Air conditioning isn’t something that is a priority for most people in the UK. We don’t have the hottest, most humid climate in the world and we have more cool days than hot by far. So why would anyone pay good money to have air conditioning installed in their business?
If you are just thinking about our climate and the most typical weather patterns it might not make a lot of sense to pay money for a system to make the air even colder. Those few hot summer days we get may not seem to make it worthwhile, but there is more to an air conditioning system than most people realise.
Air conditioning for temperature control
Air conditioning can help with temperature control in several ways:
- Obviously in warm climates, air conditioning is used to cool the air down so employees are more comfortable while working.
- Most air conditioners will also warm the air if necessary, so they are equally useful in cooler climates.
- Maintaining a comfortable and steady temperature means that employees can work comfortably regardless of the weather outside.
Air conditioning for allergy relief
Even our mild climate offers a lot of pollen and other air toxins that contribute to allergic reactions such as sneezing or itchy, watery eyes. Removing these allergens from the air can make your employees more comfortable and therefore more productive throughout the hayfever seasons.
Many air conditioning systems incorporate filtration systems that remove pollen and other allergens from the air prior to pumping the air back into your building. This means you get the benefit of clean air in the office as well as temperature control.
Air conditioning for fresh air
The air you breathe in with air conditioning is very different from the air you would breathe in without an AC system. Without fresh air pumping through your building the air will become stale and possibly even unhealthy. Air conditioning supplies and distributes a constant supply of fresh air throughout your offices, which helps employees to stay alert and be at their most productive.
This freshness comes from the lack of allergens and other pollutants as well as the coolness of the air. The fresh air will improve the mood and happiness off your employees and make your working environment more pleasant overall.
It doesn’t really matter how mild the climate may be here in the UK. If you want to create a comfortable working environment that keeps your employees productive and focused, you do need an air conditioning system in your offices. The good news is that these days air conditioning units are a lot less expensive and a lot more energy efficient than they used to be.
