Is sweating good for you?

My home office is rather hot. I have the option of installing a fan which would make it feel less hot, but I was wondering if just sweating while I work has any health benefits.

I know dehydration is dangerous, so I would be aware of this and be drinking water.

The health benefits of sweating come with exercise.
