Our heating and cooling bills have been so high recently that I have had to take some dire measures. I have never entirely been one of those people who is super paranoid about other people touching the control component in my home or anything like that, because my dad used to be that way whenever I was growing up. I used to think that it was ridiculous how he used to yell at me and my siblings about touching the control unit. It got to the point where we were all afraid to even go near the control component at our home when we were growing up. I didn’t want to do that to my own kids once I grew up and became an adult. I wanted them to feel like they were comfortable in their own home. Well, now that I am having to deal with the heating and cooling bills at my own home that I have to pay for myself, I can now understand why it was that my dad used to get so aggravated at us when we were growing up. It’s always entirely overheated around here during the summertime and the control component has now become a bit of a battle ground around our house. I am so sick and tired of fighting with my kids about the temperature settings on the control unit! The a/c bills have been through the roof over the past many months and I have had it, but since the kids won’t stop changing the temperature settings when I tell them to, I have decided to lock the control component and put a digital code on it instead!
