The basement office is musty and damp

Three months ago, my colleagues and I started working from home.

I thought it would be a temporary move that would probably last a few weeks.

It seems clear now that we will be working from home for a very long time. My husband is working from home as well and we didn’t have a dedicated space for our office. We decided to turn the basement into an office space for both of us. We spent an entire weekend cleaning and painting. By the time we were done, the area resembled a nice office space with room for our desks, computers, and office equipment. My husband and I worked in the area for several weeks before we started to notice a problem with the indoor air. Because their office space is underground, the area can become damp and humid. We were having some trouble with our office equipment and I started to worry that the issue was due to the damp air. My husband suggested that we buy a dehumidifier to put downstairs. I thought the dehumidifier would be expensive and I protested at first. When my husband showed me all of the dehumidifiers available online, I was pleasantly surprised. We found the perfect dehumidifier for our office and we didn’t have to spend an arm and a leg. The dehumidifier works great and I don’t worry about the indoor air quality any longer. The indoor air is clean and crisp and the smell of old, musty basement has completely left the area. If the coffee was old and bitter and tasted terrible, I’d swear I was back at the office.

I’m leaning towards getting HVAC zone control for our home

I realize a lot of people got cats while in the lockdown however the two of us made the choice to rescue a ferret instead.

I have always wanted a ferret although I understand that they need lots of attention in addition to I was never at the residence to give them any.

With the lockdown, I knew I would be legitimately working from my residence for the foreseeable future. Perfect, right? So the two of us decided to ferret proof our beach residence in addition to then went and picked up our new ferret. We named him Buddy and he is really fun… However, our Heating, Ventilation and A/C machine has not been working right ever since the two of us brought Buddy home with us. It is always entirely frosty in the bedrooms and rather hot in the other areas of the residence. I know this is because the two of us leave the bedroom doors closed most of the day while Buddy is out of his cage, but that doesn’t create fantastic air circulation. Because all of the bedrooms in the beach residence get the same amount of cooled air, the small bedroom areas are frosty and the larger portions of the beach residence are severely warm. I was able to learn that you can put up a baby gate to keep ferrets out of rooms. I tried that and Buddy easily climbed right over the baby gates! So I might need to look into getting zone control for the beach residence so we will be able to keep the whole beach residence comfortable. I plan on calling our Heating, Ventilation in addition to the A/C machine corporation to get a quote tomorrow. Either that, or I need to ferret proof every room in the beach residence and I’m not sure if that will work.

I need either HVAC zone control or I need to ferret proof the whole house

I actually know a lot of people got pets during the lockdown but every one of us made the choice to rescue a ferret instead.

I have always wanted a ferret but I recognize that they need a bunch of attention and I was never home to provide them any.

With the lockdown, I knew I would be working from home for the foreseeable future… Perfect, right? So every one of us decided to make our dwelling ferret proof and then went and picked up our new ferret. We named him Teddy and he is a bunch of fun. However, our Heating and Air Conditioning equipment has not been working properly ever since every one of us brought Tedy home. It is always chilly in the bedrooms and rather sizzling in the living room and kitchen space. I guess this is because every one of us leaves the bedroom doors closed most of the day while Teddy is out of his cage… That doesn’t create very nice air circulation. Because all of the rooms in the property get the same amount of cooled air, the small bedrooms are way too cold and the larger portions of the property are too warm. I managed to learn that you can put up a baby gate to keep ferrets out of rooms and I actually tried that but Teddy just climbed over the baby gates. I’m thinking about getting zone control for the home so every one of us can keep the whole property comfortable. I plan on calling our Heating and Air Conditioning equipment company to get a quote tomorrow. It will be doing that, or I need to ferret proof every single room in the property and I don’t for certain if that is possible.

I think we will need HVAC zone control for our ferret

I realize a lot of people got dogs while in the lockdown however both of us decided to rescue a ferret instead.

I have always had the desire to get a ferret even though I realize that they need a great deal of attention plus I was never at the dwelling long enough to give them any.

With the lockdown, I knew I would be working from my beach dwelling for the foreseeable future! Perfect, right? So both of us ferret proofed our beach dwelling plus then went plus picked up our brand new ferret. We decided to name him Johnny plus he is really fun. Our Heating plus Air Conditioning appliance has not been working right ever since we were able to bring Johnny home. It is always terribly chilly in the bedrooms plus especially warm in the residing room plus dining room. I know this is because both of us leave the bedroom doors shut most of the time while Johnny is out of his cage. That doesn’t create very enjoyable air circulation… Because all of the rooms in the beach dwelling get the same amount of cooled air, the small bedrooms are really cold plus the more sizable portions of the beach dwelling are warm. I was able to learn that you can put up a baby gate to keep ferrets out of rooms plus I tried that but Johnny just climbed directly over the baby gates… So I might need to look into getting HVAC zone control for the beach dwelling so both of us can keep the whole beach dwelling comfortable. I actually plan on calling my Heating plus Air Conditioning appliance corporation to get a quote tomorrow. It will either be that, or I need to ferret proof every single room in the beach dwelling plus I don’t know for certain if that is possible.

Using HVAC zone control for our new ferret

I know all kinds of people who got cats during the lockdown but all of us decided to rescue a ferret instead.

I have always wanted a ferret but I know that they need a great deal of attention and I was never at the household long enough to give them any.

With the lockdown, I knew I would be working from my household for the foreseeable future. I thought that was perfect. So all of us ferret proofed our household and then went and picked up our new ferret! The people I was with and I named him Chica and she is a great deal of fun. However, our Heating and Air Conditioning device has not been working right ever since all of us brought Chica home. It is always incredibly freezing in the bedrooms and rather boiling in the family room and kitchen. I know this is because all of us leave the bedroom doors closed most of the day while Chica is out of her cage. That doesn’t create good enough air circulation. Because all of the rooms in the household get the same amount of cooled air, the small bedrooms are really cold and the greater portions of the household are warm. I learned that you can put up a baby gate to keep ferrets out of rooms and I tried that but Chica easily climbed right over the baby gates, so I might need to look into getting zone control for the household so all of us can keep the whole home entirely comfortable. I am planning on calling our Heating and Air Conditioning contractor to get a quote tomorrow. Either that, or I need to ferret proof every room in the household and I don’t know if that is possible.

Zone control for new ferret owners

I know a lot of people got dogs during the lockdown but we decided to rescue a ferret instead.

I have always wanted a ferret but I know that they need a lot of attention and I was never home to give them any.

With the lockdown, I knew I would be working from home for the foreseeable future. Perfect, right? So we ferret proofed our house and then went and picked up our new ferret. We named him Freddy and he is a lot of fun. However, our HVAC system has not been working right ever since we brought Freddy home. It is always super cold in the bedrooms and rather warm in the living room and kitchen. I think this is because we leave the bedroom doors closed most of the day while Freddy is out of his cage. That doesn’t create very good air circulation. Because all of the rooms in the house get the same amount of cooled air, the small bedrooms are freezing and the larger portions of the house are warm. I read that you can put up a baby gate to keep ferrets out of rooms and I tried that but Freddy just climbed right over the baby gates. So I might need to look into getting zone control for the house so we can keep the whole house comfortable. I plan on calling my HVAC supplier to get a quote tomorrow. Either that, or I need to ferret proof every room in the house and I don’t think that is possible.

I didn’t realize that my sister had radiant heated floors

When we were forced to evacuate due to flooding I made sure to take all of our pets. My sister wasn’t too thrilled because this included all 12 of my pet tarantulas… She doesn’t really like spider pets genuinely much even though I couldn’t leave them behind to drown. I was thankful that my sister was understanding and let me take the tarantulas to her residence. She didn’t have a shelf for myself and others to put our pets on, like I have at my own residence. I basically had to put their tanks all on the floor in the kitchen area. Shortly after our arrival we opted to go out to get something to eat. When we got home my sister pointed out the fact that our tarantulas were running around in their tanks. It was freaking her out, and this was truly unusual behavior. It is exceptionally rare for all 12 of the tarantulas to be doing it at the same time, but it wasn’t long before I was able to determine the cause. It turns out that my sister has underfloor heating in her residence. My spiders were getting completely overheated on the heated floors while we were having a bite to eat. Being cold blooded critters, they get extra active when it happens to be warm. So I moved the spiders off of the heated floors and onto the kitchen table. They all settled back down in a little bit of time. I will need to get a new shelf for the spiders though. I don’t actually think that my sister will be cool with them staying on the kitchen table for a few days and I don’t want to put them back down on the radiant heated floors either. Hopefully we can go back home soon.

The spiders were a little overheated because of the heated floors

When the bunch of us had to evacuate due to flooding I made sure to take all of my pets.

Much to our sister’s dissatisfaction, this included all 12 of my pet tarantulas. She honestly doesn’t prefer our spider pets much but I couldn’t leave them behind to drown. Thankfully my sister was understanding and let me take the tarantulas to her property. She didn’t actually have a shelf for me to put my pets on, like I have at my property, so I had to put their tanks all on the floor in the kitchen area. Shortly after our arrival we all decided to go out to dinner. When the bunch of us got back my sister noticed that the tarantulas were running around in a crazy manner. It was freaking her out, and this is odd behavior. It is exceptionally odd for all 12 of the tarantulas to be doing it at the same time, but it finally occurred to me the cause. It turns out that my sister has underfloor heating in her property. My spiders were way too warm on the heated floors while we were out to dinner. Being cold blooded pets, they get incredibly active when it is super warm. So I moved the spiders off of the heated floors and onto the table. They were able to calm down in a short period of time. I better go out and get a new shelf system for the spiders. I have a feeling that my sister will not be happy with them living on the table for a few days and I don’t want to put them back down on the radiant heated floors either. Hopefully we can get back home soon enough!

The spiders were going crazy because of the radiant heated floors

When the two of us had to evacuate due to flooding I made sure to take all of my pets.

  • Much to my sibling’s horror, this included all 12 of my pet tarantulas! She doesn’t enjoy my spider pets particularly much but I couldn’t leave them behind to drown! Thankfully my sibling was understanding as well as let me take the tarantulas to her dwelling.

She didn’t have a shelf for me to put my pets on, like I have at my dwelling, so I had to put their tanks all on the floor in the living room. Soon after my arrival the group of us opted to go out to dinner. When the group of us got back to the dwelling my sibling was the first to notice that my tarantulas were running around in their tanks… It was freaking him out. This is certainly not normal behavior. It is actually strange for all 12 of the tarantulas to be doing it at the same time too. But it wasn’t long before I figured out what was happening. It turns out that my sibling has underfloor heating. My spiders were getting especially warm on the heated floors while the group of us were having dinner. Being cold blooded pets, they get very active when it is warm. So I moved the spiders off of the heated floors as well as onto the kitchen table. They all settled back down in a little bit of time. I better go out as well as purchase a new shelf system for the spiders though. I don’t really believe that my brother will appreciate them living on the kitchen table for a couple of days as well as I don’t want to put them back down on the radiant heated floors. Hopefully we are able to get back home sooner than later.

The spiders didn’t like the heated floors too much

They all settled back down in a couple of hours.

When all of us had to evacuate due to flooding I made sure to take all of our pets. Much to my sibling’s chagrin, this included all 12 of our pet tarantulas. She doesn’t love spider pets absolutely much even though I couldn’t leave them behind to drown now could I? Happily, my sibling was understanding and let myself and others take the tarantulas to her household. She didn’t have a shelf for myself and others to put our pets on, like I have at my household, so I had to put their tanks all on the floor in the family room. Shortly after our arrival all of us went out to dinner. When all of us got home my sibling was the first to notice that our tarantulas were running around like crazy in their tanks… It was freaking her out, and this is not common behavior. It is exceptionally uncommon for all 12 of the tarantulas to be doing it at the same time. It wasn’t long before I figured out the cause. It turns out that my sibling has underfloor heating. My spiders were getting absolutely overheated while being on the heated floors while all of us were having dinner. Being cold blooded pets, they get extremely active when it is warm. So I moved the spiders off of the heated floors and onto the dining room table. They all settled back down in a couple of hours. I better go out and get a nice shelf system for the spiders though. I don’t believe that my sibling will love them living on the dining room table for a few days and I don’t want to put them back down on the radiant heated floors either. Hopefully all of us can go back to our household soon.
