Air-conditioning maintenance: Avoid the summer simmer

According to long-range predictions made by the Met Office, we are in for another very warm year in the UK and around the globe. Maintaining a cool and comfortable working environment will be crucial to ensuring productivity, and fresh air in the workplace essential to maintaining the health and safety of your staff.

Air-conditioning and ventilation maintenance should never be put on the back-burner, so to speak. Planned preventative facilities maintenance should become a habit. As we head into summer, this becomes all the more important.

The Health and Safety Executive has outlined various negative health effects resulting from insufficient air, or unclean air. These include tiredness, lethargy, headaches, and skin or eye irritation. Fresh, cool air in the workplace, that is free of contaminants, plays an unsung role in increasing productivity. More than this, it is a required standard.

Air-conditioning maintenance will do more than keep your staff happy and healthy during the summer swelter; it will save you money in the long run. Regular facilities maintenance such as this means greater energy efficiency, resulting in a financial saving and a lesser negative impact on the environment.

Voltix Services install and maintain commercial air-conditioning across the UK. When you invest in a modern air-conditioning system, our F-Gas accredited technicians will help you keep your workplace operating at the highest standard.
