This major operational change is resource intensive and has significant impacts on equipment, so it is only done once per season. 

Unfortunately, this means that in some buildings, space temperatures will be warmer than usual until the changeover is complete. 

Facilities will continue to monitor nighttime low temperatures and extended weather forecasts to ensure that adequate heating is available as needed. Long-range forecasts will determine when the final changeover is made.
