More for the Office, the Workers and the Air: Improving HVAC Productivity
People work best in comfortable environments. One of the biggest problems business owners face is pinpointing what ‘comfortable’ actually means for their entire team. In the modern office space, air conditioning is a requisite. Making such a large HVAC system pleasing to everyone can be very difficult, so let us here at All Air Services suggest some things you can do to make everyone keep their cool.
More AC Thermostats
Employees have different preferences when it comes to temperature. Some may have a tolerance for the highs and lows, while others absolutely do not. Setting the ambient temperature could turn from picking an arbitrary number to a crucial decision that can influence productivity. Large office spaces that rely on a single ‘administrator’ thermostat are bound to produce unhappy workers, either sweating or freezing. A simple solution to this problem would be installing thermostats in different air conditioning zones, so employees in a single area could set the best temperature for themselves.
More AC Diffusers
There has to be at least one person who gets the privilege of sitting beneath the AC vent. Office space is limited, so there is no reason to let a sizeable desk space go unoccupied. But, these spots may be causing a worker undue suffering, especially if they are not particularly inclined to wear a parka at work. Install a diffuser at each vent; it is up to you whether you want an adjustable or fixed design, so long as you consider the spaces where the diffuser would divert the air.
More AC Maintenance
Still, the most valuable advice we can give for both commercial and residential HVAC system owners is proper regular maintenance. Office systems are much more taxing to inspect and repair, due to their scale and round-the-clock usage. Having the proper size and type of office air conditioning is important to minimise the amount of effort needed to keep the system running smoothly.
The quality of air inside the workplace has a direct effect on productivity. Keeping an environment where employees can function to their fullest potential is important to getting ahead in the business.
