My family is… well, eccentric. They are loud, opinionated, and generally a bit rude! I personally can’t stand being around them too often, as their negativity will start to affect me and make me an equally sour person. However, there is one thing that I don’t think anyone can bring me down from, and that’s an excellent air conditioning system! Call me a nerd if you want, but reliable A/C is as valuable as gold in this region. With the weather being in the high nineties for days on end in the summer months, excellent indoor air conditions have no equal in preference! That’s why I decided to gift my family members with a digital thermostat, each intending to go in their room and allow them control of the room’s temperature. It may sound ridiculous or childish to you, but how is this extension of the HVAC system any more enabling of their poor attitudes than an hour spent with their grandfather? Anyway, they all loved the gift! And of course, they were asking me everyday to get the zone control thermostat installed. I finally got to a point where I agreed to go over and help them with their smart thermostat, but I knew they were using this as an opportunity to “call me out” for something I hadn’t done. Whatever the reason, I know that they’re going to enjoy having control over the climate, if only in their room. I know I’m enjoying mine, as I can set my room to be a cool sixty-six degrees all year long and no one will stop me!
