I’ve been working from home for over a year now.
Once the virus hit this region, all companies were ordered to have their employees work from home.
My boss said that we’d only be home for a few weeks, but that slowly transitioned into a few months and now it’s been over a year. The benefit to the virus was that it showed my boss that not everyone needed to work at the office in order to be productive. Thankfully, I’ve been able to remain in my home office. Since I’m at home all day, I’m able to stay on top of things around the house. I can fold laundry in between emails, clean on my lunch break, and I can even hire professionals to come get stuff done since I’m at the house. Last week, I noticed the AC was cutting on and off more frequently than normal. I noticed it while I was working because the outside condenser unit sits right outside my window. I heard the equipment cutting on and then cutting off a minute later. It did this all afternoon. Before my work day was over, I called the local HVAC company and scheduled an appointment. I wanted to have the AC system looked at by a certified HVAC professional before anything got worse. Thankfully, since I was already at home, they were able to send an HVAC professional to the house within a few hours. I would never have been able to have my AC system serviced so quickly if I was working in the office!
