If there's one thing no one in the workplace can agree on, it's the ideal office temperature. Even here at Komando.com, we have some people burning up while others are wearing sweaters (even when it's 118 degrees outside).

Now, there's an awesome invention that can help end the battle over the office thermostat.

Comfy is the name that's changing the office temperature game! This incredible invention lets you adjust your office space to fit your individual preferences. The best part is that you can do it all straight from an app on your smartphone.

The Comfy system attaches to the existing heating and cooling system in your office. To change your desk temperature, you can decide from three options: Heat My Space, Cool My Space or I Am Comfortable.

If you're warm, the air conditioning will blast for a short period of time, and if you're cold, the heat will do the same. And if you're comfy, the air conditioning stays the same. Over time, the app will build up personal preference data to give you what you want without even having to ask. These Companies Claim They Can End Office Air Conditioning Wars Bloomberg Business

Not only will you be more "Comfy," but according to the Comfy website, your office will be more productive and the heating and cooling costs will drop dramatically.

The website backs up this energy- and money-saving claim by explaining, "Comfy saves energy in two main ways: by reducing cooling and heating in unoccupied spaces and by reducing cooling and heating that's unwanted. Comfy learns which rooms aren't used often and when no one is in the office. It then starts to reduce conditioning during unoccupied times, which saves a lot of energy."

Would you like to have Comfy in your office? Tell me why or why not by leaving a note in the comments section below.
