From Rite-Hite: Beat the heat in your warehouse this summer
Summer is just around the corner. And while we all welcome the sunshine and a break from the cold and snow…are you ready for higher temperatures, rain and an influx of bugs and pests?
An increase in warm weather patterns could cause a decrease in worker productivity. The National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center projects that Texas, Oklahoma and other central Southern states will see temperatures of 33% higher than normal in May, June and July.
Along the East Coast, and down to Florida, as well as in the Pacific Northwest, temperatures could be as much as 50% higher than normal during those month.*
Keep your workers cool throughout your facility with high-volume, low speed (HVLS) fans. Unlike traditional ceiling fans, just one HVLS fan can cool big spaces as large as 22,000 square feet. Help your employees stay comfortable and productive, no matter what the season may bring.
