I work on a board of administration for a nearby school district. It is not my dream task. I like teaching, but when I was offered the position, my husband was expecting twins. The task pays a considerable amount more currency, and much better health insurance. I could not pass it up. The worst area of this task, is picking up the pieces of the guy who had it before me, but every day, I seem to run into a new problem that I have to find a solution for. Today, it was the ever failing Heating and A/C unit, and no school can be open without a functioning heating and cooling unit. It is a state law. Nine times out of ten, the Heating and A/C units are decades seasoned and barely running. They are the opposite of energy and cost efficiency. I hesitate to even wonder what kind of heating and cooling is even coming out of their ventilation on any given day. The greatest problem I am seeing in the district is the dire lack of maintenance for the Heating and cooling systems. The two of us are supposed to have a basic quarterly visit from the worker to repair the air filters, air duct and overall system, clearly this has been neglected in the worst way. Now, I have to go around to find out why this has happened. Then, I need to determine how long they Heating and cooling unit as been without servicing, and finally, I have to assess the cost of an update, upkeep or maintenance of the new unit in order for it to run more efficiently.
