I’ve been finding it increasingly irritating lately that I can never get fully comfortable inside my own home.
I room with two other men, for convenience, as well as my buddy and I get along fairly well, but my buddy and I have our disputes.
Maybe someone doesn’t remove their items from the washing equipment when the cycles ends, or they don’t load the dishwasher, but these small things I can deal with. The biggest problem is that none of us can ever agree on a temperature control setting for our apartment’s temperature control. My ideal temperature control setting would be a constant 70, whether it’s for heating or air conditioning depending on the time of year, for the perfect temperature. However, one of my roommates seems incredibly sensitive to even the lowest of air conditioning settings, freezing with just the slightest of breezes from the vents. The other would like for us to live in an oven with constant heat, even in summer. It’s ridiculous! It’s reached the point where my buddy and I all have our own personal devices to control the part instantly around us. Electric heaters as well as portable fans can be helpful, but the heaters cause me to have nosebleeds from the dry air as well as the fans only work to superficially circulate the air instead of cooling it. I wish there was a solution or compromise to our temperature control problems but, unfortunately, even if my buddy and I could afford to buy a new zone control Heating as well as A/C system my buddy and I don’t own the property to do so, and on the bright side, I’ll be moving out in a month for a job relocation so I’ll only have to deal with it a little longer. I’ll miss them both but I easily won’t miss the bickering over the temperature control.
