For the longest time, me and my wife would complain about each other’s preferences when it came to what temperature to set on the thermostat. We had assumed that this argument didn’t really have a solution. She swears I like it freezing and I swear that she likes it ridiculously warm. It was all we could do to try and compromise on one particular temperature, but when we tried this, neither of us were really satisfied. When our attention turned to getting our HVAC unit maintenanced in the spring, we decided to do some research to see if there was any solution to our problem with fighting over the thermostat. Apparently, neither of us were paying very much attention to the advances in HVAC technology of the past few years or more. I say that because we had no idea that such a thing as zone-controlled HVAC existed. As it turns out, you can place a thermostat in every room of your home, and truly be able to set the temperature to whatever you please for that room. All that is required is for dampers to be installed in the ducts of each room, so that the airflow can be increased or restricted as needed, based on the temperature of the thermostat for that room. All of this time, we could have been enjoying our own idea of the perfect temperature in our home and never end up bothering each other as a result. We do sleep in the same room however, and sometimes, I will admit that I creep away to the living room couch, where I can turn down the temperature and enjoy the A/C as I sleep!
