Back in the day, the Barnes and Noble was not just where people went to read books. It was more than that; it was a hangout! Parents could easily allow you to go to the Barnes and Noble than if it was a strange place. I remember a day I told our mother that I had gone to the Barnes and Noble while, in reality, I had gone out with some friends. My father, the up-to-date company at the local HVAC business, happened to have gone to the Barnes and Noble that day. The building that housed the Barnes and Noble needed up-to-date air conditioner equipment. They had an cooling system that had seen better days, and even the common air conditioner tune-up was not working anymore. They had contacted a cooling specialist earlier to get advice on the best plan that would guarantee excellent air quality. The cooling expert had first to inspect the existing device and the building. He discovered that almost every HVAC duct had to go, and no amount of duct sealing would recover it. He expected it since it was the original ductwork, and the building was almost as aged as society. Together with the professionals, the property owners agreed that a ductless heat pump would be ideal and more cost-effective. Having a zone control plan was dismissed because it wasn’t practical. They also addressed the temperature control panel. They upgraded the aged temperature control with one that was more technologically advanced. After the upgrade, the Barnes and Noble management ensured that common air conditioner tune-up was semi-weekly. The day I claimed to be at the Barnes and Noble, it had been closed for the upgrade process. When our mother asked myself and others where I was, I didn’t even stutter when I said the Barnes and Noble.
