IT Tips – Keeping Your Devices Safe in the Heat

Due to unprecedented hot weather, it's especially important that we keep ourselves and our devices safe from overheating.

Most of us welcome hot weather, but when it’s too hot for too long, there are health risks.

Alongside health risks, our IT equipment and electronic devices need extra care and can also contribute to the heat in a home, office or workplace.

The responsibility for keeping your employees, facilities and IT equipment often falls to Facilities Managers.

Here is some of our advice:

  • Stay indoors if at all possible
  • Keep south-facing windows and curtains closed
  • Stay hydrated
  • Use a fan if possible to keep your and your device’s temperature down
  • Keep your device on a smooth hard surface, with air gaps around the back and sides
  • If using a laptop, keep it plugged into mains power. This allows for the internal fan to work most effectively
