Extended Air Handler Run-Time Requests

Telephone: 743-2070 or Send email to: 

Plant Operations plays an integral role in reducing energy consumption by minimizing equipment run times. HVAC-related utility consumption is the single-most significant energy-related expenditure. HVAC equipment run-times are scheduled to meet departmental needs with consideration for institutional funding.

Facility occupants who are in the buildings outside of normal business hours, and are in need of heating and air conditioning during that time, should call 743-2070.

 Requests for extended HVAC run-times should be requested 36 hours in advance, if possible, by phone at: 743-2070 or by email to:  Provide specific information to include dates, times, room numbers, and a contact name and phone number so clarification can be obtained, if required.

See TTUHSC OP61.10 for additional information.
