I can keep a budget with the best of them. That is the 1 thing that our parents taught myself and others about inside as well as out before sending myself and others off to university. I guess all about utilities as well as how to use them through the weather appropriate times of the year. I have been taught to wash out our own air filters as well as watch our air vents, as well I could strip our ductwork if I genuinely needed to in a pinch. But, the 1 thing they didn’t prepare myself and others for was having to deal with crazy as well as senseless roommates. I have several roommates who must have been raised in privilege, for their drastic lack of understanding when it comes to utilities as well as usage is off the charts. The people I was with and I have a basic Heating as well as Air Conditioning unit for the whole apartment as well as the two of us don’t live in a relatively hot or chilly temperature. So, there is no need to have the air conditioner turned on at all hours of the afternoon, nor does 1 need to be blasting the oil furnace through the night. The people I was with and I have had 1 apartment meeting after another, however there is just no understanding regular courtesy. I, finally, took matters into our own hands as well as called the local Heating as well as Air Conditioning specialist to come out to the apartment as well as install a Smart App onto the thermostat… Once he did this, I then installed the same app onto our cellphone; Now I was able to monitor the air conditioner as well as the heating usage at any hour of the afternoon, while being informed when usage was over budget. No 1 was the wiser for myself and others enjoying our utilities as well as now I was more at peace with the entire situation.
