It’s hard to recognize sometimes how far heating and A/C technology has come.
I hear the stories from my father about how they once got through the summers of his youth.
It doesn’t sound like that much of a great time to me. We live in a region where the cooling side of the heating and A/C is the most important aspect of a heating and cooling unit. While we do indeed get to use the heat while I was in our mild winter, it is the cooling that dominates the HVAC work load. My dad tells tales of having to just be still while it was an absolutely hot day outside. They had an evaporative cooler and some fans, that was it for any sort of heating and A/C cooling. He remembers having to get all the stuff he wanted to do done prior to supper or after 7pm. The middle of the day was just so scorching hot that the only thing he was looking for was shade and a fan. That story makes our new circumstance even that much more amazing. I just had the heating plus A/C people augment our existing heating and cooling system to a zone control unit. That means there are now 4 separate heating and A/C zones inside the house. This also means no more disagreements or anxiety where the heating and A/C setting is brought up . I absolutely love it when I get home from work. Relaxing in a cool setting is so good after perspiring through a job all day. Having the zone control means that I can keep the space where my room is much cooler than the rest of the house.
