Dalhousie University
OP-T2-13: Timers for Temperature Control

Status Score Responsible Party

"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:

A brief description of the technology used:

Dalhousie does have some timers on certain systems in different buildings for controlling building temperatures. We have a Building Automation System (Metaysys) (Johnson Controls Metasys System) that uses DDC control to schedule and control building systems based on industry standards for indoor environmental comfort.

Some newer buildings such as the Mona Campbell and buildings being retrofitted like the LSC are automatically programmed to regulate temperature in spaces based on occupancy hours. They use digital thermostats that are controlled at the user level and the building automation control system.
