When I walked into my office the other afternoon, Iwas shocked by how cold it was.
The weather was colder than normal that day, but I still wasn’t accustomed to my office feeling so frozen.
My office is situated in a portion of our finished basement, and there is a ductless mini split unit that controls the heat and air. I usually keep the ductless mini split unit running all day long because I prefer to have my office temperature controlled at all times. The ductless mini split unit doesn’t take long to heat or cool the space, but if I had to wait even a minute for my office to feel comfortable again, I would never utilize the space. Part of having an at home office is to use it as much as possible, so it would be a complete waste of space if I didn’t use it. It should also be mentioned that I use my office all day long. I do take breaks throughout the day, but I’m constantly leaving and entering my office. This is why, when I entered my office that morning and it felt cold, my mind went immediately to the ductless mini split unit. When I took a closer look, I immediately realized that it wasn’t on at all. I pushed the “on” button and it began to run. However, after a few minutes, the ductless mini split unit shut off. I took some pieces apart and realized that the air filter needed to be cleaned out. Once all of the dust and debri was removed, the ductless mini split unit returned to heating my office normally.
