What temperature is your office?

If you work in an office environment, what temperature is the office kept at? I am in a full service building and it is supposed to be temperature controlled, but my office starts off in the morning at 61-62 degrees F and by 4-5pm it is 75-77. Property management is telling us that this is the way the system works because it is turned down at night. Does anyone have this issue?

My office is routinely a balmy 62 degrees. It's like a meat locker in there.

The heat in my office is controlled by the shop next door which happens to be a flower shop. The women and gay guys crank it up to 80 and let it blast. I have a fan I keep on high so I don't sweat. The rest of the showroom is comfortable around 70. In the summer it's pretty cold in here, which I don't mind.

we have a thermostat in our office. I share it with two other people. I'm usually the first one in, so I can set it at whatever the hell I feel like that day. I don't think they know we have a thermostat

70-72. Monday mornings are a bit cooler because the HVAC is off in the building on the weekends unless someone requests it to be on for a specific weekend.

The school has a messed up heating system. Push the thing on the thermostat to warm, and it gets colder. Push to cold, gets colder. Don't touch it, gets colder, then blows hot air for a little, then more cold. No one really knows what temperature it is but it's probably around 65-67ish.

On the other hand, home is a nice toasty 72

the first week we moved into this office they had to replace one of the A/C units, then we had heater issues with the other one. neither one works 100%.

I WFH...today my basement is 59 degrees since I removed a fair amount of insulation over the past few days. That will be rectified this weekend.

If I were in LA I'm sure someone would be wearing a parka and scraping snow off of the monitor due to the icy conditions.
