Reminder About Seasonal Building Steam Management

Facilities Liaisons,

A standard operating procedure (SOP) has been established for systematically managing steam serving specific buildings on a seasonal basis. This process has substantially reduced thermal comfort complaints by minimizing overheating in late spring. Certain building spaces have had issues due to radiant heat emanating from active steam lines within the building footprint. The whole building (or a space within a building) may not be calling for heat, but the steam piping is still active up to the main control valve. The specific list of buildings include:

AAA Studios

Agate Hall (gym/auditorium space)

Cascade Annex

Chapman Hall

Collier House

Columbia Room 154

Condon Hall

Deady Hall

Esslinger Hall

Friendly Hall

Gerlinger Hall

Hendricks Hall

Huestis Hall (heat exchanger HEX-3 only for fin tube radiators)

Lokey Education (east)

Lokey Education (west)

McArthur Court (radiators only)

Millrace Woodshop

Frohnmayer Music (radiators only)

Onyx Bridge 169/170, 72/90

PLC hydronic radiators

Portions of Lawrence Hall (primarily studios)

Susan Campbell Hall

Villard Hall

Volcanology

As springtime temperatures moderate, Mechanical Shop personnel systematically turn the steam off to each building when the nighttime outside air temperature is above 50 degrees for five (5) consecutive nights AND the daytime temperature is above 70 degrees for five (5) consecutive days.

Informational Notice Regarding Steam Heat Season Start Up

Building Occupants,

With the start of fall term, our Fall weather has arrived.  The question has come up How does CPFM Facilities Services determine when steam to heat buildings is turned on in the Fall and off in the Spring.

To help clarify, David Ward, Building Automation Systems Manager (6-2303) lists below the criteria his staff uses to moderate steam to your buildings.

Please keep in mind, if we turn the steam on or off too frequently each season, it is very hard on the infrastructure serving our building’s mechanical systems.

If we turn on, and then day temperatures reach 70+ degrees, we are all too warm.

Steam is turned on in the Fall when:

  • Night time outside air temperature is below 50 degrees for five consecutive nights
  • AND daytime temperatures are below 70 degrees for five consecutive days

Steam is turned off in the Spring when:

  • Night time outside air temperatures are above 50 degrees for five consecutive nights
  • AND the daytime temperature is above 70 degrees for five consecutive days

Going forward intentions are to provide this overview and continue to communicate building wide outages email notifications for anything that is impacting building wide services. For outages that are localized to individual rooms, the project managers will be communicating directly with occupants.

For questions or concerns related to this timeline please contact CPFM Design and Construction Project Managers  Nick Pritchard 541-346-9139 or Jen Miley 541-346-1530.
