James says: July 31, 2012 at 1:50 am We have set where each users will what is the max temp or min temp and we take avg temp to set the hot or cold. Reply Michelle says: August 2, 2012 at 9:07 am I use one set point and explain to all employees, If they are too hot or too cold they should dress in accordance to the office temperature, we just can’t please everybody at the same time. Reply Donnie says: August 3, 2012 at 1:13 pm I am with Michelle – Please dress accordingly. We try to keep building temps around 72-73 deg. F. Very difficult to do this year as we had so many 100deg. F days. Reply Wilson says: August 3, 2012 at 1:20 pm We have a corporate summer / winter temperature setpoint policy. 72 – 76 in summer and 69 – 73 in winter. Any complaints that fall outside those are not acknowledged as problems. Our system monitors each VAV zone and alarms are sent if they fall outside the setpoint parameters.
