This may be a little odd question for you experts here but I’m making house vs condo considerations and the major factor is the heating costs which are included in the condo maintenance
In the house I’m considering, there are 3 levels. The landlord tells me it’s a single thermostat. Is it relatively easy to convert a natural heating system to create 3 thermostats? I mainly plan to use the 1st floor for the first few years and would like it in the mid-70’s (health reasons) while keeping the other floors at mid-60’s. How efficiently would this work given that the house has an open layout? Would it lead to any energy savings for me at all or would the heating costs be equivalent to keeping the whole home at mid-70’s?
I know it’s hard to make a judgement with little information but give me the best you can do
In the future, if possible I’d like to create a separate heating thermostat for a single bedroom on the 3rd floor (it has doors you can shut so that should insulate the heat in). Do people do this?
