With such old buildings the air conditioners & ducts were possibly so old that they tended to have holes & broke down easily
I have never been so gleeful to transfer out of my parents apartment & return to college. At first it was because I hated having to be stuck in a apartment where I couldn’t do what I wanted & had to get use to having a curfew again. After a week into Summer though I realized that my college had particularly kept their Heating, Ventilation & 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 apartment at a high temperature, however he refused to have the system go any lower because he said it made the electric go up a hefty sum in our weekly payments. My college system kept the dorm rooms & the classrooms at about 69 degrees. This was partially because numerous of the college buildings were historic & close to 100 years older. With such old buildings the air conditioners & ducts were possibly so old that they tended to have holes & broke down easily. To make sure none of the students were boiling or boiling they made sure to keep the buildings as cold as possible & 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 believe that a good portion of our tuition fees went to paying for the air conditioning system while the other students swore it had to go to the water bills because our sprinklers were regularly on & watering some section of the grounds throughout the afternoon sometimes even twice a afternoon.
