Have you ever gone into work and mistaken your office for the North Pole? Does it seem that everyone else is fine, but you’re always reaching for a sweater? This is an unfortunate reality that many women have to deal with on the job. Air conditioning impacts everyone differently, and women seem to always suffer the consequences.
You don’t have to feel like a burden, there is actually scientific proof to back you up! Men generate more energy than woman do throughout the day because of their metabolism. This energy is converted to heat and stored inside the fat cells of the human body. Men tend to feel comfortable at a room temperature of 74°F. Women on the other hand feel more comfortable at a temperature that is about 2-3°F warmer than that. While bringing a sweater to work might solve the problem, it is pretty inconvenient. The most viable solution to this problem is installing a programmable thermostat in the office.
The programmable thermostat can regulate the temperature in an office throughout the day so that it suits both male and female needs. In the morning hours, maybe you’ll decide that the temperature will be set to where the men feel comfortable. In the afternoon, that temperature can automatically reset itself to fit a woman’s needs. Just like everything else in the world, all it takes is a little compromise.
