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

A brief description of the technology used:

The campus utilizes Johnson Controls Metasys building automation system to regulate temperature. This digital system uses schedules to turn on/ off all roof top units. Mechanical units are programmed off at night. While the roof top units are off temperature set points are also disabled. Night time set points are achieved primarily through perimeter radiation. During colder weather individual units can be timed to come on via the system if needed
In the gymnasium the main MUA (Make Up Air Unit) is turned off at night. The night set back temperature is programmable and typically has a night set back point of 15 degrees Celsius year round. When the lower setpoint is reached the unit cycles on and off to maintain the set point


The percentage of building space (square footage) with timers for temperature control:
