Posted by Tina Behnke

It always seems to happen on the hottest day of the summer: you come into work in the morning, and instead of relief from the heat, you get hit with another wave of stuffy, hot air.  HELP!!  The building’s air conditioning system is down.  It actually seems hotter inside than it is outdoors!
