I thought having to work outside of our offices downtown would be the end of me.
For one, I worked a long time inside that office and I just couldn’t imagine working anywhere else.
Plus, the office downtown has the best zone controlled HVAC you could imagine. There was an independent thermostat just outside my work space. It was heaven to work there. Then, there was the whole social aspect of not working at the office. It just didn’t make sense to me how a person could work from home all alone all day. So when we got sent home to work in our own air conditioning because of the pandemic, I didn’t know what would happen. Well, surprise, surprise, working from home in my own air conditioning wasn’t a bad thing at all. I thought it would take forever for me to get accustomed to working from home. That just wasn’t the case. In fact, I have never done better work with more productivity in my entire career. I was stunned to say the least. So were my supervisors. I took over a guest room in our house and made it into an office now. This is my permanent office as I’m staying at home to work remotely. Given how well I’m working, it was sort of a no brainer. That led me to have the HVAC company send out and HVAC technician who installed a ductless heat pump in my new permanent home office. Now, I have the sort of perfect air conditioning comfort that I had in the offices downtown.
