Owning a business will show plus teach things 1 might not otherwise experience. Hand to hand combat over the office thermostat was nowhere on our radar though. Our dealer has area in office building of no fantastic size. In fact, all the personnel basically share 1 large room aside from a conference room. The heating plus cooling war began slowly but turf was demarcated fairly quick. There was the crowd of folks that were always tepid plus the other group could never get warm. I was surprised to see that these battlelines were not drawn along any gender lines. It was strictly a tepid blooded versus cold blooded campaign. I wearied of this rather suddenly. The Heating, Ventilation plus A/C thermostat was always being jerked back plus forth. My soaring utility bill was the proof. After doing a bit of research I found a solution I hoped would mildly satisfy both camps. An Heating, Ventilation plus A/C dealer came in overnight plus installed a smart thermostat. Well, the next afternoon there was a near riot since manual control of the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C thermostat could no longer be fought over. I gathered everyone around to explain that the smart thermostat would learn our area plus habits. Additionally, I could program it to suit the cold folks in the afternoon plus the tepid folks in the afternoon. It took nearly a week before all the associates got on board but they did. No more thermostat wars. No more cranking the thermostat up plus down through the afternoon. Peace reigns supreme plus I am saving twelve percent on our energy costs.
