Well, I don’t have to worry about what the gym’s going to be like any longer.
That was one of those things I thought about every day at some point.
Was the gym going to be so hot and humid because the HVAC equipment was overwhelmed. Or was it going to be empty and then the HVAC cooling would render the place like a fridge. It was pretty much either or on that one. There wasn’t exactly any sort of sweet spot when it came to the heating and cooling at the gym. Actually, the only time it really felt good was on the rare occasions that it got really cold outside and the gym was crowded. That sort of balanced all the heat and humidity inside the gym with the fact that the HVAC equipment was simply overmatched. Now, I don’t have to worry about the gym at all. I don’t have to try and sneak in there when there aren’t as many people but avoid the empty times and the max HVAC cooling. It’s just no longer a concern. Sure, we gave up the gym memberships when the pandemic hit. Seemed a bit counter intuitive to workout for health while taking such a huge health risk with the virus. But my wife and I still get out workouts in on a weekly basis because we have a gym in the basement now. And I made sure we had good HVAC comfort in the new gym by calling the HVAC company. They installed a ductless heat pump down there and it produces the most even, consistent heating and cooling I could ever ask for.
