Smart thermostats are also really cool because you can change the temperature using your phone anywhere in the world (or in your bed if you’re too lazy to get up and adjust the temperature!)
I have an older home. I love my historic home because I’m a huge history buff and love to feel connected to the past. However, I am also the type of person who loves modernity and keeping up with the latest trends. I suppose you could describe me as “complex” (flips emo hair out of eyes). Anyway, I’ve been looking at options for my new HVAC system. I recently upgraded my air conditioner as the old one finally killed over. When I upgraded the air conditioner, the HVAC technician was asking me about upgrading my dial thermostat. Obviously, from the name “dial thermostat”, you can fairly assume that I have an old thermostat. A very old thermostat. I spoke with the HVAC technician about smart thermostats and he said that they are highly recommended. Smart thermostats will raise and lower the temperature based on whether or not you are home. They are more efficient and save people money on their monthly heating and cooling bills. Smart thermostats are also really cool because you can change the temperature using your phone anywhere in the world (or in your bed if you’re too lazy to get up and adjust the temperature!). In addition to all of that, smart thermostats are very affordable and easy to install. That sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? I’m sold on a smart thermostat. Here’s my question: will a smart thermostat work in an old house? I know that sounds a little silly, but I’ve had a lot of technology not work in the past just because of the reality of living in an historic home.
