Heating Hire

Goodbye air conditioning, hello heating, ventilation and drying!

And just like that, a new, colder and wetter season is upon us! As the temperature changes, so, too, do the requirements of our customers. Colder weather also tends to lead to a rise in relative humidity – which is not something you should just accept or ignore!

What’s the answer, then? Well, it depends on the issue!

At this time of year especially, we tend to get a lot of enquiries from clients in the construction sector looking to accelerate the drying of wet trades, painting, and other finishing touches. By November, we’ll also start to receive a lot of requests for heating as a frost protection measure.

How can companies protect themselves against winter conditions?

As winter approaches, there are many reasons why you may need to consider a temporary heating hire solution. With temperatures starting to plummet across many parts of the UK, we must contemplate how this can affect your company’s staff and operations.

According to UK government guidelines, it is the responsibility of your employer to maintain a ‘reasonable’ temperature in your place of work – and this varies from industry to industry. In 2017, a survey conducted by Andrews Sykes revealed that productivity within an office environment is heavily impacted if temperatures are either too hot or too cold. Up to 80% of those asked admitted to complaining about the temperature of their office, which underlines just how widespread the problem is. These statistics also demonstrate the importance of maintaining the correct conditions which renders a source of heating essential during the winter months.

What should I do following a heating failure?

So, what happens when your heating system is no longer up to the task or breaks down completely? An absence of suitable climate control could jeopardise output and the efficiency with which your staff work, which is a completely undesirable scenario for any business. A solution should therefore be sought as quickly as possible – and it’s easier than you think.
