The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system is designed to provide your office suite with economical yet comfortable temperatures during normal business hours. It consists of central variable air volume (VAV) air handling units located in the penthouse, that supply conditioned air to multiple floors. Temperature control in the tenant spaces is accomplished by VAV boxes that vary the flow of air supplied to the space in response to a space thermostat. Heating is provided by either hot water boilers or electric heating coils in VAV boxes serving exterior spaces.
Should you have any problem with temperature levels in your office space, please submit a service request through JBG SMITH Connect so the Building Engineers can quickly resolve your problem.
Unusually large amounts of heat-generating office equipment (personal computers, servers, copy machines, etc.) may also affect the efficiency of the HVAC system and may require a supplemental system to achieve a comfortable temperature.
Electric heaters or fans are not permitted. Aside from being in violation of jurisdictional regulations and a fire hazard, they compromise the integrity of the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system.
After Hours HVAC

Supplemental HVAC Equipment
If you have installed supplemental HVAC equipment in your office suite, it must be sub-metered so you can be charged for the additional electricity. Please contact your Property Manager if you have any questions.
