Is there anything worse than working in a hot office during the height of the summer? If you’re feeling the effects of the summer heat, keep reading the latest post from Air Conditioning Direct, we discuss top tips for keeping cool in the hot weather.
Windows Open or Windows Closed?
During the warm weather, we all like to feel a cooling breeze, however, the age-old debate of throwing the windows open or keeping them firmly closed still persists.
To keep your inside space as cool as possible, only open the windows if the air outside cooler, otherwise you’re in danger of simply letting more hot air into the room. What’s more, if you have your air conditioning switched on, opening the windows will only serve to let the cool air out – not something you want to do in a stifling office environment
Making use of aluminium bottles that keep your drinks cool for the entirety of your working day is a great way of ensuring a fresh beverage whenever you need one. If you don’t have an aluminium bottle, make sure you have a bottle of water on your desk and another in the fridge which can be easily grabbed when needed. What’s more, if your office environment becomes uncomfortable, you can use the other bottle as a cooler, placing on your lap on behind your back on your office chair.
Whilst there is no temperature at which employers need to send their employees home, health and safety law must be abided by – this includes ensuring that the temperature is at a comfortable level with access to fresh and clean air.
If you are concerned about the temperature of your working environment is too hot, you should address this with your employer.
Air conditioning can make a big difference to the temperature of a room and can be tailored to suit the size of the room they are situated in.
