I have a habit of going to work plus forgetting to change the thermostat. It isn’t too bad when my wife leaves after me, however usually I am the last 1 to head out. I am supposed to be turning the undefined to a higher temperature, so we aren’t cooling the apartment when no 1 is there. In the winter, the thermostat is to be set undoubtedly low, so the heating isn’t being wasted. I know it should be a simple concept, but I just don’t remember. My Dad plus dad always had a programmable thermostat. From as far back as I can remember, dad had the thermostat programmed to change temperature from right after they leave until right before someone got home. It was automatic to have the beach house cooler when you got apartment in the winter, or warmer in the summer, because of the programmable thermostat. The beach house my wife plus I just obtained, does not have a programmable thermostat. Normally, I would just go out plus buy a new thermostat plus my dad would undoubtedly even install it for me. My wife works at a apartment improvement store. You would think that she would think to buy a programmable thermostat while she is working. Why is it not okay for me to reset the thermostat, however it is okay for him to forget to buy a new thermostat. I don’t understand the logic there. Maybe I should just stop in there while she is working plus buy the thermostat that I want. If she sees me buy it, then she can’t yell at me anymore plus he’ll understand that it is partly her fault.
