My Son Had Her Window Open For Cool Air

Recently, there’s been an increase in our utility bill! I was running our oil furnace and cooling system at optimal un-even temperatures, I was replacing the air filter officially, and our Heating and A/C specialist had just serviced our Heating and A/C idea less than 6 months ago.

I searched our lake house high and low and I couldn’t find any leaks where the air might be slipping out, one night, I woke up feeling truly boiling and I couldn’t cool down, however while I was lying there in bed with no covers on, I realized that our oil furnace was continuously running.

I waited for it to stop, but it didn’t! I never heard our oil furnace run this much during the afternoontime, but I didn’t understand why it was running so much at night. I went down the hall to find the control unit, which was directly across from our son’s room. I’ve always told him that she wasn’t allowed to touch the control unit settings, so she knows better, the control unit settings weren’t changed, but it was significantly colder in that part in front of our son’s door. When I opened up her door, I noticed that her bedroom window was wide open. There was a strong breeze coming in, but our daughter was fast asleep. I quietly shut the window and waited for our control unit to notice that it wasn’t so chilly anymore. When I asked our daughter why her window was open the next day, she told myself and others that she was truly boiling during the night, however she knew she could not touch the control unit settings.
