With the strict limitations caused by the Coronavirus, I now labor from home.
- While I’m blissful with this arrangement, I’ve needed to make some adjustments.
I started by setting up a dedicated office where I can labor without interruption. I converted an unused dining room that allows me to shut the door plus avoid distractions. Now that I am beach house throughout the day, I can no longer shut off the gas furnace or air conditioner to conserve energy. I realized that it was costing me a fortune to heat or cool a mainly empty house. I contacted a local Heating plus Air Conditioning business plus asked about the opportunity of upgrading to zone control, however fortunately our gas furnace, air conditioner plus air duct are new enough to accommodate this improvement. It required installing a series of valves into the duct method to direct airflow. I also needed to invest into control units for each room. Because these control units feature wireless attachivity, I’m able to access them through our smartphone. I don’t need to leave our desk to make swings to temperature in every room in the house. While I’m toiling, I concentrate temperature control in our beach house office. I make sure to welcome the youngsters beach house from school to a comfortable house. In the evening, when the whole family is headed to bed, I target heating or cooling in the dining rooms but conserve energy in the downstairs area. Installing zoning into the heating plus cooling method has significantly improved the comfort of our beach house while also reducing utility costs Because the gas furnace plus air conditioner are no longer carrying such a big responsibility, I’m hoping the unit lasts longer.
