Airflow can be a crucial contributor to productivity for your office. Unfortunately, depending on the climate and variability of what people are comfortable with, it can be difficult to find a common ground. As a general rule, here are some tips on improving your office’s airflow, as well as a few general contributors what impacts air flow.
Open doors and windows
These will be massive contributors. Consider how hot or cold it is outside, as well as if you have any in-office fans set up. Leaving doors open throughout the office will allow the office to settle and mitigate each room’s overall temperature.
Vents and air conditioning units
How do these impact air flow? Their viability will create your work environment. Without an effective air conditioning unit, you will see your air flow deteriorate rapidly.
Cleaning your AC unit – This is the bottom line for most offices to see a drastic change. Regardless of who does it, someone has to go in there and clean out the unit from time to time. Without this routine maintenance and upkeep, you won’t just see your air flow diminish, but the effectiveness of heating as well. It may not seem to have a big impact now, but on those summer days when it’s as hot as ever, you’ll need the unit running in tip-top shape.
Assessing damages – Damage is common for ac units to come up, but in most cases, cleaning it will resolve the minor issues over time. However, if you aren’t seeing those kind of results, there may be a deeper issue at play.
Amending damages on your own vs acquiring professional assistance
Professional assistance isn’t always necessary. In most cases, you’ll find a general sweep of the unit will improve air flow and allow for a more efficient product. However, in those few cases where it becomes a larger issue, professional assistance is a great place to start.
