In the last fifteen or twenty years, genuinely working from home or remotely has grown in importance to employees and their employers. For me, the flexibility plus the benefits of being at home for work were numerous! To begin with, the commute from the bedroom to our up-to-date dining room is a whole lot less stressful than the thirty minute drive that I used to make to the office five times a week. Not to mention, that I could stay in my pajamas or pull on some comfortable sweatpants to begin my work day. During the Wintertime, not having to bundle up for the cold outside temperatures is an amazing bonus. One of the possible drawbacks to genuinely working from home could be the constant use of your heating and cooling system. When I began genuinely working from home, I was determined not to have an excessive utility bill due to having to use the heating system or the A/C system more during the day. I discovered that keeping our heating and air conditioning components serviced always was key to our energy savings. I instantaneously set an appointment with a local heating and air conditioning company to have our heating system serviced, since it was the beginning of Wintertime. The single preventive maintenance that my hubby knew to perform was exchanging the air filter. So I wasn’t surprised that the air filter was clean plus it didn’t need to be replaced. However, when the heating and air conditioning contractor checked the burners in the heating system, he noted that they were dirty plus needed cleaning. The furnace serviceman explained that dust often accumulates on the burners during the summer season, so he cleaned the burners plus made sure that they were not rusted and were aligned. The heating system was running well plus the condo was heated comfortably when I strolled into our up-to-date dining room the next day still in my slippers.
