Most people love working from home and I guess I can understand that.
However, I have a suspicion that the people who enjoy working from home also have a really good heating system in their home during the winter.
That’s not the case at my house, unfortunately. I have a really old electric furnace that always seems like it’s right on the brink of dying. I mean, it wheezes and bangs and then there’s always this annoying ticking sound going on whenever the heating system is running. I have been thinking about trading it in and getting a newer high efficiency furnace for years, but it’s one of those things that I’ve just never gotten around to doing. I know that I probably should do it, but I just don’t want to have to spend the money on it. However, if I’m going to have to keep working from home for much longer, I’m going to have to go ahead and do it whether I want to or not. I know that the indoor air quality in my home isn’t quite up to what it should be and it’s all because of this terrible furnace in my house. I wish that I could upgrade my furnace and call it a business expense. That way I could just send the HVAC company bill to my employer. I really don’t think that’s going to fly, though. I’m sure that they would tell me that it’s my own problem, even though I wouldn’t mind it if I weren’t being forced to work from home for so long.
