I really don’t know exactly what I was thinking but I chose to go the summer without my HVAC.
This is quite unusual for me given that I live far enough south that our air conditioning is on the better part of 8 months of the year.
However, I wasn’t going to be at home for the summer due to a business need. Primarily, I’m on the road for my company much of the summer to try and win back some of the business that we lost due to the pandemic. When Covid hit, our offices closed and all of the employees worked from home in the air conditioning of their respective homes. The company I work for is not some huge corporate conglomerate that has endless resources. No, we’re a small family owned firm that has been around for over 50 years. Being small helps to navigate something like a pandemic. But being relegated to the air conditioning of home was like putting on handcuffs. We simply couldn’t physically spend time with our clients and that’s one of our biggest values. That means I’m on the road literally all summer. Being that I’m single, I am the one who got this duty. So I’m living in one hotel or motel room after another. I have found that I miss the HVAC equipment from home. It’s so consistent at HVAC cooling that I obviously took it for granted. But I am finding a few places that have really superior wall HVAC units. They seem to be the very best so that’s what I look for when I get off the interstate and am figuring out where to stay.
