If you’re reading this in the middle of winter, you already know what the problem is. If you have a typical fireplace, chances are it’s not distributing the heat in your living room or main room to other places in that room. We’re not talking about heat exchangers that transfer heat from room to room. We’re talking about just simply distributing the heat in an enclosed space.
As you can imagine, this can be a serious problem. You wouldn’t want your room to be scorching hot on one spot and frigid cold in the others. Sadly, this is the way most homes are set up thanks to the lack of proper equipment. Heat exchangers can definitely help distribute warmth in an enclosed space, but you can’t just rely on them alone. You have to make sure that you truly need this piece of equipment.
You also have to make sure whether this heat transfer option is the very best for your set of circumstances. You might be better off with a different option, or you might need special types of heat exchangers. Unfortunately, there’s no way to truly answer this unless you do some heat tracking. You have to take initiative. You can’t just say it’s cold on one spot and hot at another.
You need documentation and active tracking. This is why you should use your iPhone to track your home’s heat. There are lots of trackers out there and you don’t really need anything fancy. While you can’t use your phone as a thermometer, you can use it to record the heat levels from one spot to the next. You can just make notations on a standard notepad or note taking app.
As long as you can correlate distance, location and time, you should have a fairly good working map of an internal space’s heat distribution. Once you’re able to get that kind of data, you can then make strategic decisions as to what type of accessories or equipment you need to ensure proper warmth distribution. By simply choosing to record and track this type of information, you actually position yourself to save quite a bit of money.
The last thing that you want is to blow a tremendous amount of cash for something that you don’t need. Talk about an overreaction. It’s like burning down your house to get rid of ants or to kill a few mice.
Do yourself a favor and do a little bit of tracking using mobile apps like notepads. You’d be surprised as to what you’d find and this can help you make a truly informed decision as far as options, gear and equipment are concerned. We have listed a tremendous range of note taking apps on this website. Factor in your specific needs, in this case, warmth distribution tracking, when making your selection. Since we have laid out all the possible options available on the iPhone, making the right decision shouldn’t be that hard. Do yourself a favor and take proactive steps.
