Increase Employee Comfort While Decreasing Your Carbon Footprint

May 06, 2019

Employee comfort is essential to creating a pleasant, productive work environment. However, if your employees are often working outdoors or in a chilly indoor environment, their comfort can seem impossible to maintain. That’s where personal climate control can be extremely valuable. If your employees are able to warm themselves, you won’t need to face the many challenges of creating a comfortable environment for everyone, indoors or out.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Keeping individual employees comfortable, as opposed to heating or cooling an entire room, can significantly reduce your company’s impact on the environment. The U.S. spends 13 percent of its total energy heating and cooling buildings. Unfortunately, much of that warm or cold air ends up in areas where employees aren’t even working, such as near the ceiling, in hallways or in areas not used by employees.

If building owners could reduce their cooling in the summer and heating in the winter by just 4 degrees, greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. could be reduced by as much as 2 percent. Outfit your employees with personal climate control systems and you won’t harm the environment or waste hard-earned dollars controlling the temperature in peripheral areas.

Save Money

Making your business more environmentally friendly could save you big bucks. As an expression of satisfaction with the surrounding environment, human thermal comfort is a condition of mind. That satisfaction varies from person to person. If you’ve ever worked in an office with lots of other employees, you know it’s impossible to find a temperature that pleases everyone. However, you can significantly reduce the cost of heating or cooling — not to mention employee dissatisfaction — by properly equipping your employees with high-tech clothing, chairs equipped with fans or any number of other technologies.

Try Kelvin Coats

Many of the latest technologies designed to maintain employee comfort seem a little far-fetched.
