I decided to take the plunge and give a try to owning a smart thermostat.
I had been hearing all kinds of good things about smart thermostats over the last year or so and I finally went and got one.
Well I have to say that I really do not like this smart thermostat at all! Maybe it is because I am older, but I just do not understand the app to control it on the home computer and I certainly can not figure out the cell phone thing either. It seems very hard to operate it this way and I find myself using the smart thermostat the same as a digital thermostat, which totally defeated the whole reasoning behind getting the smart thermostat in the first place. I am going to end up returning this smart thermostat and just buying a standard digital thermostat like I had before it broke on me. Being older like I am, the simple stuff is the way I like it. All this technical babble and stuff is just too much for me. I realize it could be beneficial if I would just take the time to learn this modern heating and air conditioning technology. However to be perfectly honest, I do not have the patients nor the time to do so. Getting back to the basics is the best thing for me to do and just go on with what I have always done to operate a central heating and air conditioning system unit. And that is using a dial thermostat or a standard old school dial thermostat.
