Don't Let Your Customers Get Hot and Bothered
Recent media reports have focused on a major department store in Birmingham City Centre, which experienced problems keeping staff and customers cool when its air conditioning failed. The press article titled "Shoppers Fainting in Heatwave" reported that the stores air conditioning broke down as temperatures soared towards 30 degrees C, with customers seen "swooning" from the sweltering heat. People reported that staff had felt ill, with some passing out in the heat. Fans put in place to try and counteract the problem appeared to be insufficient to control the soaring temperatures.
PRA Air Conditioning have delivered effective preventative air conditioning maintenance and servicing schedules for a large range of retail outlets, dental surgeries and office premises. To help retail businesses and leisure facilities keep conditions comfortable for both visiting customers and staff we have put together a specific maintenance program, usually carried out during spring and autumn, but with flexible timeframes to suit. This service is available across the UK including Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Cheltenham, Worcester, Cardiff, Bristol, Devon, Oxford and London. The systems are designed to help prevent the problems experienced by some retail outlets in the recent heatwave across the UK.
As the British Summer goes through a period of more familiar rain, the events of a few weeks ago show that there is no room for complacency. With more hot weather around the corner regular maintenance checks are important, especially with competing businesses all too pleased in the current climate to provide a comfortable environment for your retail customers. More information on air conditioning repairs and maintenance in the UK is available at the PRA air conditioning website
