There is some kind of problem with the thermostat at work. Mainly, the guy that hooked it up did it wrong. At first, the heater wouldn't work at all, but he fixed that part. But what he still hasn't fixed is that if you turn the heater on, it starts heating...and keeps heating...until you turn it back off. Which means when I first go there in the morning, it is cold...and I have to turn the heater on to warm it up. But I can't leave it on when I leave since it doesn't shut itself down after it reaches a certain temperature...it just keeps on going...like the Energizer Bunny on steroids. But it was 50 F/10 C when I got there this morning, which is too cold to work, so I turned the heater on and came back home for an hour while it starts warming up. Hopefully the guy gets it fixed soon...when it gets to below freezing out I'm not gonna want to go in to turn it on and then come back and wait and go there again later.

We don't need a heating system in work. There's enough hot air coming from the management!!

@nanette64 I've often said that if I could invent a system that could be fitted to meeting rooms that could harness the hot air being spouted by managers and re-circulate it throughout the building, I'd make a fortune!!

That can be frustrating. The baseboard heater in our front hallway was accidently disconnected ten years ago whe an idiot did some renovations (I could write a book). Since the...we keep the door closed in the winter and use it as an extra fridge. This is handy at Christmas.

That sounds like my workspace-cold! The little area that my desk is in is actually not insulated, so we rely on a space heater. And I am always turning that thing down because its either too hot or too cold. Quite often when I turn it off I tell people that I forgot to bring my stick and marshmallows

I hope they fix that thermostat. Our thermostat problem is we can't agree on where to set it. My husband does not appreciate when I suggest he put on a sweater.

@JolietJake Well. The added brain cells might be worth the extra bucks.

I think the guy is intimidated by it...he hasn't been doing this long and sometimes doesn't appear to know exactly what he is doing

I hope it gets fixed too. You definitely will not get as much work done if you have to go back and forth all the time when the really cold weather hits.

I hope the guy fixes it soon, it's dangerous if it keeps heating and it does not turn off.

How about a little plug in electric heater until the big one gets up to speed? Then turn it off until you leave for the day. Turn off the big one and put the little one on for overnight.

I hope you won’t have to pay him twice. I don’t think he should get paid for the unfinished job. Unless of course, you are too generous
