Climate control not only produces a fresh and comfortable living climate, but also has a positive impact on electronic equipment due to air dehumidification. A low degree of atmospheric humidity extends the service life of electronic equipment. A humidity degree of between 40% and 60% is considered optimal.
There is a close relationship between productivity/work performance and the temperature in a working environment. A workplace that is too hot, too cold or too humid stimulates neither the work rhythm nor the efficiency of personnel.
The diagram shows this correlation. Work performance decreases with an indoor temperature of above 22°C and declines dramatically with temperatures above 26°C. That is why it is important to maintain control of indoor temperatures. Note: ‘effective temperature’ also includes the humidity level.
It has been scientifically proven that:
- Accidents happen more often in extreme temperatures, with the ideal temperature being around 20°C.
- Mental resilience and work rhythm decreases significantly once it becomes too hot in the workplace.
- Creating a comfortable and efficient building requires the usage of the space to be taken into consideration.
