The furnace or air conditioner would operate at maximum capacity all day long, maintaining my empty home at the ideal temperature. It took me quite a while to finally purchase and install a smart thermostat. First, I kept forgetting to research and figure out which type of thermostat would be best for my requirements. Then, I could never remember to stop at the hardware store and purchase the thermostat. It took me several weeks to get around to handling the installation. I was surprised that mounting the thermostat and connecting it to my internet was fairly easy. Programming the thermostat was simple, and it was has made a huge difference in monthly utility bills and comfort. The thermostat automatically adjusts according to my schedule, and reminds me when it’s time to replace the air filters. Plus, I can many adjustments at any time from my smartphone or computer.
