Checking in with the doc

They keep it so cold on purpose

I just don’t understand. I tend to be super sensitive when it comes to sizable swings in HVAC. My husband is a sizable guy & seems to never get cold when I am just cold. I kid him that it’s his layer of blubber that keeps him warm. Me, on the other hand, I feel as if I’m cold more often than not. Granted, the people I was with and I live in the north so much of the year, I have every reason to be cold. Even though we all have a fantastic HVAC method with a powerful oil furnace, I still have a very hard time shaking the cold while in the winter. But it’s not just the Winter either. Even while in the summer, I find myself reaching for a hoodie some mornings. Every one of us tries to keep the HVAC cooling set to where it doesn’t run all day. However, my husband loves it cool to sleep & I often suppose a chill while wonderful in front of the TV. Yet, it’s nothing compared to the dentist’s office. That location is constantly cold cold whether it’s the dead of Winter or a hundred degrees outside. Going to the dentist is not something I appreciate doing anyway, so the cold temps in the office makes it even tougher. The last time I was in there, I absolutely asked the doctor why in the world it was constantly so cold inside. The answer caught me by surprise. They keep it so cold on purpose. The reason being that the warmer the air, the more humidity. The humidity then gives all bacteria & viral growth to take place much more readily than in an office where the HVAC is going most of the time. Who knew?
