Building temperature may seem like a minor detail that doesn’t mean much for your business. But the temperature of your commercial building can affect more than you’d think. For example, it can have the following adverse effects: Lower Productivity Nobody likes to work in hot, muggy conditions or freezing cold conditions. When workers feel uncomfortably overheated or chilly, they work less productively. Increase Errors Extreme temperatures can distract your workers, and distracted workers will make more mistakes than focused ones. This can negatively affect the quality of your products; it can also increase instances of accidents in the workplace. Spoil Products If you work with perishable products or products that are sensitive to high or low temperatures, you risk spoiling them without a working HVAC system in place. Foods and plastics can melt in a hot building, while the cold can cause certain materials, like concrete, metal, and vinyl, to become brittle and break. Overheat Machines Hot temperatures can also overheat machines. This can lead to unexpected downtime and repair costs. Don’t risk worker productivity and the quality of your products. A functioning, high-quality heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can help you maintain your building’s temperature and keep your business running smoothly.
