When I was growing up, my family constantly had strict rules & the two of us did things a certain way, and none of us were allowed to mess with the thermostat to adjust the temperature control settings.
- My father was especially strict about this & said the temperature control constantly had to be set at 71 degrees in the Wintertide & 71 in the summer.
I remember how it constantly bothered me because I constantly felt a bit chilly in the Wintertide & in the summer time I never felt like it was cool enough. Whenever I would try to complain to my mother, she said that the two of us had to do things that way & I was not allowed to question it. It wasn’t until I became older & started a family of my own when I realized that my father was right for doing things that way. He had to save currency on the energy bills in order to put food on the table for us children. Both of us had to do our chores correctly so that the condo was nice & clean. My parents both worked so the two of us all had to do our part to live a happy & comfortable life. No matter how much us youngsters didn’t understand things or thought certain things were unfair like the temperature control settings, ultimately it led to everybody being happy & comfortable enough. With my family, I undoubtedly have the same rules with the temperature control settings! Fortunately, I have a smart thermostat so nobody else can adjust the temperature control settings anyway & I follow as many energy saving tips as possible.
