I live on a homestead. My husband and I thought it would be wonderful to have a lot of children and spend our life farming. We wanted to live and eat on the land, which we lived and farmed on. It sounded amazing, until the realities came into play. At the kids kept coming,and also the work of managing a farm was greater than we could handle, some days. We were a ten person family with one wood stove, therefore it was clear, times were changing. We needed to consider some sort of upgrade to a full air conditioning system. We needed to help make our lives a little more simple, with all the people we had to please. When we called the HVAC provider for an assessment, they sent out a very knowledgeable technician to help us choose a specific upgrade. I had no idea how many new options there were in HVAC systems today. He looked at the number of people in the family, and made really sincere suggestions, my favorite being zone control air conditioning. This app would help us to become more energy and cost efficient in our heating and cooling needs. We would be able to help program the thermostat to direct very specific temperatures into different areas of the house, that we were, or were not in, so there would be zero waste. I loved that with more and more people in the family, we could please all the different desires, body temperatures and thermostat settings being asked for. We hoped this would definitely tame our energy bill and bring much more comfort to our home.
