Heating and cooling so important due to my work

When you work outside in the elements in all seasons, the heating and cooling of home takes on a special importance.

And as the years go by, that HVAC comfort is becoming more and more of a focus.

I’m just about to be 50 and have been working full time in the elements for the past 31 years. And I love what I do for a living. Working with heavy equipment and shaping landscapes is something that I just love to do. As much as I love the heating and cooling comfort of home, I love being outside as well. The idea of working inside some office with zone controlled HVAC just wasn’t ever very appealing to me at all. Still, as I age, the elements are getting a bit tougher to deal with. That is especially true in the dead of winter and the middle of summer. Some of the equipment I work with have enclosures that provide some protection from the temperatures. And there are few that even have heating and cooling available. Even so, when I get home at night, I really just have to stop for a bit and just soak up the air conditioning. I know that window is closing on how much longer I can work outside. I’m hoping I can make it to my mid fifties before I transition to the zone controlled office for the last few years of my career. However, I don’t know that I’ll be able to do the office thing. So I may just go as long as I can and then just retire. Maybe I’ll get a sunroom added to my house and put a ductless heat pump in there so I can be outside and have HVAC.
