Is Your Commercial HVAC System Reducing Employee Productivity?

Higher employee productivity translates to more business revenue. Therefore, it’s vital to identify all factors that may affect your employees’ performance, including the commercial HVAC system. Here is how your HVAC system can interfere with your workers’ output in Cave Springs, AR.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

Your air conditioner contains an air filter that traps pollutants circulating in your indoor air. When dust and debris clog this filter, it cannot trap pollutants, so they continue circulating in the office space.

Consequently, your workers will start developing issues such as watery eyes, running nose, throat irritations, fatigue and headaches. If any of them has asthma, the pollutants will trigger the asthma symptoms. These problems interfere with the employees’ comfort and concentration.

Consider having a professional change the filter every two to three months. You can also invest in a filter with a high MERV rating. Higher ratings mean the air filter has more efficiency in trapping contaminants.

Unusual Noises

It’s usual for your system to produce soft sounds, especially when you start it. However, loud noises are abnormal and indicate your unit needs attention.

The sounds may vary depending on what is causing them. For instance, a banging noise may mean some parts are loose, while a hissing sound may be due to a refrigerant leak.

Loud noises can be disturbing to your employees, especially when they’re not used to them. Switch off your unit immediately after you detect noises you’re not used to and call a service technician for repairs.

This helps to prevent the problem from getting worse. Consider scheduling regular HVAC maintenance to identify system issues before they occur.

Uncomfortable Temperatures

Temperatures may get uncomfortably high in summer. If your office’s air conditioner isn’t performing optimally, the temperatures may shoot up, making it challenging to work on the premises.

Multiple issues, such as refrigerant leaks, dirty coils and leaky ductwork, may cause your system to fail to cool your business premises. One of our service technicians can help pinpoint and repair the issue to restore maximum employee productivity.
