Impact:

[Low / Moderate / High]:

  • HVAC units will still run to provide fresh air but the units will not have the ability to provide heat.  The Facilities has programmed the buildings to run early Friday morning to bring the spaces up to temperature before the gas is turned off.
  • Fume hoods will still continue to run and exhaust but the make-up air units will not be able to heat the incoming fresh air.
  • Hot water will only last as long as the residual hot water that is in the tank capacity which will vary from building to building depending on capacity and demand.

Safety:

Exercise caution around work zones. 

Do not enter cordoned areas and obey all signs & instructions given by construction workers.
