My office has always been a really uncomfortable space to work in.
I share a small office with 3 other people and it’s never been a functional space.
I always hated my desk, the layout, and the air quality. This year though, I decided that I was going to make my office environment a more enjoyable space. I bought a brand new desk for myself, a new chair, and some new office accessories to make things more enjoyable. While these things helped, I really wanted to do something that made an even bigger difference. I wanted to change the air quality! The first thing I did was find the building maintenance man and I told him that I needed the HVAC system tuned and a new air filter that directly impacted my office. I knew sending an email would never work, so I personally found him and asked for the HVAC maintenance. Then, I bought a small, portable dehumidifier. One of the biggest complaints me and my office co-workers have is about the humidity levels. Where we live, the humidity is thick all year round, but it’s especially suffocating during the summer. I knew that general HVAC maintenance would help, but a dehumidifier would help even more. When I brought the dehumidifier in for the first time, my coworkers were thrilled! During that first day of work, the dehumidifier collected a full bucket of water from the air! We knew it was humid there, but we didn’t know that there was that much water in the air.
