You are probably wondering how a highly educated boomer such as myself needs such remedial lessons. Well, it is not that I am slow. It is because Hubby has set up a system of heating/cooling controls that make no sense to the normal homo sapien. By the way, did you know that was Latin for "wise man or knowing man"? Just an interesting tidbit I picked up from a google wander. Wonder what Latin for "wise or knowing woman would be? I digress....
We have five different thermostats in our house. Two are even in the same room. All of them work. All of them do something. It is always confusing to me, however, what something each of them do. I grew up in a house with one thermostat. When I was young we didn't have air conditioning so that thermostat was all about turning on the furnace. It seems to me that you should need only one thermostat. Turn it to the temperature you want and magic takes care of the rest. Apparently not.
Here is what I have learned.
|One thermostat should be voted off the wall.|
|How to overcome a hold?|
|Apparently we like it warmer upstairs.|
The third level also has a thermostat because....well, I don't know why. It just does. I generally leave it alone, because at my age I am seldom cold at night.
|The critical AC OFF button.|
A house with "hot flashes". Seems appropriate.
