"We are an academic research lab conducting research in forest pathology. Specifically we are working on Sudden Oak Death. The microbe responsible for this disease grows best at low temperatures, around 60 degrees F. Our lab is housed in an old building - freezing in the winter and sweltering in the summer. We are on the top floor, with a southwestern exposure. Because our organism can’t survive at these “extreme” temperatures, we needed to find an AC unit that could cool our lab. When the AirPac showed up, we laughed because it is so HUGE, but it has done its job well and kept us operating normally. Thank you AirPac!"
