ABSTRACT
The article presents a narrative on the author's experiences on dealing with problems regarding the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system of a Lutheran church in Wisconsin. The collaboration of the author with an engineer regarding the HVAC system is discussed. In this paper, the evaluation of slot diffuser velocity of the system is also addressed.
