I didn’t think that I would ever be the kind of person to get a smart thermostat, and the reason isn’t because I have anything against smart thermostats.
I’ve seen some programs with both thermostats and they’re very nice units, however I was more than happy with my old daughter so I didn’t see a need to upgrade to anything fancy.
That wasn’t until my old bathroom set sorry going out on me. Despite my best efforts to keep it in good condition, it could only last so long and like with anything and had an expiration date. When I went to a local heating and AC business to see what HVAC products they had available, I went to the area where they stored all their thermostats. I started looking at all the different options and I couldn’t help but to be alert by the smart thermostats. These advertised that they were programmable and could learn your schedule. You can control them with your phone because they are able to connect to the wi-fi, and I thought it was really cool that you had the option to control your heating and cooling system from anywhere inside your house or even outside your house. I asked the heating and AC technician to confirm if it was true that if I was away from home but wanted to set my thermostat to a certain temperature so that it would be that temperature by the time I arrived if the smart thermostat I was able to do that. He confirmed to me that it was and that day I bought a smart thermostat. Even though my smart thermostat was something I hadn’t planned on, it was something that I’m glad I got.
