The benefits of air-conditioning for homeworking

With home working becoming the new normal following the Coronavirus pandemic, many people are considering home improvements and their home comfort.

Between January and December 2019, around 1.7 million people worked from home. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, that number has increased to 4 million (source Office of National Statistics).

With no end in sight to the pandemic, homeworking is becoming an essential part of life coupled with organisations accepting the benefits to employees including saving commuting time and being more flexible in their approach to work.

Furthermore, technology is changing the way we all work, and with working from home a practical and referable solution, the work environment still remains important and a high-quality air conditioner in the home can help maintain a good temperature and ultimately comfort.

For many, efficient, new build properties do a great job at keeping homes warm in the colder months of the year but can be uncomfortably hot during the summer. Cooling the property by opening a window can often result in drawing in more warm air. The use of fans can also circulate warm air with little relief. This can cause sleepiness and humidity, which can directly affect concentration levels making home working conditions difficult. In addition, the attempt to ventilate the home via the opening of windows can increase the glare from the sun causing eye strain, and noise from the outside can break concentration and increase stress levels.

By installing a specialist internal air-conditioning unit, conditions and temperature can be finely balanced. An internal air conditioner can circulate cool, fresh air controlled to the temperature for working best and helping to aid a relaxing working day. This can increase efficiency and overall productivity and comfort.

Studies have demonstrated the benefits of working at the right temperature for many years. Evidence showed that productivity was halved when the optimum room temperature was increased or decreased by 5 degrees centigrade with people making twice as many mistakes.
