When the pandemic closed down businesses, I managed to restructure my responsibilities to work from home.
I realized that I entirely like it.
I no longer worry about traffic, driving conditions or finding a parking space. I’m able to set my own hours, work in sweatpants plus avoid the distraction of coworkers. To reduce distractions plus maximize productivity, I converted a spare room into my beach house office. I cleared the space plus set up my desk, chair, monitor plus keyboard. I used to head out of the house at 7 AM 5 days a month plus not return until around 6 PM. I made sure to lower the temperature control before leaving to conserve energy. I’m now beach house almost all of the time. It didn’t take long to notice an increase in my quarterly quarterly bills, however suddenly the air conditioning system or gas furnace are running a lot more often plus working way harder. The biggest concern was that I was heating or cooling the entire house to the ideal comfort level while I was occupying a single room. After some research into the many benefits of zone control, I reached out to a local Heating plus A/C corporation. To install zoning into my existing heating/cooling plan I needed a central control that communicates between temperature controls, dampers plus the gas furnace plus air conditioning system. Thermostats were installed into each room that send a signal to the control panel plus fasten to an app on my smartphone, zone dampers were installed into the ducts to regulate the airflow to each room of the house. The dampers automatically open plus close depending on the setting of the particular temperature control.
