Maintaining Ideal Office Temperature
According to science, the humidity and temperature at our workplaces have a direct impact on the overall productivity of people. In case you’re in an office where’s too warm, the chances are you’ll feel sleepy and there are significant drops of concentration levels. On the other hand, too low temperatures can lead to complaints, illnesses and lack of productivity. Obviously, if you want your employees to be focused, awake, healthy and productive, it’s crucial to maintain ideal office temperature and humidity. I’ve asked Carrollton Heating and Air Conditioning experts for some tips on this topic. Here’s what I’ve found out!
First of all, it’s important to choose the right air conditioner for your office(s). While some AC units are suitable for the office in terms of function and size, others might not meet even the basic requirements. As an employer, you are responsible for the overall well-being of your employees, so it’s of extreme importance to choose the AC unit wisely.
Nowadays, there are many air conditioning appliances: fitted, portable, coolers, fans etc. Therefore, you need to consider for how long, where and how you would like to use it. In case your office requires a temporary AC unit, there’s a chance to “rent it” for a limited period of time and save some money. When it comes to the size, don’t buy something just because it’s “big”; bigger doesn’t mean the AC unit will be better. In fact, an oversized air conditioner consumes more energy than it is necessary; not only will you waste energy, but you’ll also need to pay more than before. On the other hand, too small unit isn’t able to cool the office properly.
Buying and installing an AC unit isn’t enough; it’s vital not to neglect its maintenance. If you care for your air conditioning system properly, you’ll prolong its lifespan and you’ll decrease the consumption of energy. Although there are some tutorials on doing this on your own, in my opinion, hiring a professional is better and less expensive (in the long run) option. A commercial AC maintenance usually includes the filtration check, central rooftop AC unit examination, checking of the thermostat calibration and measuring the fresh air flow.
Finally, if you’re not certain about the right HVAC system for your business and/or how to maintain it properly, call the professionals and ask them for help.
