Cetkat Posted October 16, 2011 Share Posted October 16, 2011 So, yeah... the single one qualification I wrote on my roommate matching card was: "Must be ok with thermostat set to 70 * F" I've lived here before and that's what it took to be comfortable. However, my unit has a new A/C unit.. so 70 became 72-73. So, that's already a compromise.. and (FYI) where it was already set when I moved in. NOW - very recently, a single certain roommate keeps turning it up. And not just a little bit - ALOT. Like, it'll be 72/73.. and she'll move it to 77. I get hot.. move it back down. If i'm hot and it's on 73, 9 times out of 10, I'll just leave it - just to be nice. Tonight. She just put it on 78 and turned it off. FUCK THAT SHIT!! Tomorrow morning I'm going to play electrician and figure out how to set it manually on the circuit board to where it cannot be adjusted by the digital reader. I'm pretty sure I can do that. It won't kick on and off.. but the controls should still look like they work. If maintenance catches it.. so what? Prove it. I can tolerate alot - but actually turning it OFF in FLORIDA!? That's simply spiteful. It's going to get hotter than 78, even with the lower temps we're having now. I know some of you may say, "well, I leave my A/C on 78 and it's comfortable." Alright, good for you. However, that was never where it was set when I moved in and it's definitely not the consensus of three people. The second person agrees with me. She turns it back down also. You want to piss me off - that's how you do it. I'm done playing nice. Game Over. So, yeah.. if any of you have electrical training and know how to do this, I would be quite happy to listen to any suggestions... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
