How to keep your buildings cool during a heatwave

Heatwaves – how to keep your buildings cool?

In the UK, our weather is highly unpredictable. Often after seemingly endless weeks or months of dreary wet weather, we’ll suddenly have a glorious heatwave.

As happy as we are to see the blazing sunshine and be out and about in it, us Brits aren’t well prepared for hot weather (despite heatwaves becoming more of a common occurrence).

The UK is set to have another potential heat wave this month with temperatures reaching over 27 degrees.

So, we’ve been busy thinking of some tips to help your buildings to stay cool and have created a mini video series: from free cooling/night purging, AC systems and employee engagement, to why you should get your BEMS and AC working together. What’s more some of these tips will help to reduce your energy bills. Which sounds like a great deal to us!
