In addition to the external factor such as e.g. glare on your screen, window blinds can also eliminate the changing temperatures at your workplace. Thermal comfort means that one is satisfied with the balanced indoor climate.
The sun can be a burden on the thermal comfort in the summer. The right window blinds are then necessary to maintain a satisfied indoor climate, without too much energy costs being spent on the air conditioning. In the winter, window blinds can provide insulation for the windows, to prevent the heating costs to raise.
Ideal window blinds ensure a more pleasant working climate, which improves the productivity among the employees."
