I Have No Control Over The Thermostat

Thursday, April 29, 2010

In my apartment complex the small one bedroom apartments don't get to control their own heat or AC. The neighbors in the larger apartment next door do. Since we moved in this has been a problem. Last summer they would not turn the AC on AT ALL during the day (which meant we lived in a 90 degree apartment during the day) but then they would crank it up at about 7pm. Of course it was comfy for a short while but then it got cold, because the AC was high and it wasn't as warm outside. This winter, I lived underneath blankets and that was annoying but tolerable. I can do blankets.

But today was unbearable. It was a nice temperature in my apartment. I was happy. It was about 70 degrees out which is lovely for me. Suddenly I got really cold. I looked at my thermometer. 60. I felt cold air coming out of my vent and put on a sweatshirt to keep me warm. That's fine. About an hour and a half later I start sweating and was beginning to feel a little sick. I took off the sweatshirt and once again looked at my thermometer. 78 and hot air was still blowing through. I was in a tank top and dying from the heat. My fingers swell and ache when I get hot and I had to stop writing. I couldn't type or hold a pen comfortably.

Thank god I'm moving out. I can't stand this constant up and down. Set it to 70 and then leave it alone. Switch it from heat to AC or whatever you need to do but DO NOT SET THE TEMP REALLY LOW AND THEN WHEN YOU GET COLD SET IT UP REALLY HIGH. Your neighbor does not appreciate it. Glad I'm moving in a few weeks.
