Why Your Business Needs Ducted A/C

  • Monday, 23rd November, 2015

The best way for you and your employees to survive the Queensland heat is ducted air conditioning. Studies have shown that the levels of humidity and the temperature within the workplace have a direct impact on the levels of productivity and concentration spans of employees.

If a room temperature is too hot, it is likely to have a negative effect on employees by making them feel drowsy; as a result their levels of concentration decrease massively. On the other end of the temperature spectrum, if the workplace is too cold then it has been demonstrated that this coolness can led to illnesses and subsequent sick days.

With ducts and internal units entirely hidden, ducted air conditioners are generally the best looking units. Even though they tend to be more expensive, they are still the best option if you have a large commercial space. If you think this unit would be the best fit for your business, think about the type of ceiling you have. Ducted systems can be retrofitted if you have a suspended ceiling, meaning that your business will suffer the least amount of downtime.
