Open Up The Windows

A simple solution for a stuffy office, opening up closed windows will allow cool air to travel into the room, immediately making the space less humid. The added benefits of opening up windows within cramped rooms is obvious in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, with ventilation introducing fresh air into indoor spaces while removing air which may contain virus particles. Appropriate ventilation can also reduce mould.

Dress For The Weather 

In anticipation for warmer weather, dressing appropriately can make for a much comfier day in the office. Ditching jumpers, blazers and thick coats in favour of thinner material may make for a more relaxing day sat at your desk. If the office dress-code allows it, loose-fitting clothing is advisable, though you should remain mindful of the do’s and don'ts of office wear. 

Invest In An Air Conditioning Unit

Air conditioning units function by removing the warm air from inside your home and pumping it outside. By releasing the cool air back into the room an air con system can reduce the temperature and improve working conditions for everyone on a hot day. A crucial addition to most offices, we can ensure that the system you choose works in accordance with your specific requirements at a manageable cost, with aircon installation available.

Stay Hydrated

The NHS recommends that during humid weather conditions, you should drink plenty of fluids. Drinking lots of water not only reduces your chances of becoming dehydrated, but also cools you down. Devoid of added sugars, salts, and additives, pure water is what the human body needs to function. Avoiding drinks that contain caffeine or alcohol is advisable, as these types of beverage stimulate the production of urine, leading to dehydration.
