Air conditioning installations have become increasingly popular in the UK over the past few years. We are seeing warmer summer temperatures with heatwaves of 30°C and higher becoming the norm in London. More London businesses are starting to invest in air conditioning for this reason. No matter what type of business you run, there are many ways that air conditioning can benefit your London business.
1. Improve Air Quality
One of the greatest benefits of air conditioning is the purification and improvement of indoor air quality. Not only will this benefit staff and customers but can also help to protect the building and your equipment. AC systems purify the air by increasing air circulation, reducing humidity levels, and removing pollutants such as dust and pollen from the air. This will benefit anyone who suffers from allergies or respiratory problems such as hay fever or asthma. This is particularly important in cities such as London where outdoor pollution levels are higher. Noise pollution in cities also means that opening windows for cooler or fresh air isn’t always an option. Improving the air quality and ventilation in the workplace promotes a healthy working environment which can have a positive impact on the mood and performance of staff.
Additionally, by maintaining humidity levels, air conditioners help protect your building from damp and mould which can damage the interior of the building as well as pose a health risk. Damp and mould is a common issue in the UK and is particularly hazardous to those with respiratory issues.
2. Protect Electronic Equipment
Many businesses rely on electronic equipment such as computers on a daily basis. Equipment of this nature can be sensitive to heat. High temperatures can cause electronic devices to overheat which causes them to slow down. This can be detrimental to any type of business, especially on busy days. Malfunctioning equipment can lead to loss of business and revenue. If you have data servers on-site, air conditioning is essential to protect your data and equipment.
3. Boost Staff Performance & Morale
Motivated staff are key to any successful business. No one can comfortably work in a hot and stuffy environment. It is only natural that environmental factors such as room temperature can affect the morale of staff. In most cases, heat stress can cause fatigue which can lead to decreased productivity and concentration. In some cases, it can lead to heat exhaustion and dehydration which can impact productivity, health, and safety. This can lead to increased mistakes and potentially affect your customers’ experience.
4. Create A Positive Experience For Clients Or Guests
No matter what type of business you own, it is always important that make a good impression on both staff and clients. Whether you sell products in a retail shop, accommodate guests in a hotel, or host client meetings in your office building, air conditioning can make a big impression. It can even affect your revenue. For example, installing air conditioning in a shop can result in higher footfall and encourage customers to shop for longer. Hotel guests may use air conditioning as a deciding factor on where to stay during the summer months, especially tourists that are used to air-conditioned buildings. Hot and stuffy rooms can also leave a bad impression on guests and result in bad reviews.
