Trying to heat and cool our large two story apartment has proven to be really hard for us.
- Every one of us live in the northern part of the country and if you’ve ever been up here in the winter, you know that the hot and cold temperatures can get down so low it’s not even funny! Occasionally I’m shocked when I look at the temperature on the thermometer outside.
And sadly, occasionally I’m even more shocked when I check the temperature inside our apartment and our thermostat reads at a number as low as 62 degrees! When you have a honestly large apartment enjoy ours, there really are a lot of pros and cons. Obviously, having a lot of living space can be a blessing, however trying to pay for the heating and the air conditioning in all of that living space can honestly drain your bank account if you’re not careful. We’ve tried a lot of bizarre things to help keep up with the cost of heating and cooling, and most recently all of us decided to try something called zone control heating and cooling, zone control heating and cooling is when you have more than 1 thermostat proposal in your house or office building. That way, you can adjust the temperature in the room or rooms you are really in without having to use the air conditioning or heating to change the temperature in your entire apartment or building. It makes so much sense to myself and others that now I don’t know why all of us didn’t assume of it before! Now, when it’swarmout in the summertime, all of us adjust the temperature on the thermostat for the upstairs living rooms at evening because all of us enjoy to sleep in the air conditioning; But with our new zone control thermostats, all of us don’t have to keep the entire apartment cooled down to 66 degrees all evening long.
