It’s difficult for business owners to decide whether air conditioning is worth the investment, particularly when it comes to temperature wars in the office. To make your decision a little easier, we’ve outlined just a few reasons why your office would benefit from an air conditioning system this summer.
Maintain optimum comfort
By law, employers are required to ensure staff members remain comfortable in the environment they’re working in, which includes sufficient temperature control. Now let’s not get ahead of ourselves, yes, it’s rare that the UK reaches unbearable temperatures, but it’s still something worth considering, particularly in the summer months.
No one likes to feel hot and sticky at work. It’s an incredibly difficult environment to work in, which reduces productivity in the workplace. Not only does air con keep offices cool, but they work to remove excess moisture in the air to eliminate humidity.
Improve air quality
Busy offices can be a breeding ground for sickness bugs, and a common perception is that an air conditioning system spreads them. In fact, air conditioning systems contain filters that purify the air, which reduces the number of bacteria and dust particles, odours and potential allergens. Workers that suffer from allergies, in particular, will benefit greatly from an air-filtering system.
It’s a scorching-hot day and the likelihood of your staff opening windows and doors to keep the office cool is high. However, it’s easy to forget to shut the windows and close doors securely, potentially leaving your business vulnerable to break-ins from unwanted visitors.
Prevent damp and mould
Air con does your building a favour too. Warm, moist atmospheres can lead to damp and mould developing, which could mount up to be an expensive bill. Having the air conditioning switched on could protect the structure of your office.
Protect your IT equipment
Particularly in the summer, your office’s IT equipment can suffer greatly from overheating, which could potentially lead to irreversible damage. Like your staff, ensure your equipment is performing to its optimum with sufficient air conditioning facilities.
