No Heat No Cool soon to be underway at Yokota Air Base
YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan -- Yokota Air Base will begin its semiannual No Heat/No Cool period Monday, Mar. 31, 2014.
The program, conducted each spring and fall, allows Airmen with the 374th Civil Engineer Squadron to maintain Yokota's heating, ventilation and air conditioning infrastructure by allowing for routine, preventative maintenance.
"No Heat No Cool not only provides significant savings in terms of managing our energy resources, but it also allows us to update and improve our base infrastructure, which enables us to continue to defend and maintain the base as we transition into warmer summer weather," said Col. Mark August, 374th Airlift Wing commander.
"Last fall, implementing No Heat/No Cool saved the wing $518,000,"said Christopher Cook, 374 CES electrical engineer. "Fuel oil for heating is the largest component of our utility bill and some of the biggest opportunities for energy conservation are found during the early spring."
