Dave explained that this was because they had a multi split air conditioner; the air from one room did not circulate through to the other so the temperature stayed consistent throughout the house
A few weeks back our neighbors Dave and Sally invited us over for dinner. It was one of those hot, sultry days in July when the heat made us feel lethargic and heavy. Sally prepared a wonderful summer salad and Dave explained thta he’d just outfitted his air conditioner with a programmable thermostat. The temperature in his house was always “just right,” he said, and he welcomed us over to enjoy it with him and his family over dinner. So, since we weren’t terribly busy and didn’t really want to heat up the house by cooking, we agreed to go over. The first thing we noticed when we stepped inside the house was the absolute crispness of the cool, air conditioned air. It was almost like walking into a sunless winter field–it wasn’t cold, but it was definitely crisp. We could also tell that the air conditioner had superior air purification since the air also felt clean as we breathed it in. Sally was in the kitchen preparing the meal. Interestingly, the heat from the stove and oven didn’t affect the temperature of the living room where we sat while we waited for dinner. Dave explained that this was because they had a multi split air conditioner; the air from one room did not circulate through to the other so the temperature stayed consistent throughout the house. Dave also told us how his new programmable thermostat was working out and explained that it was helping save utility costs since it allowed him to better control when and how the HVAC unit operates–even when he and Sally are not home.
