Are you a person who likes to go out and get all the latest gadgets? Or do you prefer to hang back and let other people spend the high prices while you just watch and see what happens? Personally, I am the ladder, and I’m not quick to embrace any kind of Technology much less HVAC technology.
That being said, I have two brothers who are both into gadgetry And Technology.
They both have all kinds of HVAC technology that I do not have. Both of them have what is called HVAC with Zone control. HVAC with Zone control means that you set your air conditioning system up so that your house is split into different areas, called zones, and each one of those zones can be controlled separately from the others. In other words, you can use less air conditioning in a room that does not have people in it, for example. To illustrate, both of my brothers have two story houses. Both have large homes. Yet one brother lives with only his wife, and the other brother lives with only himself. Therefore, it makes good sense to turn the air conditioning off on whatever floor you are not using. At least, you can turn the thermostat 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 bedroom, which means he has to control the thermostat on the second floor. Even within the zone of the second floor, he can make the AC temperature lower in just my bedroom than it is in the other bedrooms. It’s really kind of amazing.
