Wouldn't that cost more? Because it tries to keep the temperature at a constant level I think so what you'd do is cool the room when you're in it, leave for awhile so the room gets warm, then when you return you make the AC work its ass off to cool the room. I think when you just leave it on it'll fire spurts of cold air into the room to keep it at a constant level i.e antarctica snowstorm. Hell, I may be completely wrong on this but that's what I think.

Offer to pay the electric bill and then hold your dad too it. Then you'll remember to turn it off.
(Yes, I'm a dad).

Well, my A/C is like 30 years old and it has a thermostat.

I don't know you, but when I turn on the A/C I close my bedroom's door, so if you do the same, just make a circuit with your door.
Door opened = A/C disabled
Door closed = A/C enabled

Then maybe a motion sensor wired to a timer.
So when you "don't move" for like 10 minutes A/C will be automatically disabled.

If it's the kind that goes in a window, you can pick those up for usually under $100USD AND like Cranberry said, they are way more efficient. It'll save you money and headaches.
