Is your office too hot or too cold? Here are four tips to keep office temperatures consistent.
How do you know it might be time to call in commercial services? If your employees are complaining that the office temperatures are too hot, too cold, or inconsistent, it could be time to make the call.
It is pretty hard to keep everyone happy when it comes to optimum temperature. Someone is always too hot or too cold. Even the professionals can’t agree with “perfect” temperature estimates ranging from 68-77 degrees Fahrenheit.
But if the office temperatures are consistent, employees know what to expect and how to dress. Here are four tips to help maintain office temperature.
#1 Inspect Ducts and Vents
Have your ducts and vents inspected by a professional regularly. Dust, debris, or damage all affect the airflow of the HVAC system. There might even be an animal presence. What better place and a nice warm heating duct to make a cozy nest?
#2 Update Your HVAC System
Consider updating or expanding the system to meet your office needs. If you have a dated system, it will not run efficiently – a newer, more efficient system will save money in the long run.
#3 Install “Smart” Thermostats
New, “smart” thermostats are much more accurate. They are programmable and allow you to make adjustments for a variety of factors such as sunlight and usage.
#4 Regular Service Maintenance
As a business owner, it is to your benefit to keep the indoor air quality fresh and clean for your employees. This leads to better productivity, fewer sick days, and general office well-being.
Scheduling regular service of the HVAC system will maintain better air quality, more consistent temperatures, and assure that the system functions at optimum levels for a longer time. All of this improves your employees’ productivity and your bottom line.
