Setting the temperature control higher doesn’t heat the dwelling up faster

I woke up in the middle of the night last night in addition to was roasting hot.

I uncovered in addition to went to the temperature control in addition to found that it had been set to 98 degrees in addition to the heater was still on.

I immediately knew it was my hubby who did it! Tonight was the first night my friend and I had used the heater for many months. My enjoyable friend and I got dwelling in addition to it was chilly inside. My hubby seems to suppose that by turning the heater up higher, it will heat up faster. I keep telling him it doesn’t work that way in addition to to just set the temperature control to the temperature she would like the dwelling to be; But of course, I didn’t pay attention when she turned the heater on last night, but usually, she remembers in addition to turns the temperature control back down once the dwelling is comfortable… She must have forgotten tonight in addition to now my friend and I have wasted a lot of energy heating up the dwelling this way. I also knew I wouldn’t be able to sleep in that kind of heat so I opened a few windows in addition to reset the temperature control to about 20 degrees colder. About two hours later, I was finally able to sleep again. Of course, she slept through the whole incident but I let him know what she had done this morning. She promised it won’t happen again but I know it will. That is, unless I check the temperature control before bed myself. Oh well, I assume my friend and I all have quirks that annoy each other. However, she might learn her lesson when she sees the utility bill.
