I work from home, and lately I have had such a hard time focusing.
Have you ever had to deal with a constant loud noise while you are trying to remain on task? Because I have! Now a lot of people will get distracted by weird things, but my problem all comes down to my busted, old air conditioning system.
This comes as no surprise, given that my air conditioning system is about ready to turn off for good. However, I still keep relying on the air conditioning even though it could break any day. It is standard for the air conditioner to make loud banging noises at random intervals throughout the day. You can imagine, for someone who is trying to focus entirely on their work this can be extremely distracting. If you are wondering why I don’t just do something about our heating and A/C system, well I have my reasons. It’s a lot easier to just procrastinate and not deal with the problem. I’m sure I am blowing things out of proportion, however it’s always a pain to schedule these services with the heating and cooling company. On top of that, I am not sure how much money the repair would cost, so I don’t want to immediately rush to get it repaired because I want to make sure that I can afford it first. I have spoken to the Heating as well as A/C servicemen that have come out here for services in the past, and they all report that it’s time to get the air conditioning fixed. The banging noises are abnormal and are easily the result of parts rattling around inside the unit. While I understand all of that, I still am going to take my time with scheduling the service.
