My utility bill would be outrageous! My parent’s basement however, is naturally 65 degrees and it feels wonderful
Even though I’m an adult and I own my own house, I love spending the night at my parent’s house. Whenever I say this to other people, they usually assume that I’m crazy. Nobody my age likes to be at their parent’s house for extended amounts of time. While I agree to some extent, I have a very specific reason why I like to stay there. When my parents renovated their basement, they added a guest bedroom and it became the place I stayed whenever I visited. It’s a simple room with a bed and a dresser and there’s nothing luxurious about it. There’s not even a bathroom in the renovated basement, which means that I have to walk all the way upstairs to get to it. You may be asking yourself why I’m so fond of it then. The answer is simple: the basement is much cooler than the rest of the house. Because the basement is cooler, I’m able to sleep peacefully and uninterrupted. I would never be able to cool my house to 65 degrees, especially in the summer. My utility bill would be outrageous! My parent’s basement however, is naturally 65 degrees and it feels wonderful. They did connect the central HVAC system to the basement, but it’s not needed during the summertime because the ground naturally lowers the temperature of the space. Because of this, my parents have closed all the air vents to keep cooler air from entering because it’s not worth adding more cool air.
