Four Tips to Prepare Your Office for Summer

With the days getting longer and the weather warmer, it’s safe to say that summer is well on its way - and that means it’s time to start thinking about getting your office ready for summer. Without the correct equipment and measurements in place, hot and humid weather can be a real struggle for office workers, and the office can feel unbearable to work in. 

No matter how pleasant your office is, when the sun starts shining, it’s important that you have everything in place to combat hot weather and create a comfortable working space for your employees. 

Here are our four top tips for preparing your office for summer. 

Provide water coolers throughout your building 

Staying hydrated is crucial when it’s hot outside, and dehydration is one of the worst effects of summer heat. Make sure you provide enough cool filtered water for everyone throughout your building - this includes employees, clients and any visitors too. People should always have access to cold water to keep them cool, hydrated and focused.

Relax the dress code 

While we understand this isn’t possible for every business, try to relax the dress code where possible. Strict dress codes that are followed even on the hottest days of the year can leave employees feeling hot, bothered and uncomfortable. Instead, relaxing your dress code during summer and allowing employees to dress comfortably and casually can make a huge difference to productivity levels. 

Reduce your energy use

Reducing your energy usage is not only good for the environment, but it can help contribute to a more comfortable work environment too. Light bulbs give off more energy than you likely realise; simply turning them off can make a big difference to the temperature of your office. Make sure all lights are turned off in rooms that are not being used - and if you have enough natural light, keep them off in other areas too. This will ensure that rooms are always cool and ready to use. 

Service your air conditioning unit 

With warm weather on its way, it’s important that your air conditioning unit is in top condition. A poorly-maintained air conditioner can lead to a multitude of problems, from high energy bills to a hot, stuffy office with poor air quality. 

It’s important to get your air conditioning unit serviced before summer arrives. A professional air conditioning maintenance company can clean out dust, change the filter and check the overall condition of your unit. They’ll be able to detect and repair any damages before they get worse, ensuring that you’re all ready for the hot weather with a cool and comfortable working space.
