I had bought a smart thermostat and used it for almost a year.
- While it had many benefits including lowering my electric bill a little, I simply am just an old school kind of person and prefer a digital thermostat without all the different technology and all that which comes with a smart thermostat.
So next week I am going to be getting rid of my smart thermostat and giving it away to a friend, and then I will be buying a standard digital thermostat. It really is the only way to go for me. I feel much more relaxed and comfortable with a digital thermostat because it is cut and dry simple. I do not have to deal with computer apps or programing on my cell phone. I just get up and walk to the thermostat on the wall in the hallway and turn on the heating or the air conditioning with the temperature set wherever I want it to be, and that’s it! Easy working of my central heating and air conditioning system like it once used to be. This is the way that I prefer it. My friend who I am giving my smart thermostat to thinks I am crazy and just a middle aged fool, but he is more up to date with things because he has kids. I do not. So I do not have these young folks to teach me about today’s heating and air conditioning technology. So I will just continue to stick to the old as long as I can until I have no choice but to get with the modern times.
