I found out early on that I liked working from the central air conditioning of my house.
And I was shocked by that realization.
When I started hearing the rumors that we’d be sent home from the zone controlled HVAC comfort of our offices, I was horrified. In fact, I went to bosses and managers pleading my case to remain inside the commercial HVAC of the office as part of the skeleton crew. I was rebuffed in my request and found myself turning the room into what I thought was a temporary office. That’s not how it has turned out at all. That house office became undoubtedly permanent once I had the ductless heat pump installed. My house office is at the end of the house, exposed to sunshine all morning and exposed on 3 sides. It’s warm there even with the air conditioning on. So when I took the supplier up on its offer to stay remote, I took it. They undoubtedly didn’t even have to give me the bonus incentive. But I was glad to take it. I put it right toward having the HVAC professionals come out and install a ductless heat pump in my now permanent office. It works amazingly well and is super efficient. I can turn down the main control unit during the peak heating of the morning and save on air conditioning costs. That’s how efficiently the ductless heat pump provides cooling to my office. I like the freedom that working from home has given me. I start really, undoubtedly early so I have the freedom to do other things at times during the morning. As long as I get my work done, appear for online meetings and meet expectations, the rest of my day is mine.
