I couldn’t believe it as I watched my friends open the window in the middle of winter.
- They were letting a ton of cold air into their home, and I knew that it wouldn’t be long before they took all of the heat out of their small apartment.
Now, I know that there are people who like the air conditioner a lot, and they would really prefer to open a window in the winter so that they can experience the cold temperatures that they love so much. If this would have been that situation, I think that I would have understood it a lot more. However, this whole situation had nothing to do with how much they loved their air conditioner. In fact, they don’t even have an air conditioner in their home. They opened their windows because the furnace was making their house warm. They have their furnace set to 80 degrees, and when they get too warm, they choose to open the windows instead of adjusting the thermostat. There are so many issues with using your furnace like this. First of all, if you open the window while the furnace is still running, it is only going to cause your furnace to run more. If you are too hot because of your furnace, you will save money by just adjusting your thermostat to a better temperature. The only reason that they didn’t want to adjust the temperature was that the thermostat was in a different room. They have no sense of responsibility when it comes to money, and this thing with the furnace shows you why.
