With my partner, one has to keep pressing when it comes to getting stuff that we need.
He’s the one who worries about spending money.
And I’m more like what’s the use of having money if you don’t use it. So the fact that it took 7 years for us to get a smart temperature control is a perfect example of how resistant he can be. When the smart temperature control came out, I was intrigued. I loved the idea of the new Heating and A/C technology that I didn’t have to worry about all the time. The smart temperature control was the latest Heating and A/C technology that would allow us to sort of walk away from always managing the heating and cooling output. And that’s for sure something we both have done since we became homeowners. We are always on the same page when it comes to saving money on stuff that we don’t need to overpay. Heating and cooling costs tend to fall into that category. So we identified a way to control the digital temperature monitoring device and spent time keeping track of the A/C. But with the smart temperature control, all we had to do was let it learn our patterns, adjust and save us even more money. It was a no brainer. But of course, my partner found every reason he could to resist. Thanks to the boys playing football in the house, I now have the smart temperature control I wanted. The old digital temperature control took a direct hit from an overthrown spiral. I should have thought of that a decade ago. Regardless, once the digital temperature control was in pieces on the floor, my partner didn’t have a choice but to comply with getting the latest HVAC technology.
