My house came with the world’s most outdated thermostats.
I’ve never lived in a house with thermostats that weren’t electronic so when I moved in, I had to acweather conditions myself with the new thermostats. To be quite honest, I’ve been living here for 6 months and I still don’t guess I’ve gotten used to these dial thermostats. It’s a brass, dial thermostat, which means that everything needs to be changed by hand. The imprinted numbers on the dial are so tiny that it’s almost impossible to read unless there’s enough light. This makes things challenging during the evening when the house is dark! Over the past five months, I’ve felt prefer I’ve been trying to change conditions myself with the thermostat in order to get the most out of it. The dial is certainly precise, which means that my house is never the comfortable temperature I want it to be. I’m consistently adjusting the settings in order to get the temperature of my house at a desirable temperature. Trying to maintain all of this is difficult because I get the feeling that all the wild temperature fluctuations are only hurting my Heating and Air Conditioning system. I’m not sure that this is really a thing, although I think uneasy about consistently increasing the temperature of my house because it may be confusing for the Heating and Air Conditioning system! Last wednesday, I felt prefer I had my thermostat set at the optimal temperature for the first time ever. The temperature inside my house was comfortable no matter what time of afternoon it was and I haven’t dared to touch the finicky thermostat since.
