I can remember the first time I saw a story on the news about smart thermostats.
- At that time, I had no idea what a smart thermostat was but I was able to learn about them.
When I learned that you could adjust the temperature control settings remotely with your smartphone, I knew that I had to get one of these smart thermostats! When they first came out, they were actually very popular and it was hard to get one because everybody was buying them. I was lucky because I had a few friends camp in line outside of one of the stores to purchase them when they were available for sale. I wasn’t able to be there with them, but they made sure to buy me one of the smart thermostats. We all were amazed when we first installed our smart thermostats. They were like a dream come true. Not only were you able to adjust the temperature control settings with your phone, but the smart thermostat learned your preferred temperature control settings. Now smart thermostats have actually improved over the years with features like geofencing, touch screens, and other cool features. The geofencing is really nice because the smart thermostat knows to shut down to minimal settings when you leave the house. I actually have a smart thermostat with that feature today, and I absolutely love it. I used to forget a lot to adjust the temperature control settings when I would leave the house, but I don’t have to worry about that any longer. HVAC technology is truly amazing.
