You really have to be careful when you are making arrangements to go on a vacation. You never know what you’re signing up for until you actually arrive at your destination and see the disappointment created by their beautiful photos online. At least, this has been my experience in more than one hotel that I’ve checked into. Even with 5 star ratings and promises of advanced indoor air temperature control, you can end up with a dirty, smelly hotel room that has next to no air temperature management system. That’s why, I decided that for my next vacation I would book an airbnb instead of a traditional hotel situation. I figured, people probably took better care of their airbnb rentals because they have income riding on it. It turns out, I can be wrong in every regard. When I arrived at the Airbnb I was shocked to find that it was connected to the main residence. Worse of all, my rented portion of the house was actually directly connected to their central heating and cooling system. We shared the same air ducts and vents, which meant we also had the same indoor air temperature control. The next week, I lived with the indoor air temperature preferences of some random strangers while I paid to be in their house. It was freezing cold all day while I tried to enjoy myself in my new surroundings. At night, it was burning hot and I couldn’t get a single wink of sleep. When I talked with the owners about adjusting the indoor air temperature, they replied that the thermostat settings worked fine for them. Never again.
