Are you a person who prefers to go out and get all the latest gadgets? Or do you prefer to hang back and just let other people spend the high prices while you watch and see what happens? Personally, I am the ladder, plus I’m not quick to embrace any kind of technology, much less heating and A/C technology.
- That being said, I have two brothers who are both into gadgetry and technology.
They both have all kinds of heating and A/C technology that I do not have. Both of them have what is called heating and A/C with zone control. Heating and A/C with zone control means that you set your A/C unit up so that your house is split into separate areas called zones, and each one of those zones can be controlled separately from the others. In other words, you can use less A/C in a room that does not have people in it, for example. To illustrate, both of my brothers have two story houses. Both have sizable homes, however one brother lives with only his partner, plus the other brother lives only by himself. Therefore, it just makes sense to turn the A/C off on whatever floor you are not using. At least, you can turn the temperature control setting up a few degrees on whichever floor does not get the most use. That will normally be the ground floor, of course. However, when I go to visit my brother, I normally stay in an upstairs living room, which means he has to control the temperature on the top floor. Even within the zone of the top floor, he can make the A/C temperature lower in my living room than it is in the other living rooms. It’s truly kind of amazing.
