Wrote a script in the home automation that changes it back to 72 degrees after 10 minutes if anyone changes the thermostat.

Also sends me a text alert.

If someone is protecting the temp they like in their house, that’s cool.

But if I ever let the electric bill dictate my comfort level I’ll just kill myself to save the money

Every time I think of the thermostat I think of this scene.

Why? Wouldn’t it be easier to just lock it to 72?

I know exactly what you mean, and now, I’m the master of my domain. My wife was killing it in the kitchen today, and I thought I felt the AC on. She confirmed that she turned it on, even though it read 72, and it was 68 outside. I turned it off with the swiftness and opened some doors and windows. I didn’t hear any complaints.

Leave my thermostat alone. Put a sweater on if you're cold.

I can control it from my phone so it doesn’t bother me.

Gets too hot, i can drop the temp no matter where i am.

68-70 is the sweet spot

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


Mine’s the same way, but 71 during the day. In the summer, 71 will keep it cool enough during the day, and even if it runs all day, it’s usually back to 71 by the time we go to bed. In the winter, we get good sun to naturally heat the house, so the only issue is mornings, and now I know why my grandparents used to run the oven for an hour or so in the mornings.

I’ve come to find out that females think you have to change the temperature at least 6 degrees either way if they think it’s too hot or cold.

I’ve come home to a FREEZING house just to find my wife put it on 65 because she was hot while doing her hair. They apparently don’t understand that the air coming out is the same temperature, it just runs longer

re: How protective are your (or you) dads of the thermostat
My dad was the same way. You didn't lie to him and you didn't mess with his thermostat.

The last couple of years I was in high school I was the last one to leave the house. When it was warm, I turned the thermostat down below 70 after my parents left. Just had to remember to put it back up.

When I started paying my own bills, I'd go without food before I'd let it get hot. Kept the thermostat on 68 most of the summer.

Mine stays on 68F year round. If anyone touches it, I lock them out of the house.

re: How protective are your (or you) dads of the thermostat
this thread brought back memories. my dad was firm with 78, so one time i figured out how to alter the display temp to show it was actually 3-4 degrees warmer than what it really was. Didnt take that m'fer too long to figure something wasnt adding up and before long he was setting it at 82.

he got so much exercise getting up out of his recliner everyday to walk to the other end of the house just to turn the temp up.

Would you rather tell them they couldn't move the temp or let them think they could move the temp only to not let them move it?

My in laws keep it hot as hell at night, sometimes I sneak and cut it down or make my wife do it when we stay there... it’s miserable and the pillows suck and sometimes I forget to bring my own. And we have to sleep in separate twin beds because that’s all they have in their spare room. Rant over

re: How protective are your (or you) dads of the thermostat
I just put the temp at whatever tf I feel like at the time. I probably won’t even notice if someone touches it. If I’m too hot/cold then I just change it from my phone to whatever I want.
