I am a single mom raising several children under the age of six! To supply for our family, I work really long hours and life is hectic.
I recently asked our mother to move in with me, and she was feeling lonely and struggling to manage the responsibilities of a large cabin on her own! For the most part, this new arrangement has worked out charmingly for the both of us. I have free babysitting and total peace of mind. I suppose our children are well taken care of and enjoyed; My mother also helps a lot with cooking, cleaning and running errands. She really enjoys spending time with the kids! One of our only difficulties was that our mother kept messing with the temperature control. The two of us have a zoned controlled heating and cooling system with individual temperature controls in each room, but all of these temperature controls link to the central hub located in the residing room. I have access to adjust the temperature anywhere in the cabin through an app on our iphone. The beauty of a smart temperature control is that it automatically caters to room occupancy and our correct schedule. The system knows when there’s someone in the home office or when the residing room is empty. It actively works to conserve energy and ensure ideal comfort at all times. I rarely make any kind of adjustment. However, I was swiftly getting e-mail alerts of extreme temperature swings because our mother was messing with the temperature control. I tried to explain that the temperature control would react and adjust whenever she entered or left a room, however she’d instantly start tapping buttons. She managed to switch the whole system from cooling to heating in the middle of July. She then opened all of the windows because the cabin was too hot.
