This is probably going to sound really petty, but it is driving me insane and I don't know what to do anymore.
I live with three other people. We were friends before we got this house, and always got on really well, hence why we chose to live together.
Mostly things have been fine. Occasionally there are rants/arguments about mess (2 of the people have high clean standards and one guy has none whatsoever) but these are normal I expect.
The problem I have is the heating.
The house is a bit old, and the radiators don't turn off properly - I have mine on 'off' but it is still a bit on. Some of them don't turn off at all
And the boiler is in one of the guy's rooms (call him X). Which means he has total control over it. And he 'gets cold' really easily so he turns it on a LOT (I say 'gets cold' because he has his window open a lot). And he doesn't really leave the house, so whenever he is in, it is on. It is half past 2 in the morning now, and the heating is on. Which is why I am making this thread, as it is the only alternative to smashing his door down and screaming.
Is this unreasonable for me to be annoyed? I don't know anymore. I am growing so tired of knocking on his door asking him to turn it off (I tried 'down' but he said there is no thermostat). I feel like such a nag/bitch always doing it, but when I have friends come to the house and say it feels like a sauna, when I have to sleep with the window open because I am too hot, there is clearly a problem.
The other two are trying to keep out of it; I know other girl sometimes has problems sleeping because her bed is right by radiator. And the other guy (Y) is out so much I guess it doesn't bother him.
I keep telling X to wear a jumper/pjs (he sleeps naked), slippers and so on and sometimes he'll put a hoody on but often I come home from uni in the middle of the day, say 3pm and he is sitting in his t-shirt with the heating on! And the house gets so hot I am uncomfortable. I walk round with next to nothing on.
I am concerned about the heating bill, for sure, I am not made of money, but we don't get that until the end of December, so perhaps that is something he will not understand until we are presented with a massive bill.
Please can people tell me if I am being unreasonable, because I don't know anymore and I am getting so upset about this, and I really am tired of knocking on the door and having to ask. If the boiler was in a communal space it might be easier. He will turn it off generally when I ask, but doesn't learn - do I have to keep doing this forever? And what at night, I don't know if he's asleep now and just left it on, or if he's up.
My dad told me I should not argue about it as it will only make the house horrible, and I know he's right. We used to be good friends but I can't deal with this.
