Office Temperature Complaints
According to the International Facilities Management Association, the number one complaint in Office Buildings is temperature.
Why is temperature such a problem in office buildings?
Most Office Buildings are built with convection – forced air – systems. These systems are constantly fighting the laws of physics, as hot air naturally rises and the only solution these systems can provide is to blow even more hot air.
Many Office Buildings spend their days fighting the Sun and their nights attempting to bring the building back to equilibrium, only to begin the never ending battle again the next day. As the Sun beats down on one or two sides of the Office Building, the other two sides remain in the shade.
Constant adjustments to the building’s single convection system – turn the temperature up, turn the temperature down – result in complaints that the temperature is never just right anywhere in the building.
Conversely, radiant heat directs heat to cold objects rather than heating the air. Electric radiant heating systems are designed to provide the right temperature at the right time in every part of your Office Building.
Our systems dramatically reduce complaints by providing warmth and comfort when and where it is needed throughout the Office Building, while generating energy savings by not blowing even more hot air at the problem spots.
We offer several different solutions for Office Buildings:
- Earth Thermal Storage: Our under slab heating system is installed in soil or sand under a concrete slab building foundation. The result is that the ground underneath becomes an efficient, large mass of stored thermal energy. Perfect for new Office Building construction.
- Supplemental Electric Radiant Heating: Our Architectural Series Metal Heaters can be added to any heating system to provide warmth and comfort in those difficult areas where just a little more warmth and comfort is essential. Perfect for both new construction and renovation in Office Buildings to address problem areas.
- Electric Radiant Ceiling Heating Systems: Designed to provide maximum comfort at the absolute lowest cost, there is no wasted heat using SmartRooms Radiant Ceiling Heat System. Installation is simple: electric gypsum panels fit between the ceiling joists above the finished ceiling. A gentle curtain of warmth is then spread evenly throughout the room, now free from drafts and dust. Perfect for both new construction and renovation in Office Buildings.
