Last year I came into work a little late! It had been a hard season with so many tourists around that I overslept.
When I got to the cafe, our chef was already prepping the day’s specials. I apologized for my tardiness and began my chores. Since I’d opened the establishment, business was booming. It was summer, and multiple people were coming out for beverages and pastries while sitting in the outdoor area. As I was cleaning, I noticed the room was getting hotter. Something was wrong with the air conditioning since it wasn’t blowing frosty air. I went to check it and saw some water on the floor beneath it! Days were getting hotter, so we had been overworking the AC. I suspected there was an issue that’s why the heating and A/C proposal wasn’t cooling the cafe. Immediately I got on the phone with the air conditioning repair corporation for assistance. After explaining the matter, they sent over an AC mechanic to take a look. When he arrived, he unplugged the cooling component and began checking different parts. After a few hours, he found the condensate drain pipe was blocked, and that’s why the aircon was leaking water and not blowing sufficient frosty air. He explained to me that a buildup of mold and fungi caused the clogging. It’s why AC services suggested official maintenance for the devices. He took some time unclogging the heating and cooling component drain pipes. Additionally, he cleaned the dirty air filter and put the AC proposal back together. When he plugged it back in, it was now working once more, blowing ample frosty air. That experience made me see the importance of performing official heating and A/C maintenance to increase the durability of the cooling device. Also, I had the AC expert check the temperature control for any faults before he left for another appointment.
