Pretty sure this isn’t current news to anyone… living with other people sucks.
I think the two of us can all assume that it is very strenuous to find people who can live in a single peaceful residence together without having a lot of issues.
Too many opinions in a single current home is entirely real, and it can cause a lot of issues. I think this is probably most obvious when you start considering your monthly bills and how they will be split up. For instance, have you ever tried to talk about the energy bill with your roommate? More specifically, how the heating, cooling, under quality control equipment that you are using in your house needs to be carefully managed to keep the energy bill in check? This is something that has to be discussed with your roommate before you ever accidentally sacrifice indoor air conditions while living together, then clearly, if you have a central indoor air temperature control program this gets too much harder. You only have a single option for indoor temps and quality with a substantial Heating and Air Conditioning system. As I’ve found, vastly differing opinions vis a vis the thermostat settings, heating, cooling, and air quality will often cause a lot of unneeded discomfort in the house. If people particularly don’t care about keeping up with the HVAC equipment to keep up with the air quality, then you get heating and cooling equipment breakdowns and higher energy costs. I knew all of this getting into our most recent roommate situation. But I never realized that they would refuse to chip in for air filter changes and pro Heating and Air Conditioning appointments because as he says “air quality doesn’t matter.” As someone with dire pollen irritations… I disagree. As for now, the two of us have crazy Heating and Air Conditioning bills every month with exhaustingly bad air quality. Only 9 more months until the lease is over.
