Scientists have stated that the temperature of the environment you’re working in has a major impact on productivity and attention span levels. Air conditioning helps to increase alertness, critical thinking and efficiency.
Whether it’s for working at home or in the office, air conditioning can make a big difference and even help to boost productivity levels.
Let’s start off, by finding out what it is about the hot temperatures and humidity that affects the way we work.
When the room is too warm or even hot, it can leave employees feeling sleepy, drained and sluggish – leading them to lack in concentration and even make mistakes. One of the main reason for this is the fact that the body loses salt and fluid when it gets too hot. This can lead to dehydration which makes them feel this way. Extreme symptoms of working in high temperatures consist of; headaches, dizziness, confusion, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting – all of which affect productivity levels.
Air-conditioning systems also help to clean various indoor allergens, including; dust and pollen. These can again impact employee behaviours and concentration levels. For higher employee satisfaction rates, considering an air conditioning system may be the way forward.
The ideal temperature of a comfortable environment is 21-22 degrees Celsius. As soon as the temperature increases (or even drops), performance levels start to fall. An air conditioning system is one of the easiest ways to keep the temperature consistent and at the correct level.
Research shows that employees working in air-conditioned environments had their productivity boosted by 25% compared to those without the system.
Nobody should have to work in an environment that is making them feel dizzy, nauseous or sluggish. Maintaining comfortable and consistent temperature levels can be achieved with air conditioning and, can avoid these things from happening.
