The JRFC is sincerely sorry for the A/C units in the Cardio Room being down for nearly two months now.  What started out as thinking it was a simple fix of replacing a broken circuit board in the A/C unit, now has turned into an electrical issue. The main circuit breaker in the sub-basement that feeds the A/C unit is faulty.  A new commercial breaker with high amp rating has been ordered and we are hoping in the coming weeks it will be installed.  Please bear with us.
