More than 3 in 5 participants in the survey use personal fans or heaters or don lap blankets and fingerless gloves. Cadi Withers was swamped last year with summertime air-conditioning complaints from employees at the New York City offices of AppNexus, an online advertising-technology firm. Withers, senior manager, global office operations.

AppNexus started using an app last summer that allows employees to order up a minute blast of cool air or heat on command. Users can send one of three messages via the app, by Comfy, of Oakland, Calif.

Withers says. Honeywell Building Solutions in Minneapolis plans this summer to launch a similar app it has been testing since last fall, called Vector Occupant. Building managers typically strive to maintain temperatures in a 2-degree or 3-degree range between 68 degrees and 74 degrees Fahrenheit—levels shown in research to be comfortable for most people, says Diane Coles Levine, managing partner of Workplace Management Solutions, a Long Beach, Calif. To placate chronic complainers, some facility managers install dummy thermostats.

Research shows office workers perform best when they have control over their physical environment. People also perform better on challenging tests of working memory when the temperature is set at the level they prefer, even if their preference is outside the range regarded as best for the majority, says a recent study, published last year in Psychological Research. Those who said they liked the heater low performed better at a room temperature of 59 degrees, well below the normal range. Those who said they like the heater high did better when the room was at an above-average 77 degrees, the study found.

And then I go for a walk. She likes the temperature at He recently used a temperature-control app to secretly lower the thermostat in Ms. Sutter, director of operations, says she realizes her colleagues sometimes suffer because her thermostat is so high and tries to dial it down when that happens. Sutter and another manager who likes it hot have windows facing west, where rooms tend to heat up more in the afternoon. Those who prefer cooler temps are along the east side.

Some employers give managers who are chronically overheated separate offices with their own thermostats, says Dave Hicks, director of facilities solutions for OpenWorks.

Others move overheated employees away from windows and sunlight. Mimic the actor's pose in his Cosmopolitan centerfold —he's sprawled on his side, legs slightly bent at the knees—and crunch up from that position, hinging at your hips. Bearskin rug not required. Cut salt Potassium-rich foods some beans, dark leafy greens, squash, avocados, mushrooms, bananas balance out the sodium in your body, and laying off processed junk and otherwise healthy fare like cottage cheese, nut butter, wheat bread, and tomato sauce keeps you from adding any more.
