Like most young people, when I first started living on my own, I assumed that many things would come naturally to me. Knowing how often to clean, what to cook, and how to mow my lawn seemed like simple things. Unfortunately, being an adult proved to be much harder than I imagined. Juggling finances and responsibilities looked much easier when I watched my parents do it. One of the things I struggled with the most was my HVAC system and it’s settings. It seemed that no matter what I did, I felt too hot or too cold. At home, work, and even school, I was subjected to whatever someone else wanted. Now, I am constantly struggling to find a constant temperature. It really had become a cycle of up and down until I read an article about programmable systems. This seemed like a great thing because I found out that I was most comfortable with one temperature control setting while at night, one when I did my workout, and another one still when I was trying to sleep/ Having many temperature settings was hard to keep up with. Programmable controls have the ability to change with your preferences, so that you can automatically adjust your settings throughout the day. Also, smart thermostats can be controlled remotely! I had this installed and the first day I noticed the difference. As an added bonus, my energy bills should be reduced because my HVAC system no longer has to work so hard to constantly change the temperatures but vast amounts. This will help to prolong the life of the system too.
