    The primary position of this research is to delineate design considerations for building a home energy management system that understands the dynamic nature of household structures; a system that can interact with situational variants and assist in temperature decision making, relieving user of added stressors during times of familial changes. This research discusses implications for building a home energy management system that considers household structures: changing needs when faced with a new heath situation or simply when life changes established routines. Home energy systems should be built to assist in decision making including how to set home temperature in order to maximize personal comfort and alleviate stress.
