Brown College Heating and Cooling Units
The heating and cooling units at Brown College are very easy to operate and will provide comfortable space conditions if set correctly.
FOR COOLING: The unit switch should be set to the Summer position and the fan switch should be set to HIGH. The thermostat should be set to a position at mid-scale. The unit should operate to maintain space conditions of 72°F at these settings. If a slightly warmer space temperature is desired, the thermostat can be set to a warmer position. If a slightly cooler space temperature is desired, the thermostat can be set to a cooler setting. However, caution must be used when adjusting the thermostat to a cooler setting, as setting it too cold can create a condition where the space becomes cold and damp and condensation forms on the unit top and front.
FOR HEATING: The unit switch should be set to the Winter position and the fan switch should be set to HIGH. The thermostat should be set to a position at mid-scale. The thermostat can be set to a slightly warmer or cooler setting if desired.
It is NOT recommended that the thermostat be set to the extreme cold or warm setting at any time. Doing so will not make the unit heat or cool any faster. The TOP and FRONT of the units MUST be kept clear of obstructions at all times. This includes desks, wardrobes, books, clothes etc. Blocking the airflow through the unit will cause the unit to not heat or cool properly.
