My grandmother did not understand the need for a smart thermostat

Trying to explain to my grandma the need for an intelligent temperature regulator was futile.

Nana could not understand why she needed to replace something that was working, but I told her how a thermostat could positively impact her indoor comfort by controlling her home’s temperature, air quality, and humidity. We were also looking at peculiar A/C equipment to replace the aged heater. After her declining or having something negative to say about every unit we looked at, I finally realized that she did not want a replacement. I insisted on it since her system had a poor air purification system, and she had developed some minor respiratory health concerns. We had bought her a new air purification gadget, but it felt necessary to replace the entire system. After minutes of going through the whole process, she was still adamant that her HVAC was okay. I advocated that we call the home repair that professionally deals with indoor air quality systems so that they could repair the unit. The duct cleaning was our main concern, and I was sure that duct sealing was inevitable, given how aged the entire system was. I also wanted them to replace the air filter. True to my words, when the A/C professional checked the unit, she told us it needed repair. I pitched the idea of a smart A/C to the expert, and she liked the idea, but the serviceman advocated that we start by installing a whole-home air purification first. The HVAC contractor installed the system and told us we could rest straight-forward where air purification was anxious! When I told our grandma about the intelligence system, she appreciated the idea, and we decided to make it our next project.
