Benefits Of A Heated Desk

Are you looking for an efficient and cost-effective way to keep warm while working from your home office?

According to the Carbon Trust, heating accounts for 20-40% of energy costs in a typical office environment, which means there are big savings to be made. Reducing heating temperatures by just 1ºC can cut fuel consumption by 8%.

Investing in a heated desk this winter is the perfect solution to your energy and cost-saving problems!

Heated desks provide the comfort of a warm workspace without having to heat up your entire home. Not only is this a great way to reduce energy costs, but it also offers a range of other benefits.

In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of heated desks including…

  • How a heated desk can save you money.
  • Health benefits of using a heated desk
  • Heated Desk vs Fan Heaters
  • Productivity benefits of using a heated desk

How a heated desk can save you money

Worried about the financial strain of heating your workspace during winter? A heated desk is the perfect remedy for all of your cold-weather woes.

When working from home, it’s important to be mindful of our energy usage.

With traditional heating methods, we often end up heating our entire home even when we’re only using a small area like our home office.

This can be a huge waste of energy and money. But with a heated desk, you have the ability to only heat the area you’re using.

Not only is this a more environmentally-friendly option, but it can also save you money on your heating bill. By only heating your desk area, you’re able to control the temperature of your immediate surroundings without wasting energy and money on heating the entire home.

And the best part? Okofrom Minoioko’s heated desks are remarkably energy-efficient, costing merely a portion of what is required to warm a whole room or home!

With just 260 watts of power, the Okoform Minioko desks are up to 90% more affordable to run than a typical desk fan heater – allowing you to stay warm without busting your energy budget.

Wit an Okoform heated desk, you may not need to turn your heating on at all, saving you even more!

Another benefit of only heating the area you’re using is that it allows for more control over the temperature.

You can adjust the heat to your liking without having to worry about affecting the temperature in other parts of your home. This means that you can create a comfortable and personalised work environment that suits your specific needs.

What’s more smart heated desks like the Okoform Minioko are developed to offer targeted heat to the location where you require it the most – like your fingers and toes – keeping you comfortable and concentrated while you work.

With the flick of a switch, your desk will be heated as fast as you can make a cup of tea!

Health benefits of using a heated desk

Did you know that sitting for extended periods of time can have negative impacts on our health?

In fact, sitting for more than eight hours a day has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other health issues.

This is where a heated desk comes in handy, as it not only provides warmth and comfort during those long work hours, but a heated desk can also offer health benefits.

Firstly, a heated desk can help to improve blood circulation. As our bodies sit in one position for prolonged periods, blood flow to our legs and feet can become restricted, leading to numbness and pain. The warmth from a heated desk helps to improve blood flow, providing relief and preventing any long-term damage.

Secondly, a desk with an electric heater can also help to reduce muscle tension and stiffness. When our muscles are cold, they can become stiff and prone to injury. However, with the added warmth, the muscles are relaxed, making them more flexible and less susceptible to damage.

Lastly, using a heated desk can help to alleviate joint pain and inflammation. Heat therapy has been known to increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients to damaged tissues, promoting healing and reducing inflammation.

Overall, using a heated desk not only provides comfort during long work hours but also offers various health benefits, making it a smart investment for those who spend most of their day at a desk.

But staying warm isn’t just about comfort and cost savings – there are also health benefits to consider.

Cold temperatures can put stress on your body and immune system, leading to illnesses and a decrease in productivity.

By using an Okoform heated desk, you can maintain a healthy and comfortable temperature, allowing your body to function at its best and can even boost your immune system.

Take your health into your own hands all year long by investing in an adjustable desk that has heating capability. With this option, you can alternate between sitting and standing and thus reduce your risk of cardiovascular diseases and lengthen your lifespan.

Pair this with a cost-effective heating option for the cold winter months, and you’ll have the ultimate working-from-home desk that keeps your muscles from aching. Working from home has never been so easy with the Okoform Minioko Heated Electric Height Adjustable Desk.

Heated Desk vs Fan Heaters

When it comes to heating your workspace, you have several options available.

While traditional fan heaters and radiators have been used for decades, they might not be the most efficient way of keeping you warm and cosy.

The main issue with fan heaters is that they heat the air, which can be problematic in many ways. First, hot air rises, which means that the heat isn’t always where you need it the most. Additionally, fan heaters can circulate dust and allergens, which can be a significant problem for people with allergies or respiratory issues.

On the other hand, heated desks, like our Okoform models, use infrared technology to direct heat down towards your lower body, keeping you warm and comfortable without wasting energy on heating up the entire room.

The benefits of using a desk with an electric heater instead of a fan heater are numerous. For one, they’re a great solution for those with allergies because they don’t produce any noise, dust, or smell, so you can work in peace without worrying about triggering any allergies or asthma symptoms.

Moreover, heated desks are more energy-efficient since they only heat the area you’re using instead of the whole room. This translates to lower energy bills, which is a great perk for those who work from home on a budget.

Productivity benefits of using a heated electric desk

Don’t let the cold weather put a damper on your productivity!

Winter months can be financially taxing and with increased responsibilities of working from home, it can become a challenging season. However, investing in a desk with infrared technology can improve your physical and mental well-being, as well as increase productivity.

Here are four ways a heated electric desk can improve your productivity at home:

  1. Boosts focus and concentration: A warm environment can help improve focus and concentration, allowing you to get more done in less time. You’ll find yourself less distracted and more focused on your work, which will improve your productivity.
  2. Improves mood and reduces stress: A heated desk can help improve your mood by making you feel more comfortable and relaxed. This can help reduce stress levels and improve your overall wellbeing. When you’re in a positive state of mind, you’ll find it easier to stay focused and productive.
  3. Increases energy levels: A heated desk can help increase your energy levels, especially if you’re prone to feeling sluggish during the colder months. By providing a warm and comfortable workspace, you’ll feel more energised and motivated to tackle your to-do list.
  4. Alleviates muscle tension and pain: If you suffer from muscle tension or pain, a heated desk can help provide relief. The radiant heat can help soothe tired muscles and joints, making it easier for you to work without discomfort.
