Thermostat goes on the fritz

Sometimes it seems like I just can’t win.

I have one of those lives that is plagued by inconvenience and disappointment.

I don’t want to be dramatic, but I can feel like I’m fighting a losing battle day after day. It specifically doesn’t help that I have terrible luck when it comes to technological devices. If there is a single gadget that requires battery power and wires, you can bet that it won’t work right for me. When I get around high-tech devices they tend to implode without reason. This was the case when it came to my central heating and cooling system, among my other indoor air handling devices. I’ve always had trouble getting my air conditioning unit and furnace to talk to my thermostat. When I had a dehumidification system running it was continually short-circuiting and burning out the fuses in my house. It never felt like I had trustworthy heating and cooling devices to begin with. I decided it would be a good idea to install a smart thermostat device so at least I could monitor my HVAC system from anywhere on Earth. That way, I would know if the air conditioning unit or furnace decided to stop working before I got home. Unfortunately, the smart thermostat doesn’t like me any more than my other HVAC devices do. Everyday I feel like the thermostat resets my programming and starts changing my indoor air handling settings. I never know what temperature I’m going to wake up to in the morning. I haven’t been able to correct the thermostat and I’m pretty sure my HVAC troubles have only gotten worse since it was installed.
