Indoor temperatures run amok

With autumn in full swing with its dipping temperatures and splashes of oranges, yellows, reds, and golds across the city trees, we can also expect that indoor heating, particularly in our office, will begin to turn on. Chris and I are lucky to live in a building where we have full control over our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems by room, so we can always adjust it as we see fit. In our Flatiron office, though, where the building is quite old, we do not have this luxury. Instead, the building decides whether and when to turn on air conditioning or heat, and they also decide the temperature to set it to. We have zero control over this. What this inevitably has led to is some rooms being scorchingly hot, while others are cold and frigid. It’s a constant complaint during the colder months, but there’s nothing we can do about it other than have a backup hoodie at our desk or strip off extra layers of clothes. Gotta love New York City heating and air conditioning.
