I have been having a hard time sleeping at night lately. I am not referring to the insomnia I was diagnosed with years ago, or the fact that a have a 10 week old puppy at home. No, those things do not phase me surprisingly, however what is causing my sleeping issue is the different temperature variations in our house. My wife and I have a pretty fantastic communication system going, except it seems when it comes to our temperature preferences. We got a notice from the repair manager last week saying that our air conditioner would be shut off for the rest of the year. Well as it stands, it’s technically fall. We are still experiencing summer weather. When I get home from work, I open the sliding glass door to the balcony to let the air in. By that time, it is usually a relaxing temperature inside the house with the breeze coming from outside. When Jen gets home from work a few hours later, it is too cool outside to leave the door open, so I close it. When we get ready for bed, I turn the heat on really low and the two of us go to sleep… I’ve been waking up frozen. I wasn’t sure why until yesterday when I woke up to take a look at the thermostat. The heat was switched off, and the door was open, and the fan was on. When we discussed it the next day, she told me that she woke up in the middle of the night and was so hot that she opened the door, turned on the fan, and shut off the air. No wonder neither of us are sleeping. We need to have a heating and cooling intervention so that the two of us can find a happy medium.
