My guy and I decided to upgrade to a smart thermostat.
All of us can each run the thermostat from our phones.
On one hand it is truly nice having the convenience. I can be outside and decide to shut the thermostat off to save some money. I can be on our way new home from work, on vacation or even at an appointment and adjust the heating and cooling. Another perk is the thermostat lets myself and others guess if there are air filter swings or if I have it set at an energy efficient setting. The only con is that it is easy to change the heating and A/C now. When our guy and I owned a dial thermostat, it all depended on who wanted it more. My guy and I don’t agree on what is a comfortable temperature. He wants to have cooling and I want heating, however before it was whoever would get up and make the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C do it got to control the thermostat, and usually I won since I hated being cold. Now that our guy can absolutely adjust it from his phone, I am cold all the time. I frequently wake up in the middle of the night, adjust the thermostat and go back to bed. I then wake up early in the morning cold. The multiple of us change the thermostat so much I am sad about our weekly program. The thermostat learns what your Heating, Ventilation plus A/C needs are for the week by your adjustments. I can’t even imagine how different ours is going to be.
