shouldn’t set the temperature to 30C in heating mode, both of these simply waste electric.

Keep Cool in the Office

Temperature set points can cause arguments within an office environment; we have found that men generally like the temperature lower compared to women, we have one customer whom has a mixed office and on a service visit we found that the women had all moved to one end of the office whilst the men had all moved to the other end of the office, the office had 2x air conditioner units and they found this way the men & women each had their own system – a tad extreme but nonetheless solved the office bickering.

In summary we would recommend a temperature set point of approx 22C.

Climachill fitted full air conditioning to our office premises which is a converted barn in Glynde near Lewes. We received the highest level of service right through from them providing a very competitive quotation through to the complete installation. It has transformed our working environment when we end up with extreme temperatures at either end of the scale and so much so that I have installed an air conditioning system at my own house, again which Climachill have completed to an excellent standard.

Many thanks for carrying out such a quick and professional job here last week, we are pleased that we chose Climachill over the competition for our air-conditioning installation.  As for your competitors, we chose Climachill not only because, on a like for like basis (5&7kw units) you were cheaper but because you came across as the most professional  when you visited us initially to make the site survey and discuss our requirements.

We would like to thank your company for the reliable service provided with our air conditioning systems over the last few years. The original purchase was handled smoothly and you have always been most accommodating whenever we have needed further assistance. During our recent renovation, your company was easy to contact, quick to respond and most helpful in relocating the equipment.

After contacting several Air Conditioning Suppliers who failed to turn up, I managed to locate Climachill who carried out a site survey and installed the air conditioning to regulate the temperature in my server room, all within 21 days of the initial contact with minimal disruption. This included the installation of additional electrics to cope with the extra power draw from the 3 air conditioning units and the removal of a double glazed window for the triple extraction system. I have found Climachill’s service efficient and professional and have no hesitation in recommending them.
