Area Too Hot or Cold?

If there is a classroom, lab, or office that is either too hot or too cold, contact FMS at (530)898-6222 during normal office hours, M-F, 7:30am-4:30pm. 

For summer hours and holiday shutdown times refer to the campus calendar.

In general, the campus follows EO-987 which mandates building temperatures between 68o and 78o, which is currently what the Boiler Chiller Plant uses as the boundaries for heating and cooling. For heating in the winter, steam boilers are used. For cooling in the summer, the Thermal Energy Storage system and chillers are used. During fall and spring, sometimes neither the boilers or chillers are being used as the building fan system will circulate outside air if between the temperatures of 68o-78o. The Boiler Chiller Plant does not run both the heating and cooling at the same time.

If your area is outside your temperature comfort zone, but within the 68o-78o temperature, we hope that you will adjust and assist us in our energy conservation by dressing accordingly. FMS strongly discourages the use of personal heaters and fans.
