After working for the same supplier for 5 years, I was able to arrange our responsibilities to handle the job absolutely from home.
- I am delighted to set our own hours.
I no longer need to get up to an alarm, dress in contractor casual and brave rush hour traffic. I most often spend our workday in our pajamas, sipping tea and listening to sixties rock-n-roll. I figured out easily swiftly that I need to be comfortable to be productive. However, our weekly energy bills were draining our budget. I used to adjust the temperature control to conserve energy while I was at work. Now that I’m at home, I was putting way more stress on the oil furnace and air conditioner. I was also paying to maintain the entire beach house at the perfect temperature. Since I only occupy a single room throughout the afternoon, this was a sizable waste of money. I hired a local Heating plus Air Conditioning contractor, explained our problems and asked for suggestions. He immediately advocated making an upgrade to zoned heating and cooling. I imagined this would require major renovations and a whole new oil furnace and air conditioner. Instead, all he needed to do was install valves into the duct method and smart temperature controls into each of the rooms. The valves regulate airflow through the ducts. The temperature controls allow customized temperature settings. Because of WIFI linkivity, I make adjustments through an app on our smartphone or our ipad. I don’t need to get up from our desk or interrupt our workday to raise or lower temperature, then plus, I’m saving a tremendous amount of money by only heating or cooling occupied areas of the house.
