They keep the A/C in the gym running constantly

They seem to keep the A/C in the gym at our church running constantly for some reason.

I don’t think that it’s necessary, and to me, it feels like we are just wasting money.

I know that we don’t use the gym as much as we probably should, but sometimes the kids in the youth group just want to go outside and so they don’t want to be stuck inside of the gym. I understand that, of course, and most of the time I’m glad that they don’t want to be stuck inside. However, I also don’t feel like we need to use the air conditioning in there all the time. It’s literally been running every single time that I have been inside of the gym over the past two months. I mean, if it would run, cool the place off, and stop, that would be one thing. However, it just runs constantly and that cannot be good for the commercial A/C unit that’s installed in there and it also cannot possibly be good for the cooling bills that we have to pay as a congregation! I think that something should be done about it, but I don’t really know what. I’m thinking about calling the local commercial HVAC company to see if someone there might have any ideas about what we can do to fix it. There has to be a better way to deal with heating and cooling the gym than what we are dealing with right now. Maybe someone there will have a quick and easy fix for us.
