Heat and AC in the building

CCM switched the building to heat yesterday evening.

Unfortunately our heating/AC system uses heated and cooled water. Switching from heat to cool or vice versa requires advanced scheduling with our HVAC contractor as well as a couple days for the thousands of gallons of water to be cooled or heated to actually effect the temperatures inside of units.

This means that for a few weeks every spring and fall residents will be either uncomfortably hot or cool depending on the temperature outside.

Below are ways to help mitigate the temperature shifts in the periods where it would be better to have heat but AC is on or vice versa:

  • Install thermal curtains
  • Use a space heater
  • Install new windows/patio doors
  • Install ceiling fans
  • Use a fan
