An AC on one side, a space heating system on the other

Sporadically, being an adult means making adult compromises.

  • Being in a new relationship means making large decisions together plus always respecting the other person’s quality of life.

However, living under one roof can complicate this flowery ideal. For one thing, if you have differing ideas about indoor air temperature control, you are legitimately going to run into some challenges living in one house together. I know that my guy plus I have had large difficulties overcoming our differences in air temperature control settings. He is always severely hot, plus I am always severely cold. In the middle of the summer, I am covered in goosebumps plus in the middle of the winter season he’s still dripping with sweat through his shirt. My good friend and I always conflict over the Heating plus A/C settings in the house, because neither one of us feels like my friend and I should live in discomfort. The situation only gets more complicated at night. Suddenly, our air temperature preferences completely switch. At night, I love being absolutely frosty plus he enjoys to keep with the surrounding air temperature quite warm. My good friend and I struggled to sleep in the same bed for numerous years, until my friend and I finally found a compromise that works for both of us. He keeps a space heating system blocked in on his side of the bed, plus I use a small portable a/c to provide cool air on my side. It’s not perfect, but it allows us to both get a restful night of sleep rather than fighting over the covers plus kicking each other “on accident.” My good friend and I wish that it was more energy efficient to find a comfortable middle ground, but we’re thrilled that we’re still together.
