When our hubby advocated getting a smart thermostat, I figured I wouldn’t use it.
I am not the most technologically savvy person out there, and any up-to-date tech item takes myself and others a while to figure out.
I also don’t have firm opinions on what the Heating as well as A/C unit should be set to. My hubby listed all the features a smart thermostat had. I didn’t believe any were for me. After he installed the thermostat I realized how often I use it. My number one feature is that when I walk by, the smart thermostat lights up. It tells myself and others the temperature outside currently, what it is mid day and what it will be at night. If I linger near it, it tells myself and others the indoor temperature. I never realized how curious I was about indoor and outdoor hot and cold temperatures. I could check everything on our iphone, although I chose to stop by our thermostat. I use that feature to decide when I work out, if I want to work outside or system our day. I don’t change the heating and cooling settings. I will say I do appreciate late at night decreasing the thermostat from our bed. There have been a few times where I was so cold. It was nice picking up our iphone, turning on the gas furnace and then going to sleep. I didn’t honestly wake myself up or inconvenience myself. I now see why more and more people are going with a smart thermostat. It is convenient, pretty and it does save a lot of energy. The thermostat knows when we are in the beach house or not.
