If you own and operate a building, regardless of its age, many of the items discussed under Original Design may provide for modifications at minimum cost to improve both health conditions and the cost of operation. Although a lot of the information may indicate problems during the cooling cycle of air conditioning and especially in high-humidity areas, the author has had 40 years' experience designing systems in cold areas with temperatures as low as 100° below zero. Page 3 In one building we designed in an area which experienced 30° below zero temperature and 50 mph wind, we discovered that there was sufficient outside air pressure to blow snow through the keyhole into the living room.
