The summer is coming and temperatures are set to be high once again this year. June and July will be the hottest months, and we can expect highs of around 30 degrees celsius again. Here are some of the ways high temperatures can affect your business:

Employee productivity

The ideal workplace temperature is mostly estimated at between 21 and 24 degrees celsius (69.8 – 75.2F). Above 24 degrees, however, the average worker’s productivity begins to decline. In one study, students were asked to choose which out of two mobile phone plans was the more cost-effective. Some of the students were in a cool room (19°C / 66F), while the others were in a warm room (25°C / 77F). The success rate of the students in the cooler room was double that of those in the warmer room, demonstrating that warm temperatures make complex decisions more difficult.

Other studies show that we are not as good at mathematics in temperatures above 27°C (80.6F). In Australia, where summer temperatures are often over 30 degrees, overall productivity decline costs the national economy roughly 6.2 billion US dollars. If businesses in the UK want to avoid a sharp downfall in productivity from their employees this summer, they will need to do more than just keep the windows open.

Computer systems and servers

Another big danger that high temperatures pose to businesses is the potential disruption of office computer systems and servers. Computers, of course, need to be kept from overheating, but their inbuilt fans can only do so much. When external temperatures rise higher than 27°C (80°F), computer performance is affected, slowing down processing speed and delaying even everyday office tasks like word processing and email.

The solution

The best way to avoid a decline in employee productivity and server disruption this summer, then, is to install our state-of-the-art Fujitsu air conditioning. We use air source heat pump technology which is just as effective at cooling as it is at heating. It is also highly efficient, cutting down on energy consumption and saving you money. We provide full installation and maintenance, and a 5-year warranty is included. Even if you are just looking for something to get your business through the hot summer months, we can provide for your needs. Our systems are available to rent monthly, too.

Quality air conditioning is guaranteed to improve your business’s performance this summer. Take it from Singapore’s first prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew. When asked in 1999 what was responsible for the tropical country’s economic success, he replied air conditioning. For our range of air conditioning products, contact us directly.

I can unconditionally recommend Inn-House Technology Ltd as a thoroughly excellent provider of all aspects of domestic air conditioning from initial contact, design development, through detailed site work to contract administration and on to maintenance. I speak as a hard-bitten Chartered Engineer and project manager who has probably seen it all; but Inn-House Technology has restored my faith that there is a British company which does it right to time, cost and quality. The initial site visit was by an experienced technician who has turned his hand to sales and was followed up by a further detailed visit with a staff specialist because the 4-unit multi-split installation is in a high-quality residence so that pipe concealment and silence in operation are crucial – and achieved. The two-man team left home at 0555 to arrive exactly on time for 3 consecutive days fully supplied with all the tools and plant required from their preferred but not exclusive partner supplier – Fujitsu. All indoor debris from numerous drillings was cleaned up as soon as it arose causing negligible dust- even embroidered curtains were kept in place. No shoes were worn indoors. The quality and fit of the pipework, cabling and trunking was exemplary and the indoor units were positioned exactly as specified. Outside, the wall penetrations and resealing of this Passivhaus were accurate and the heat pump connections neatly concealed by a black trunking beside a downpipe. The two installers, Jim and Sam, were professional, knowledgeable, personable, strong, agile and 100% committed to my job – not once stopping for lunch. The back-office handling of the sales, contract, procurement, invoicing and maintenance were each impeccable and the team are clearly loyal to their company which has strong systems to give quick response and confidence to the customer. The whole installation experience was an exemplar of how to run a company well and I have no hesitation at all in recommending Inn-House Technology.

Excellent and Faultless Experience with our Air Con Install. We reached out to I-HT among other Installers in the area, within a couple of hours they had made contact and arranged to visit to provide a quote within the same day. The quote was sent quickly and competitively priced. Lee who visited was very friendly and helpful and provided a good insight into what could be done and how with regards to our property. On install day we had 2 of their team pop out to complete the install and I can't explain enough how polite, friendly and considerate they were. Not only this but they were also very tidy and cleaned up behind them at every step. The day after I also had a follow up call from the office to make sure we were happy. overall 10/10 and can't believe how simple and perfect the install went. Thank you so much and look forward to recommending them to everyone in the future!
