DAS/General Services Enterprise has implemented cost-saving temperature control policies throughout the Iowa State Capitol Complex and leased facilities. Buildings are heated to 68 degrees Fahrenheit (±3 degrees) and cooled to 78 degrees Fahrenheit (±3 degrees) during normal business hours. Building temperatures will be set back at night (after 5:00 p.m.) and fan coil units, air handling units and exhaust fans will be shut down. The night setback temperatures will not be implemented in areas where cooler air is required (IT, medical supplies, etc.).
By implementing energy control strategies such as these, we will all be contributing to the overall goal of reducing the State of Iowa’s usage of power, saving taxpayers even more money in the years to come.
If you have questions regarding this energy conservation policy, contact Customer Service at 515-242-5120, Option 3 or CustServ.GSE@iowa.gov.
