There are more than enough reasons for me to get anxiety about Christmas. But the biggest reason is the fact that my house gets overrun by relatives. My mom and sister and my wife’s entier family are in and out of my house at Christmas. This is something that is not pleasant for me at all. But it’s Christmas and it’s family, right? For me, I’d love to just get cozy with the heat pump going and have it just be my wife and the kids. But since we have the bigger place, that’s just not going to happen. So why fight it is what I think. However, I also don’t like the fact that these people are also constantly yanking my HVAC thermostat all around either. One set needs more heating and the other set can’t get cool enough. It’s pretty crazy. This year, I have it sort of set up to mitigate that mess. What’s different this year is the fact that there are now 6 different thermostats in the house. I had the HVAC company come out and turn our existing HVAC equipment into zone controlled HVAC. This way, I know that I will at least be able to sleep. There is a separate HVAC thermostat in the master bedroom that my wife and I alone control. The rest of the family can now find there preferred zone control area for heating and cooling comfort as well. I still dread the holidays and the invasion of my home. At least the new HVAC upgrade will make it all a bit more comfortable.
