Getting my dog used to the HVAC system was a challenge

About a year ago I made a big decision when I adopted my dog, but he is honestly a great dog except he has a lot of special quirks.

He has a neurological disorder that limits his mobility and makes him rather difficult to deal with on a daily basis. He was continually falling into things, flopping onto the ground, and panicking when he cannot get back up. However, we make it work, and we spend a lot of time together; Unfortunately, it seems like there are various triggers in life that make him get scared and more frantic, and apparently, indoor air quality control is one of his most terrifying areas of life! Yesterday I could not understand why he kept barking and growling as we sat around in ice chilly a/c and enjoyed the fact that it was brutally warm outside. I was happy to be resting indoors, with a cooling program chugging away in the background to supply fresh and clean air to the apartment. I was more than happy to sit right in front of the window AC units and appreciate all of the cool air that was passing through the vents. However, clearly my dog did not think the same way about the indoor air temperature control. He was flinging himself over around the room barking, looking honestly upset at the a/c units and the box fan on the floor. If we turned off the a/c devices, my dog calmed right down. But then the indoor air temperature swiftly increased until he started panting and complaining about the indoor air quality. At the end of the day, he had to get used to the AC component and I had to keep my cool.
