I currently work in a large building with an open floor plan. Recently, the thermostat in the building was turned up to only start cooling when it gets to 76 °F (24.4 °C). With a lot of people, and a lot of computers, the temperature in my area hovers around 77 °F (25 °C) all day.
This is pretty hot for a building with little to no air movement. We cannot have fans at our desks either. I have went through the appropriate processes to try and get the thermostat put back where it was, but that failed. The individuals who control the thermostat are perpetually cold.
What can I do to adapt to the hotter temperature inside of the building? I'm extremely sluggish, sweaty, unproductive, and crabby all day long. I need that to stop.
