Don't adjust the temperature on the thermostat too often

I have a tendency to want things exactly a particular way.

The temperature in a room is something I obsess over, then for the longest time, I had a terrible habit concerning this.

I would fiddle within my thermostat way too often. For a while, I did not realize just how damaging this could be to my heating plus air condition system. I figured it was my Heating and Air Conditioning system, plus I could tweak it as often as I liked, because it’s all about having that perfectly comfortable temperature, however besides, I reasoned, the temperature swings extremely throughout the afternoon in my region of the country. It seemed only natural to adjust the thermostat many times throughout the afternoon. The complication with this is that the air conditioning or the furnace will have to cycle on plus off far more often than usual, which wears the system down. I eventually had to relent plus set a more constant temperature once I discovered that I was hurting my system, on afternoons in which I was spending most of my time at home, I simply had to set one single temperature that would be the most comfortable throughout the afternoon. Then, in the night, I would turn the thermostat down a couple degrees because sleep is aided by a cooler environment. Then of course, before I leave for work, I adjust the thermostat to use less energy to heat plus cool the home when no one is occupying it. This way I am putting less wear plus tear on my Heating and Air Conditioning system!
