My dear, sweet, NON-detailed husband......he tries. Really. But there are a few things that just escape him.
We installed a programmable thermostat about 6 weeks ago. Our super super SUPER old one was so inaccurate that who knows what the actual temperature in the house was set at. This one allows for 4 different settings per day, and a different program for weekdays and weekends.
I have said numerous times, "I don't think it is working right." He said, in his best husband-y voice...."Yes it is." (Sidenote: Every marriage has its own dynamic. Ours consists of him doing "husband" jobs, me questioning it, him swearing it is right, and me pointing out all the things that aren't.)
I insisted on looking at the instructions yesterday. And actually, it is quite easy to program. Step one: set the current time on the thermostat.
And herein lies the problem. G-man set the timer 12 hrs off. So the night program was running during the day, and vice versa. I have been overriding the program because it was so cold in the house. Essentially, we have had the house at a constant temperature, vs "programmed" temps.
AM is not the same as PM.
Love ya schmoopie....but you are not the detail one.
