Step 5: Temperature

Do not work in a cold office environment. CSA (the Canadian Standard Association) recommends an office climate of 22 to 24 degrees Celsius for the average clothed individual during the summer, and 20 to 23 degrees Celsius during the winter. Relative humidity should be 49-60 percent year round. 

If an office is too cold, too hot, too drafty, your employees will be uncomfortable and productivity will fall. Preferred temperatures are subjective, but additional attention to temperatures and humidity in an office is very important. Offices are heavily baffled for noise and hinder air flow. The same is true for temperature pockets and stagnant air masses. Pay particular attention to air flow, request an electric fan if necessary.
