I know that for me, the pandemic and all the changes it forced did have a few positive effects. By and large, the pandemic year was entirely tough. My fiance lost her work 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 heating and air conditioning. We were fairly new at the homeownership thing as we had been in our apartment 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 straight-forward to get accustomed to all the online meetings and doing business from home but we got it figured out. We were also in super saver mode instantly. That summer was the warmest our home had ever been as we entirely pushed up the temperature control setting while I was in the heat of the morning to save on heating and air conditioning cooling costs. This was entirely the first time I had actively thought of the heating and air conditioning device really. So I decided that I would get consistent when it came to caring for the heating and cooling equipment. That starts with adjusting the air filter each month without fail. I even called the heating and air conditioning supplier to sign up for the heating and air conditioning repair program in order to get the heating and air conditioning service seasonally. We saved so much on heating and cooling costs that we thought we’d put those savings toward servicing our heating and air conditioning equipment. So me getting it together when it comes to my heating and air conditioning responsibilities was a large and that came out of that pandemic year.
