We want my dad to feel like he’s at home and like he’s still independent, but we also want to make sure that we aren’t freezing to death from the air conditioning in the summer
In just under a month, my dad is going to be moving in with me and my husband. We have been trying to get him to move in with us for months, but he’s a stubborn old goat and he likes doing things his own way. He’s always been that way, and I probably get some of my stubbornness from him. Anyway, the reason that he has been holding on on moving in at our house even though he knows he probably should is because of his great love for his air conditioning system. My dad has always been the king of his castle and he likes being in charge of the thermostat at his house. He tends to keep the air conditioning set at a really low temperature, like around 65 degrees or so. He keeps it set this low all summer long, and the past few years when I go to visit him, I have to wear my winter coat. I know that he’s thinking that we won’t let him keep the A/C turned down that low at our house, and he’s right! But the thing is, we have already been thinking about how we could circumvent that problem. We want my dad to feel like he’s at home and like he’s still independent, but we also want to make sure that we aren’t freezing to death from the air conditioning in the summer. We talked to our HVAC technician about it and he said that the perfect solution would be for us to install zone control heating and cooling. We thought that sounded like the perfect solution too, and so by the time my dad moves in next month, he will be able to control his own air conditioning in our house, too!
