Gender matters in study about room temperature

A recent study earlier this year showed that women scored higher on tests in a room that was warmer, set between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit, and men performed better when the room was cooler, set below 70 degrees F.  This information can affect not only students, but people in your office as well.  How do you know where to set the thermostat in your workplace to get the most productivity out of your employees and still keep them comfortable?  It is a bit of a conundrum, since even the Occupational Health and Safety Administration won’t give an exact number.  We at Paragon Orthopedic Center try to keep our patients comfortable, and warmer seems to be better in an office where you have a healthcare provider examining you.  It is hard to please everyone, but we strive to keep you happy!
