We see our Auckland heat pumps as providers of warmth in winter, cool air in summer and enhanced workplace productivity all year round. That’s because it is widely recognised that working in comfortable temperatures will boost staff morale and their output. Heat pumps are by the far the most affordable and convenient way to make that happen.
As an employer, you need to do all you can to give your employees a comfortable environment. One study found that the average employee is only productive for 2 hours and 53 minutes every day! With that startling statistic in mind, you might want to revisit the working conditions at your business – getting the temperature right is the perfect start.
A study carried out by the University College London found that it is hard to nail it down to an exact number but somewhere between 22 and 24°C is a good range for keeping employees comfortable and focused on the task at hand.
Another study we’ve seen shows that productivity can drop by as much as four per cent per degree when temperatures rise above 27°C. This is something to keep in mind now that spring and summer are upon us.
Yet another piece of research done in America looked at productivity in the winter months. They found that when the temperature in an office is increased from 20°C to 25°C, error rates fall by 44%, while the output can be expected to skyrocket by 150%! When it comes to summer, the highest productivity level occurs around 22°C, which backs up the optimum range of 22 to 24°C put forward by the University College London.
You have a lot to gain by providing a comfortable temperature for your employees, and just as much to lose when things are too cold, or too hot. While getting to a productivity-boosting temperature is one thing, maintaining it is another. We have the answer in the form of our world-leading heat pump technology.
Heat pumps are the most energy-efficient way to cool and heat a space and once the desired temperature has been reached, they are also the best method of maintaining that temperature so there are no unhealthy fluctuations. A Panasonic inverter heat pump would be the perfect investment as it operates far more efficiently than most heat pumps on the market, making it even more affordable to heat or cool your office.
