My roommate and I argue a lot

My roommate and I argue a lot, and I think that it is a shame.

I wish that I could tell you that all of our arguments were for a good reason, but honestly, most of our arguments have to deal with the thermostat and the HVAC units.

I wish that we didn’t have to argue about the thermostats. I am sure that I could quit arguing about the thermostats, but if I were to drop the issue with the thermostats, I know that I would never be comfortable in my house again. In my opinion, the perfect temperature for a house to be at is 72 degrees. This falls well within the range for a normal thermostat setting, and although most people might prefer the temperature to be one or two degrees cooler, this is where I am at. If my roommate was willing to lower the temperature only one or two degrees, I would be more than willing to compromise on the thermostat to end the arguing. However, if you were to ask my roommate what his perfect temperature for the thermostat is, he would tell you that he prefers the temperature to be at 60 degrees. In my opinion, this is freezing cold. It is okay if the temperature outside is 60, but 60 degrees feels cold inside your house with the HVAC units running. I have tried compromising, but my roommate refuses to compromise, and he refuses to let me change it even though we both have a right. He feels that if the thermostat is set any higher, then I should have to pay more for electricity since he doesn’t want it to be warmer. We argue all of the time, and I am not sure what to do. Should I move out and find a more reasonable roommate with similar HVAC preferences?
