    Going on the Record

    Rumor has it ,we will not be circulating chilled water this fall, before we drain for the season. Not a good idea. I have witness frozen coils on the old Trane units. These units have poor air mixing, air stratification, questionable freeze stats and steam coils that are in poor shape.

    Count me out for repairing chilled water coils and flood control, I am on the record.
