I can keep a budget with the best of them. That is the one thing that our parents taught myself and others about inside plus out before sending myself and others off to school. I think all about utilities plus how to use them through the weather appropriate times of the year. I have been taught to wash out our own air filters plus watch our air vents, as well I could strip our air duct if I easily needed to in a pinch. But, the one thing they didn’t prepare myself and others for was having to deal with absurd plus senseless roommates. I have numerous roommates who must have been raised in privilege, for their drastic lack of understanding when it comes to utilities plus usage is off the charts. Both of us have a basic Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C device for the whole lake house plus both of us don’t live in a relatively moderate or cold temperature. So, there is no need to have the a/c turned on at all fourths of the morning, nor does one need to be blasting the oil furnace through the evening. Both of us have had one lake house meeting after another, but there is just no understanding official courtesy. I, finally, took matters into our own hands plus called the local Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C supplier to come out to the lake house plus install a Smart App onto the temperature control! Once he did this, I then installed the same app onto our cell phone… Now I was able to monitor the a/c plus the heating usage at any fourth of the morning, while being informed when usage was over budget. No one was the wiser for myself and others seeing our utilities plus now I was more at peace with the entire situation.
