Get rid of Autoflush Toilets & sinks & change heat/cool settings

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

The autoflush toilets waste a tremendous amount of water. The toilets will flush before it needs to and sometimes several times on its own. This is extremely wasteful and inefficient. We should be able to manage to push a handle down by ourselves. Also, the settings for the AC & heat are way too cold in the summer and too warm in the winter, which is extremely wasteful. Each building needs to be looked at separately as far as what should be the normal temperature range as this can vary from building to building instead of just setting a blanket range. My building is comfortable at 77 degrees which seems like it would be too hot, but isn't.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
