I love my kids dearly.
But had I known that they would be picking at each other over any little thing, I might have stayed with just owning a dog.
Again, I wouldn’t trade my family for the world but I finally had to call the HVAC company in order to stop what was quickly becoming a big battle. It seemed that each day, there was a knock down, drag out fight over the thermostat setting. And I mean every, single day with the kids and even my wife and I. For me, I like to come home from work and kick back in the air conditioning for a bit. We live in a region where there are many months of heat and a lot of my work is done outside. So coming home to enjoy the HVAC cooling for a few minutes after my shower really isn’t asking too much. But my kids start in. Somebody thinks there’s too much cooling so somebody else chimes in that it’s actually hot. That’s where it starts and then it unravels from there. The screaming starts and then I have to jump in and stop this stupid behavior. So I finally just decided to take away any need for an argument over one thermostat setting for the house. I called the HVAC company and had them install zone controlled HVAC. Had I known how easy and affordable this heating and cooling tweak was, I’d have done it far sooner. Now, there are 6 independent HVAC zones in the house. And believe it or not, there is some peace and quiet now that the thermostat setting is no longer a point of contention.
