Iheating-1s your building hot in summer and cold in winter?

Making sure that you and your staff are comfortable in work is vital. Temperature and air flow is something we take for granted, but when you’re too hot or cold or yawning regularly (a sign of not enough oxygen), productivity will suffer.

At Highland, we install and maintain separate and integrated systems for industrial and commercial customers as well as for new build domestic customers.
The most important use of HVAC is to standardise room temperature, air flow and humidity. This is essential within industrial and commercial premises, where health and safety regulations set standards for these levels.

Health and safety statistics show that temperature can affect people’s ability to work under extreme high or low temperature.

Heating
We can advise and recommend local or central heating systems using fuels which will be economical over decades. We have a range of options available, from traditional boilers to economical and ecological heat recovery systems.

Ventilation
It’s free and we take it for granted, but fresh air, like water and food is a necessity for living. Stagnant air can cause sickness and allergies. Maintaining an efficient ventilation system, especially near water systems, is very important, as little or no ventilation can cause the growth of bacteria and fungi.

heating-2Air Conditioning
Air conditioning units combine heating and cooling from one highly efficient system. Designed specifically for the needs of the building occupants Air conditioning is now the preferred choice of many clients over traditional Heating and Ventilating systems.

Are you the ‘Responsible Person’ for an Industrial or Commercial premise?

In which case, you’ll already know that under the fire regulations, accountability for fire safety lies with you – the ‘Responsible Person’ is the employer or person who has control of the premises or part of it. The Fire Safety Order (The Regulatory Reform 2005, introduced in 2006) requires provision for correct signage and emergency lighting of emergency routes and exits from the building. Routine testing and maintenance of the emergency lighting system is also a requirement, and any failure to follow the correct procedures may hold serious implications for the responsible person.

Emergency lighting is essential for the safety of building occupants where a sudden loss of light may put lives at risk. Provision was brought in under the Fire Safety Order, where emergency lighting can really save lives, but emergency lighting is just as valuable when normal lighting has been lost through power failure.

At Highland, we provide an emergency lighting service for all our clients, as part of their existing contract, a one-off or as part of our facilities management service.
