Working at the clothing factory had been a great opportunity. Life had not been easy growing up, and I fell into some terrible habits. But, my aunt never gave up on me when mum left. She took me in, got me the help I needed, then a job at the factory. After a few years, I rose to the role of supervisor. Part of my job was making sure the different machines were working efficiently, including the commercial AC system. The air ventilation in the factory needed to be the best. Many people were working on the floor, and we needed quality air conditioning. Every three to four months, I’d phone the AC company to send some aircon technicians to the factory. We always wanted to prevent any HVAC faults before they happened and affected the airflow. Last month, we had a major inspection coming up, so we needed the central cooling and heating unit to be effective. I phoned the HVAC business and booked a team of AC specialists. They arrived at the factory and got to work diagnosing any problems with the cooling unit. My bosses wanted to know all the faulty components that needed replacing. That way, we would be ready for the inspectors who were coming the following week. Apart from checking the cooling unit, they had to clean out the air filters and dust the HVAC system. Some of the AC issues that jumped to light were faulty ductwork. Some air leaks were preventing effective airflow to the factory floor. Also, the AC technicians found mold and mildew, which was affecting the indoor air quality. Another area of concern was the thermostat. It was an older model that wasn’t controlling the temperatures correctly.
