Now that spring is well and truly upon us and the weather outside is warming up by the day, many businesses throughout the UK will be looking at ways to ensure that they keep their premises adequately cool and well ventilated. Opening the windows can help improve the flow of air coming through the office; however the best way to ensure that you have a constant comfortable temperature throughout the day is by installing natural ventilation systems available through your local air conditioning specialists.
What is Natural Ventilation?
Through natural ventilation, the hot air rises naturally, escaping through installed vents within ceilings, walls and window frames, whilst the cool air is drawn in through the vents.
If you’re looking for a natural ventilation system, there are two forms to consider – wind driven and stack ventilation; both of which are guaranteed to provide your premises with a comfortable environment throughout the year.
Both of these systems allow the air to move naturally around the property, supplying each room with an adequate and comfortable temperature, ensuring your staff can work in a comfortable and cool environment throughout the hot summer months – and a warm environment throughout the cold winter.
Benefits of Natural Ventilation Systems:
Both the wind driven and stack ventilation systems are guaranteed to provide your building with a range of benefits including:
• Reduction in Energy Costs –it’s estimated that natural ventilation systems can save a property anywhere between 10% and 30% of the building’s energy consumption; which in a time when energy bills are constantly increasing is ever important.
• Little to no maintenance – due to the system requiring no filters, pumps or fans it requires little to no maintenance; meaning once it has been installed you won’t be paying out for any other costs anytime soon.
• Reduction in Health Issues – it’s widely accepted that air conditioning units increase the bacteria and germs being transferred throughout an office environment, causing the sickness rates to increase. Due to the mechanisms behind natural ventilation, the risk of germs being carried throughout the air is dramatically reduced.
So before the hot weather takes its toll on your office or home, why not contact your local heating and air conditioning specialists, to take advantage of the fantastic array of natural ventilation systems which will see a comfortable and constant temperature flow throughout your property all year round, without costing your business a small fortune.
