Although the buildings are still in good shape, the HVAC systems are old and need to be replaced.
Just like other major cities in our country, we have homelessness widespread. I can’t think of those people, from babies to our seniors, out on the streets with no shelter or creature comfort. Some of them have chosen this lifestyle, but many end up there for reasons that I can’t even fathom. I help them all I can by working at the local shelters that we have erected, Here, they can come and find shelter from the streets, and the weather. They have beds to sleep on and a kitchen for meals. There is both heat and air conditioning in the shelters, and I am hoping to build some homes that provide this. I’ve found out that there are new regulations in our state. As an HVAC technician, I am very glad to see these regulations put into place. They now require every new building to have heating, ventilation and air conditioning. They have also added air purification for these buildings. Many of the shelters already have HVAC, but some of them are getting older. Although the buildings are still in good shape, the HVAC systems are old and need to be replaced. I had to talk to the board of directors to get a new HVAC system for the shelter in my township. It was quite a battle to get them to agree to the heating and air conditioning. It got a bit heated when I said that the new city codes require us to install a ventilation system along with an air purifier. The HVAC company begins their work in three days.
