It wasn’t easy to stop the kids from letting the A/C out of our residence

I was not actually prepared to be a parent when my first child was born.

I wanted youngsters my entire life as well as was absolutely thrilled to be a father, but it was blatantly clear that I had so much to learn in such a small phase of time.

There were more demands at work, all the while my wifey was still struggling to recover from pregnancy and truly needed my assistance. I started to wonder if I was a failure as well as if I would ever improve as well as figure out how to navigate all of these terribly stressful life scenarios. Thankfully for me, time healed these wounds as well as I slowly managed to adjust to being a father. Now my youngsters are much older. I obviously love them to death, but they don’t regularly follow rules around the residence, especially if they’re attempting to play games. One of the things I struggled with from the very beginning was either of them opening windows around the residence on a regular basis. This seriously would not be such a tremendous deal if it wasn’t happening in the worst summertime heat waves where the cooling machine is barely keeping up with demand. An open window for just 15 minutes is easily enough to let out a great deal of conditioned air. But it’s not just the windows, they also touch the HVAC thermostat regardless of being not allowed to go anywhere near it. After constantly ignoring my requests, I made the move to put a plastic lock box over the thermostat. I put child safety locks on all of the windows too. At times, despite your best efforts as well as intentions, your children will totally refuse to follow directions.

I finally managed to stop the children from letting the A/C out of the house

I totally was not prepared to be a parent when our first child was born.

I wanted to have youngsters for my whole life plus was grateful to be a father, however it was apparent that I had a great deal to learn in a very short amount of time. There were adjusting demands at work, all the while my wifey was still struggling to recover from pregnancy plus needed my help on a regular basis. I started to wonder if I was a complete failure plus if I would ever improve plus figure out how to handle these stressful life scenarios. Gratefully for me, time healed these wounds plus I eventually adjusted to being a father. Now our children are a lot older. I easily love them to death, however they don’t constantly follow rules around the property, especially if they’re trying to play games. One of the things I struggled a great deal with from the very beginning was either of them randomly opening windows around the property. This wouldn’t be such a sizable deal if it wasn’t happening in the worst summer time heat waves where the a/c equipment is barely keeping up with demand. An open window for merely 10 minutes is enough to let out a good amount of conditioned air. But it’s not just the windows, they also would regularly touch the Heating and Air Conditioning thermostat despite being forbidden to go near it. After constantly ignoring our requests, I made the decision to put a plastic lock box over the thermostat. I put child safety locks on all of the windows as well. Occasionally despite your best efforts plus intentions, your children will refuse to follow instruction.

 

Quality air conditioner

I had to take measures to prevent the kids from opening the windows with the A/C appliance working

I sincerely was not prepared to be a parent when my first child was born.

I definitely wanted youngsters my entire life as well as was excited to be a father, however it was obvious that I had a great deal to learn in such a short period of time. There were increasing demands at my workplace, all the while my partner was still struggling to recover from pregnancy and definitely needed my help around the clock. I started to wonder if I happened to be a failure as well as if I would ever improve as well as figure out how to navigate these stressful life scenarios. Fortunately for me, time eventually healed these wounds as well as I slowly was able to adjust to being a great father. Now my youngsters are much older. I certainly love them to death, however they don’t regularly follow rules around the dwelling, especially if they’re trying to play games. One of the things I struggled with from the get go was either of them opening windows around the dwelling. This honestly wouldn’t be such a massive deal if it wasn’t happening in the midst of Summer heatwaves where the air conditioner appliance is barely keeping up with demand. An open window for less than an hour is enough to let out a massive amount of conditioned air. But it’s not just the windows, they also would mess with the Heating as well as A/C temperature control despite being told not to go anywhere near it. After always ignoring my requests, I decided to place a plastic lock box over the temperature control. I also put child safety locks on all of the windows as well. On occasion, despite your best efforts as well as intentions, your children will easily refuse to follow directions.

It has not been easy to get the kids to stop opening windows with the A/C on

I was honestly not prepared to be a parent when our first child came into the world. I wanted kids my entire life plus was thrilled to be a father, however it was blatant that I had so much to learn in such a small amount of time. There were increasing demands at my place of work, all the while my wifey is still struggling to recover from pregnancy plus needs my help around the clock. I started to wonder if I was a failure plus if I would ever improve plus figure out how to navigate all of these crazy life scenarios. Happily for me, time healed these massive wounds plus I slowly adjusted to being a good father. Now our kids are becoming much older. I really love them to death, however they don’t regularly follow rules around the household, especially if they’re trying to play games. One of the things I struggled with from the beginning was either of them randomly would open windows around the household. This wouldn’t be such a massive deal if it wasn’t happening in the worst Summer heatwaves where the cooling device was barely keeping up with demand. An open window for merely 20 minutes is enough to let out a huge amount of conditioned air. But it’s not just the windows, they also touch the HVAC temperature control machine despite being forbidden to go anywhere near it. After regularly ignoring my requests, I put a plastic lock box over the temperature control unit. I put child safety locks on all of the windows on top of that. Occasionally despite your best efforts plus intentions, your children will simply refuse to follow the guidelines you have in place.

It took me years to get my kids to stop opening windows with the AC running

I was not prepared to be a parent when my first child was born.

I wanted kids my entire life and was excited to be a father, but it was obvious that I had so much to learn in such a small period of time.

There were increasing demands at work, all the while my wife is still struggling to recover from pregnancy and needs my help around the clock. I started to wonder if I was a failure and if I would ever improve and figure out how to navigate all of these stressful life scenarios. Thankfully for me, time healed these wounds and I slowly adjusted to being a father. Now my kids are eight and five years old. I love them to death, but they don’t always follow rules around the house, especially if they’re trying to play games. One of the things I struggled with from the start was either of them randomly opening windows around the house. This would be such a big deal if it wasn’t happening in the worst summer heatwaves where the air conditioner is barely keeping up with demand. An open window for just 20 minutes is enough to let out a considerable amount of conditioned air. But it’s not just the windows, they also touch the HVAC thermostat despite being forbidden to go anywhere near it. After consistently ignoring my requests, I put a plastic lock box over the thermostat. I put child safety locks on all of the windows as well. Sometimes despite your best efforts and intentions, your children will simply refuse to follow directions.

We were lucky to have full control of the temperature control as freshmen

College was a pretty wild experience—between the terribly long hours spent studying and the constant parties.

It’s no wonder why I experienced severe sleep deprivation as much as I did.

But when you’re a youngster and have tons of energy, it’s so much easier to subsist on only so many hours of sleep every night. I had a rather irregular eating schedule, and when I did get food, it involved subsisting on the greasy and fatty food that was always being served by the campus cafeteria. I was extremely fortunate that I was with a roommate that had many of the same music and film interests that I had. The two of us totally bonded over blasting music over our stereo, or by playing excellent games on his gaming console. The two of us were severely lucky as we were put in the current housing, opposed to other students who had to live in the ancient dorms. Our dorm had just been built, still had fresh paint, and displayed something that was not in any other dorms. What we had was a nice working temperature control unit that we had full control over. There were actual limits to how nippy or boiling we could make the room, but we often had it set to 68 degrees even with the most blazing hot outdoor temperatures you could think of. I really appreciated having control over our indoor climate control, especially since the dorms we would transfer into the next year had temperature control units that were fully locked and kept at 76 degrees no matter what the weather was like. It’s quite easy to take small things like controllable Heating and Air Conditioning temperature control units for granted. It’s absolutely silly to think that they were actually giving free reign to the freshmen when it came to running these advanced HVAC machines.
Smart HVAC

It was the best being able to change up the temperature control settings in college

College was a real whirlwind experience—between the lengthy hours spent reading as well as the seemingly never ending partying.

It’s no wonder why I had massive sleep deprivation.

But when you’re young as well as full of energy, it’s easier to subsist on just a couple hours of sleep every night. I had an awful eating schedule, as well as when I did get food, it involved surviving on the greasy as well as fatty food being served by the campus cafeteria. I was honestly lucky that I was placed with a roommate that had similar music as well as film interests as I did. We bonded over cranking up the music over my stereo, or by playing some good games on his gaming console. We actually got extremely lucky as the two of us were placed in the more modern housing, opposed to other students who had no choice but to live in 40-year-old dorms. Our dorm had just been built, still smelled of fresh paint, as well as featured something that was not found in any other dorms on our campus. What we had was a working temperature control that we had complete control over. There were actual limits to how frosty or tepid the two of us could make the room, however we usually had the temperature control set to 74 degrees even with the hottest outdoor hot as well as cold temperatures you could imagine. I entirely loved having control over our indoor environment, especially since the dorms the two of us would transfer into the following year had temperature controls that were easily locked as well as kept at 78 degrees. It’s simple to take such little things like controllable HVAC temperature controls for granted. It’s deranged to actually believe that they were providing free reign to some college freshmen when it came to working these brand new air conditioners.

Central heating

It was nice being able to adjust the temperature control how we wanted in college

There were limits to how freezing or overheated the two of us could make the room, but the two of us often had it set to 69 degrees even with incredibly hot and cold temperatures outside

College was a pretty crazy experience—between the long hours spent learning and the seemingly never ending get-togethers. It’s truly no wonder why I experienced massive sleep deprivation. But when you’re 19 and full of energy, it’s easier to subsist on only a few hours of sleep every night. I had a pretty abnormal eating schedule, and when I did get food, it involved subsisting on the greasy food being served by the campus cafeteria. I was tremendously lucky that I was placed with a roommate that had the same music and film interests as I did. We totally bonded over cranking up music over my stereo, or by playing Halo or GTA on his gaming machine. The two of us were harshly lucky as the two of us were actually placed in the newer housing, opposed to other students who had to stay in 40-year-old dorms. Our dorm had just been built, still smelled like paint, and had something that was not in any other dorms on our campus. What the two of us had was an entirely working temperature control component that the two of us had complete control over. There were limits to how freezing or overheated the two of us could make the room, but the two of us often had it set to 69 degrees even with incredibly hot and cold temperatures outside. I really appreciated having control over our indoor environment the way we did, especially since the dorms the two of us would transport into the following year had temperature control units that were totally locked and kept at 76 degrees regardless of the weather. It’s relatively easy to take little things like controllable Heating, Ventilation and A/C control units for granted. It’s absolutely silly to realize that they were giving free reign to a bunch of university freshmen when it came to running these newer A/C appliances.

It was nice being a freshman and adjusting the thermostat as we saw fit

College was a whirlwind experience—between the long hours spent studying plus the seemingly never ending partying.

It’s no wonder why I experienced sleep deprivation as much as I did.

But when you’re 19 plus entirely filled with energy, it’s easier to subsist on as much as five hours of sleep every single evening. I had a very strange eating schedule, plus when I did get food, it involved subsisting on the greasy plus fatty food being served by the campus cafeteria. I was fortunate that I was placed with a roommate that had several of the same music plus film interests as I did. We easily bonded over blasting music over our sound dock, or by playing Halo or GTA on her gaming console. The two of us got totally lucky as we were placed in the new housing, opposed to other students who had to reside in 40-year-old dorms. Our dorm had just been built, still smelled like fresh paint, plus advertised something that was not in any other dorms on our campus. What we had was a working thermostat that we had complete control over. There were limits to how chilly or overheated we could make the room, however we often had it set to 72 degrees even with the most blazing hot outdoor temperatures imaginable. I absolutely adored having control over our indoor environment, especially since the dorms we would transport into the following year had thermostats that were entirely locked plus kept at 68 degrees regardless of the weather conditions. It’s straight-forward to take small things such as controllable Heating and A/C thermostats for granted. It’s insane to know that they were giving free reign to a bunch of school freshmen when it came to working these brand new a/c devices.

Some college dorms have adjustable thermostats while others do not

College was a whirlwind experience—between the long hours spent studying and the seemingly never ending partying.

It’s no wonder why I experienced sleep deprivation as severely as I did.

But when you’re 19 and full of energy, it’s easier to subsist on four or five hours of sleep every night. I had an irregular eating schedule, and when I did get food, it involved subsisting on the greasy and fatty food being served by the campus cafeteria. I was lucky that I was placed with a roommate that had many of the same music and film interests as I did.

There were limits to how cold or hot we could make the room, but we often had it set to 70 degrees even with the hottest outdoor temperatures imaginable. I loved having control over our indoor environment, especially since the dorms we would move into the following year had thermostats that were locked and kept at 76 degrees regardless of the weather. It’s easy to take small things like controllable HVAC thermostats for granted. It’s crazy to think that they were giving free reign to a bunch of college freshmen when it came to running these brand new air conditioning systems.
