Since my husband and I both work long hours, our responsibilities tend to pile up on us. Between running one kid to practice and the other off at chorus, it seems like we never have a minute to keep up with the house. We are always running out of groceries before we get a chance to make it to the store. The laundry piles up in the blink of an eye and before you know it, the whole house needs to be cleaned. There is no time to handle troubles with the house systems or appliances. We need to know that those kinds of things are running safely and efficiently. That’s why I set up a plan with our local HVAC technician. He comes in to inspect and clean our heating and cooling units to optimize performance, promote dependability, and ensure that our units last as long as possible. During routine repair last year, the professional recommended that I upgrade my seasoned thermostat to a modern, WIFI alternative. At first, I was a bit reluctant because of the extra expense. However, I was eager to have the smart thermostat installed when I learned about all of the features. With WIFI connectivity, I can access control of the heating plus cooling system from my iphone or laptop. I’m able to lower or raise temperature settings to conserve energy when my family is not home plus ensure perfect comfort when all of us return. Plus, the thermostat built a program according to our official schedule for even greater convenience. I get alerts for necessary service, filter change requirements, power outages plus temperature fluctuations. It provides helpful information, such as energy tracking, energy saving tips, plus humidity levels. The smart thermostat makes it much easier to manage our busy lives.
