Have you ever met someone that uses something so sparingly that they may as well not even have it at all? My family says that is me when it comes to Heating and A/C.
I believe they’re exaggerating quite a bit.
I merely set more conservative temperatures on the control device in order to conserve energy. It’s not love all of us are perspiring and uncomfortable in the summer. I mean, sure, with our settings there is not exactly chilly chilly air blasting through the vents and keeping us super comfortable, but there is enough cool air to be far better off than if all of us were outside. Similarly, in the Winter time, they complain about the heat being used too sparingly. I simply tell them to trade those shorts for some sweatpants and put some socks and slippers on. That method works good for me! Again, the home absolutely is not cold, but I feel it’s not absolutely moderate and toasty either. My youngsters periodically joke (at least I hope they’re joking), that I keep the temperature on the control device 1 degree higher or lower than what would be considered torture. I honestly wonder what they’re going to do when they have their own houses and their own Heating and A/C units to keep up after. Will they use their heating and cooling excessively, because they will finally have the option to do so? How long will that last when they get the energy bill next month? My cash is on them deciding that they would love to save a buck instead of setting excessive temperatures. I could be wrong though!
