There was a window that wasn’t officially insulated when every one of us had them all updated for more energy efficient ones
I’ve never been a sizable fan of office parties or celebrations. For one, I labor with these people and in most cases, they report to me as well. Working together as much as every one of us do inside the zone controlled HVAC is enough, I don’t need to socialize with them as well. But there are particular function I simply can’t miss. One of those is the Christmas celebration. Years ago, I was given an instant read thermometer gun because I tend to be the control device hawk. Everyone got a sizable laugh and I played along. I also tossed it in with the junk next to our workbench as I had no need for the temperature gun. At least that’s what I thought at the time. Years later, that temp gun would end up saving me a ton of cash. Some of years ago, I observed a consistent draft inside our condo and that’s no good. I hate the plan of not having a cozy condo in the Winter time due to a draft. And I loathe the plan of the added HVAC heating costs that will eventually come from that draft. So I sat out to find it by caulking every gap I could find. Still, the draft was there and unabated. It dawned on me that I could use that temperature gun to find the leaking HVAC heating. That’s just what I did. There was a window that wasn’t officially insulated when every one of us had them all updated for more energy efficient ones. While a bit ironic perhaps, it was stealing our HVAC heating. Thanks to a gag gift, I was able to get our condo cozy once more.
