I own and operate a small daycare supplier from classrooms in a nearby church building. Working with babies, toddlers, and preschoolers has consistently been my passion, plus I earned my daycare certification through the community adult education program. Several hours each afternoon, my assistants and I take the children outdoors to play. Naturally the babies are walked in strollers to get fresh air. The enclosed play space is a child’s dream with plenty of sand, swings, plus other playground apparatuses. For at least half of the year, when the weather’s warm, what all of us need when we return to the building is air conditioning. The hot, sweaty children need to cool down before lunch and nap time. The other half of the year, all of us need to have reliable heat upon our return. Once snow arrives, the frolic of kids playing in the snow leads to wet mittens, boots, plus snow clothes. Recently, the owners of the church researched an upgrade for the aging heating and cooling unit, having raised and saved enough money for the undertaking. After many heating and cooling companies ran tests on the building plus submitted quotes for the upgraded system, the church board approached me to inquire about any of my heating and cooling needs/concerns for the children. Naturally, I expressed my desire for efficiency plus dependability in any new system. But I thought I’d try my luck at asking if any of the choices came with a way to dry the wet snow clothes of twenty children. I don’t blame them for looking at me as if I was crazy. Ultimately, they chose a newly-improved heating and A/C plan that works great. What I had to begin researching was the cost of environmentally friendly dryers for mittens, hats, and boots!
