I have been working for a commercial heating and A/C service company for the past many years.
I usually service the same heating and A/C company accounts every week and I think all of our co-workers and all of the employers for each of the properties! Some weeks ago, my boss picked up another property, then both of us are now servicing a hotel on the beach that is in need of a lot of renovations.
I was assigned to evaluate the heating and A/C needs for the hotel. I spent most of the afternoon looking at the property and inspecting all of the heating and A/C equipment! The hotel was recently bought by a new owner and the company wants to make some repairs and updates. One of the greatest complications in the hotel is the heating and cooling plus ventilation equipment. By the time I was finished with our investigation, I had a report that was almost 4 pages long. I wrote a full report to provide to the hotel management company. They were completely appalled when they saw the list of repairs. I quickly explained that most of the items on the list were necessary in order for the hotel to meet local building codes. The hotel had not been renovated for nearly 30 years and a lot of complications needed to be fixed before it would even get a permit to open. I don’t think the guy realized the seriousness of the heating and A/C complications until he saw everything written on paper. The repairs were nearly ten thousand dollars and those were just the really necessary items.
