Our home isn’t legitimately big, only around fifteen hundred square feet.
And it is fairly modern plus well-insulated. Our boiler plus central a/c do a fantastic task of heating plus cooling the house. There’s one small problem that I’ve noticed, however. If we close the doors of the three family rooms, which are located at the farthest distance from the heating plus cooling units, those rooms don’t gain as much of the heat and/or cool air. My nice friend and I are empty nesters, but our animal is like having another child – mainly because we dote on him so much. If we leave him in the house when we go away, we shut the family room doors to prevent him from jumping on the beds plus getting his fur on the comforters. But when we arrive home, the family rooms are significantly cooler in the winter season plus warmer in the Summer than the rest of the house. I remember when we had the house built, the builder discussed that the sitement of the heating/cooling unit in the basement would determine its efficiency in reaching each of the rooms of the house. My nice friend and I discussed the pros plus cons of placing the units closer to the main residing area of the home. Bedrooms, he explained, are constantly not as important, as ceiling fans in the Summer plus blankets in the winter season will compensate for any inefficiency. I now wonder if we let him talk us into a disappointing decision. I even called another Heating plus A/C supplier to discuss the situation; He explained that the ideal location of the boiler/a/c unit is one where there is a supply of natural gas, an exhaust vent, plus fresh air circulation. His explanation made much more sense than that of the original builder.
