Most people assume that large houses are the end goal for everyone… Then for example, many people love to talk about all of the pros of having that sizable house! All of those sizable rooms to have tons of beds plus televisions–people also assume about the film room area where there are tons of chairs plus room to lay out plus watch the newest films. I am an owner of a sizable beach home however; I can tell you it is not all rainbows. It’s extravagant to keep a sizable beach home heated and cooled! A house with only two or three bedrooms can stay perfectly comfortable with only a single heating and cooling component installed. When you live in a home that has six bedrooms and five bathrooms, that becomes impossible. With houses this size, you must have at least four heating and cooling units in order to maintain a constant temperature throughout. My partner and I found the best solution was to install multiple HVAC zone controls. These additional thermostats work to set the heating and cooling levels for each room they are in. By placing these both in problematic rooms and rooms we only use for guests, we’re able to close these rooms and not heat or cool them when they’re empty. By being able to choose how much of the house gets heating and cooling at any given time, my partner and I save lots of money on our utility bills.
