Our cooling bills have been extra high this year.
It has gotten so bad that I have had to take serious measures to try as well as save money on our cooling bills! I have consistently been pretty lenient when it comes to the temperature settings at our house.
I mean, it never used to bother me if the teenagers would turn the temperature control temperature up as well as down a couple of degrees or so. However, this year when the summer time weather started heating up in earnest, the cooling bills got to be completely out of control around here. I found out that the teenagers had been going over to the temperature control device whenever they felt like it as well as they would turn the a/c down as far as they thought they should be. Well, unfortunately for our family, they thought that the a/c settings should be around 65 degrees at all times! This ended up leaving me with cooling bills that were sky high! That’s when I decided to draw the line on letting anyone other than me adjust the a/c in our house. I thought about putting 1 of those plastic covers with a lock on it on top of our temperature control, however I didn’t entirely want to have that ugly box there on the wall in my hallway with the temperature control. I did a little bit of research into our smart temperature control unit, as well as I found out that there’s a way that I can set a locking code into the temperature control. I decided to just try doing that. With a digital code that locks them out, I think that I’m going to have lower cooling bills next week!
