Recently, I was sitting near the control units in our church, but normally, I cannot see them all from where I sit.
I was surprised to see a note pinned up right near the control unit.
It said “Summer control component setting: 66; Winter control component setting: 66.” It reminded myself when I was teaching in a private school. One of the teachers showed up to school with no blazer even though it was quite chilly outside. She then declared that she never knew when it was cold or warm because her lake house thermostat was constantly set on the same temperature. In her world, it was constantly 70 degrees. At the time, I thought that was crazy, but that seems to be ever more popular in this age. It is even happening at the church. Only it is 66 instead of 70 on the control unit. I am wondering to myself if it is great to set the Heating in addition to the Air Conditioning at the same temperature all year long. I think it does make sense, but I do not set my air conditioning or my furnace the same. I think it is much more lavish to run the Heating or the Air Conditioning if you set the furnace to make it too warm or the air conditioning to make it too cold. I set my warm season temperature to 70 as well as my Winter control component to 68. That is a difference of 4 degrees. 70 in the Winter would be just too much heat that would dry out everything in the house, including my skin… Plus, it would be much more pricey to heat the house those 4 extra degrees. What do you think?
