There were so many things about this relocation that had me a bit frazzled.
For one thing, I’m nearing the end of my career and jumping to a new office was not what I had planned. But that was part of the succession plan the company wanted so I was in. This new office is awesome. It even has zone controlled HVAC. There is a thermostat right inside my office. I can’t tell you how nice it is to be able to customize the heating and cooling inside my office. That’s sure not the way it was back up north. I worked in an office where I had to bring a space heater for the winter and a fan for the summer. The commercial HVAC in that building wasn’t the best. So I’m completely knocked out by this new commercial HVAC and the zone controlled HVAC. I’m equally knocked out by the heat pump in my home. When I left the north, I wasn’t so sure that a heat pump could replace the gas furnace when it came to my heating needs. Granted, I’m further south now but that doesn’t mean there is no need for heating. So I was a bit skeptical when I encountered the first good cold snap in my new house. I had seen the forecast and was prepared to get that old space heater out. But the heat pump was amazing and took care of my heating needs like it was nothing. I’m just so pleased that all the stuff that I was so nervous about has turned out to be so great. And when I retire, I won’t have far to move because I’m already in the land of the heat pump.
