How does air conditioning enhance workplace
One of the biggest challenges faced by employers is ensuring
that they keep their workers productive. Fortunately, help is at
hand in an unlikely form! Surprisingly an air conditioning
system can greatly enhance worker productivity. But how
Well, there are three main ways:
Let's take a look at them...
P H Y S I C A L
The first consideration is perhaps the most obvious: the extent to which
a hot office impacts your employees ability to work. A hot, sticky office
takes its toll on the human body; both heat and humidity can have a
significant impact on concentration levels.
The same is true of environments which are excessively cold. If your
staff spend all of their time shivering and rubbing their hands together,
they are unlikely to be able to focus on their respective tasks. This has
since been backed up with hard science. A study at Cornell University
concluded that lowering office temperatures by just five degrees from
room temperature (25 degrees Celsius) increases an employees
propensity to make mistakes by as much as 44%.
Air conditioning prevents both of these occurrences. By keeping your
work environment at a stable temperature, you can thereby ensure that
your staff can concentrate consistently and be more productive as a

The second consideration is more subtle than the first. It centres on the
effect a properly air-conditioned workplace can have on the morale of
those who work in it.
One of the best ways to ensure a productive workplace is to ensure that
all of its staff are kept happy. Happiness (or a lack of it) is highly
contagious weve all at some point been trapped in a room with a
desperately glum person and found ourselves feeling down, as if the
mood is contagious. Similarly, most of us have at one point or other felt a
little despondent and then encountered a relentlessly upbeat person who
lifts our sprits a little.
Studies have demonstrated repeatedly that happier, more enthusiastic
workers are more productive ones. By providing your staff with a
comfortable, air-conditioned working environment, you give them one
more reason to be cheerful and so go one step further to creating the
high-morale atmosphere which is so key to productivity.

Finally, its worth considering the fact that investing in an air-conditioning
system sends a message of goodwill to your employees. It demonstrates
that you care about their wellbeing and that you value their continued
good health. Employees who feel that their employer is invested in their
welfare are more likely to reciprocate by working harder. If you value your
workforce and are grateful for their contributions to your business, then
there are few better ways of saying this than by investing in an air-
