As temperatures rise this summer, remember to adjust your thermostat accordingly. Increasing the temperature in your office conserves energy as well as saves Yale money.  Below are Yale’s summer temperature guidelines:

Classrooom: Occupied  73-78o F; Unoccupied  HVAC Off (Temp. Uncontrolled)

Offices: Occupied  73-78o F; Unoccupied  HVAC Off (Temp. Uncontrolled)

Laboratory: Occupied  73-78o F; Unoccupied  78-80o F Night Setback

Library: Occupied  73-78o F; Unoccupied  78-80o F Night Setback

If you are not in control of your thermostat and your building is over air-conditioned, contact the University’s Energy Manager Tom Downing at energyconservation@yale.edu.
