When you have a large family things get very complicated.
It’s hard enough to have a couple of kids running around when you are working full-time. However, when you are juggling a full-time job and four children things get extremely challenging. This was something that my wife and I realized early on when we began quarantining this year. All of a sudden, we were trapped in a house where we had no peace and quiet. The kids were constantly fighting with each other. Even mundane things like the indoor air temperature control system became grounds for sibling battles. This is when my wife and I started contemplating our central heating, cooling, and air quality control system for the first time. Maybe it wasn’t wise to have a centralized air temperature control system when there were so many diverse opinions about air temperature under one roof. We considered having a full heating, cooling, and ventilation upgrade in the form of zone control heating and cooling. However, eventually we decided that it was more cost and energy effective if we installed separate heating, cooling, and ventilation devices throughout the house. We quickly located some affordable mini split ductless heating and cooling systems that were energy efficient and easy to maintain through simple air filter changes. We placed a mini split ductless heating and cooling system in each room of the house. After that, our energy bills dropped within a month. Even better yet, our kids stopped bickering so much about the indoor air temperature controls. Don’t worry, they promptly found new things to fight about.
