The heating and air conditioning systems in University Housing are complex, but saves energy when used properly. They are balanced for maximum comfort. You only need to adjust the thermostat to get the room temperature to what is comfortable. The type of heating and air conditioning that is in your apartment depends on where you live:
- University Lofts - split system heat-pumps
- Patton Hall - two pipe with electrical strip heating
- University Commons - four pipe system
- Piedmont North - room p-tack with thermostat on the unit
- Piedmont Central – two pipe with electrical strip heating
- Each suite in Patton Hall and each apartment in the Lofts and Commons has its own thermostat
TIP: At Patton Hall and the University Lofts, do not open your windows because the heating and air conditioning systems have been balanced. Opening windows cause the systems to unbalance there by over cooling or heating the bedrooms and bringing in moisture.
It is important that roommates discuss the room temperature to agree on a thermostat setting. Just remember that you are entitled to comfort, but energy consumption leaves less for our future, so please keep this in mind.
