My elderly parents barely use their central air conditioning

My parents are both in their nineties plus in good health. They moved from the old farmhome into a ranch in the town a few years back. They just appreciate having close neighbors, and living within walking distance of the post office, grocery store, plus bank. The home needed certainly little improvement. About the only high ticket item that they added was central air conditioning, since their fans just weren’t doing the trick. All of us were honestly satisfied that they had it installed plus thought that my friend and I could finally pay them a visit in the Summer without dripping with sweat profusely. We were wrong! They keep the temperature control set at seventy eight degrees! I get it that older people feel colder than do younger people – such as myself. But when I sit in their home to visit, I am honestly dripping with sweat – but I dress accordingly. My father hates to lower the temperature setting even one degree plus will, instead, offer to turn a fan on that blows directly on me. This week when I arrived at their house, I immediately asked for the fan before I sat down, however unluckyly, they had lent their fan to someone who had out-of-town guests staying with them. I feel the expression on my face was enough to convince my father that he should turn the temperature control down – by one degree! In the meantime, I poured myself a tall glass of cold water plus picked up a magazine to fan myself while my friend and I visited. Of course both of my parents thought that there was something wrong with ME! My father even asked if I had high blood pressure.
