Yeah, I see that you want to match an instance of the cooling device with
a cooling state for that cooling device.

But, because you also force the thing to be increasing / decreasing 1 by 1,
I don't understand why you don't have a similar implementation of the
PASSIVE type. Just get its cur state and set the next state based on the curr.
How that would be different than what you are currently doing?

If you want to have a 1 to 1 relation between cooling device instance and cooling
device state, then you could do the jumps I mentioned, but only if you would
have the cooling state reference stored somewhere.

What bugs me is the fact that you have to be iterating in the cooling device list to determine
the next cooling state.
