Contractor of mine told me of an issue he had at a country club. Ladies playing cards in their card room were never comfortable. He checked out equipment and found no problem. Women kept getting up and changing the thermostat. Equipment was unnecessarily being cycled. Contractor got with club manager and decided to unwire stat in girls room, and locate another stat with remote sensor that manager could control stat. Girls still get up and play with stat and are so comfortable.
Come to MN, trust me, they are more massive than men.
See my recent post. This whole AC and women thing has to do with the way their body temperature works due to the fact women have children (see my post above).
Also in the office space think of the attire. Temps will run cooler because men must wear suit tie etc so that means heavier clothing. If I was wearing a skirt or tank top or whatever all those different combinations of women's clothing are called, I'd be complaining too of the cooler temps to boot.
Some of this falls into the ‘picking your battles’ category. I have the wood stove fired up this cool morning. I’ll bring the house temp up to 75+ then let the fire die down. I have bookoo firewood, may as well burn some.
Well up here in the Northeast Kingdom, the wood furnace gets lit up sometime around November first. Being an add on to our oil, forced hot air system, there is little control over heat output. You light the fire and bask in the heated glory. Our house stays on average somewhere between 76° and 80°, depending on the outside conditions.
If for some reason that isn’t sufficiently warm, we light up a fire in our stone fireplace. And we usually do!
I do. My wife and child are used to it and layer up or grab a blanket if they get cold. I like a cold house, and power is cheap in my city. 64-68 is normal all year. Feeling hot shortens my attention span and patience.
