I am a teacher at a dance studio has dance lessons for children and young adults with special needs. It is honestly a fulfilling job to be able to teach the special student the bizarre ways their bodies can move. I teach three classes every day. Some of the students have a type of autism that makes it hard to be around loud sounds. Last Saturday afternoon I opened up the dance studio, and as I turned up the A/C unit, I realized it was making loud noises. I tried turning the temperature control off and on, thinking that would eliminate the noise. Twenty minutes later the A/C was still making an obnoxious noise. I knew my dancers would be negatively affected by the distraction of the sound. I didn’t want to cancel classes for the day, so I decided to turn the air conditioner right off. I called an HVAC tech, and made an appointment with him to inspect the dance studio cooling system. He planned to come to the studio after the first class of the afternoon. The air quality was a little bit warmer than usual, but every one of us got through it. I apologized to the parents, and told them about the random cooling problem. They were concerned but understood. The HVAC tech showed up on time and checked out the A/C. The HVAC serviceman soon found the problem, and fixed it right away. The air conditioner unit was soon pushing cool air around the entire studio. The students breathed a sigh of relief, and the air felt cool minutes later. Air conditioning is typically substantial, especially in a dance studio like mine.
