I have to bundle up because my wife loves turning up the air conditioner

Though my wife is a small lady, she really loves air conditioning.

She was born and raised in the far North, where the highest temperature didn’t get above 60 degrees in the Summer, and most of the year was very chilly.

When we got married, I told her that we would be moving a little farther south than she was used to, but it would still be chilly in the Winter. During the Summer, I promised that we would use the air conditioner to her level of comfort, and I told her that I would learn to cope with whatever temperatures that she liked. I regret making that promise! It seems like she never turns off that air conditioner. Though I have a powerful and efficient central air conditioner for our house, she claims that the coldest temperature on the thermostat is still a bit warm for her. That is crazy for me because I am shivering during the Summer. I spend most of my time in the garage, where I only have a window air conditioner that I barely turn on. I would rather be sweaty than stand in that freezer that once was my house. During the Winter, she uses the furnace, but she sets it at 60 degrees, which she considers to be pretty warm. Thankfully, it is warm enough with the furnace to prevent the pipes from freezing, and 60 degrees is definitely better than the temperatures outside, but I wish I didn’t have to bundle up all the time in my own home. Besides, you should see the electric bill in the Summer after running the air conditioner the way that we do!
