Air conditioning systems are now ubiquitous in buildings, and for good reason. They help to boost levels of comfort, which in turn will increase productivity and reduce absenteeism. You’ll also notice a marked boost in morale, which will quickly spread through the workplace. Staff are also likely to be far more productive, as they’ll be less likely to be distracted by the stress of being too hot or cold.
As well as considering productivity benefits, it’s worth taking into account the savings that climate control will confer to the building itself and the equipment in it. Failure rates for computers and other key hardware will be influenced by an excess of humidity, as moisture in the air can cause electricity to arc between different circuits. What’s more, air conditioning will protect the building itself damp and other moisture-related problems.
If you’re running a retail building, then the need for comfort will be all the more pressing – since potential customers are unlikely to linger long in an environment that they don’t find comfortable. An air-conditioned environement is likely to provide respite from the world outside, and therefore an opportunity to make more purchases. This isn’t just so in summertime; while we might think of air-conditioners as cooling devices, they’re also able to act as heaters, meaning we can achieve an optimal temperature whatever time of the year it might be.
