Sorry about the title, but, I am getting a little heated.
Winter has just started to get colder over here in NZ and I have really had my work cut out, fixing up A/Con equipment that has gone out on o/load(in Commercial buildings).
Most of the time this is caused by the staff in the said building winding the temperature controller up as far as it will go, at one place it was set at 38 degrees!.
I wish that there was a way that these controllers could be locked out, or at least have a password entry system on them.
Another problem that really gets my goat, is when staff in these buildings, start fooling around with the heating control timers (which are normally held in the switch-board), with the idea that you can get more heat of the system, by changing the program.
This normally results in the program being mucked up or being cleared completely and the system shuts down all together.
I'm getting sick and tired of this behaviour, and I have raised my concerns with various managers at the respective places and most of the time I was told that they only do it because they feel cold.
If I am cold, I put more clothes on!.
What are your thoughts on this debacle?.
