Air conditioning for comfortable working conditions
In a modern business world many employers are voluntarily focusing more on comfortable working conditions in order to save overall expenses to be caused by reduced efficiency of the staff which follows the trend towards stricter working conditions enforced by national laws in more and more countries.
Furthermore, there is a general tendency for constructing low energy houses or building with glass facades which both need to be cooled down (or heated during the cold season) and dehumidified by mainly using the technology of room air conditioners or VRF system.
The increasing popularity of air conditioning is also due to permanent improvements of the products themselves (e.g. optimised airflow, compact design and surprisingly low noise levels) to be offered at affordable prices. Finally, such advantages have contributed that nowadays room & split type air conditioners are rather considered as a consumer than a luxury product anymore.
