Residential Heating Instructions
Set the thermostat or control and the heat will turn on when the temperature in the room falls below 68 degrees.
Burton, Evans & Goodhue Halls – The room temperatures are controlled at the individual radiators with thermostatic Ammark controls. Set the Ammark to the dot between the 3 and 4 position. Turn the Ammark up or down to control the room temperature.
Burton Third Floor: The temperature is controlled by a thermostat that is located on the wall in each room. Set the thermostat at 68 degrees to start the fin tube radiation.
Davis Hall – These rooms are heated by fan coil units and the controls for the fan coil unit are inside a flip cover. There are two dials, one for fan speed and the other for temperature control. The fan speed dial may be set at auto, low, medium, or high. When the fan is set to auto the fan will automatically turn on and off. When the fan is set at low, medium, or high the fan will continuously run. The dial for the temperature control should be set to 68 degrees.
Davis Cooling: When outside temperatures are warm in the spring and fall, cooling is on until 5 p.m. for Student Health and Counseling located in Davis Hall. Please keep windows closed to help your room stay cooler. Once the heat is turned on, air conditioning is not available.
Davis Heating: If there is no heat, turn the unit all the way down to COOL, let it sit for a few minutes, and then turn to HEAT.
Musser & Myers Halls – A fin tube radiator is located on an outside wall in each room. Individual room temperature can be set by opening or closing the damper. The damper is found on the top of the radiator and may be manually opened or closed with a chain. Close the damper in the winter to cool the room, open it for more heat.
Myers Fourth Floor – There is a radiator in each room and the control for the radiator may be in the room next to you:
Control in room 401 heats 401
Control in room 402 heats 402 & 403
Control in room 405 heats 405 & 404
Control in room 406 heats 406 & 407
Control in room 409 heats 409 & 408
Control in room 410 heats 410 & 411
Control in room 413 heats 413 & 414
Control in room 434 heats 434 & 433
Control in room 436 heats 436
Control in room 437 heats 437 & 438
Control in room 440 heats 440 & 439
Control in room 441 heats 441 & 442
Control in room 444 heats 444 & 443
Control in room 445 heats 445 & 446
There is a valve at one end of the radiator to adjust the control. Turn the valve all of the way closed, and then turn it all of the way open while counting the number of turns this takes. Now leave the valve halfway open (half the total number of turns) as a starting point. Operate the valve for finer temperature control. Turn counter clockwise for more heat or clockwise for less heat. When the valve is in line with the pipe it is turned on.
Nourse Hall – These rooms are heated by fan coil units. The controls for the fan coil unit are on the face of the unit. There are two dials one for fan speed and the other for temperature control. The dial for the fan speed may be set at low, medium, or high and the fan will run continuously when set on low, medium, or high. The dial for the temperature control may be set at 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 – 5 being the hottest. In the fall, if there is no heat, turn the unit all the way down to COOL, let it sit for a few minutes, and then turn to HEAT.
Severance Hall – The temperature is controlled by a thermostat that is located on the wall next to the door in each room. The control is inside a flip cover on the thermostat. There is one dial for temperature control and the dial should be set to 68 degrees. This starts the fin tube radiation. The Maintenance Department controls the following set points: lowest 55 degrees – highest 70 degrees.
Watson Hall – The temperature is controlled by a thermostat that is located on the wall next to the door or near the bank of drawers in each room. Set the thermostat to 68 degrees. This starts the fin tube radiation.
Cassat & Memorial Halls – These rooms are heated by in-floor heat. The thermostat is located next to each door and the control is inside a flip cover. There is one dial for temperature control. Set the control and leave it, because it takes awhile for it to warm up and cool down. The temperature is set not to exceed 70 degrees.
Thermostats are centrally located in the houses. Set the thermostat to 68 degrees. Individual rooms are controlled as follows:
- Rooms with individual radiators have thermostatic Ammark controls. Turn the Ammark up between the 3-4 for more heat or down 1-2 for less heat.
- Room temperatures are controlled at the individual radiators with control valves on one end of the radiator. Turn the valve up counter-clockwise for more heat or down clockwise for less heat.
