Tonight we are having a Halloween party at our house for a whole bunch of kids and it’s crazy around here. There are teenagers in the living room, with the gas fireplace turned on because they all say that they are freezing cold. There are middle schoolers in the family room, and they are all hot because they are dancing around and doing karaoke. And then there are some little kids playing in the basement, and they say that it’s too cold down there and they are asking if I’ll turn on the electric space heaters in the basement. Between the three different groups and age ranges of kids, I’m about to go nuts. Not only are they all bothering me with either the heating settings or the air conditioning settings, but they are dripping apple cider and crumbling popcorn and donuts every single place that they go. I tried to get them to sit in the kitchen, but it’s like they have to keep moving at all times. I will admit that the indoor temperature was pretty cold when they first arrived. But I wanted to keep the heating turned off because I know how hot certain people can get at parties and I was trying to make sure that everyone was either warm enough or cold enough. Of course, kids can always find something or another to complain about, and before too long, I had some wanting me to adjust the thermostat so the air was colder. Then of course, in the other room we had all the freeze-babies who were begging me to turn the furnace on eve warmer. I wish we had zone control heating and air conditioning. At times like these, a zone control HVAC unit would be amazing to have!
