Zone control improves new home comfort
While I’m working, I concentrate temperature control in my new living room
With the strict limitations caused by the Coronavirus, I now work from home. While I’m ecstatic with this arrangement, I’ve needed to make some adjustments. I started by setting up a dedicated office where I can work without interruption. I converted an unused living room that allows me to shut the door and avoid distractions. Now that I am new home throughout the day, I can no longer shut off the gas furnace or cooling system to conserve energy. I realized that it was costing me a fortune to heat or cool a mainly empty house. I contacted a local Heating, Ventilation & A/C dealer and asked about the chance of upgrading to zone control, fortunately my gas furnace, cooling system and ductwork are new enough to accommodate this improvement. It required installing a series of valves into the duct idea to direct airflow. I also needed to invest into temperature controls for each room! Because these temperature controls feature WIFI connectivity, I’m able to access them through my smartphone. I don’t need to leave my desk to make fluctuations to temperature in every room in the house. While I’m working, I concentrate temperature control in my new living room. I make sure to welcome the teenagers new home from school to a comfortable house. In the evening, when the whole family is headed to bed, I target heating or cooling in the living rooms but conserve energy in the downstairs area. Installing zoning into the heating and cooling idea has significantly improved the comfort of our new home while also reducing utility costs Because the gas furnace and cooling system are no longer carrying such a substantial responsibility, I’m hoping the device lasts longer.
