Whenever my younger brother is around, my energy bills double

On school breaks my little sibling loves to come and stay with me rather than my parents! I get it, my parents make him work, but my dad regularly will have my siblings do chores and my mom will get on him about cleaning his room.

With me, I just let him run wild.

I cook for him, do his laundry and do whatever he wants at night. I need to start cracking down about how he treats my HVAC device though. I can tell he doesn’t pay energy bills by how he acts, he will set my thermostat to a ridiculously low temperature in the summer. When he gets too cold, my sibling will just open a window, turn off my AC! In the winter he occasionally will open a window and snow will get in my house. It also is pretty usual for him to then leave as well. So I come home to my HVAC running on high and the window wide open. He usually forgets to lock the door on the way out too. When my sibling lives with me, my energy bills double. He will leave all the lights on, the television on and eat all my food too. What am I supposed to do though? Until my sibling has a home of his own and starts paying for things like heating and air, he won’t get it. He doesn’t understand how bad it is paying more currency for heating and A/C. When the time does come, I will make sure to stay at his place and open windows with the heating and A/C running.
