Productivity in the Air
Why air-conditioners are essential to business and performance
• Technology has changed the workplace in incredible ways
• Temperature and humidity have a measurable impact on performance
• Overall business efficiency is enhanced through air-conditioning
Technology has shaped our lives in extraordinary ways. In under a century, we’ve transformed our reality with the rise of the internet, smartphones to electric cars, biological engineering, artificial intelligence and even augmented reality. However, sometimes it’s the unseen technological solutions like air-conditioning that makes all the difference, especially in places like busy offices.
A Positive Impact On Workplace Productivity
Scientists have agreed that the temperature and humidity at the workplace has a direct impact on the productivity of employees. If a room is too hot, employees are more likely to feel sleepy with their concentration level dropping dramatically. On the other hand, very low temperature can lead to illnesses and the inevitable longer sick leave days. Ultimately, employees need to keep awake and focused longer and ideally the room should be cooled to temperatures around 20 or 21 degrees*.
Enhancing Energy Efficiency
Air-conditioning technology is constantly evolving and fortunately they are also becoming ever more energy efficient. They are now able to efficiently cool or heat a building. This provides a constant and comfortable temperature, minimising energy use, reducing costs and of course carbon footprint.
Creating a Healthier Workplace
Busy offices can be a breeding ground for coughs and colds. While the cold may make you more susceptible to illness, a common cold is caused by bacteria, not cold temperatures. This is where technology like Samsung’s Wind-Free™ air-conditioner helps. It has a filter that captures dust, dangerous contaminants and allergens thanks to its Virus Doctor. This helps you eliminate harmful viruses and bacteria, contributing to health and wellbeing in winter and summer.
Protecting Business Critical Equipment
From servers to computers, modern workplaces are jam packed with technology that generates heat. This heat needs to be removed from the environment as delicate equipment can only operate within certain tolerance levels. Cleverly designed air conditioning systems take away this heat and humidity, dispersing this energy where it’s needed, ensuring business critical equipment is safe.
Reducing Humidity Makes a Difference
No one likes to feel hot and sticky at work. It can lower productivity and make the office environment feel hotter than it actually is. Air-conditioning systems simply remove the excess moisture from the air to eliminate ‘stickiness’ which is unwelcome factor when workplaces can already be a stressful place.
“Technology drives business forward. That’s why; we’re committed to the relentless pursuit of innovation that makes every day, that much better. Air-conditioners are a wonderful example of technology that makes a real difference in offices and homes,” says Robert Larkan, Head of Digital Air Solutions at Samsung South Africa.
Through the power of innovative technology, we can create environments better suited to the enhanced level of productivity required in modern business. The air-conditioner is clearly a breath of fresh air in so many ways.
