Feeling a new breeze in the Temple?
It's been in the high 80s and even the 90s for the last several weeks in Indianapolis, but the Temple has been markedly cooler than in past years. That's not by accident. Brother Randy Spaulding has been literally crawling inside the ductwork all over the building in an attempt to divine the mysteries of the 101 year old ventilation system. "When they built this place, those men wore wool suits and hats all the time," says Randy. "They didn't just put up with this kind of heat."
Thanks to his hard work and stubborn single-mindedness, he has reactivated a second major air handling system that is pumping hot air out and creating literally a stiff breeze in some parts of the building. And he continues to work on the dampers hidden throughout the system to make it effective in the upper floors.
No, it's not exactly chilly during a 90 degree day. But it's far more inhabitable than it's been literally in decades. Thanks Randy!
