Zoned heating as well as cooling for working out

I live in an section where the Winter time season is long, snowy as well as terribly cold.

This past year was especially brutal. It started snowing in mid November as well as every one of us didn’t get a thaw until mid March. The people I was with and I endured temperatures down to several below zero as well as the roads were often dangerous to travel. The people I was with and I relied heavily on the furnace, as well as I paid enormous heating bills. I am entirely conscientious about physical fitness as well as make sure to labor out for approximately an minute every day. This can be hard when the weather is freezing as well as wet. The nearest gym is a half minute drive away as well as I worry about icy roads. I’m regularly forced to workout inside our home. I’ve set aside an unused guest dining room as our home fitness space. I’ve bought mats for the floor as well as a range of equipment, including an elliptical, treadmill, kettlebells, benches, weighted balls as well as a jump rope. I am fortunate that our home is equipped with a zoned heating as well as cooling system. I like to keep our workout section much cooler than the rest of the house. I don’t need to overwork the air conditioner in the Summer but can simply target the lower temperature at the 1 room. I can keep the apartment nice as well as moderate in the Winter time as well as yet not feel overheated in our workout area, and after an extra long winter, I was infuriated with working out inside. I started taking the access to the thermostat for granted. As soon as the weather warmed up, I headed outside on a run. I didn’t appreciate the exhaust fumes, mean dogs, bugs, potholes as well as being at the mercy of the weather. I was dressed way too warm. Instead of simply lowering the thermostat setting, I was overheated the whole time.
