We always had decent air quality in the house though and our temperature control settings were reasonable
While it’s true that a lot of people have a hard time with roommates, I actually became friends with mine. These were the greatest group of guys I could have hoped to live with. Everybody was serious about their studies, we all agreed on similar temperature control settings, and everybody took care of chores around the house. We all had a pretty good system worked out between us that was entirely fair. One roommate even had a good idea to invest in one of those washable air filters. I never even heard of those, but it turned out we would save a lot of money. Instead of buying a ton of expensive air filters that you throw away, we were able to wash this one once per month and we could keep reusing it indefinitely. I’m sure it doesn’t last forever, but for us we only had to buy that one air filter and we were able to continue to clean it on a monthly basis for what seemed like forever. I do believe we saved a small fortune not having to invest in air filters all the time and we would just take turns washing the air filter. It honestly wasn’t that difficult to do either, but the air filter did get pretty nasty from time to time. We always had decent air quality in the house though and our temperature control settings were reasonable. We all believed that we had to have just the right temperature control settings to be able to focus on school. We all were aiming towards successful careers, and we all achieved our goals!
