There were plenty of things that I actually took away from all that time inside the central air conditioning of my home during the pandemic.
For one, working anywhere else but the commercial HVAC of our offices was just not something I had considered. So when we were all sent home to work from the safety and comfort of our own central air conditioning, it took some getting used to. But ultimately, I figured out how to do the online meetings and accomplish most of what I did in those offices downtown. Still, I missed that perfect commercial HVAC a bit. I learned some stuff at home as well. I learned that my family is a whole lot more patient and caring than I would have guessed. With all of us working and learning from home, I was a bit afraid that things were going to get ugly. But that wasn’t the case at all. In fact, it seemed as though we were all getting along better due to our situation. Another thing I learned is that I really need a bit of privacy for just me. Nothing against my family but I require a bit of quiet and alone time. This wasn’t happening happening until I made the garage that place for me. I called the HVAC company and they installed a ductless heat pump. I did some reorganizing and the next thing I knew, there was a wonderful spot with great residential HVAC and I could just relax and enjoy thinking my own thoughts. I’m still loving the garage and the ductless heat pump these days as well.
