Offices without air conditioning are seemingly struggling without a pleasant, cool environment.


The research has listed office workers top bugbears in the heat. The top thing that annoys people are smelly colleagues, voted the most annoying bugbear by 44% of people.

Second on the list was stuffiness, with 37% of the vote, as office workers feel uncomfortable working in such conditions.

The survey of 1,000 people by Ironmongery Direct has revealed that 65% of office workers are left feeling drowsy, tired, irritable and struggling to concentrate as office temperatures soar.

According to the research, two thirds of bosses fail to provide workplaces suitable for hot weather.

As a result of high workplace temperatures, the productivity of office workers drastically declines during a heat wave. In fact, the survey states that 1 in 5 people struggle to get any work done whatsoever when it is hot.
