When I was growing up, the HVAC thermostat was my dad’s realm and my dad’s realm alone. He was not the sort of guy that took kindly to anyone moving the thermostat setting. And somehow, I never really knew how, he could tell if the thermostat had been changed even when it was put back before he got home. But that’s sort of how that goes with a dad’s secret powers. For me, being a dad comes with a lot less of those secret powers. It also seems to come with a lot more complaining that I remember ever doing with my parents. But then again, along with not messing with the thermostat, my dad didn’t take kindly to complaints. I’m less harsh when it comes to my kid’s behavior. And when they get out of line, I’m the first one to correct them. Otherwise, I’m a listener and a problem solver when it comes to my children. I like for them to fell completely free to come to me with anything. And in turn, I will help them find suitable solutions for themselves wherever and whenever I can. To that end, all the kids and my wife asked if we could look into getting zone controlled HVAC for our house. This was due to the fact that we all have such different heating and cooling needs. Agreeing to a thermostat setting for the house has become increasingly difficult. But the HVAC company was able to take care of that. We now have zone controlled HVAC and there are 5 separate thermostats throughout the house. This will allow anyone to find a space they can then customize the thermostat setting to their wishes.
