My home is big.
It provides approximately 3 thoUSAnd square feet of living space.
There are lots of rooms, plenty of big windows and high ceilings, making it a challenge to heat and cool. There are several rooms that we seldom utilize, then some areas of the home are shaded by trees and get hit by the frigid Winter time wind and tend to believe freezing. Other areas are exposed to afternoon sunlight and often believe overheated. I have more than three children and each 1 of them has easily strange comfort preferences. When we first moved into the house, there was a single thermostat to handle temperature. Every one of us needed to walk to the dining room and make manual adjustments. My older child prefers a easily cool environment and was always lowering the setting. This caused a lot of wear and tear on the a/c in the summer time and some major complaints from the rest of the family. My youngest kid prefers a warmer living space and tends to adjust the setting so high that the rest of us sweat. She caused some easily luxurious heating bills. We’ve finally solved the arguing, energy waste and fancy energy bills by upgrading to zone control. Although replacing the outdated furnace and a/c was a big project, it made a big improvement in our comfort. I’m also saving a superb deal of money. Not only are the current heating and cooling units far more energy efficient, however we now have a thermostat in each room. These smart thermostats are able to be accessed through an app on our smartphones, tablets or PCs. Each thermostat handles the comfort level of just that 1 room. The kids can personalize settings in their home offices. Every one of us avoid heating and cooling empty rooms. Every one of us can cater to the demands of numerous areas of the house.
