Fighting with the thermostat

I have been having a really difficult time sleeping at night. I am not referring to the insomnia I was diagnosed with years ago, or the fact that a have a 10 week old puppy at home. Surprisingly, those things do not phase me. What is causing my sleeping issue is the strange temperature variations in the new apartment we just moved into. My boyfriend and I have a pretty good communication stream going as far as relationships go. It seems when it comes to our temperature preferences, we’re not so communicative. We received a notice from the maintenance supervisor last week, saying that our air conditioning would be shut off for the rest of the year. Well as it stands, it’s technically fall, but we are still experiencing summer weather. Therefore, it’s extremely warm in the apartment, and we cannot cool it down. When I get home from work, I open the sliding glass door to the balcony and let the air in, and by that time it is usually a decent temperature combination between the outdoor temp and the indoor temp. By the time Bryce gets home from work a few hours later, it is too cool outside, and I close the glass door. We then get ready for bed, and I turn the heat on very low and we go to sleep. I keep waking up frozen to the touch. Well last night, I woke up enough to actually get up and take a look at the thermostat. The heat was switched to the off position, and the door was open, and the fan was on. When we discussed it this morning, he told me that he woke up in the middle of the night, and since it is so warm, he opens the door, turns on the fan, and shuts off the heat. No wonder neither of us are sleeping. We need to have a heating and cooling intervention so that we can find a happy medium.
