Ideal Conditions in Your Palm Beach Office

You and your employees spend a lot of time at work; why not make the office as comfortable and as healthy as possible? Because HVAC has a lot to do with indoor comfort, your cooling system is a good place to start.

Don’t Set the Thermostat Too Low

According to the International Facility Management Association, the biggest issue in office comfort is temperature. Many managers believe that 71 degrees is ideal. However, according to a study at Cornell University, a temperature of 77 degrees increased productivity by 150 percent and decreased typing errors by 44 percent. OSHO recommends an office temperature between 68 and 76 degrees and a humidity level between 20 and 60 percent.

Maintain an Optimal Temperature With a Programmable Thermostat

Instead of fiddling with the thermostat and trying to please everyone, get your employees to agree on a comfortable indoor temperature. Invest in a programmable thermostat and set it to maintain that temperature during regular business hours. Program the device to cut back on the AC during non-business hours to save on cooling costs.

Keep Indoor Air Quality High

Many commercial buildings in Palm Beach are tightly sealed to prevent the loss of cooled air. However, insufficient ventilation can cause airborne contaminants to reach high concentrations indoors. The worst case scenario is Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) where indoor air is so polluted that employees get sick. You can keep indoor air fresh and healthy with ventilation systems, air cleaners, air purifiers and UV lights.
