My family is sort of different.
- Not that we’re all weird.
But literally, we are very different. There is one aspect where that has been a very noticeable difference. That would be the fact that we all have such varying degrees of HVAC comfort. The internal thermostats of each individual family member is all over the map. I tend to like it much cooler than the rest. While the others bicker about the smallest of HVAC increments. The winter weather is for sure when these differences really come out. I am not one to just be passive when it comes to the house and HVAC during the winter. Around here, it pays to be prepared and proactive when it comes to managing the cold weather. Once I feel that first cold breeze of late autumn, I reach out the HVAC people. They come out to inspect and service our HVAC. This way we can rest assured that the HVAC is in top form for the coming cold. During this period, I also make sure that I have done everything I can to make sure the house is sealed up tight. This saves a ton on the utility costs due to HVAC use. However, we still struggle to find a happy medium when it comes to the HVAC setting. I hope to have solved this with a recent HVAC tweak. I had the HVAC people come out and augment our HVAC to a zone controlled system. Now, there are 5 individual HVAC zones that can be customized. I’m hoping this will allow all of us to find our happy place when it comes to being warm this winter.
