The air quality in the doctor’s office was really bad yesterday when I took my son in for a wrist X-ray.
He had a little bit of an accident on his skateboard and we were afraid that his wrist had a fracture in it so we went to the doctor.
I was expecting it to be nice and cool there but something was wrong with their heating and cooling system. There was a commercial HVAC company van parked out in the parking lot when we got there, so that should have been a sign to me that there was going to be an issue inside of the building. The indoor air quality in the lobby seemed to be OK, and the elevator ride was fine on the way up to the doctor’s office. However, once we walked into the doctor’s office waiting area, that’s when I noticed that there was definitely something off with the heating and cooling system. I can always tell when something is wrong with the indoor air quality because I am just very sensitive to that kind of thing. I think that the HVAC system was not working correctly on that floor, or at least in that suite, because the indoor air quality was terrible. It was very stuffy and there was no circulation going on at all. As a matter of fact, I didn’t hear the heating and cooling system come on at all the entire time that we were waiting to see the doctor. Meanwhile, there were HVAC technicians coming and going in the outer doors to the hallway. I saw one of them hauling some tools around to the back doors of the office. There was definitely something going on that day.
