Air conditioning for shops and retail outlets is becoming increasingly important in the UK both in the colder winter months and the warm summer days. Keeping your shop or retail outlet at an ambient temperature year round is a great way to look after your customers as well as making sure your staff are able to work in optimum conditions.
Attract people in to your store
It’s also a great way of attracting people into your store; if it’s cold outside, people naturally want to come in to the heat and if you have an efficient air conditioning system that doesn’t just heat a small space by the door, but heats the whole store, you are much more likely to get people coming into the store to browse.
Conversely, in the summer months when the temperatures in the UK can soar with more and more frequent heat waves, keeping both your staff and customers cool on those warm days is another great way to get people in to your store and browsing. Once people are in your store, they are much more likely to be attracted to special promotions and products.
Happy staff means happy customers
One of the big benefits of keeping your shop or retail outlet at an ambient temperature year round is the happiness of your staff. Customer service in retail stores is vital in converting browsers into customers and making sure your staff are not too hot or cold plays a big part in this. If you have grumpy staff because they are too warm or cold, or worse, if you have staff that are off sick, you are unlikely to be delivering the best customer service.
Keeping your shop and retail space at the right temperature can have a huge impact on the well-being and attitude of your staff so keep them happy with an air conditioning unit from D-Air.
One final benefit of installing air conditioning in your shop or retail outlet is the energy performance of modern systems. Store owners are now required to commit to reducing energy emissions and an energy efficient air conditioning system is a great way of helping reduce your footprint and cutting your bills. Many stores rely on energy inefficient heaters which only serve to heat a small area and in the summer rely on a few fans placed around the store. An energy efficient air conditioning system can have a huge impact on reducing your energy bills throughout the year as well as reducing your footprint.
