I never want to be the type of guy who degrades his hosts if they’re gracious enough to welcome me into their space! There’s nothing more uncomfortable than being with a person who makes insulting comments about the living conditions of a family member or friend’s home when they are graciously giving you a roof over your head.
I’ve had this happen several times with entitled buddies who thought that they could make recommendations about the air temperature plus air quality control variations when they weren’t even in their own homes! You have no idea how uncomfortable it becomes when they begin trying to adjust my thermostat or request current HVAC companies at a friend and family members’ house. This is why I never say anything even if I’m incredibly uncomfortable in someone else’s home temperature! Recently, this was the problem when a buddy of mine kindly provided a place for me to stay for the evening. However, he didn’t mention that his AC unit was failing, and apparently his central heating plus cooling system was 11-13 years old, so the a/c device was certainly affected by wear plus tear. It wasn’t giving off high-quality indoor air no matter how he adjusted his thermostat. When I got to his house, it was muggy and hot, however I didn’t want to be mean by saying anything about the lack of air. Instead, I waited until he fell asleep so I could sneak out of his house plus purchase a portable AC device in order to get some sleep.
