As i first set up my job in order to entirely from a home office, I thought I had the ideal situation. I really looked forward to arranging my time-table to my preference, and avoiding the annoying distractions on the office atmosphere. I was excited to work in my pajamas and tune in to my favorite podcasts. I figured we would save money on company clothes and commuting to and from work. I didn’t realize how easily I would get off track at home. Evidently someone is always knocking on the door, my phone will get notifications all the time, and there always something sitting around our house that needs handling. Plus, I hadn’t counted on what it would cost me to maintain the entire house at the ideal temperature all day, everyday. When I used to go out to go to work, I would turn off the thermostat to conserve energy. Now that I was home the entire day, the furnace and air conditioner have been shouldering a much heavier workload. Although I remain in one room room, working all day, I was heating and cooling every single room to the same temperature. I finally called up a particular HVAC contractor and inquired about the newfangled possibility of zone control. The upgrade was not overly costly and allows me to save a tremendous money. I can now heat or cool the office without affecting all of those other rooms in the house. I have also learned to ignore anyone who knocks with the door and shut my telephone off. Since I have made these corrections, I absolutely love working at home.
