Like a whole lot of other people, I am working from the HVAC comfort of home now.
It’s the only way I can effectively work while managing the pandemic risks.
It was probably inevitable that this would be the case anyway. Our company was considering the move to remote employment already. I imagine that this situation will continue long after the pandemic has run its course. However, it hasn’t been the easiest of transitions. Initially, I was just trying to find a quiet corner of the house where I could get some HVAC to sit and work on my laptop. But, I quickly realized that I would be needing far more than that. So, I tried to set up an office in the corner of our bedroom. I positioned a little card table right under an HVAC vent and went to work. Again, this wasn’t the spot. For some reason, I really need to work in a cooler environment than my family prefers. Finally, I went to the guest room. This time, I didn’t fool around. I moved all the furniture out and took over the room entirely. It was much better because I was left alone to do my work. However, I ran into the HVAC setting problem once again. Finally, I called the HVAC people up to get some help with this issue. They came out and were able to augment our existing HVAC unit so we could create zone controlled HVAC in our house. Now, we have 4 zones with one of them being the guest room. I can now customize the temperature in my new home office and get some work done.
