There wasn’t much of a question in anyone’s mind about pumping ice cold air through our extensive duct work and air events
For most of this year I really was not bothered by the isolation created by the pandemic. I don’t have a big problem with spending time alone and working on my own projects. I’m a big fan of having empty days and room to pursue my creative endeavors. As an introvert, I do not need to speak to other humans every moment of my life. However, it turns out that even an extreme introvert can get tired of this lifestyle. Honestly, I think part of the problem is being trapped indoors with the same humans for the past year. We are all getting cranky with each other and it is creating family squabbles about everything down to the central heating, cooling, and air quality control system. I never thought that our thermostat, heating system, and air vents would be such controversial subjects in our lives. However, as time goes on and the outdoor climate changes it seems that our indoor air temperature preferences are becoming a major source of struggle for everyone. Over the summer I think people could get along with their air conditioning systems as we tried to combat the outdoor heat and humidity. There wasn’t much of a question in anyone’s mind about pumping ice cold air through our extensive duct work and air events. However, as the outdoor temperature dropped our diverse preferences for heating settings began to rise to the surface. It turns out, everyone has a different opinion on using the central heating system or relying on the traditional wood burning fireplace. For the past month we have been at each other’s throats with extremely hot heads, all because of our stupid indoor air temperature.
