I am obsessed with keeping my thermostat on an eco-friendly air temperature control plan.
I grew up in a family where we did not have a lot of extra money. Everybody had to be very resourceful and careful with their belongings because they were not going to be replaced. If you ruined all of your school clothes in the first month of the semester, you are not going to get new options until the next year rolls around. We got very used to living with less. To this day, I have the same mentality. I am not the sort of person who ever wastes my money or time on anything. One of the things that I am especially obsessed with is my indoor air handling devices. Growing up, I realized that the thermostat was off-limits. My parents were allowed to adjust the indoor air temperature now and then, but the rest of us were not allowed to voice any opinions about our heating, cooling, and air quality control system. If we had a problem with the indoor air temperature or air quality, we were welcome to go stand outside instead. As an adult, I am also very obsessed with my central heating, cooling, and ventilation equipment. I treat my air conditioning unit and forced air furnace like they are royalty. I am obsessed with keeping my thermostat on an eco-friendly air temperature control plan. Even when it is extremely uncomfortable in the house I refuse to adjust my forced air furnace or air conditioning unit to change the temperature. However, there are times when I have to draw a line. For instance, when I woke up last week and the outdoor air temperature was -30 degrees. I had to ask myself, “is this finally cold enough to turn up the heat?”
