Keep Your Jobsite Workers Warm This Season
Written on: September 5, 2023
Temp heat keeps your project and your workers warm
In Atlanta, the weather generally starts to get cooler as summer transitions into fall – especially in the evenings. In late September or early October, the summer heat begins to subside, and the fall season starts to set in. Temporary heat is often the answer to keeping commercial projects going strong, and workers comfortable and productive. Read on to learn all about how temporary heat powered by propane can help you manage your teams efficiently and meet your deadlines – without ever compromising the quality of your projects.
Protect you employees’ comfort and warmth
To ensure a productive work environment, you’ll want to provide your team with a safe, warm workspace, no matter what the weather is. You don’t want your team vulnerable to frostbite or hypothermia. Beyond those concerns, it’s important to maintain a comfortable temperature that suits the majority of your workforce for a variety of reasons–
- Physical Comfort — When people are too cold, they might shiver, tense up, or struggle to concentrate, all of which can reduce their overall productivity.
- Cognitive Performance — Research has shown that exposure to cold temperatures can affect cognitive functions such as attention, memory, and problem-solving. Employees may find it harder to think clearly and make decisions when they’re cold.
- Energy Expenditure — When the body is trying to stay warm, it expends energy to maintain its core temperature. This energy expenditure can lead to fatigue and reduced energy levels, impacting an employee’s ability to work efficiently.
- Morale and Job Satisfaction — Feeling consistently cold in the workplace can lead to decreased job satisfaction and morale. Employees might become less engaged and less motivated if they’re uncomfortable due to cold temperatures.
- Physical Health — Cold environments also can have negative effects on physical health, leading to discomfort, stiffness, and potentially even health issues like colds or other illnesses, which can lead to absenteeism.
The Georgia Gas Distributors team will help you manage your heat with routine maintenance to ensure that your job site and employees are safe and comfortable.
Protect your project with propane
The construction industry in Atlanta and the surrounding area is booming, but as colder weather approaches, you’ll need to keep your projects streamlined, safe and on-schedule with quality temporary heat you can count on. Why does it matter?
- Prevent plumbing disasters. Temporary propane heat will protect any exposed plumbing pipes. It’s important to prevent pipes from freezing and possibly even bursting.
- Ensure quality. Keep the space you’re working in warm so that paint can cure as it should and spackle and joint compound will adhere to drywall.
- Stay on schedule, without complications. If it’s too cool, drying and curing time for paint can last longer, and some paints may become difficult to apply. The quality of plaster and stucco may also be compromised.
