When we got sent home from the office I worked in at the outset of the pandemic, I was surprised. I guess I really didn’t understand the gravity of the virus and how serious the entire situation was. That is a tendency of mine. Seeing everything glass half full can end up fooling a person now and again. But I also have to admit that I wasn’t entirely upset about having to leave that office. Where we are, there just isn’t much winter weather and the heat pumps can take a break. But once the spring rolls around, the temperature start popping and the need for HVAC cooling grows. The problem was that the old office had some pretty old commercial HVAC equipment. And I was sort of glad to not have to face another summer sweating all day because the air conditioning couldn’t keep up with the temperatures outside. I got to work that summer in my own air conditioning and while it was better than the office, it still wasn’t all that great. I had taken over a storage room at the end of the house as my office. But it was hot out there. So I had the HVAC professionals install a ductless heat pump out there and wow, what a difference that made. I’ve never been more comfortable at work in my life. The benefits of working from home were privacy and good HVAC cooling. This resulted in the best job performance of my career. When the office reopened, the bosses had no problem with me working remotely and only coming in for mandatory meetings.
