Temp at Level 3 data centers

with a former employer we had a suite at the L3 facility on Canal in
Chicago. They had this exact issue for the entire time we had the suite.
They kept blaming a failing HVAC unit on our floor, but it went on for
years no matter who we complained to, or what we said.

Good luck.
