Thermostat [Jul. 10th, 2002|11:23 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I turn my thermostat off at night because I'm a conscientious energy-saving homeowner and stuff, right? But when my lazy ass doesn't wake up until 11am and it's already hot inside... no good.

I need to go get a thermostat worth more than $10. I don't understand why the previous owners (who designed/built the house) put in an air conditioning & heating system that obviously cost much more than $10 and then cheaped-out on the cheapest part of the system. Good thermostats are only $60-$120.

*shrug* ... they probably weren't as lazy as me.

Anyway.... first I have to shower and stuff.

And then I'll probably do something else anyway. I've been thinking about this awhile but keep putting it off.

I thought you were going to make or use some sort of computer-controlled thermostat that knew whether or not you were in the house... What happened to that idea? Yeah - you are lazy, hah!

lots of options on those fronts - the simplest approach being an X10 thermostat - I'll prob. just get lazy and pick up one of these when my house finishes in october
