I think that for me, the pandemic and all the changes it forced did have a few positive effects. By large, the pandemic year was absolutely tough. My partner lost his job but was able to find some online work thankfully. I was sent home to work in the a/c safety of home as they closed the offices with the zone controlled HVAC. We were fairly new at the homeownership thing as we had been in our home about 3 years. So making the mortgage and our bills was the main focus as we rallied the best we could from inside the a/c of our home. It wasn’t easy to get accustomed to all the online meetings and doing work from home but we got it figured out. We were also in super saver mode instantly. That summer time was the warmest our home had ever been as we absolutely pushed up the thermostat setting during the heat of the afternoon to save on HVAC cooling costs. This was absolutely the first time I had actively thought of the HVAC equipment really. So I decided that I would get consistent when it came to caring for the heating and cooling equipment. That starts with decreasing the air filter each month without fail. I even called the HVAC supplier to sign up for the HVAC service plan in order to get the HVAC repair seasonally. We saved so much on heating and cooling costs that we thought we’d put those savings toward servicing our HVAC equipment. So me getting it together when it comes to our HVAC responsibilities was a sizable and that came out of that pandemic year.
