QUESTION OF THE WEEK: The War Of The Thermostats
Q. I have an ongoing battle with our property manager over HVAC issues. I am told the equipment is “functioning as it should be,” so there is nothing he can do. Yet, we have staff members wearing winter coats and fingerless gloves to be able to work at their desks (Bob Cratchit would be proud). Is it too much for a building occupant/tenant to expect a comfortable working environment?
The building engineers take the temperature reading at ceiling box level, and I’m concerned with the temperature at desk level. What recourse do I have?
