    temperature

    It's not a matter of what I'm comfortable at I work in a College everyone has a different comfort zone. I'm looking for either a state ( new york) guidline or the ASHRAE guidlines for minimum and maximum temperatures during the summer and winter. This way I can say the temperatures fall within the acceptable ranges.

    On the cooler side is better at work,as people do desire different temperatures,so with cooler those that like it warmer can wear a sweater,etc.

    That's how we solved the issue in our office.

    Unhappy

    Suggestions are wonderful but I've tried them I need to know if someone has some kind of guideline either from the State (New York) or from Ashrae. That states what the acceptable or mandatory indoor temperatures have to be between in Summer and Winter.
