When you’re working out of your home office in your Springdale, Arkansas, house, the indoor air quality and temperature can impact your ability to stay productive and focused. With the right HVAC and indoor air quality products, you can make your home office more comfortable and take it to the next level.
If your home office starts to get too warm, you may notice that you start to feel sleepy, which makes it more difficult to focus on your tasks. A home office that’s too cold also isn’t very pleasant, since you might be shivering and shaking at your desk. Getting up constantly throughout the day to adjust the temperature on the thermostat can interrupt your flow and make it more challenging to finish your work for the day. By switching yourtraditional thermostat to a smart thermostat, you can transform the way you manage the indoor temperature while minimizing energy waste.
A smart thermostat is connected to your Wi-Fi, offering access from anywhere at any time. Simply open the app on your smartphone or tablet to adjust the temperature or track usage. Many smart thermostats have built-in features to automatically adjust the indoor temperature based on climate shifts and swings outside. These units also have motion sensors to determine when people are in the home versus when they’re away and can change the temperature when no movement is detected.
If you want your home office cooler or warmer than the rest of your home, then you should consider installing a ductless AC system. You can effectively control the temperature in your office using the ductless mini-split’s thermostat. Ductless systems improve your energy efficiency and enhance your comfort. They improve your energy efficiency because they don’t require ductwork to be installed, so you won’t have to worry about leaky ducts. In addition, you have more control over your comfort because you can set the thermostat to your preferred temperature. You can avoid fighting over your home’s temperature with your family.
Poor air quality is a problem impacting all types of buildings around the nation. When you think of bad air, your mind probably jumps to the smog and pollution outside, but what you’re breathing in your own home is often substantially worse. During a day in the home office, poor air quality can cause symptoms like congestion, eye irritation, sore throats, and coughing. Using an air purifier in your home can make a big difference in the quality of the air you breathe. Options include single-room tabletop units or whole-home purifiers that work with the HVAC system.
