And soon, my family is going to realize that they are no longer able to manually adjust the thermostat setting.
I just absolutely love it when I can actually do something to perhaps mitigate a problem. And having to satisfy plenty of people when it comes to the heating and cooling in this house was a problem. I looked into getting zone controlled HVAC. But after inquiring about the cost through the HVAC company, I wasn’t going there. Zone controlled HVAC would be really nice. But I think maybe we’ll wait until we have to replace the HVAC unit in a few years. For now, I just wanted some sort of solution to keep everyone’s hands off the thermostat setting. I couldn’t turn my head for a second before one or another of my family was readjusting the thermostat setting. This was not just annoying, it was costing us a big pile of money. The whole thing about keeping good thermostat discipline is that it improves the efficiency of the HVAC equipment. When people are constantly yanking that thermostat setting around, it ends up ruining everything. Going into Spring this year, I’m not doing this again. The air conditioning bills were frightful last year. Thanks to a new thermostat upgrade by the HVAC professionals, I won’t have to worry with that again. We now have a smart thermostat in our home. Soon, there will be some air conditioning demand as things begin to heat up. And soon, my family is going to realize that they are no longer able to manually adjust the thermostat setting. The smart thermostat has a lock out mode and I’m the one with the code. I tried to be reasonable and perhaps there will be some zone controlled HVAC in the future. But right now, I’m going to steady our air conditioning costs with that smart thermostat.
