The school I work at has been experiencing issues with it’s HVAC system for several months now.
It all started when a few teachers were complaining about how hot their classrooms were.
The school is located down south, where the temperature fluctuates between hot and hotter, so earlier in the school year the temperatures are at their highest. There is nothing worse than being in a classroom that is overheated with a bunch of students who won’t stop complaining about the temperature. This is why the teachers began complaining in the first place. The school hired an HVAC company to come service the HVAC units, which seemed to fix the issue for a week or two. However, the issue continued after that time. As the temperature began to cool slightly with the winter season, we were all hopeful that the extra warm classrooms would work in our favor. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case because the furnaces started working extra hard to heat the school, and it got hot! The temperature was so hot that teachers began bringing portable fans into their classrooms and opening windows to allow extra air flow. Things got so out of hand that the school actually shut down for three days in order to get all the HVAC equipment replaced. It was an unexpected vacation, but I think everyone is excited to get the HVAC system under control and back in working order. We’re tired of being uncomfortable and the teachers are definitely tired of listening to our students complain about the heat.
