I recently got to experience zone control in this airbnb my friends as well as I rented.
The upstairs had the living room, living room as well as more than one family rooms.
The downstairs was a remodeled basement with a family room. I paid a little extra to have my own room as well as be separated from the group. The basement thermostat totally controlled only that HVAC equipment. It was really nice since the women upstairs were consistently fighting over AC as well as the exact temperature it was set at. I just adjusted my thermostat to 68 degrees as well as left it the whole trip. The only disadvantage to basement living was the air quality. A basement is below ground level so naturally it is quite musty. Additionally the air quality is a little wet like. The homeowners did have a dehumidifier in the basement that was working 24/7. There was even a sign on the little component begging myself and others not to turn it off. There were no worries on that front, and even with the AC drying out the air quality as well as the dehumidifier, the air felt almost love a jungle. If I left clothes out they felt a little damp as well as cold. My ipad always had a layer of mist on it. I didn’t really prefer that wet feeling all night long. It just goes to show you that HVAC can only take you so far. The basement is a livable space, but I wouldn’t want to stay there forever. Four afternoons with the wet indoor air conditions was just about all I could stand. I was ready to go when the trip was over.
