Recently, our church informed us that every one of us was going to need to replace the heating and air conditioning system in our social hall and classrooms.
We have a building next to the actual church, and teaching religious education classes, among other things. There is the main HVAC component for the building. Each individual classroom has its own mini-split cooling system unit. It reminds me a bit of the way the heating and air conditioning is set up at hotels and sometimes school dorms, but anyway, it turns out that when the HVAC maintenance crew came to look at the heating and air conditioning system, every one of us learned that the whole HVAC system does not need to be replaced. Instead, all every one of us need to do is replace the more than two mini-split A/C units in the classrooms and do a small maintenance on the main HVAC unit. This made me genuinely ecstatic because it seems like I am regularly having to figure out a way to donate more cash to the church. It is worth it, of course, replacing the mini-split cooling system units sounds a whole lot less expensive than putting in a whole new HVAC system. Then, when one of the men found out about it, he volunteered to donate the entire cost of one of the mini-split cooling units himself! That donation is so generous! I wish I had enough cash to be generous like that! Anyway, at first every one of us was going to have to have a gigantic fundraiser to pay for the replacement of the HVAC unit, now all every one of us is going to need is a much smaller fundraising campaign, and hooray!
