When the idea of heading the women’s shelter as a matron was presented to me, I was surprised but happy. I have a heart for helping people in need. The women’s shelter was designed to create shelter for young pregnant women or teens with nowhere else to go. When I was assigned the matron job, I decided to ensure that all these women would enjoy the highest form of comfort possible. One of the things I had to do to ensure this was to service, repair, or replace the heat and AC products. There was a functioning heat pump that provided cool air from the summer heat. The air quality system, on the other hand, was not working. The women had since given up on having high indoor air quality after the air purifier broke down about five months ago. When I visited the local business for an estimate on a new system, I found a supplier running a sale. I got the invoice on all the required equipment including a thermostat and presented it to the head of the shelter. A few weeks later, we received a brand new air purification system, a gift from our governor. He also sent over a few technicians to handle the installation. The ductwork snaked its way around the shelter. I did not think the duct sealing process was that complex and required special material. For the air filters, we went for the washable filters as they were easier to install and affordable. The technicians took us through the things we needed to do to maintain the optimal function of the system including duct cleaning. Clean air ducts promote good air quality and prolonged life of the system.
