Beyond Energy Savings: The Benefits of HVAC Upgrades

Having trouble viewing the video? Click here to download it.

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) upgrades can save you money by lowering your energy bill, but the benefits go far beyond that. Research shows that HVAC upgrades boost productivity, reduce absenteeism and increase focus across different facility types.

Productivity. HVAC upgrades in office settings can lead to higher productivity. Better temperature control has been shown to boost productivity by up to $300 per employee per year. And, improved ventilation can increase production by an additional $700 per employee.

Absenteeism. Better HVAC systems can also help to enhance the indoor environment throughout the building, reducing building-related employee healthcare costs by as much as one-third. In schools, research shows that improved indoor air quality can reduce absenteeism by as much as 15 percent.

Focus. Upgrades also can improve focus. The Virginia Polytechnic Institute found that a classroom temperature of 70 degrees and good ventilation results in fewer instances of off-task student behavior. If an HVAC upgrade can help keep kids in a classroom focused, imagine the kind of impact it can have in your facility.
