Six in ten Brits demand air conditioning while working from home, survey finds

According to a recent study, more than 60% of Brits want their bosses to provide air conditioning while working from home.

On average, productivity is said to decrease by a third during hot temperatures, with 44% of the 2,000 adults asked admitting they struggle to stay on top of their workload when the mercury soars.

Two in five respondents actively seek a different room or area to work in a bid to overcome warmer conditions, while a quarter confessed to sitting near an open fridge or freezer!

A similar proportion of those surveyed have previously refused to work when the heat has been too extreme, with a temperature of 28⁰C commonly cited as being too hot for general exertion.

Replacement cooling hire keeps data centre online during system upgrade

Data centres and server rooms are among the most temperature-sensitive applications around, so there can be no room for error when it comes to ensuring that climate control systems are operating properly.

This means conducting regular maintenance which should include the frequent replacement of filters, coils and the cleaning of drains and other components. Many cooling solutions will also comprise of direct expansion (DX) units, which function by cooling indoor air using condensed refrigerant liquid. These, too, will also need to be replaced from time to time to help preserve the longevity and performance of a fixed air conditioning system.

While ventilation remains a key consideration for all close contact services, we have also noticed a spike in air conditioning enquiries as companies look ahead to the summer.

A well-known salon with multiple branches in London recently contacted us to gain a better perspective of the cooling options available to them. Explaining that space was extremely limited and that low-noise equipment was essential, Andrews’ local expert recommended our Polar Wind portable air conditioners.

TV production allowed to continue thanks to ventilation hire

With more and more industries returning to a form of normality under new guidelines, we are seeing businesses make necessary adaptions to the way they operate in order to thrive in the current climate.

As a result, a new Code of Practice has been drawn up which outlines essential measures that networks and broadcasters must take going forward. Scientific research has demonstrated the importance of filming environments benefitting from multiple air changes per hour, reducing the likelihood of airborne viruses transmitting between people working at close quarters.

Andrews Air Conditioning Hire assists Charlton Athletic with pre-season preparations

With overwhelmingly hot conditions making Charlton’s gymnasium and indoor training facilities uncomfortably hot for players during their pre-season workouts, an air conditioning solution was required to help restore temperatures to a more comfortable level.

The players were undergoing various fitness tests at their Eltham training ground, with a cooler environment required to ensure their schedules were not impacted in any way.

A club representative contacted us to explain the problem before an expert from our local depot visited the training ground to assess which equipment would be most suitable.
