High heat, turn off equipment
High heat and high humidity are forecast for Tuesday, July 28 and Wednesday, July 29, 2015. Temperatures will reach 90 degrees with possible heat index values of 100 degrees.
The high heat will create additional stress and strain on the laboratory’s power and cooling systems. Employees are asked to turn off any unneeded lights, closing blinds and turning off computers, printers and other electrical equipment when not in use. Less stress on cooling and electrical systems will help improve the reliability of these utilities to Argonne’s user facilities and research laboratories.
