When I first began working from home, I thought I’d enjoy it.
I liked the idea of being in the comfort of my own space and having access to everything I could possibly need.
I set up my belongings on the kitchen table and tried to limit my distractions during my normal work hours. For the most part, I was able to keep myself disciplined enough to complete my assignments, but I began to dread working from home. The kitchen was humid and there was a musty smell along with lingering smells from dinner the previous night. I want to go back to the office where the air quality was better. One day, while I was mumbling about how much I hated working in my kitchen, I decided to call an HVAC company to come service my HVAC system. It was long overdue for a tune up, and I thought it could help. The HVAC professional who serviced my HVAC system told me that one of my biggest issues with the humidity. To combat it, I needed to find a dehumidifier to eliminate the excess moisture from the air. Once it was removed, the odors would lesson and I’d be able to work in a comfortable space. I’d never considered a dehumidifier before, but it made sense. The HVAC professional also suggested that I have a whole house dehumidifier added to my HVAC system so the entire house could reap the benefits. I agreed, and once it was installed, I couldn’t believe the positive difference in air quality in my house, but especially the kitchen.
