I desperately want to have HVAC zone control in my house. I live with three other people in the home. We all have our own rooms and own HVAC preferences. Certain people want heating all year while others seem crazy for AC. Deciding on one centralized temperature has gotten to be such a pain. It is like World War III by the thermostat on the wall. Every hour someone is changing the temperature and irritating the other occupants in the house. We can’t agree on how much heating and air is good for the season. The HVAC system is not going to last if it constantly has to adjust to a new temperature. The swings have been so large that the HVAC has literally switched from AC to heating and back to air conditioning again. I think adding zone control will lessen the tension. I would need to get a ductless mini split for the house. Then every room would get an indoor air handler and smart thermostat to run the temperature in that specific room. Each person in the house could decide on the heating and air in their bedroom. The issue is that the living room, kitchen and bathroom would have their own unit too. Either we would need to take turns on who controls those rooms or all agree on those temperatures. Maybe people will be more likely to compromise since their bedrooms will be the right temperatures. I know I won’t care as much about the kitchen temperature if I get heating at night while I sleep.
