    How hot is it in your office?

    I'm just wondering if the whole world has gone crazy or if this insanity is localized to Toronto. My office gets up to (and sometimes over) 24C/75F and my last office got even higher than that!

    I'm looking for actual measured temperature (with a thermometer), not what the thermostat on the wall says it's supposed to be.

    My cube gets uncomfortably hot late in the day. To be fair there are about 60 to 100 computers in the big room where I am and most are quad cores.

    There's no choice for "what office". (It's not even a cube, really; there's a table built onto the wall and five chairs at the table.)

    Haha, Toronto guy thinks 73F is ridiculously hot. :P

    I find that to be humorous. Go down south and you'll find people grabbing their windbreakers if it's low 70s.

    I do not bother to look at the termometer
    I just set on the conditioner the temperature I fill comfortable... I suppose it is higher than 23
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    Right now? 44C. And yes it's bloody hot.

    Blame the stupid position of this room and the heat wave. As well as the heating properties of computers. It's 44C outside, I'm sure insulation is supposed to do something?!?!

    22C, also known as "just barely warm enough". In my opinion, the "standard" US temperatures are absolutely insane.

    I voted 21-23 (which is about right for me), but I have no idea what temperature it actually is, as the train systems in this country go completely crazy when it's snowed 2 inches, and we have about 12 inches of snow at the moment, so I stayed at home, rather than spending three quarters of my day traveling 40 miles (60 km).

    I'm not getting how over 23C is "ridiculously hot". I don't have an office, but I usually keep my room much warmer than that.

    When I work in 24C+ heat all day I start to get a headache & fever by the end of the day.
    I remember when I was working in Virginia, the office was alway a perfect 20-21C (except a few times when the A/C broke down).

    Well, since my office is my room, I can say, it's been so cold inside here, that I've seen my breath

    My office has the best air conditioner ever. One of those used to freeze corpses I'd bet.

    You seem incredibly intolerant to heat...
    My usual preference is higher than 20 degrees... I typically find that cold.
    23-24 is much more comfortable for me.
    Unfortunately, there isn't that much heat in my room :/

    Yeah, my whole family is.
    I wish I was one of those reptile people that are always freezing...

    I can't believe there are actually a few people in my office that wear a hat, scarf, sweater & thick winter coat all day long in 24C heat! Now that, I think just about everyone should agree is crazy.

    zacs7: Is it normally 44C in your office, or is your A/C broken? I'd tell my boss I'm working from home if it was that hot.
