An HVAC system of great complexity

When I saw that my new client has a library in his house, you probably think I mean he has a room in his house filled with books.

You would be wrong about that.

This guy used to be a famous author, and eventually he stopped writing books and started collecting them. He has a collection spanning five decades, and has built a literal library on the second and third floor of his stately manor with wall to wall book stacks. There are so many books that he has a professional librarian who tends it for him 20 hours a week! When it was news it was state of the art, but now the HVAC system was almost twenty years old and needed to be upgraded in a major way. I said that he needed all new equipment, but he also needed a deep cleaning of all the ductwork. I additionally recommended he invest in a series of small dehumidifiers for each room of the library. With the little units to pull extra moisture out of the air it would put less stress on the central HVAC system, which would allow it to work better and stay stronger for much longer. If we did everything right, he wouldn’t need any further renovations for another 20 years, so long as he had regular maintenance and upkeep on his HVAC system. I won’t need to put in 20 hours a week to work on his system, but I do check in once a month, instead of the normal twice-annual HVAC inspections, because of how much money he spent.
