The company even gave me a bonus to stay working remotely
There really wasn’t that much to making the decision when I really think about it. But not working inside the zone controlled HVAC of work wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought. In fact, it turned out to be just the right thing for the rest of my career perhaps. My husband also was locked out of the commercial HVAC in his office. But he tends to deal with change and adjustment much better than I do. That resolve was so good for me in those first few months working from home in our own air conditioning. The very first thing we did was clear out the guest room and set up a serious home office. This was ultimately the best decision we could have made. Having a proper work environment inside the residential HVAC of our house was essential for what came next. To my utter amazement, I really like working from home in a very real way. My schedule was much more flexible working from home in my own air conditioning. Surprisingly, I was far more productive and the quality of my work was much better as well. So when the offices open back up, I just didn’t want to go back. Fortunately, I was able to continue to work remotely from the air-conditioning at home. Honestly, I can’t imagine working in an office again. The company even gave me a bonus to stay working remotely. With my husband’s blessing, we took that bonus and had a ductless heat pump installed in my new home office. Now, I even have the sort of quality heating and air that rivals the zone controlled HVAC that I left.
