Our youngsters arrive home from university and end up being alone at the home for more than one and a half hours before either myself and others or our spouse gets home.
The vast majority of the time, the two of us find the home to be in order with nothing broken and all multiple of our children behaving relatively well. Although, I have to admit that there has possibly a lot going on that the two of us simply are not privy to. One thing our spouse and I have suspected is that the youngsters are decreasing the temperature on the control unit the moment they get home from university, and then decreasing it back as soon as they see us pull up into the driveway. If it’s summertime, anytime they are home alone, it seems that they crank up the a/c farther than the two of us want it to go. Every one of us do try to save on our energy bill costs, after all. In the winter, I have even more reason to suspect that they crank up the heat when it’s really chilly outside, because I regularly notice that it’s a little warmer when I walk through the door, and then things get a little cooler. I’ve never actually seen a different temperature on the control unit when I go over to inspect it, but I assume I know what’s going on. Our daily bills are even a little more overpriced than I would have anticipated. Those hours of being away from home, while the two of us were in which our youngsters may or may not be messing with the control unit add up, after all!
