When my husband and I first got together, we had a lot of differences to overcome.
- At the core of it we have the same values and beliefs, but there are definitely differences in the ways that we live our lives.
Personally, I’m the sort of person who doesn’t need much to be happy. I live in a basic home, I have a big dog, and I’m pretty happy. My husband, on the other hand, is a bit high-maintenance. He requires a modern apartment with advanced indoor air quality control, the trendiest gadgets, and he has an annoying little designer dog. Unfortunately, his dog feels the same about the AC. Over time, I’ve started to like his prissy little dog more than I ever thought I could. However, the indoor air quality control continues to be a problem that we struggle with. I’m simply not the type who requires a lot of air conditioning or wants to sit in extremely cold indoor air. I find air conditioning to be artificial and expensive. I think that my big, fluffy dog feels the same way. He’s prone to being overheated, and yet he prefers a more moderate indoor air quality, just like me. When our continual air conditioning battles started impacting our overall relationship, my husband and I decided that it was time to make some HVAC upgrades for our dogs’ sakes. We called out the local heating and cooling repair shop and asked what they recommended for people who couldn’t agree on a temperature setting. That’s when we first learn about zone controlled heating and cooling. It turns out, you can easily have different temperature zones in your home through shuttling air from one room to the next with flappers in your air ducts. We decided to have the zone control heating and cooling installation performed. Today, the dogs are much happier and so are we.
