MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan -- During the summer months at Misawa Air Base, members from the 35th Civil Engineer Squadron Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning team mobilize to ensure both the air conditioning equipment and quality of life and morale of Airmen and their families is maintained. In the process of chiller system cleaning and restoring, HVAC Airmen pry open the unit's panel, thoroughly clean the inner coils, replace the oil filters and restore the panel door's sealant with new material. The annual process from start to finish, takes over three hours and will not have to be done again until the following year.
