I am a superintendent for a large middle school and I handle a lot of weird things.
I deal with hiring janitors, a bus crew and even replacing the school heating system.
The heater became a huge issue for a while with the school. I was recently hired and didn’t realize that the boiler system could go any day. Well that day was right when the kids came back from winter back. Scrambling, I needed to find a temporary boiler system to provide heat. Thankfully I found a commercial and industrial equipment rental company that delivered the mobile boiler the next day. A guy set everything up and the school had heating. I was stuck with the giant, ugly mobile boiler for a few months. I needed to wait since I couldn’t let the kids go without heating legally. Once Easter break arrived, I contacted the mobile boiler company to come and remove their equipment. I then purchased the boiler system I wanted from the local HVAC dealership. They had a whole week to get the boiler I wanted, hook it up and clear away all the evidence. Now the school looks the way it used to and I no longer have to pay a boiler rental fee. I will say I am really thankful for the equipment rental company though. If they would have not been able to get me a temporary boiler, I would have been in quite a bind. The kids would have gotten an extra week of their holiday break most likely. The school board would have been in an uproar.
