Well I talked to a few more people today about the temperatures inside. Turns out that air conditioning uses too much electricity for it to be a simple on-off thing, and the decision was made to hold off. As much as I like conservation of energy, I think it’s more helpful to have a functional workspace. Alas, I talked to Peter Staye (x3773) and there has been no change in policy.
I returned to the science center today with an instant thermometer and athletic shorts.
Sci Li: 85 degrees
My office: 86 degrees
ST Lab: 92 degrees
Second floor hallway: 82 degrees
Coldest place I could find (basement tunnels): 80 degrees
The forecast: Over the next week, a cold front will be sweeping through the surrounding CT area. However, due to incompetent climate control, this will not significantly moderate indoor temperatures. Drink lots of fluids and spend most of your time outdoors.
So, if you’re been in the science center or Olin recently, you might notice that its exceedingly hot. The room I usually study in is in the balmy 80s. ST Lab is – oh god – in the 90s.
A major contributor to this heat wave is the lack of air conditioning. According to two people I talked to in physical plant, either they turn on the air conditioning after its been over 55 degrees outside for 3 days straight, or they turn it on after graduation. It’s difficult to switch back and forth between heat and AC, so the logic is to prepare for a cold snap.
I’d rather be a little chilly: its pretty hard for me to concentrate with sweat dripping in my eyes.
