Protecting the Peace: Prevent Your Family from Fighting Over the Thermostat

The temperature at which the thermostat in homes is set can be a hot topic (no pun intended…okay maybe a little!) While some may feel comfortable with low temperatures, others may want to feel a little toasty.  


So, how do you protect the peace and prevent your family from fighting over the thermostat? Let’s dive in and discuss some simple ways you can avoid these chaotic fights with your family next time a fight starts to arise. 






Are you always hot and your family is always cold? It can be an uphill battle trying to agree on a temperature to make everyone in the house comfortable, but there are ways to compromise.  


Compromising with your family on the temperature can save a lot of time and avoid potential arguments.  



The agreed-upon temperature should be somewhere in the middle of what everyone likes. If someone is too hot/cold, they can compromise by cuddling up with a blanket or wearing lighter clothes.  



Save Energy  


There is no denying the rising costs of, let’s face it, everything right now. Inflation has made the price of just about anything skyrocket but there are things that you can do within your home to keep your costs down 


One of the best things you can do is keep an eye on the energy that you are using to run your AC. Every degree counts when saving money, so try to find ways to cool off or warm up without always adjusting the AC, such as using a fan to circulate air 


Install a Smart Thermostat  


When all else fails, installing a smart thermostat will allow you and your spouse full control over the AC temperature. This will ensure that your kids can’t change the temperature any time they feel hot or cold.  


You can also investigate possibly getting different AC units for each room, known as mini splits, this way everyone can have their temperature set to the perfect degree when they go to sleep at night.
