As the crisp autumn breeze gradually turns into chilly winter winds, it’s essential to ensure that your office is prepared for the transition into winter. One key aspect of this preparation is efficient management of your facilities.

Sussex Facilities Management, with our expertise and friendly team, will help to make this transition seamless, ensuring your office remains warm, efficient, and comfortable.

Let’s explore how Sussex Facilities Management can help your office stay cosy and functional during the winter months.

1 – Portable Heaters: Keeping Warmth Within Reach

As the temperature drops, portable heaters may be used to maintain a comfortable working environment.

Our experts will help to inform your team about the correct ways to use space heaters to ensure that safety is kept as a number one priority. Our PAT testing service will check that your space heater is safe to use.

Learn more about space heaters by reading one of our other blogs here.

However, using portable heaters is not the most efficient way to heat your building. If you are using them, it is worth speaking to one of our team about more cost-effective ways to heat your space.   

2 – Time Management: Clocks and Changing Seasons

The arrival of winter brings the inevitable task of adjusting clocks at the end of British Summer Time on the 29th of October. It might seem trivial, but synchronised timekeeping is vital for the smooth functioning of any office.

While clocks are generally updated automatically, if you have any problems or need any assistance with this task, Sussex Facilities Management can help.

3 – AC Units: Optimising Efficiency

While colder winters demand new heating solutions, it’s also crucial to optimise existing resources, especially air conditioning units.

Our facilities management team excels in maintaining AC units, making them energy-efficient and cost-effective ensuring a balance between warm indoor temperatures and energy conservation.

Additionally, Sussex Facilities Management can provide comprehensive guidance for your teams to show how to use these AC units effectively.

Proper usage not only ensures a comfortable environment but also contributes significantly to energy savings and reduced operational costs.

4 – Ongoing Support: Peace of Mind, Every Day

Winter weather can be unpredictable, and facility emergencies can happen at any time.
