My dad has a strict rule about turning on the heat at the beginning of each season, however for some reason he decided that September 1st was the afternoon that he would turn on the heat for the first time each year.
I guess that this is crazy because my buddy and I had truly frosty weather long before that but he insists that he won’t spend the extra currency on heating the home prior to that date.
For this reason the entire family sits around freezing while our friends and neighbors are moderate in their homes… Dad says that simply lighting a fire in the fireplace is all my buddy and I need to do to take the chill off of the home but it only works in the room where the fireplace is located, but once you leave that space and head off to the kitchen or your living room it is downright cold. The funny part is that even the animal complains in her own way about being too frosty because she refuses to leave the residing room at the end of the evening. Dad has to drag her down the hall to their living room where she has her crate and she sits there whining because she doesn’t want to be away from the fire. It is pretty exhausting when even the critters are complaining about it being frosty and yet dad will not turn on the heat. All I know is when I have a home of my own I will turn on the heat whenever I want and simply pay to run it because it is not worth being frosty for no reason.
