For some reason, I never considered the ice cream parlors would want to have air conditioning too, but that is truly a key component in how they keep the ice cream freezing and not melty! I currently work after university at a curte ice cream site downtown, then the owner is super nice and apparently used to make the ice cream in her garage, and air conditioning is pumped into the cases of ice cream, which keeps their internal temperature at a cool 38 degrees. I needed to check in each shift, and make sure that all of the air conditioner units were working, otherwise it would mean disaster. All of us had a total of 5 large air conditioner units in our store, all of which required very specific points of care, and required an Heating and Air Conditioning specialist to service them almost every three months. The Heating and Air Conditioning specialist will come and oil all the wheels, ensure all the cranks and innards of the air conditioner units were all working to full capacity, and update anything that wasn’t. This is one of the major keys to our success, as this plan allows us to keep the ice cream at a good temperature,and keeps the store nice and cold during the summers. The winters can be a bit rough, as the air conditioning competes with the freezing air outside. Investing in a good pair of gloves is a good rule of thumb when working in air conditioner, even though I also wear a hat and scarf tied tightly around my neck, which is truly a blessing in disguise. In the summer, I am used to the air conditioner temperature by then, and am able to only wear a shirt and a pair of jeans when in the air conditioner climate.
