I was taking my sister to college and since she had missed out on the school accommodation, we had rented an apartment for her near the college.
- Mum had requested that I make sure she was comfortable before coming back home.
I registered her in the school, we got the keys to the apartment and helped her settle in. Just when I was about to leave, my sister discovered that the central air conditioning unit was off, and switching it on using the wireless thermostat was not helping. She called out to me to come to help her find out the issue. I had interned at a cooling company for about a year and she was confident that I would help with indoor comfort. I knew enough about commercial air conditioning systems and residential units to save a life. The HEPA filter seemed clean enough. The management had informed us that a quality AC service had been performed on the cooling equipment and so I expected the unit to be in a good condition. I noticed that the air duct was leaking as there were pools of water near the unit. The cooling specialist recommended we purchase a new HVAC system which the building management was responsible for. I chose the zoned HVACsince it made more sense and was cheaper to install. The cooling workman had mentioned that it needed less frequent HVAC service than most units. The unit was installed before the day ended and my sister at least spent the night in a chill house. She was extremely excited about starting school but she was also focused on achieving her goals. She did not need to change the system until she graduated and now in her new apartment in the city, she has the same unit.
