The art of temperature

Sometimes the Fishbowl feels like a
sauna, and sometimes the Mason Hall
classrooms feel like freezers. But if
you've ever wondered who controls the
thermostats around Angell Hall, you're
not alone.
The Angell Hall thermostats can be
adjusted by almost anyone who is using
the building's facilities, although it is not
recommended to fiddle around with the
thermostats, according to Jim Almashy,
an energy engineer in the College of Lit-
erature, Science and the Arts.
"Thermostats in offices andclassrooms
do not respond in the same way they do at
home," Almashy wrote in an e-mail inter-
view. "It may take an hour to change the
temperature two degrees in a large class-
room".
He added that LSA controls the spe-
cific temperatures at which its buildings
should be kept.
"Ideally, LSA wouldlike all thermostats
to be set at 74 degrees in the summer and

68 degrees in the winter," Almashy wrote.
"As the LSA EnergyfEngineer, I try to visit
all classrooms, offices, and common areas
twice a year makingthis adjustment."
Almashy said this temperature range
is consistent with practices at other uni-
versities and complies with the Univer-
sity's Planet Blue Program, which was
launched in Fall 2008 and is designed to
increase energy efficiency.
"When that program is complete, LSA
might consider mandatingthe above tem-
perature settings," Almashy wrote.
Though temperatures' generally stay
within a certain range, Almashy added
that common areas are usually kept cool-
er than the rest ofthe building inthe win-
ter and warmer in the summer.
To regulate the change inbuildingtem-
peratures, Almashy said part of his job is
to "review classroom schedules, as well
as office schedules, and turn off heating,
ventilating, air conditioning, and exhaust
systems when buildings are unoccupied."

The reason students sometimes feel
like the rooms in Angell Hall, especially
the Fishbowl, are too warm is due to
the unusual warm days in the middle of
spring or fall, accordingto Almashy.
"The Plant (Operations) cannot just
turn large air conditioning systems on
and off for a day," he wrote. "It typically
takes a team of skilled trade Plant employ-
ees weeks to fill the chilled water air con-
ditioning systems and ready them for
operation during the spring, and equally
as longto drain them in the fall."
Almashy said states' varied weather
and temperature patterns make this espe-
cially difficult.
"Turning these systems on too soon
in the spring or running them too long
in the fall could result in catastrophic
failures if temperatures drop below
freezing for any length of time," he JDMOCH/Daiy
wrote. "And that's a real possibility in Oneof many thermostats in Angell Hall The
Michigan." thermostats are controlled by the LSA energy
- DIYA WADHWA engineer.
