Please watch your kids; they can’t be trusted with thermostat

I’m really not the sort of person who tries to give anyone advice about their own life.

I know that everyone has different circumstances and difficult factors to deal with.

Therefore, I can’t tell you what the best move is unless I have walked 10 mi in your shoes. That being said, I know a thing or two about raising children. If you want any opinions on being a good parent I can give them to you. Furthermore, I have many years of experience working in the central heating, cooling, and ventilation industry. My dad owned a large HVAC repair shop in town and I have worked in the air quality control field for over 20 years now. In that time, I have noticed some similar characteristics of the households with the worst indoor air quality. Many of them have a handful of children living in the house. Somehow, children seem to correlate with decreased indoor air quality and higher energy bills. If you ask me, it’s because parents these days don’t give their kids realistic rules surrounding the indoor air handling devices. I have seen more children adjusting the thermostat settings without their parents permission than I would like to describe. Somehow, it seems like children these days are empowered to use the air conditioning unit and forced air furnaces as much as they want. There are no negative repercussions for racking up extremely high energy bills or contributing additional wear and tear to the central HVAC system. Thanks to these brats, my job as a heating, cooling, and ventilation specialist is very lucrative and secure.
