Office parties have never been our thing.
We’ve seen way too many people completely ruin their careers due to an office party, which is painful to watch and just makes zero sense to us.
So, we were entirely quite surprised that we easily got something cool from this year’s Christmas party. We tend to be the office Heating & A/C setting police. Somebody needs to do it or it wouldn’t be fair to the entire office. So, our colleagues made us the instant temperature reading gun and it was a fantastic laugh and we thought it was quite a fantastic gag. Still, we ducked out of the party as soon as humanly possible. Once we got home, we started thinking about the temperature gun and what we could do with it. We had been saying for years that we wanted to be proactive about getting the most out of our Heating & A/C during the winter. Our home tends to run cold due to our horrible Heating & A/C setting and drafts. Well, that temperature gun was the answer for us, because we decided to use it to see if we could find the space that was bringing the cold air in. What we found shocked us. Our home was leaking Heating & A/C treated air in more than one spot! No wonder it was costing us so much money to heat the house. So much of our heat was traveling out the door. We were able to mark all of the spots. Subsequently, we got them all sealed up. That little temperature gun ended up saving us hundreds of dollars in heating costs last winter.
