Improved, energy-efficient office design could bolster productivity

Improving office design and overall energy efficiency could also help business drastically improve their overall productivity, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

Air quality improvement, natural light and more spacious office buildings can have a significant impact on the health, well-being and productivity of its occupants, according to the World Green Building Council.

That can have a positive impact on a company’s bottom line by improving employee productivity and reducing absenteeism, staff turnover and medical costs.

For example, indoor air quality is improved when low volatile organic compound (VOC) materials are used in offices and the life cycle environmental impact of low VOC materials are lower than traditional materials. Increased daylighting reduces electrical loads, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the report states.

The report also shows there is an average 6% fall in staff performance if offices are too hot and a 4% drop if they are too cold as well as a 101% increase in cognitive scores for workers in a green and well-ventilated workspace.

HeatSave wireless TRVs – helping office buildings become more energy efficient

In terms of implementing energy efficiency projects, wireless programmable thermostatic radiator valves offer the best ROIs and lowest overall installation costs. The HeatSave wireless TRVs enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve, and, since radiators are individually controlled, occupants are fully capable to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used for longer periods of time (as for example, dining or sitting rooms and kitchens during the night, etc.).

Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.

All in all, the HeatSave TRVs enable users to achieve some pretty impressive savings, as they will help reduce your heating bills by up to 30%, especially when coupled with the HeatingSave Building Energy Management System.
