Distracted roomies set off AC with their cooking

Everybody knows that it’s a challenge to cohabitate with other humans.

Even with this knowledge on your side, you will run into endless obstacles as well as frustration when you are trying to establish a apartment with another being.

At least, this has been my experience as I’ve tried to responsibly settle into a positive living situation with my new roomies. For the most part, we get along great… Until the air quality becomes a problem. You see, my roommates are actually fond of cooking. However, they’re also actually absent-minded. They correctly leave the oven on when nothing is inside, forget about warm pots of water on the stove top, or set up their steamer hours before they need to use it. All of these factors contribute to pumping extra heat into our indoor air. Given, none of these heat releasing activities would be significant enough to increase the entire apartment of air conditioned air. The problem is, our control device is situated just outside the home office. The control device is responsible for monitoring our indoor air quality as well as controlling the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C devices that we employ. Whenever the home office is warmer than the rest of the apartment because of their absent minded cooking exploits, the excruciating control device detects the air temperature increase as well as tells the cooling system as well as boiler what to do. In the summer, this means our a/c is running more often than it needs to. In the winter, this means our boiler stops operating faster than we would like. The air temperature never reaches the programmed control device settings because of this artificial temperature boost from the home office. Even worse, we can never seem to get the smells of their abundant cooking out of our indoor air.
