The Condenser Unit Was Frozen

When the virus hit and I was forced to send all my employees cabin to work indefinitely, I was nervous that productivity would be low. I was someone who loved coming into the office because I knew I could focus better and I was more disciplined in my work. I also knew that some of my employees performed better in an office setting as well! However, I was pleasantly surprised to see our productivity levels stayed consistent once everyone got their cabin offices set up… For the past 6 months, everyone has been laboring from their own spaces and staying safe from the virus, and now that restrictions are lifted and I’ve been given the okay to let my employees return to work at the office, I was upset to get everyone back together. The weekend before everyone was busy to return, I went into the office to scrub and replace the air filter. I wanted everything to be sanitized and the air quality to be fresh, but when I turned on the furnace, I waited a few hours to hear it kick on but it never did, by the time I was done cleaning and replacing the air filter, the furnace never started. I called an HVAC supplier to come look at it and he offered me terrible news. Unluckyly, the HVAC method had sat unused for so long that the outside component had frozen. In order to thaw it out, he had to turn off the control component and then run the fan for various hours. I let the fan run all day and when I returned the following day, my furnace began to run after I turned it on.
