If an environmental room or incubator is unused, we turn it off (after checking with others).
Environmental rooms (i.e. warm and cold rooms*) and incubators consume significant amounts of energy; any room or appliance that requires a constant temperature is energy-intensive. If they are not being used, they should be turned off.
* Cold room: room constructed or equipped for storing samples or material at low temperatures
Warm room: room constructed or equipped for storing samples or material at warm temperatures
