Husband set HVAC budget


I know plenty of people who have disputes with their spouse about finances for one reason or another.

It seems like most husbands and wives have different ideas about how it is appropriate to spend money, and it sparks quite a bit of disagreement.

Most couples seems to bicker about shopping, travelling, and eating expenses, but I don’t think anyone has the same argument my boyfriend and I are engaged in. He has actually set a monthly budget for how much I can spend on HVAC usage. I know, I know, this makes it seem like I’m running our AC and furnace 24/7 with no regard for our energy usage or the effects on the environment; I promise, this is not the case. I simply like to feel adequately warm during the day time, and very cold at night, and my boyfriend doesn’t care as much about his external air temperature. Because it isn’t a concern to him, he thinks that my thermostat programming is absolutely unecessary. I keep trying to tell him that it’s a necessity for me, that I can’t work during the day when I’m cold or sleep at night when I’m too warm, but he thinks I’m being dramatic. That’s when he set a strict limit on how much we would pay for energy bills every month, and began watching the thermostat like a hawk. He knows every time I adjust the temperature settings, and he keeps a log. I know everyone has their disagreements, but this HVAC policing is going to drive me up the wall.
