Centralized Heat in Commons

Brief Description

Many visitors to the Commons during the 2019-2020 winter have noticed a chill in the air as several of the individual room heat pumps have been malfunctioning.  The Parks and Commons Commission asked the Facilities Manager to investigate options for repair and/or replacement.  The Facilities Manager learned that the units in the Commons were actually designed for residential use and recommended to the Commission that they upgrade to a commercial central heating unit with duct work to each room.
