I recently just graduated from college. Getting through it all was real work and a big task all together! I was lucky enough to not have to go away to school or play the whole share a dorm room game with some strange idiot that may be a psycho in disguise. One of the main reasons for this is because I like my space, and I like having complete control over my own heating and cooling surroundings! I live alone, and I love it that way. I can set the thermostat on the wall to whatever temperature suits me that day. If it is summer time, I can crank it and freeze out the whole place if I wanted to, as well as I can burn in a furnace and crank the heating as high as ever in the winter time months if I am freezing. I can tell you, when I was preparing for the big test that decided if I graduated or not, if it was not for my own controlling of my heating and cooling system by setting the thermostat on the wall to what i needed to have it at, I probably would have failed the thing, and would be stuck having to go through college and spend double the money all over again till I got it right! In a way, having proper heating and cooling to my own personal needs has created a money saving tip that should be placed on an energy saving tip website! Because if you do not control your own heating and cooling, you could spend double on school costs if in college!
