As a business owner and employer, it's your responsibility to provide a clean, comfortable, and most importantly healthy environment for your employees to work in.

Having ineffective air conditioning in your office can cause illness in your employees simply by the chemicals and germs getting circulated around the office.

All of these are avoidable by simply installing or upgrading your existing office air conditioning unit. Doing this could improve the health of your workforce, which will results in fewer sick days, happier staff and potential increase productivity in employees!

When a person feels too hot or too cold, their body uses energy trying to regulate their temperature which takes energy away from other tasks, such as cognitive functions. If the office air conditioning is too hot or too cold, employees don't function at optimal capacity and are at greater risk of developing colds, flu, headaches, allergies and other health problems.

When someone feels either too hot or too cold, their body uses up energy in order to regulate the overall temperature of their body. This energy is taken away from other parts of the body, so the person is left feeling tired from the extra energy burn. Given that the air conditioning in the office is too hot or cold, employees won't function at an optimal level. This increases the amount of risk of employees developing the following:

  • Flu
  • Headaches
  • Colds
  • Allergies

As well as boosting employee health, a good air conditioning system has a number of benefits:

Office air conditioning regulates the temperature so it's at a comfortable level. Employees in the office will no longer need to wrap up in summer and sweat in the wintertime.

In environments that use pollutants such as chemicals, office air conditioning units can actually remove the harmful air particles, boosting employee health.

An increase in productivity and a decrease in sick days means happier employees as they benefit from healthier, cleaner air.

Air conditioning in the office can prevent the spread of germs and bugs, resulting in boosts for your employees.
