This has really been a long time coming.
It simply hadn’t occurred to me the need to address this sooner.
The office that I manage is sort of at war a bit over the HVAC setting. I assume I didn’t see this coming given that we’re talking about small differences in HVAC comfort. But, when you have a group of people who spend this much time together, the little things are the problem. I should have know this. It just goes to show that there can be such a “me first” default setting with almost everyone. That is for sure poor but tplot nonetheless. I’m as disappointed with those I track as I am with myself for not remedying the situation sooner. The main problem is the fact that all of us all work on a single floor of an office building. Aside from 2 walled offices and 2 conference rooms, the rest of the space is open. This works fine as far as the work is worried. However, all this space is governed my only a single HVAC thermostat. That means that the setting has to be such that it suits the mean HVAC comfort. I figured that if the average woman was okay with the HVAC setting, I could deal with those on the fringes. What I didn’t count on was those diehards recruiting people to their side. But, I shouldn’t be surprised at all by the nuances of human behavior. So, I am bringing in the HVAC people to tweak the existing HVAC system. Once all of us return from the weekend, all of us will have zone control HVAC with 5 separate zones and I will put to rest this stupid HVAC setting war.
