Without knowing anything of the dimensions of the office, the heat load within, the number of occupants, the cooling load, the ventilation and thermal insulation arragements, the only way to tell is to carry out experiments. Tolerance is important: 23degC +/- what, for example?

Most thermostats used in heating applications in high latitudes have a small resistor wired across the neutral and switched live terminals. The resistor pre-warms the switching mechanism so that it shuts off slightly early on approach to temperature setpoint. This is to allow for the fact that there is thermal capacity in most heating systems and that there would be temperature overshoot, and consequent loss of economy, without it.
