With such old buildings the a/cs and ducts were possibly so old that they tended to have holes and broke down easily
I have never been so happy to move out of my parents household and return to university. At first it was because I hated having to be stuck in a household where I couldn’t do what I wanted and had to get use to having a curfew again. After a week into Summer though I realized that my university had certainly kept their Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system at a much lower level than my mother which meant that I had to readjust to a hotter climate even while being indoors. Now it isn’t like my mother kept the household at a high temperature, but she refused to have the system go any lower because she said it made the electric go up a hefty sum in our biweekly payments. My university system kept the dorm rooms and the classrooms at about 81 degrees. This was partially because numerous of the university buildings were historic and close to 100 years older. With such old buildings the a/cs and ducts were possibly so old that they tended to have holes and broke down easily. To make sure none of the students were sweaty or sizzling they made sure to keep the buildings as chilly as possible and even put window units in each classroom so that if the system as a whole broke down the classes could still be comfortable. Some of the students began to think that a great portion of our tuition fees went to paying for the air conditioning while the other students swore it had to go to the water bills because our sprinklers were always on and watering some part of the grounds throughout the day periodically even twice a day.
