I work in a cold storage facility. For anyone living in the south, that probably sounds wonderful at first glance, since you go to work in a literal ice-box while everyone else suffers through the heat. It’s great, until you leave work shivering and it’s also winter outside. For that reason, I’m one of the few southerners who invested in a good-quality heater for my home. I can’t stand coming home and going to bed in a cold bedroom, so I’m willing to do what I need to do to avoid feeling like I’m at work even when I sleep. I talked to some coworkers about it, and they’ve said the same thing. One of them invested in zone control thermostats, so they could keep their bedroom or other rooms of the house warm while the remainder of the house is unaffected. Sounds like a great way to fix this problem of mine, because it takes forever for my house to warm up to my liking! I called an HVAC company to send a technician out and have them install the zone control thermostats in my house, and after installation, I made use of the bedroom thermostat and quickly fell asleep in the warm air. I was elated to get my first energy bill after the installation, and found that my usage (and bill) had dropped! I fixed two problems at once. I was happy to get some quality rest at night now, so I feel more prepared to work in the freezer!
