Retail bank locations serve clients with diverse financial needs, from depositing a paycheck to qualifying for a loan. Bank locations must provide a pleasant, safe, and welcoming environment where clients feel comfortable discussing their personal financial needs.
One way to ensure a comfortable environment is through well-designed HVAC systems. No matter what the outside weather conditions are, banks must balance between heating and cooling to ensure that clients feel comfortable indoors, with a consistent and expected environment. Also, by prioritizing Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), banks provide a safe location and remove airborne particles, mitigating the potential impact from COVID-19 and other viruses.
