We just love our new smart thermostat, and it’s been worth every penny we spent on it. It’s surpassed our expectations, saving us money on our utility bill as well as being as smart as its name implies. The thermostat quickly learned our daily and weekly schedule, then adjusts the indoor temperature as we come and go from the house. We can also rest assured that the furnace is operating properly by checking the companion app. The app lets us know at what temperature the house is heated at any given time. The wi fi feature allows us to change the temperature settings if our schedule is thrown off for any reason, such as staying later at work. We can even adjust the setting from the comfort of our bed, just in case we’re too hot or too cold at night. If there’s a power outage, we get an alert from the smart thermostat in addition to a notification if anything throws off the normal settings. And talk about smart – it’s as if the thermostat is actually communicating with us when we get monthly energy reports and tips on saving even more on our utility expense. We’ve always found our smart thermostat incredibly easy to operate, although some people we know who purchased earlier generations of smart thermostats haven’t, making the programming a bit more problematic. Finally, our smart thermostat has a feature that allows custom programming while we’re away on vacation. At first I worried that it would mess up our regular schedule settings. But the vacation settings are completely separate from non-vacation ones, avoiding confusion and reprogramming once the vacation is over. The smart thermostat has completely won us over, and we’re the first ones to encourage others to purchase one as well.
