Control Mechanics is responsible for the climate control systems on campus. We install, maintain, and repair the system that controls and monitors indoor climate including temperature, ventilation, and air quality.
For example, following a request for a colder or warmer room, our control mechanics are often the first responders on site. They will determine cause - this could be a malfunctioning thermostat in the space, a faulty control valve located at the air handler in the mechanical room or at the volume box in the ceiling space, or one of the many sensors located in the expansive heating and cooling piping systems may require re-calibration.
Facilities Management’s control mechanics maintain 5000 control panels collecting data from nearly 750,000 controls, points, and sensors measuring air quality and movement.
There are 5 Control Mechanics on our team.
