If you are female, you would totally understand this. While your male colleagues in office are enjoying the air-conditioning, you (a female) shiver. There is a reason behind that. According to a study, office buildings set temperatures based on a decades-old formula that uses the metabolic rates of men, reports New York Times.
“In a lot of buildings, you see energy consumption is a lot higher because the standard is calibrated for men’s body heat production. If you have a more accurate view of the thermal demand of the people inside, then you can design the building so that you are wasting a lot less energy, and that means the carbon dioxide emission is less.”
