Mall of America heating system
    #4060031 - 04/15/05 07:33 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)


Engineers found that the number of visitors and the miles of interior lights made an interior heating system unnecessary.

So, the Mall of America is kept heated by the lights and the energy given off by people? That is amazing.

I remember when I heard that I was pretty amazed, especially since it gets quite cold there.

Is it open 24/7 ?
Otherwise it will definitely cool down during the night and be uncomfortably cold in the morning.

It closes at night but many of the lights stay on all night. During the day the A/C is used to keep it cool enough since so much heat is generated, so at night the a/c stays off more and keeps the temp up.
