Hereford College Heating and Cooling Units

The new heating and cooling units at Hereford 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 ON position and the fan speed switch should be set to the MEDIUM position. 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 ON position and the fan speed switch should be set to the MEDIUM position. 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 FRONT of the unit MUST be kept clear of obstructions at all times. This includes wardrobes, clothes etc. Blocking the airflow through the unit will cause the unit to not heat or cool properly.

Correct settings for 72°F cooling and heating
