I’m really thankful that I purchased and installed a smart thermostat.
- I knew about all the benefits like the WIFI capability, control features, and efficient programmability before I purchased it, but I was the most excited about the smart thermostat running itself for me.
I hated controlling the temperature all day long in order to run my HVAC system efficiently, which is why I started researching smart thermostats in the first place. The smart thermostat has been installed in my home for almost 6 months now, and I can honestly say that it’s everything I thought it would be and more. My energy consumption has decreased and my monthly utility bills are lower than they’ve ever been. Last week, I received a notification on my cell phone from my smart thermostat, telling me that something was wrong. According to the app, my furnace was running constantly but my house wasn’t getting warmer. I was stuck at work until 5, so I called an HVAC company and told them about the issue. They agreed to meet me at my house at 5:30 to check out my furnace. Thankfully, they were able to find the problem right away and my furnace was running normally again by the time I ate dinner. If I wouldn’t have had a smart thermostat, then I wouldn’t have noticed an issue until I got home and then I probably wouldn’t have been able to hire an HVAC professional until the next day. During this time, I was able to prevent further damage from happening.
