OP-T2-13: Timers for Temperature Control
University Energy Manager
Facilities Planning & Design
Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:
A brief description of the technology used:
We have a building control system in most of our buildings. This system has programmable settings for the occupancy and the time of day. Most of the buildings have a 7 day schedule which automatically controls the temperature for that space or floor. A few years ago, we upgraded the system to include system access from our centralized offices as well as remote access. This upgrade also included the capability to program our timers to a 24/7 schedule which allows for better control on weekends, holidays and semester breaks where the university may be closed.
