I never thought I’d be comfortable working anywhere but the zone controlled HVAC of the office I’ve been in for nearly 19 years.
A creature of habit, I was pretty entrenched with being at the office.
There have even been numerous offers to me with other companies that I’ve turned down because I just wasn’t up for making the change. You can imagine how I was when the pandemic started. I had to leave the zone controlled HVAC comfort of the office for my own house. Let myself and others say that it was a sizable change. And I’ve stated, I’m not exactly comfortable when it comes to change. Plus, my wife really wanted me to work from home. The two of us both had to deal with the youngsters reading remotely. Both of us were in the A/C morning in and morning out. But the two of us started to find our rhythm before too long. That started with getting out of our A/C to just go outside for walks or to play games in the evening. And before long, I got the handle on how to do the online meetings I needed to have as well. By fall, I was doing more work, with a higher quality than I ever had produced. That sort of stayed with me as time passed and then the office with the zone controlled HVAC reopened. It hit me then that I’m far better off laboring from my house rather than going back to the downtown office. So I was able to square that with my bosses. Now I just stay home. I cleared out a room and we added a ductless heat pump so at least it feels like I’m in the zone controlled HVAC at the main office.
