Why it’s useful:
By altering the temperature of individual rooms, different locations in the house can be changed depending on who is using them. This can be especially useful for larger families, each member of which might have different preferences to their own environment. Room temperature can also be adjusted depending on whether or not the room is being used – for example, air flow can be stopped during the day when everybody is at work/school, but can be allowed at night. Babies can also be cared for by ensuring that the room is a suitable temperature for them to sleep in.
