Utilities

Minimizing energy use on campus requires a mutually supported effort between Facilities Management and all other members of the campus community. While we strive to minimize energy use through efficient maintenance of the buildings and their energy using systems, the support of the campus community at the user level also is required to ensure the reduction of energy use.

Actions that campus members can take to conserve energy and other resources include:

  • Turn off lights, fans or other equipment in offices, classrooms, CTS areas, offices etc.
  • Close blinds and drapes in the evening to reduce heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer.
  • Turn off water faucets completely.
  • Report broken windows and/or improperly closing doors to the maintenance staff.
  • It is recommended that thermostat temperature settings not exceed 68 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter or be set lower than 72 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. The cooperation of all departments in accepting these guidelines will contribute significantly to reducing energy use.
