During most of my summer and spring breaks, I would go to the zoo not only to see the animals but to work there.
I would intern at the zoo as a keeper’s assistant.
I continued working at the zoo until I graduated. Other than animals I noticed that I got interested in learning more about HVAC. I remember the first time I noticed my interest was when we got a new indoor air cleaning system at the zoo offices. Since the zoo has a lot of animals, they tend to shed fur and so the air at the zoo is low quality. It is fine if it is outdoors, but we needed proper air quality within the administration block. I was manning the desk when the air conditioning expert came through the door, flashed his ID, and introduced himself. He said he was there to run quality AC service and his colleagues would be joining him to handle the air conditioning installed at the other wing of the administration block. I directed him to where the system was. He began by ductwork cleaning then the AC filters. He explained that with clean ducts clean, then clean air from the air purifier being installed would not be contaminated going through the ac system. Soon after, the HVAC technician arrived with a team of four and I showed them to the basement where they would fit in the new system. How swift the workmen were with their tools fascinated me. They were from the local service provider and were highly qualified the fitting and create an efficient a/c care program. After they were done, they took us through the a/c care and HVAC maintenance guidelines we would follow.
