Residential Heating Instructions

Residence Halls

See specific building Heating HOW-TO information courtesy of the Energy Club and “Tips to stay cozy.” Submit a work order or call Facilities at 507-222-4133 if you have any issues.

Houses

Thermostats are centrally located in the houses and Faculty Club House. 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.
