An a/c malfunction at the school gym

He also replaced the air conditioner’s a/c filter, which was something that the grounds keeper should have done close to a month ago

Being a high school fitness teacher is not what I would call a lifelong dream, but you get what you get, and you don’t grumble. I actually love my work, and being a physical education instructor means that most of my classes are outside or in the gymnasium. This has a lot of advantages, since I get to stay fit. Yesterday, as I was preparing for my next class, I noticed that the school gym was sweltering, which did not bother me too much, since the children would engage in physical activities and sweat no matter what. After the class, however, I examined the thermostat, and saw the temperature was abnormally high. Every time I reset the settings of the a/c unit, it would not stay where I set it, and would start rising again. Not too long ago, we had an air conditioning system rep come to the school and make all the proper calculations for the new cooling equipment. The a/c expert had advised a system custom tailor fit for our facility, that was more energy efficient. I was the person to observe and inspect the installation process. Anyway, when I saw the current problem, I called the a/c supplier to send a tech for a/c repair. They responded at once, the cooling specialist conducted an a/c tune-up, and everything ran efficiently again. He advised us to schedule servicing twice a year to avoid such problems in the future. He also replaced the air conditioner’s a/c filter, which was something that the grounds keeper should have done close to a month ago. Since I observed both activities, I learned more about a/c each time.
