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

Sporadically, being an adult means making adult compromises.

Being in a up-to-date relationship means making big decisions together and constantly respecting the other person’s quality of life.

However, residing under one roof can complicate this flowery ideal. For one thing, if you have differing ideas about indoor air temperature control, you are unquestionably going to run into some challenges residing in one dwelling together. I know that my boyfriend and I have had big difficulties overcoming our differences in air temperature control settings. He is consistently severely hot, and I am consistently severely cold. In the middle of the summer, I am covered in goosebumps and in the middle of the winter he’s still perspiring through his shirt. My friend and I consistently fight over the Heating and A/C settings in the house, because neither one of us feels like my good 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 care about being unquestionably frosty and he enjoys to keep with the surrounding air temperature quite warm. My friend and I struggled to sleep in the same bed for several years, until my good friend and I finally found a compromise that works for both of us. He keeps a space heating system congested in on his side of the bed, and I use a small portable air conditioning to deliver 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 and kicking each other “on accident.” My friend and I wish that it was more energy efficient to find a comfortable middle ground, but we’re glad that we’re still together.
