When I first got promoted last fall to my current position at work, I thought I was the luckiest guy in the world.
- I was really moving up both figuratively and literally.
That’s because my new job position is located on the top floor of the building with all of the other executives and big shots who run the company. I was excited to be up there on the top floor, and I couldn’t wait to get my new office all set up. When I finally did get moved up and I started working up there, I immediately noticed that there was something going on with the heating and cooling system up there. It was the middle of the summer and the temperatures outside were really rising. As you probably learned back in school, heat rises. I figured this out the hard way on my first day in my new office. The floor to ceiling windows in my new office gave off some serious heat from the heat transfer from the sun through the glass and my office started heating more and more by the minute. I turned the temperature down on the thermostat, but that really didn’t seem to help very much. We have zone control heating and cooling on the top floor of the building, and so I assumed that I could keep my office just as cool as I wanted it. However, that didn’t end up being the case. It’s nearly impossible for the A/C to keep my office cool because of the sun, the windows, and the placement of my office. I think I’m going to bring a portable A/C in to help cool things off in there.
