OP-T2-13: Timers for Temperature Control
|0.25 / 0.25||
Does the institution use timers to regulate temperatures based on occupancy hours in at least one building?:
A brief description of the technology used:
Many of the buildings on campus follow occupancy schedules programmed through a building automation system (BAS). Temperature is controlled during unoccupied hours through upper and lower limit setpoints, depending on the season.
Temperature controls in the buildings are programmed to adjust space temperature setpoints at specific times of day. The setpoints and hours of occupation were formalized in buildings controlled by the BAS through a new university policy adopted in October 2011 and phased in during spring and summer 2012. Should changes be necessary, schedules can be remotely adjusted using the BAS.
The percentage of building space (square footage) with timers for temperature control:
