How protective are your (or you) dads of the thermostat
The thermostat was off limits growing up. I never even used a thermostat until college. If someone fricked with our thermostat my dad knew literally within seconds. He could just sense that the air was clicking on out of balance with what he set. To be fair our house felt like it was the perfect temperature every day basically my whole life so apparently he’s cracked the secret of the perfect year round temperature no matter how cold or hot it is

Well fast forward a decade or so and he is still like this. And now as someone with my own place I find myself knowing immediately if someone has fricked with my own thermostat and also being pretty protective of it.

That commercial that shows the husband/dad pop out of nowhere and asking “what are you touching the thermostat for?” When his wife is adjusting it cracks me up because I find it so accurate.

Am I a weirdo or are most dads like this?

I did not have central air/heat until I was an adult. That being said we were not allowed to touch the window units. But none of the kids had one in their room so it didn’t matter lol

I have a smart thermostat so I can use the app and I don't have to get up when my wife tries to sneak by me that she has raised it to like 82 or something. I like my house feeling like a meat storage and she likes it feeling like August in Louisiana.

Stepdaughter thought she could put the Ecobee thermostat to whatever temp she wanted. Then I discovered the password protection.

re: How protective are your (or you) dads of the thermostat
My wife and I both like it cold. Not cool.... cold. We keep it at 63 during the day and 660-61 at night. Our families know that if they are coming over, to pack a sweater. My dad was the same way. Anytime my grandparents would come over when I was growing up and they'd say something about how cold it was he'd say "This is my house where I pay the bills and I'll be DAMNED if I'm gonna be uncomfortable in MY house. We've got blankets."


Ditto Pops, ditto. Nobody fricks with my thermostat.

I was hot in the summer and cold in the winter growing up. My dad was always checking it and turning off the lights. I remember mom watching him leave for work and then rushing over to get the temp right.

I’ve given up on the thermostat war. It’s a constant battle wit the light switches though.

It’s on a schedule so no one touches it.



Or no one should touch it.

I care that it’s comfortable in the house, but I don’t have a thing about a certain degree it has to be set to or anything.

And definitely don’t know if someone has changed it until it becomes uncomfortable. Don’t have a 6th sense before I can feel it.

I go put mine on 68 every night because I like to sleep cold, my son (13) has figured out that after I go to bed he can bump it up..

We battle daily over this

You want to piss me off? Touch my thermostat.

I suffered for years as my dad kept the thermostat set at 76-78


I vowed that when I had my own house it would never be above 73.

If someone wants to control the thermostat, they can pay the bills


ETA:68-70 is the sweet spot

In the winter if it’s cold and the heat is on its 63-65
