The threat of the ongoing pandemic did stop or slow down many human activities. Despite the dangers, life has to go on and at work, we had to make several adjustments to be able to cope with the situation. For once, we do not report to work every day except for Tuesday and Thursday. And that’s half-day attendance. The purpose is to have a physical and real-time interaction while observing social distancing. With the dangers of covid-19 in mind, the business has had to rearrange the office to reflect the situation we are dealing with. One major change I noticed when I walked back to the office was the additional air purifiers we have all over the office. Clearly, the internal HVAC serviceman has been hard at work. His department was tasked with ensuring the central air conditioning is in perfect condition. The cost of HVAC maintenance has significantly dropped but the company still pays for the air conditioner service plan to cater for any technical problems, the heating and cooling equipment might develop at any point. That also means no new tenders for HVAC products for sale in the near future as long as the current HVAC system is underutilized. The technician has now enrolled for a course in HVAC technology to learn more about HVAC and how to perform HVAC installation and better understand seer ratings. He is the only one in his department so that basically makes him an essential employee because without him around to troubleshoot our problems, we would have to rely on an outsourced HVAC business to service our quality air conditioner.
