My grandma and grandpa’s house is the best to go to when my whole family is in town.
My grandpa likes to set everything up in the backyard with chairs and tables.
My grandma cooks a plethora of food to feed all of her children and grandchildren. It is the best time. She’s Italian so she cooks a lot of homemade Italian food that she has grown up with. She’s the best cook out of our family. Sometimes when she’s cooking, she has the oven on and the kitchen gets a little hot. My grandma will tell me to turn the thermostat down so the air conditioning unit can kick on. I’ll go to the thermostat and turn the knob. At my house I have a programmable thermostat. I mentioned to my grandmother if she’s asked her HVAC provider about having a programmable thermostat. She told me it wasn’t something that was on her mind when they would come to her house. She said she had an appointment with them next week. The week after I went to her house when the HVAC technician came. I mentioned to him about the programmable thermostat. He recommended strongly that my grandparents install one. This is because it can save energy and money all year round. Not to mention it’s easy to operate. Having a programmable thermostat allows you to set a certain temperature when you’re home and when you’re away from home. My grandparents were interested because they’re always looking to save money now that they’re retired.
