This has entirely 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 Heating plus A/C setting. I think I didn’t see this coming given that we’re talking about small differences in Heating plus A/C 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 everyone. That is for sure terrible however true nonetheless. I’m as disappointed with those I oversee as I am with myself for not remedying the situation sooner. The main concern is the fact that we all toil on a single floor of an office building. Aside from 2 walled offices plus 2 conference rooms, the rest of the space is open. This works good as far as the toil is worried. However, all this space is governed our only a single Heating plus A/C control unit. That means that the setting has to be such that it suits the mean Heating plus A/C comfort. I figured that if the average person was okay with the Heating plus A/C 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 Heating plus A/C people to tweak the existing Heating plus A/C system. Once we return from the weekend, we will have zone control Heating plus A/C with 5 separate zones plus I will put to rest this stupid Heating plus A/C setting war.
