In the summer of 2014, Andrews Air Conditioning conducted a thorough survey that revealed approximately 80% of people are unhappy with their office temperature. Deeper analysis of the results suggested that women are twice as likely as men to feel cold – with scientific research now finally proving just why that is the case.
Scientists have discovered that indoor climate control systems have been designed to suit the metabolic rate of an average middle-aged man. This therefore means that women are likely to feel colder than their male counterparts at work with numerous units across the country overestimating people’s thermal comfort levels.
Many of today’s air conditioning standards are derived from studies conducted over fifty years ago, which benchmarked the resting metabolic rate of an 11-stone 40-year-old man. Experts say that the model used at the time may miscalculate the amount of heat generated by woman sitting still by as much as a third.
