Every year, millions of people travel during the holidays! Personally, I am always away from my dwelling during holiday as well, as I normally head up North to celebrate. I live in the Southern part of the nation, plus I am yet to get used to seeing Christmas lights on the palm trees! Don’t get me wrong, they regularly look pretty but for some reason, seeing them never sat well with me. It’s especially jarring when it’s 77 degrees outside plus there are Christmas lights on the trees. Perhaps it’s because I grew up in the North plus the holidays are supposed to be frigid, not 77 degrees outside. Anyway, when I travel, I always have to figure out how to set my temperature control device when I am gone. The recommendation for the optimum temperature control device setting in the Winter is 77 degrees when I am at my dwelling, but I never know how to set my control device when I am away. So, I improvised plus lowered the temperature on my control device to 65 degrees. I am not even sure if my HVAC appliance cycled on while I was away. If I had a programmable or a Smart control device this would be much more simple to control, however since I have not gotten one of those control appliances, I have to set mine the old-fashioned way. In time, I will invest in a Smart control appliance because it would help to better regulate the temperature in my dwelling, however not to mention that it would also save cash plus I won’t ever have to agonize about how to set my control appliance when I leave for a trip.
