Grumble, Grumble

It's a warm day, here in Lake Woebegone Anchorage.  75 degrees, last time I looked, and still rising.

My building has two air-handling systems: one feeds a tenant space on the first floor which requires positive pressure at all times. The other, larger system feeds the rest of the multi-story structure.

Both chillers have gone on the blink today. 

I shoulda stayed in bed.

Oh man, such fun... NOT! Hope you got it sorted in short order.

It took until 2 pm, after the A/C had been off for 4.5 hours. Most of the tenants were understanding.

75 degrees requires AC?

I mean it's like 78 inside according to the thermostat by my computer tonight and I am actually feeling a bit on the cooler side of comfortable.

PP, I know you're not familiar with the status for a surgery center ... but trust me, it's hard to provide a federally-mandated 66° environment when it's pushing 80 outside, while all those lights are on in the O.R.

Rev. Paul,

It's a good thing your people were very understanding. This was something you really don't have control over when it goes out.
66 degree's in hospitals or medical facilities is always so
darn chilly. I would have to have a light jacket at work all the time. Granted I like it cool in our home but not 66 continuously.

Sandy, the temp in surgery is always a tug-of-war between the surgeons & nurses (who wear several layers of impermeable clothing) and those who just stand or sit still, and get chilly. But the temp is for the patients, and the surgical team just has to put up with it.
