This makes a lot of difference and helps to keep the heating and air conditioning from getting out of the house.
I shouldn’t be so upset with having window air conditioners, but I am tired of the noise and draft that comes with them. We have always had window air conditioners and they work really well. We have two window air conditioning units that keep our entire home cooled. It only ups my energy bills by about ten percent, which for us is a let more than twelve dollars a month. I keep wondering if it wouldn’t be cheaper to have central air conditioning, but I can’t really complain about the energy bills. We have a four bedroom home and it is always comfortable. We leave the doors open to all of the rooms, when they are in use. When not in use, we keep the doors closed and the window shades are always pulled down. By pulling the window shades, we are able to keep the solar heating out of the rooms. My husband put new insulation around the doors and windows and he installed weather stripping. This makes a lot of difference and helps to keep the heating and air conditioning from getting out of the house. I talked to a HVAC technician and he told me that was what Zone Control would do if we were to have central air conditioning installed. I thought my idea through and decided that it probably wouldn’t be worth it to continue pushing central air conditioning on him. We were already doing everything we could do to keep our home efficient and since there wasn’t anything wrong with the window AC units there was no reason to have them replaced.
