My office was closed down for 3 days, so the building owner could update all of the heating and AC equipment.
- I knew that it was time to update the heating and AC equipment a year or two ago, when the temperatures started getting warmer and warmer during the summer.
The winter temperatures were never really a problem, but during the summer, it was very hot and humid inside of the building. I didn’t even want an office with windows, because it let more heat into the building. I was excited when I found out about the office closure. First, we got three paid days and we didn’t have to use any of our vacation time. Since the owner of the building had to make the updates, we were forced to shut down work. The boss decided to pay everyone for those 3 days. The owner of the building installed a new heating and AC system along with an air filtration unit. The air filtration unit works really well. The first time I went back to the office, I could feel the temperature difference in the air. It was much cooler and the air was crisp and free of humidity. The office indoor temperatures weren’t even the best part. The smell inside of the building was clean and fresh. It was like walking into a brand new hospital or office building. I enjoyed the new air smell for several weeks, but now I don’t even notice there is a difference unless someone makes a stinky piece of fish in the break room.
