Keeping offices cool
Ensuring your office-based people stay productive at work is crucial to the success of your business. Everyone experiences difficulties when trying to concentrate in a hot, stuffy working environment. There is a close correlation between excessive temperature and a decline in our productivity and general well-being. Accidents, mistakes, low morale and increased absenteeism all occur more frequently in extremes of temperature, with most people feeling comfortable in a temperature of 18-21°C and a relative humidity of 40%-60%. That’s why more and more owners and managers of offices and meeting places are turning to Andrews Sykes and discovering the impressive financial benefits of ensuring a comfortable, air conditioned environment.
Let us help you be fully prepared by providing a free site survey to establish exactly what your cooling requirements are.
Modern offices are increasingly filled with electrical and electronic equipment generating large quantities of heat. Many commercial buildings, particularly in our towns and cities, no longer have opening windows for reasons of security or noise insulation. Although permanently installed air conditioning is increasingly common in modern offices, it is rare in older properties. Even if AC is fitted, changes to the building’s use, occupation levels or layout often render the fitted system inadequate for the current cooling requirements. These problems are bad enough even without a spell of hot weather, so when the sun does come out, discomfort can quickly turn into an unbearably hot situation.
Before this happens in your office, why not arrange a free, no-obligation site survey and quotation from Andrews? We’ll advise you on the most suitable equipment from our extensive range, whether it’s fully integrated, standalone air conditioners, split systems which enable the heat exchanger to be located outdoors, or evaporative coolers which avoid the need for any tubes or hoses. We will also agree the best locations for the equipment to maximise the degree of cooling performance with minimal cost.
Even if your main working area usually remains acceptably cool, many offices have server rooms which generate additional heat. Computer equipment will fail in excessive temperatures so ask our business continuity planning experts about how our hire air conditioners can deliver supplementary cooling during hot weather, or provide emergency replacement in the event of your fixed AC breaking down.
Productive meetings clearly rely on attendees remaining engaged and fully focussed on the matters being discussed. People’s ability to concentrate and remain productive is adversely affected if they feel uncomfortably hot. Meeting rooms often have large areas of glazing which create rapid solar heat gain. In multi-storey or city centre buildings these windows are often fixed closed, preventing the use of natural ventilation. Meeting rooms are also often used intensively with high occupancy rates. Lots of people in a confined space can quickly cause temperatures and humidity to soar.
Temporary air conditioning is the ideal way to keep those important meetings cool, calm and productive. Andrews Sykes portable air conditioners are designed to deliver high performance whilst operating quietly and energy-efficiently. All our machines are discreetly designed and simple to use. To ensure complete reliability all units are fully tested before delivery and our engineers will install them, making sure you know exactly how to use them. We’ll advise on the correct choice for you – from our small integrated Polar Breeze and Polar Wind units, to our market leading 6.5kW PAC22 model and a comprehensive range of evaporative coolers.
So no matter how heated the meeting may get, you can be sure to stay cool with Andrews Sykes temporary air conditioning.
