# Information

This model is of a house with four rooms. It models the temperature changes, including a radiator in each room, controlled by a single thermostat. The model also incorporates the notion of changing outside temperature.

#### Compare Locations

Using weather data from Mathematica data paclets, compare temperatures inside and outside between Illinois (left) and Arizona (right):

#### Electricity Usage and Cost

Using electricity cost data from Wolfram|Alpha, analyze the cost of different indoor temperatures, depending on heating strategies:
