As the warmer weather arrives, CPFM Facilities Services will again implement its process for systematically deactivating the heat within steam-controlled buildings. These locations include the following:
- Collier House
- Lokey Education (East and West)
- Music (radiators only)
- Mac Court (radiators only)
- Susan Campbell
Because turning off the system is an involved and lengthy process, Facilities Services has established the following methodology regulating when technicians will deactivate the steam for the warmer season:
As Spring temperatures become warmer, we systematically turn off the steam when outside nighttime air temperature is above 50 degrees for five (5) consecutive nights AND daytime air temperature is above 70 degrees for five (5) consecutive days.
Since Spring temperatures may vary widely from day to day, building occupants can expect inside temperatures to fluctuate until outside conditions meet the above criteria, and technicians can deactivate the steam.
