That might be an interesting item for "Dollar Store" to stock. Put it the hands of some celebrity or feature it on a news show and you've got a hit that might have abacuses on every desk?

Now more of the systems use local sensors to even out the temperature and zone systems deliver heat or cooling as a level where most people (not the really fussy ones) are comfortable.



 

In some of my comments I've been disdainful of overuse of sensors (mainly in connection with IoT), but this seems one application where sensors defintely make a lotta sense ...

@PC. The problem of too hot in the winter and too cold in the summer used to be much more common than it is today, now that many more buildings use more localized HVAC systems. Even 20 years ago the HVAC pumped out the same level of heat and cooling to every room in the building. Now more of the systems use local sensors to even out the temperature and zone systems deliver heat or cooling as a level where most people (not the really fussy ones) are comfortable.

My favorite (or least favorite to be more accurate) was how many buildings had thermostats spread throughtout the facility but they were disabled so nobody could change the temp. Some building managers went years letting employees think they actually were setting a new temperature.

I can understand "too cold in the winter". Someone is saving energy.

What I experience, all too often, and don't understand in the least is "too hot in the winter, too cold in the summer" More is being spent on the utility bills and it's to make people uncomfortable. How is that still happening?

In re "Never confortable in any room" in the office... Too cold year round, or the typical seasonal reversal with eco-conscious office managers: too cold in winter, too hot in summer?

Haha! I work in a "green" certified building and I think it causes more productivity slow downs than a regular building might. Temperature control is a major pain point for most. You're never really confortable in any room.

Spending time troubleshooting issues or patching software can certainly take away from a productive schedule. Cost cutting on one end usually shifts the burden to another...

@Sethbreedlove, not that far fetched. I've heard of companies that rely on employee home base resources to cut cost. Usually, startups.
