Since I’ve been running a bed and breakfast out of our beach house here at the coast, I’ve had to make a lot of decisions. It’s been interesting, no doubt. Meeting all of these new people and actually being a hostess full-time has been a roller coaster of a ride. I’ve had to make decorating decisions, advertising decisions, culinary decisions, and maintenance decisions. But I think that the best decision that I’ve made so far was the decision to put zone control heating and air conditioning in all of my guest rooms upstairs. I have six bedrooms in the upstairs part of my house that I rent out to guests. Before I had zone control heating and A/C installed up there, the thermostat situation around here was a nightmare. We would have five or six guests here at a time, and every one of them would seem to want the thermostat to be set at a different temperature! And you really can’t please everybody all of the time. My grandma used to say that, but now that I own a B&B, I know that it’s the honest truth! One person would be freezing and begging me to turn the furnace on, while just down the hall, another guest would be burning up and asking if we could turn on the air conditioning! And since I want all of my guests to be happy and to make a return trip sometime in the future, the zone control heating and air conditioning was really the only way to go. It’s made my life so much easier, and I only wish I had done it before I ever opened up for business!
