Air-conditioning in large open-plan offices is difficult.
If you have ever worked in such buildings with people of mixed age and
sex you soon realise that some people are shivering while others are
complaining about the heat.
I'm sure I read that some buildings fitted dummy thermostats on office
walls that occupants could adjust. They made no difference to the
air-conditioning, but people felt better.
