I have a NYC office of around 2,000 square feet. I’ve complained to the landlord several times about the building’s substandard heat. Suffice it to say that nothing’s being done and nothing will be done.
The radiators will get this place to about 55 degrees in this frigid NYC weather we’ve been having lately. We’ve used 3 small electric heaters to make things bearable in here. I want to run out and get something to raise the temperature to something more comfortable, but I want to avoid buying 10 little electric heaters if there’s something I can get that will heat the whole office. An electric fireplace? Some sort of larger heater? What would you recommend?
My situation is such that I don’t want to make a five-figure investment, as I can break my lease at any time and I don’t know how much longer the company will be here. I also don’t want to pursue any solutions that involve getting the landlord in trouble with the various governmental powers-that-be in NYC. I want to buy something, bring it in and have everybody be immensely happy with me for making it nice and toasty in here.
How would you do it?
