The average person spends 90 percent of their life in an indoor environment, such as an office, a vehicle or a house. As we spend a significant part of our lives in these areas, the temperature and level of comfort we experience directly affects our quality of life.
Today, workers are becoming increasingly stressed. Fast-paced work environments and rising temperatures during the summer months have confined many people to air-conditioned environments. However, prolonged exposure to artificial coolness can cause health problems, fatigue and declining attention spans at work.
Research on improving quality of life has shown that cooler environments have positive effects while hotter environments have negative effects. This is especially true during summer months.
