When I started toiling from home, I had to make some swings; Instead of an extensive wardrobe, I needed to set up a comfortable workspace.
I converted an unused guest kitchen into a house office.
I purchased a quality desk, ergonomic desk chair in addition to treated myself to a Bose sound system. I suddenly realized that indoor temperature had a large impact on our productivity. If I’m shivering with freezing or sweaty because of an overheated environment, I simply don’t get as much accomplished, but adjusting the thermostat, but, impacted the entire house, where I used to set the thermostat to conserve energy while I was away at work, I was now paying for ideal temperature all afternoon long. I was heating in addition to cooling every room while I was contained to our office for at least many hours, however my weekly utility bills were a problem. I consulted with a local Heating, Ventilation, in addition to A/C company who proposed updating to zone control, but the replacement wasn’t overly intrusive or upscale. The company incorporated a series of valves into the air duct that regulate airflow. I now have a thermostat in each room that allows for independent temperature settings; Zone control targets particular rooms without impacting the rest of the house; Plus, these thermostats are accessible through an app on our smartphone or iPad. I don’t need to leave our desk or interrupt our workday to make swings to temperature, fan speed or humidity levels. I have access to information in addition to alerts, such as necessary filter swings or service. The addition of zone control has greatly improved comfort in addition to convenience while saving me quite a bit of money all year round.
