It is absolutely unbelievable when you think about it
I could not believe it when I realized this month that the dial thermostat I have that runs our central heating and air conditioning plan is over 30 years old! And it is still working just as nicely today as when I bought it over 3 decades ago. This is the sign of nice craftsmanship and it also shows that a dial thermostat may in fact be the best thermostat around. In my opinion I would say forget about all these stupid advanced forms of Heating and Air Conditioning technology that are all so complicated to older folks like me. Things like smart thermostats and even the proper digital thermostats. They may look and be futuristic or up-to-date or even look cool to young folks. But they would never last 30 years! As a matter of fact from what I know, both smart thermostats and the proper digital thermostats have a lifespan of around 10 years if you are blessed. Because most die on you within 5 years and then it is time to buy a new one. With this old dial thermostat I bet it will truly last me the rest of my life and then still be alive even after I am long gone! That is what I truthfully think just based on the fact that it has lasted me over 30 years and still going just as strong this month as it was back then. It is absolutely unbelievable when you think about it. I am just so happy that I made the choice to get this dial thermostat back then. I would not have had it any other way.
