Always know when husband gets home, HVAC settings change

I am an introvert through and through, and that has never been more obvious than during this global pandemic.

  • All around me, people have been freaking out about having to stay indoors and spend time with themselves.

Meanwhile, I’ve been having the time of my life. Give me a day with no social obligations and a room full of craft supplies, and let me go wild. That’s part of the reason why I am a professional artist who works out of the house. I don’t mind being alone all day. Even when my husband gets home, I’m more than content to stay on my own. Besides, I can always tell when he has arrived based on the status of the heating, cooling, and ventilation system. You see, my husband and I have very different air temperature control preferences. Well I’m at home all day, I’m happy to keep the air conditioning at a super conservative setting. I don’t need a ton of cold air blasting through my space from every air vent. When I’m occupied with my art, I’m more than happy to sit calmly and draw in semi warm and humid air. It doesn’t bother me to be surrounded by the muggy air that naturally comes with our climate. But, I hate when the air conditioning system is on too high, because my fingers start to go numb in the cold air. Of course, the air conditioning system is essentially my husband’s doorbell when he gets home. It doesn’t take more than 10 seconds for him to walk in the door and adjust the thermostat for extra cooling power. As soon as I feel ice cold air flowing from my vents, I know that my husband has arrived. I might not go downstairs to greet him because I’m too occupied with my art, but I will at least stand up and close my air vents.
