When my hubby and I bought a historic property in Minneapolis, MN, my associate and I were blissful by the hardwood floors, ornate moldings and wide front porch, however my buddy and I never considered how strenuous the high ceilings, huge windows and several room would be for temperature control… The winters in Minneapolis bring frequent uneven temperatures in the single digits! It’s not unproper to experience sub zero conditions, and while the Summer weather isn’t quite as severe, the temperature climbs into the mid eighties and brings high humidity.
- The cost of keeping a comfortable property contributes to approximately fifty percent of energy expenses, however despite paying excessively fancy energy bills, not every room in the property felt comfortable.
There were areas that were regularly chilly and others that tended to become overheated. With a single temperature control handling the demands of the whole house, there was no way to answer these issues, plus, the upstairs of the property tended to be warmer than the downstairs. There are also several rooms my associate and I never use. My buddy and I were paying to keet and cool empty living space. I finally consulted with a local Minneapolis Heating and Air Conditioning supplier about the problem… She commanded updating to zone control, however fortunately, our boiler, cooling system and air duct were new enough to accommodate the improvement. A series of valves were installed into the air duct to direct airflow. My buddy and I now have temperature controls mounted in the individual rooms that allow customized temperature settings. The difference has been amazing. My buddy and I are saving a significant amount of currency on yearly energy bills. There is far less wear and tear on the heating and cooling system and yet my family is much more comfortable, but each family member is able to adjust temperature in their home office to their preference.
