Did you know, simple BMS maintenance could have a massive impact on your business, and your profits?
We understand that having your BMS serviced is a bit like paying for car tyres…nobody really wants to do it. But just as tyres are essential to your safety, BMS maintenance is integral to your working environment, as well as your staff and customer well-being.
In a guide published by the BSRIA (Building Services Research and Information Association), they suggest that up to 15% of losses or gains are attributable to the design, management and operation of your buildings. Further to this, they also suggest that an 18% difference in thermal satisfaction is equivalent to a 3% change in productivity. In simple terms, if your staff are warm enough, they work better.
‘…an 18% difference in thermal satisfaction is equivalent to a 3% change in productivity…in simple terms, if your staff are warm enough, they work better.’
The BSRIA actually takes this estimate further by quantifying it, stating that this 3% change in productivity equates to an increase in turnover of £2,400 per person, assuming that the average
employee generates £80,000 of company income. Using this model it’s easy to see how a 3% increase in productivity could easily pay for a BMS maintenance contract alone.
To illustrate the point further, if the business had 100 staff, that would be an increase in revenue of £240,000 per annum.
The guide also suggests that a 15% energy saving could also be possible through regular maintenance. Assuming a space allowance of 14m2 per person with a typical energy usage of 287 kWh per m2 and an energy cost of 10p per kWh, the suggested savings could easily equate to £6,027 per annum.
