I am going to tell you why a smart thermostat is great.
Unlike with a traditional thermostat, where it simply heats and cools your home, a smart thermostat comes with all kinds of fancy options. It can learn your routines and turn on and off in accordance to when you are home or not. This is a great option if you are gone a lot and don’t want your HVAC system running and driving up your energy bills. It is something I’ve really been using to the full extent. I no longer have to worry about turning my heater or air conditioning system on for my children when they get home from school because with the smart thermostat it has learned exactly when my children are away from school and automatically kicks on so that they have the cool AC to relax to. My kids will have as much as I do and nobody in my house has complained about the smart thermostat. It really can give you the perfect amount of climate control that you need. My only regret with a smart thermostat is not finding out about how a programmable thermostat works sooner. If I had known then what I know now I would have bought one years ago! And I think this whole time I had seen some for sale and I never even thought of getting one. That’s years worth of indoor comfort potentially wasted! I suppose it doesn’t matter too much now, the main thing is that I have the program both thermostat now and is working well for me.
