I ran into my bosses office, frantic and hopeful at the same time for the new year. Everyone in our office knows that the new year means a new budget. Some people in the office think that we need new chairs while others employees would vote for a new scanner. I think that the best way to spend the money would be to buy a new HVAC system. A new HVAC system would be a great investment for the office. Sometimes, the AC in the office doesn’t work in the afternoons. With such large windows,the sun comes into the office in the afternoon and makes the building very warm. While most of the people in my office do not see the need for a new HVAC system, I can attest to the necessity of a new HVAC system in our building. Each month, the heating and cooling costs increase on our monthly energy bill. As I am the one responsible for making these payments, I see that replacing the HVAC would be the best use of the surplus of company money. While most of my coworkers would argue that a new heating and cooling system would only benefit the company and not the individual employees, I must disagree. Being comfortable in the workplace depends on a number of factors. Being too hot or too cold during the work day can dramatically decrease productivity. Replacing the HVAC would be an easy fix to a long term problem and save us even more money for the upcoming year.
