I have a cover over my thermostat as guests have abused the temp settings in the past. I control it remotely and inform guests in my house rule book I’d be happy to adjust to their preferences.
We’ve experienced a few issues over the past year where, if the guest felt the AC was too strong (summer) or heat too weak (winter) they’d turn on the oven or stove.
I’m obviously very concerned about this being a fire hazard. Today was the final straw though. A guest checked out at 11, and when the cleaner entered the apartment around 3, she found the oven on.
I’m wondering if there’s a technical solution for this. For example, could I get an oven that auto shuts off after a certain period of time? What are your thoughts?
