Heat wave here, 4 degrees when I left the house. Would feel nice to you guys with the -20 wind chills. Be careful.
I wish the wind chills were only -20, but the air temp was -31 this mornig up here and it has came to a balmy -9 for our high, wids blowing from 5 to 15 mph. They are predicting colder tonight. Can't wait 'til this moves out of here. It is only supposed to get this cold in Alaska and Canada.
Well, I did have to go on a roof today. Started downtown, 44 stories up replacing a series 60 circulator. Nice & warm. Then out to a shop by O' Hare to reset two BVSS's on unit heaters (don't run the exh fan & htr together). Then the call came in. All the way out to Joliet to check a RTU. Manual OA damper was 50% open and one electric heat strip was bad. At -14 and -35 windchill, I closed the damper and said we'll be back.
Nice to have the Carhartts and the Veto Pro Pac was great but, that only goes so far. Man, it was cold!
**** yeah otto it was cold. I got lucky in the morning, had some inside work. My second call was server room A/C was down, so i had to fix A/C on the coldest day of the year in chicago. It was nasty on the roof for the few hours I was up there. next week its going to be in the 20's and 30's , its going to be like a heat wave!
