I learned a lot about myself and my family during the time that we were cooped up inside the central air conditioning of our home.
Like a lot of families, this is where we spent the better part of like 18 months.
There was no going to the zone controlled HVAC of the office. I had to work remotely from the air conditioning of my home. And that wasn’t the most easy thing either. We have four kids. Two of them were out of the house and at university. But when the pandemic hit, we had a houseful again. So the spare bedroom that was my oldest son’s was his again. My wife took over the home office and I was sort of the odd man out. I went from trying to share with my wife to finding a quiet spot under an HVAC air duct to work. The HVAC cooling sure made it easier that first spring and summer. But eventually, I knew what I had to do if I was going to make this working remotely thing work. I had to take back the garage. But there wasn’t any heating and cooling out there so even when I did clean it out, it was going to be steaming out there with no HVAC cooling. That’s when I focused on just getting the space organized. Because once that happened, I knew that I was going to have the HVAC professionals install a ductless heat pump in the garage. And once that was done, I had my own space with the very best HVAC cooling in the house.
