Not too long ago, I was walking around my floor in the office building at work, and every single Person was either wearing a jacket, wearing a sweater, wrapped up in a blanket, or running a little portable heater. That is absolutely crazy! Why don’t they just turn the control device hotter? I feel this is a question for the age. I have never worked in an office building that had the HVAC settings set just perfectlyâ€¦ Someone is always hot, and someone is always cold. Although in this case, on this particular day, there was no 1 who was not using some sort of heater. I, personally, had my little portable gas furnace congested in. I keep a sweater hanging on the back of my door, even though I just did not feel like wearing that, so I used my gas furnace instead. Anyway, as I walked around and saw people battling the chilly as if they were outside, it occurred to myself and others that if the people I was with and I simply could figure out how to get top-notch HVAC in all the office buildings in the country, the people I was with and I would have no more problem with the environment. That might be a stretch of the imagination, but you must admit that having an air conditioner blowing and little furnaces blowing at the same time all throughout the building is a terrible waste of energy. The two of us are always distraught about saving the environment, having a smaller carbon footprint, taking mass transit instead of driving, Etc, and yet here the people I was with and I all are working in buildings that are chilly chilly for no obvious reason. I absolutely am going to have a talk with our operations supervisor to see if there is something the people I was with and I can do about the heating and cooling situation so that I don’t feel so guilty about killing the planet every day while I’m working.
